Answer life’s questions

Answer life’s questions

Chances are at some stage this week you’ve planned what you will see, what bills you need to pay, how you will squeeze the 400 tasks you need to do in a day into the finite window of your waking hours. But when was the last time you paused to consider what the point of it all was?

With the pressures of daily life it is easy to put our life in autopilot and lose sight of the bigger picture.

In The Power of the Second Question, psychologist Chris Skellett reveals how you can stop and pause in your busy life to reflect and capture the ‘simple truths’ about your world.

Each chapter gives you ideas, examples and reviews the importance of personal insight and to celebrate those ‘aha’ moments in our life. Chris Skellett has expert communication skills and a practical knowledge in real practice. This book sets out simply how readers can make their lives simpler and happier.

Written in a simple and easy to read style this book is an invaluable resource for anyone questioning their current path in life and wanting to make changes.

In his new book Chris Skellett encourages readers to write down specific memories and insights to help reflect on life and discover simple truths.

The Power of the Second Question is about finding ways to see a bigger picture and encourage you to embrace a broader perspective in every day life. It is a great book for anyone who wants to separate themselves from a life that seems to be on autopilot.
