In this book DeMoss give insights from scripture, history, and his own experiences that will give you certain ways to not only be more successful with your work, but help you keep focus in your life and set aside time for good thinking. In fact, one of the big points DeMoss stresses toward the beginning of the book is the importance of good thinking. In today’s world he believes that corporations do not allow their employees to have “thinking time” and this not only hurts the employees, but it hurts the business itself. Good thinking is not the only topic of this book though, as he also covers things like getting out of your comfort zone, writing letters (and actually mailing them), God’s ownership of everything, Integrity, Wisdom of age, and the importance of listening, just to name a few.
Having never heard of this book, I actually expected it to be filled with tips or proverbs like many other “Wisdom” books, but instead the many of the things DeMoss talks about really seemed to touch home with me. In particular, his chapters on technology and letter writing seemed to make me think a little about the things in my life. I’m a huge fan of technology, but it does seem to take away from things in life. Letter writing ties in with this since email has basically killed the written letter. However, don’t letters you recieve in the mail have more meaning than an email? Even just a quick handwritten note sent to a friend could make their day.
So in all, this book really is full of wisdom that I think would be helpful to everyone who would take the time to read it. You may be hit by different chapters than I was, but there really does seem to be something in there for everyone.
