The invaluable information in this book will help you balance family, work and finances, and give you the inspiration to help you make the changes necessary to have internal peace and improved relationships."--Marie Osmond

"Profound knowledge is literally what this book is.

From the Back Cover:

As home life and work life become increasingly integrated in contemporary life, success--or failure--in either has an undeniable effect on the other. And while the profound events that began the 21st century have intensified the desire to focus on what matters most to us, there is still often a substantial gap between what we say matters most and the way we actually spend our time and money. Our credit card and checking account statements may clearly reflect this. But it is possible to keep both areas moving forward in positive ways.

In this groundbreaking book, A. Roger Merrill and Rebecca Merrill demonstrate how to navigate the critical relationships between time and money, work and family, to create a harmonious, success-enhancing dynamic between each. Life Matters shows us how our actions can translate our most deeply held personal values and goals into daily real-life experience. From confronting life's tough questions--to offering practical ways to implement your answers--the authors guide you through the crucial steps toward effective living, including:

  • A helpful self-assessment quiz to evaluate how you feel about the vital elements of work, family, time, money--and wisdom--in your life
  • Exploring the gap between what you deeply value and the reality of daily life
  • Aligning resources with goals and values
  • Using technology--one of life's greatest balancing assets--as a tool for creating more time
  • Utilizing the concept of dynamic investing, which includes intangibles such as energy, relationships, and integrity
  • Realizing that succeeding at work and family do not have to be mutually exclusive goals

In addition, the Merrills reveal the three powerful "Gotta Do's" that are essential to developing the capacity for a balanced life. Drawn from their decades of professional and personal experience, these three keys serve as the framework for positive change. As you apply their principles and insights to your unique situation, a newfound sense of balance will radiate from your deepest inner core to your major decisions--to the smallest details of your everyday life.
