If you want to live a better life, how can you do so? Like learning to play a musical instrument or another language, you need to be clear about the basics beforehand. This means describing what you value and what you need to do to move into realizing these values in your everyday life. Once your intentions are clear, again similar to playing a musical instrument, you must practice every day realizing those intentions. This is called practical wisdom--applying what you value into daily practice.
In a new book, Everyday Wisdom, writer and philosophy teacher Dr. John C. Morgan provides forty ways to live a deeper and more meaningful life, which he collected over the years from both students in his classes and congregations he served. Written clearly in short essays, Morgan offers pathways for finding your best self, including how to be more loving, peaceful, and intentional.
Being clear about your intentions and practicing realizing them every day is the wisdom needed to realize your potential. It's a daily practice but followed long enough becomes life changing. Essentially, living the good life is one that evolves over time and is a habit you choose to practice every day.
This book offers ways to create your book of life and keep a journal along the way, thus putting into daily practice what you value.
