Words from the Threshold (by Lisa Smartt) A Book on the Meaning of Life

August 15, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

Hi everyone, R Shawn McBride here with you. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m in the planning game. I help successful private businesses build plans and help their employees build plans to enjoy their careers. I’m an avid reader, attorney, with a CPA background, I speak, I also write and today I’m going to give you a book review of the book Words from the Threshold written by Lisa Smartt.
A few weeks ago I was driving cross country, listening to the radio, and heard Lisa on the Coast to Coast Radio Show. And I’ve reached out to the Coast to Coast folks, hoping to be a guest there soon on their show. But Lisa was on there talking about Words from the Threshold, a very, very interesting study. She talked to a lot of people about what their experience was, what the experience of their loved ones was as they were moving through the dying process. A lot of great lessons in there and I think it’s very meaningful.
Many of you know that I do a lot of work with planning when I’m speaking to people, when I’m working one on one with my clients, and when I’m working with groups. It’s all about planning and execution, and how do we build it, and one of the things I ask people to do is have a vision – 10, 15, 20 years into the future of what you want to do. What is a more meaningful tie-in than to be thinking about the meaning of your life and where you’re going to go? So Lisa really does a great job of making it an important discussion. She really looks at the different aspects of things she found, it really gives you a lot of great stuff to think about, about what’s the meaning as we’re passing, and certainly that last communication between loved ones.
So I absolutely love the book, I suggest those of you that are looking for meaning and purpose and direction in your life, this should be required reading, you should definitely check it out. It made me really think about life, and what comes after, how it all fits together, and what the meaning is and being with loved ones. So really resonated with me. For those of you who are working for a higher purpose, and are building a business, and you’ve got employees and people you care about, and you’re doing something really for the community, this ties all into that. And what do our lives mean.
So grab a copy, reach out to me if you have any questions, would love to know your thoughts on that book. And of course, if I can help you with anything along the way I’m here for you, want people to get those lives they want and build those plans.
