The Five Truths

Work-life balance has nothing to do with work. Really. It also doesn't matter what words you use to describe it. The fact is, most people share a similar desire to create easy joy and meaningful engagement across the roles, relationships and responsibilities that make up life.

Our current habits and perceptions often get us stuck and prevent us from creating the life we desire. Get unstuck, learn the truths about work-life balance.

After years in senior communication roles crafting content for executives, Jae collapsed from stress-related adrenal fatigue. This life-altering experience propelled her to research human behavior, neuroscience, mindfulness, and organizational relationship systems.

In 2008, Jae founded Simple Intentions and developed the Mindful Life™ Program, which includes four group coaching workshops to generate reflection, awareness and action at the organizational and individual levels. Jae has taught the skill of awareness to thousands of employees at multinational corporations in more than 50 countries including China, Russia, India, Japan, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, and the United States.

Jae contributes to the Awareness at Work column for Mindful Magazine, the Healthy Living section on Huffington Post as well as the Simple Intentions blog. Jae has a master’s degree in Communication Management from Colorado State University and a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Communication from Metropolitan State College of Denver. She holds certificates in co-active coaching and organizational relationship systems coaching and is the author of seven books.

A no nonsense book that does not coddle you or give you excuses.
Tells it like it is! The only thing I might have preferred was larger type size on a few pages, maybe an additional few simple diagrams or illustrations. Not that they are required, just for personal appreciation.

The title promises five truths and the author delivers.
The front piece of this book sets an intention. The fast paced delivery put a smile on my face.
The truths reach immediately to the heart of the matter. 
This is a quick read to remind you that the option to make another choice, leading to another outcome, is free and limitless. I hope I didn't spoil the ending for you.

I was given a copy of this book to review. I will enjoy refering back to its wisdom.
