THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
Life Lessons for
A friend of mine wrote the book and so I read it (A) out of a certain sense of obligation and (B) not knowing what to expect from it. That said, it is clever, insightful, remarkably accurate in some of the things that hold people … absolutely including me … back from achieving their dreams. How clever, to use such a well known song for an equally well known metaphor. But, then, isn’t That’s What It’s All About? If you liked Who Moved My Cheese, you’ll love this book.
I just finished this delightful book…There has been something new I have wanted to put my time and heart into for over 8 years, but the getting through the learning process with the perfectionist side of me has put me failure mode and so it was set aside time after time. The chapter on Parts especially left hand, head and whole self has helped me, I can do this… and perfection isn’t a part of the learning process. Let it go!
Thank you Robert Young for a very insightful, encouraging, fun book.
Using the Hokey Pokey as a metaphor, this book demonstrates the ways you may be preventing yourself from seeing opportunities. After reading it, I was inspired to try new ideas and branch out without the same worry of failure.
Robert Allen Young’s philosophical exploration of the “Hokey Pokey” is amusing and insightful. Young is able to use the familiarity with the simple song to explore a multitude of concepts and lessons that offer an in-depth guide to inspiration and motivation in everyday life.
After cruising through this book — and cruise you will, thinking to yourself, “Yeah. Ok. I got it” — you’ll put it down and you’ll think about it. It’s an approachable concept written in a straightforward manner.
The real work happens, though, when you think about what you read some more. When you do the work to apply what you read to your life. You might find that these ideas seem almost too simple, too good to be true. But as you look at them from your unique and personal perspective, you’ll find where the words resonate.
There’s no magical cure in this book. But it will change the way you think about your life.
