There are a lot of books prescribing a balanced life.
My book shows what a truly balanced life looks like. Like a mosaic painting, my book is a collection of memories pieced together to show what is possible when you keep your life in balance, enjoying the richness of your family life each day, combining your pursuits of fun and health, and building material wealth one brick at a time.
While written in a light-hearted style, seeing myself as a small player in life’s human comedy, my book recounts what has worked for me as I have coasted to an easy win in the game of life.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN BY READING
HOW DID I DO THAT?
How I turned a journalism degree and a $500 investment into a multi-million-dollar, family-owned oil and gas producing company demonstrates how to get rich slowly, while enjoying the booms and enduring the busts in this fast moving, volatile industry.
PURSUIT OF PASSION
My quixotic basketball career, kicked off by playing Michael Jordan one-on-one at age 60 and pursued on fantasy camp courts around the country for the next 14 years, shows how tilting at windmills has been fun and good for my health, well past the time when conventional wisdom would have had me quit playing the game I love.
Most importantly, how I built my career while enjoying a 56-year (and counting) marriage and a wonderful family life as a husband, father and grandfather shows that putting your family first will not prevent you from achieving your personal goals.
