Faith, as with everything else, should not be denied without appropriate experimentation. Science exists and progresses because scientists' faith in the possibility of a solution to the mind-boggling conundrums they face and their faith in their ability to come upon these solutions. For those willing to experiment, they would find faith to be a chief instrument of science. Regardless, if nothing else, the book is a good fun read: A Life Changed An email came with recommendation for this book on a dark day.
It was a gift from God. I had a Bob in my life when I was just starting out as a pastor. Adrian was so wise, so supportive like Bob. I could hear Adrian speaking to me throughout Bob's counsel to Roger. Deep, profound, passionate, and most of all compassionate. I am newly inspired in my calling as a pastoral care pastor. But now I realize Adrian lives on in me.
It's time to pass it on in his honor for the glory of God. May 06, Stephanie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: The 6 directives are valuable guides to live by. The fictional yet realistic story helped me see how they relate to my life and how following them can improve my life. I found it interesting that the final directive, "pass it on" and "leave a legacy" were followed by a friend of mine who recommended the book to me.
Thank you George for recommending this book.

A fast read of a short story or parable. I enjoyed the book, and I thought the ideas expressed were valuable. This is not the kind of book that will change the face of literature, but it does have the potential to change the perspective of an individual. It contains a wonderful reminder that each of us is NOT the victim of our circumstances - but each is empowered to make daily even hourly choices that can turn anything around.
Feb 07, Jennifer rated it liked it. This book is a quick read about the beauty of doing the right thing and how it can help you get ahead. It is a bit sappy and cheesy but the idea is nice. It is more religious than what I believe but I think the concepts are sound and are things that people should try to emulate in their life. It talks about the balance between work and life and how to make sure you get what you actually need out of it all. My supervisor gave me this book to read when we were going through a transition in how we were documenting services, a very stressful thing to do when you want to maintain quality of work within a designated time.
I found it a very quick read and in spirational with simple yet effective thoughts to keep in mind to help balance work without sacrificing home life. This book does reflect the Christian beliefs by using examples. Mar 31, Reid rated it liked it Shelves: This book interested me because I own a janitor company and have worked through some of the same issues particularly in balancing family and work. Of the 'six directives' the one that struck me most was 5 which says "Don't spend, invest". When one is focused on God's agenda, he is investing.
Good points, fast read, OK story, not particularly challenging. Sep 05, Jim rated it liked it. Read this on a trip with mom and dad on our grand trip to the "Copper Canyon's" of Mexico. Their big grand canyon when we took the train trip from El Paso into central Mexico. A very good read that reminds you where you are in the pecking order of life is only important if you know it is not important.
I read The Janitor by chance now calling it lucky when my friend had two books in his hand and I snatched this one from him playfully and read it. It is an amazing book where in the author drives into our minds some important things to follow illustrating with various experiences of the CEO. Recharge vs Discharge Directive 2: View Family as a Blessing, not a responsibility. Pass It Around Directive 5: Leave a Legacy; don't just take from the past.

It should be required reading for every husband and father. I made the first half the subject of one men's retreat for my church and we will cover the second half later in the year. A Must Read Excellent principles that can be applied to all walks of life. The directives in this book are simple yet often forgotten. Aug 31, Glenda Dizon rated it it was amazing. A great book and a great way to convey message as to how can a person manage the personal and professional life.
May 25, Avi rated it it was ok. Not bad, but nothing that I haven't heard before: If it was a true story as opposed to a parable I would have been much more engaged It is a quick read, though. Jan 12, Jen rated it it was amazing. Another perspective to look at. Jan 03, Allison rated it it was amazing. I read it one sitting! Weekend read about priorities. It's I keeper that you will want to re-read every couple of years to re-fuel.
