The Me Project: 21 Days to Living the Life You've Always Wanted

I’ve spent a lot of time this year planning, considering, and trying to balance my goals and priorities for the year. Seems that the older I get, the harder it is to know where to focus my priorities. I thought my time was not my own when I was raising and home schooling my son, but that was a piece of cake compared to an aging mom, a husband and a sister with multiple health issues, plus my own health problems, grad school, and running a business. Whew! That’s why I enjoyed Kathi Lipp’s The Me Project: 21 Days to Living the Life You’ve Always Wanted.

According to Daniel Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, taking small steps every day will not only help you stay committed to your goal, ¨but will also help you ultimately achieve that goal when obstacles come up. Kathi’s book is helping me do just that. She wants you and your friends to live out those dreams—and have some fun along the way.

It’s easy for women to forget the goals and dreams of our younger years. The busyness of everyday life gets in the way. To-do lists and crises replace goals. The Me Project provides women with fun and creative ways to bring back the sense of purpose and vitality that comes with living out the plans and dreams God has planted in our hearts. Kathi’s warm tone and laugh-out-loud humor motivates women to take daily steps toward intentional goals. The end result? We get back our lives and enjoy living in the confidence of a purposeful life in spite of our chaotic schedules. 

This handy guide coaches women to do one simple thing toward achieving our goals each day for three weeks. A woman experiencing the exhilaration of a rediscovered life offers more as a wife, mother, friend, volunteer, career woman and daughter. 

I have had the privilege of  being Kathi's friend and colleague. We were in the same writers' group for several years. This is Kathi's third "project" book. The others are The Husband Project and The Marriage Project. I felt those were  a little young for my audience, but The Me Project scratches right where we itch.

To motivate you, Kathi is offering a great drawing. Leave a comment here, with your email address, and Kathi will enter your name in a drawing for an incredible Starbucks basket.
