"The Life Brief will transform the lives of everyone who reads it." —Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
Start living an astonishing life with this “practical and accessible, moving and deeply meaningful” (Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone) guided program for identifying your core values and aligning every area of your life with them so you can feel fulfilled every day. “This book is a wonderful invitation. Take it” (Dave Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Designing Your Life).
We all have moments when we doubt the path we’re on. The Life Brief is an essential tool for aligning your life with your dreams—personally, professionally, culturally, and spiritually. Based on the business world’s most-used organizational tool, The Life Brief has three phases: Get Messy, Get Clear, and Get Active. The first phase is a set of open-ended writing prompts that cut through limiting beliefs and false assumptions about what’s possible. Get Clear offers prompts for finding clarity around what you truly, deeply want. Finally, Get Active catapults you into the steps to making those desires a reality. Tried and tested by Bonnie herself as well as thousands of attendees of workshops and lectures, The Life Brief method is the most powerful tool for solving life’s biggest messes and creating a life of meaning.
"We all have stories we tell ourselves about our lives, but what Bonnie Wan so rightly points out is that it is often the questions we avoid that hold the most value. In The Life Brief, she combines the candid self-reflection of the therapy room with the warmth and humor of a hard-won personal journey, then harnesses the executive power of a top industry professional to create a wholly unique guide to living that is both practical and accessible, moving and deeply meaningful. It will transform the lives of everyone who reads it." —Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
"Bonnie is an astonishing life force—and The Life Brief is an artful tool that can help you discover you are one too. Bonnie is a brilliant companion on the road to more aliveness. This book is a wonderful invitation. Take it." —Dave Evans #1 New York Times bestselling author of Designing Your Life
"The Life Brief is more than a book. It’s an invitation to play, to engage with key questions about our values and beliefs, and to create a unique life play book. I had so much fun reading and engaging with this book!" –Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author
"The science behind how we generate our reality is clear, and now with The Life Brief we have the ultimate tool to set us on our true path towards success and joy. As much a book as it is a rite of passage for all of us seeking to get down to the essence of who we are, what we desire, and how to get it." —Deepak Chopra, New York Times bestselling author of Metahuman
"Bonnie Wan shows parents if you want to be there for your children, you need to take care of yourself. A great resource for parents in these difficult times and beyond, it is an inspiring and important way of thinking. I highly recommend The Life Brief as a way to keep your life and the lives of your kids on track." —Esther Wojcicki, Author of How to Raise Successful Children
"The Life Brief is a smart and helpful tool for all of us trying to explore and define and execute our purpose." —Kiki Koroshetz, Wellness director of GOOP
"The Life Brief stands up there with The Artist's Way in that it's not self-help—it is a self-unlocking book. Bonnie establishes a process that is interactive, dynamic, and—by sharing her own vulnerable journey—feels like you are not going through it alone. Her book is required reading for anyone who wants to live a life fueled by courage, creativity and radical co-creation with the universe." —Valentine Giraud, Former Board Director, Center for Noetic Sciences
"In a world awash with competing priorities, unlimited choice and daily time pressures, The Life Brief is the tool that we all desperately need to navigate today’s over stimulated world. Thankfully, Bonnie shares her creative strategies to help you bring focus and order to your life with a clear set of priorities on what matters most. Creating your own Life Brief will help you articulate your inner voice and distill your desires to become more true to yourself in a world that often forces us to overlook what we want and value most to propel your life forward." —Eric Ryan, CEO and Founder of Method Home and Olly and Welly Health
