The 7 Minute Solution: Creating a Life with Meaning 7 Minutes at a Time

Allyson Lewis. Free Press, $23 (272p) ISBN 978-1-4516-2822-7
Motivational speaker and financial adviser Lewis writes: “My life changed forever when I took seven minutes to write down my purpose.” After targeting business success and professional decision-making in The 7 Minute Difference, she widens her scope with this new self-help toolbox, showing how to focus attention for seven minutes daily on what is most meaningful in one’s life: “one of the core principles... is that taking tiny steps forward every day quickly adds up to monumental change.” Her goal is help people find order in the chaos of their lives, to define their priorities and to help people organize them into a fashion where they can “clearly see where they want to go.” She details seven “vital signs” of life: conscious awareness, motivation, growing and learning, engaging, persevering, living in flow, and living with faith. Each gets a lengthy chapter analysis, illuminated with personal anecdotes or historical events, such as the survival story of British explorer Ernest Shackleton (who exemplifies perseverance). Although much of Lewis’s writing is redundant, her in-depth presentation will appeal to readers seeking ways to upgrade their personal development. (Dec.)
