I got this book from a Goodreads Giveaway.
I'm not nearing retirement. I mean, I'm 22. I just started working. I move way too quickly for retirement, even way too quickly for some of my coworkers, who have slowed down after 4 or more years with the company. I felt like this book went too slowly for my world.
But I liked the inspirations for journaling. And I think this is going to be a good book to return to when I am ready to slow down and enjoy life more than I enjoy work.
This book definitely strikes me as a great gift. And while it's not a book for me right now, it promises to be useful to me in the future.
