Does your life feel out of balance? Peter Walsh can help you tackle everything in your busy life.
Most of us are so overwhelmed by work, bills, and school and family commitments that we rush from person to person and place to place without ever feeling satisfied—sometimes giving one area of our lives too much attention and other areas not enough. It’s always too little or too much! This crazy imbalance and the resulting stress and unhappiness you feel are the clutter that Peter Walsh helps you tackle in Enough Already!
Peter starts by explaining how the six key areas of your life—Family, Relationships, Work, Health, Money, and Spirituality are interrelated. He then shows you how, if one area of your life is cluttered, that clutter will creep into the other areas creating turmoil and imbalance in your life, family, work, and personal life. Peter offers a step-by-step plan to help you acknowledge and address the emotional and mental clutter that continually holds you back from living the more fulfilling life you deserve.
With his wry humor, constant encouragement, and the specific tips and practical advice he offers, Peter shows how to prioritize what matters in your life; let go of the stress and clutter; and regain your balance, focus, energy, and purpose. By following his simple plan you will begin to view your life and how you spend your time and energy in a completely new way. By embracing Peter’s approach you will finally be able to live a stress-free life of balance and fulfillment—the life that’s been buried under all your emotional clutter for years and the one you’ve always imagined.
In the same vein as What Color is Your Parachute, this book takes a broad view of careers and the world of work. Viewed through the lens of Zen Buddhism, the reader is invited to think about what work means to them, what satisfies them, and to develop a career that fits them spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
Drawing from real-life experience with a broad and varied portfolio, the authors cover all the aspects of writing for video games. They address narrative games specifically (which means a focus on first person shooters, roleplaying games, and adventure games) starting with an analysis of those types of games and proceeding to the role of the writer, asset management, project management, and more. Many of the chapters are applicable not just to other disciplines in game development and design, but also in other areas like web development that involves content.
From Kirkus Reviews (as “Watchfires to the North”):
Arthur minus the mumbo-jumbo, the round table and Excalibur–here Artyr, an indifferent warrior but a great general. This is the memoir of a king, Lucius Bedwyr Marcianus of Turris Alba, from the time he was sent out on his first mission at thirteen and returned with the badly wounded Artyr, to Artyr’s death ‘many years later while the chief of Bedwyr’s army. Bedwyr writes formally, almost regally, of their many battles, of their trip to New Rome (Constantinople) to learn the art of cavalry warfare, of his marriage (“”my dear Sybilla””), of many well-known characters–Gladhad (“”a mystic””), Gwenyfer (“”a good and loyal wife””), Mylan–their names spelled in the old way. Constant action is complemented by Bedwyr’s reflections on character and history; as human as any diary keeper, he subtly records his own maturing and that of his elusive cousin Gwenyfer, but Artyr, he comments, was never youthful. An anthropological record of the period, a realistic look at a legendary figure–Artyr or Arthur he’s especially convincing here.
From the publisher:
Fresh out of Cambridge University, the young Mycroft Holmes is already making a name for himself in government, working for the Secretary of State for War. Yet this most British of civil servants has strong ties to the faraway island of Trinidad, the birthplace of his best friend, Cyrus Douglas, a man of African descent, and where his fiancée Georgiana Sutton was raised.
Mycroft’s comfortable existence is overturned when Douglas receives troubling reports from home. There are rumors of mysterious disappearances, strange footprints in the sand, and spirits enticing children to their deaths, their bodies found drained of blood. Upon hearing the news, Georgiana abruptly departs for Trinidad. Near panic, Mycroft convinces Douglas that they should follow her, drawing the two men into a web of dark secrets that grows more treacherous with each step they take…
Written by NBA superstar Kareem Abdul- Jabbar and screenwriter Anna Waterhouse, Mycroft Holmes reveals the untold story of Sherlock’s older brother. This harrowing adventure changed his life, and set the stage for the man Mycroft would become: founder of the famous Diogenes Club and the hidden power behind the British government.
