Rarely seen in a book about personal development, author Jim Aitkins gets extremely candid and transparent about his own personal life and history as he makes the case against striving for this elusive thing called Balance. He says it doesn't exist and he provides great examples.
Better Than Balance describes three questions that we all want to be able to say Yes to. When we have doubts about whether the answer is yes, we are more likely to experience chaos and a general lack of control of life's direction... to which we respond by trying to seek balance. Instead, Better Than Balance challenges us to take these questions seriously; to understand why we might struggle with them; and to be able to get to where we can definitely say Yes to all three of them.
WARNING: This book does briefly discuss sexual abuse, though not in any graphic detail at all, and a word many would find objectionable contained in a quote.
More importantly, this book does not just briefly discuss sexual abuse, it provides anyone with any sort of abuse in their past with reason to be hopeful about their future.
"Personal development," says Jim, "is not just for people who have got it mostly figured out and feel they need a tune up. Personal development is for the rest of us who often feel like we were starting out with two outs and two strikes and we've got some catching up to do." That is what Jim believes Better Than Balance will help the reader to do.
As always, Jim really appreciates feedback. That is especially the case with Better Than Balance because the content is so personal to him.
