The month of November had us reading and discussing Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman as the 12 in 12 book challenge continues. If you missed our 1st review, catch up HERE. It was a divergence from the usual non-fiction business books chosen for the challenge, but can be interpreted to help you grow in life, personal as well as professional.

Dan Millman writes about reflection and learning to grow in spirit, mind, and body. This is a good read that will make you think! I (Marissa) think men can connect to the main character better, but I still enjoyed it.
Take-Aways we use NOW:
1. Live in the moment: A general theme we learned from this book is to live in the here and now. Don’t worry so much about the future or the past, but slow down and enjoy today. Even enjoying every bite of food rather than shoveling is a small change you can make.
2. Let it go: As humans we tend to over-think a lot of the time (me!). We wonder if what we told our boss was the right thing or we analyze how others might think of us. (Unrelated, but Erik loves this quote: “what other people think of you is none of your business”.) A huge take-away for us was to let things go more. Relax, don’t worry, and let things go after they happen for a more peaceful, happy life.
