About the Book

Ask yourself; is there a better way to live? TRIORITIES challenges you to make the effort to mentally step out of the game for a moment, and to consider your life; where it has brought you, your priorities, and where it will probably take you if you stay the course. TRIORITIES will help you to consider if there might be a better way to live.

TRIORITIES is about a life of focus, a life of balance, and a life that you endeavor to live well and enjoy along the way. Are you running from one task to the next but not enjoying any of it? Are you climbing ladders only to find the view from the top less than appealing? Then I challenge you to take a break from the treadmill of life to look at your life, your choices, your track record, and ultimately your future. Ask yourself; am I who I want to be? Am I all that God intended for me to be? Have I tried to be too many things, and failed to master any of them? If that simple evaluation brings you to a point of realization that maybe there might be a better way to do things then just maybe this is a plan for you to consider.

TRIORITIES involves simple logic that challenges you to take a three step process to evaluate life, develop a plan to become what you want to become, and then, implement that plan in your life. Consider the value of simplicity in setting priorities in a complex world. Consider simplicity from a standpoint of being focused on three areas of life that we truly need to properly invest ourselves in, and mange accordingly. The three priorities of the TRIORITIES lifestyle are God, Family and Work.

About the Author

I have found that we make life a little too complicated. We create treadmills to walk on, and then as we walk and run on and on and on, somewhere along the way, we forget why we even started walking. My pourpose in writing this book was to share a better way of life with my readers. My goal is for people to consider living a life that focuses on three basic areas of existence that bring about a meaningful and significant life, and to do so in a balanced fashion that does not get too overloaded in any one area, so as to starve the others, but strives for and maintains a balance. Let's face it, even too much of a good thing is still too much. My three priorities in life are God, Family and my Work; and most everything that I do can fit into one or more of those categories in one way or another. It is these areas that I choose to strive to be productive in, and that I try to spread myself evenly into. In writing about how I feel a balanced life can be a meaningful and significant life, I do not write from a theoretical point of view, but from an experienced point of view. I write from the experiences of my life. I have been happily married for nearly 29 years, I have two wonderful children, 25 and 27 (that come complete with a great accompaniment of son and daughter in laws and three wonderful grand children), I have been blessed with a great relationship with God and feel His presence daily in my life and have since I accepted Him as Lord and Savior of my life nearly 25 years ago, I have a great job and am surrounded by people that have become a significant part of my life. I have even embraced some very significant hobbies with purpose in my life, and quite frankly, I just enjoy the life that I have been blessed with and in my own way, I live it to the fullest and wish the same joy for everyone. I feel in many ways, I am just the guy next door. I live in a small suburb of a averaged sized city in Southern Indiana. And though our sleepy little community offers up little drama to have to deal with, I have travelled quite a bit in this country and know well enough the difference between simple and simply frightening. I have chosen to build a special life, and I have worked hard to keep it that way. And, as much as I love the blessings that I have received in life, I also love to share the path with anyone who would listen with a hope that they would see fit to walk down the same path and find joy in doing so. I guess I want everyone to be as happy as I am. What it all boils down to for me is trying to find the best way to face all things in life, and one of those things is where we will spend our eternity. They say you can't take it with you when you go, but "they" do not understand that you can take something with you in the long run, and that is the people whose lives you touch along the way who in turn choose to live a life with God here on this earth. And in the end, that is all that will truly matter.
