Dan Tinen, "Focusing Your Life"
Our modern lives are filled with possibilities and options; from moment to moment we make choices about what we do, where we go, and what we pay attention to. How can we focus our lives on what really matters the most to us? How can we keep our brains on track instead of wandering off into distractions? Or is that wandering mind a useful tool all by itself? Inspired by the work of the psychologist Daniel Goleman, the author of "Emotional Intelligence".
