A Life That Matters
Five Steps to Making a Difference
Invaluable insights for building a meaningful life
There comes a time in every person's life when they wonder: does anything I do really matter? In this inspiring book,
bestselling author P.K. Hallinan shows readers how to answer that question with a resounding yes! With encouraging stories from his life and others, Hallinan lays out five immensely practical steps readers can follow to achieve a more meaningful life:
- Work hard
- Go in the strength you have
- Finish what you start
- Be patient
- Help other people along the way
While other books and authors try to tell readers how to change their personality or way of thinking to find their purpose, P.K. Hallinan shows that true life change is not about thinking, but about doing. A Life That Matters does not try to change how people feel, but how they act. It teaches that no matter what someone is doing, with a redirection of focus he or she can make a real and lasting difference in the world. Life is a journey. A Life That Matters shows readers how to make their journey as productive and satisfying as possible.
