If you are feeling burned out, fatigued by work and family obligations, you may want to take some time to reflect.  We all long to feel connected, joyful, and alive, but how do stop thinking about it and take some steps to lead an engaged life rather than stringing together fleeting moments of happiness.

John Busacker writes in his book, “Do Less, Be More – The Life Changing Power of Focus” that it begins with a realization that relationships matter more than anything, health determines your quality of life, work gives voice to your gifts, hobbies engage your energy beyond work, learning animates your imagination, and faith gives all of your life purpose.

Making a decision everyday about what to say “no” to and what to say “yes” to is a collection of pivotal moments.  Busacker’s book provides a roadmap to help take the first steps.
