Current Read: Now What?: 90 Days to a New Life Direction

Now What?: 90 Days to a New Life Direction Just started reading Now What?: 90 Days to a New Life Direction by Laura Berman Fortgang. I received a review copy from FSB Associates, and decided that this would be a great way to start the Fall season. While I don't usually read non-fiction, this book sounded interesting and worthwhile. I mean, who wouldn't want help in plotting a new life direction?

The book is full of exercises to help determine your new life direction, and I just finished the first one! Have a really good feeling about this book, and think it will help narrow down my choices and help me decide the next path to explore. Laura does recommend reading the chapters in order and completing all of the exercises, so I'm not sure how long it will take me to finish the book. After all, it does say 90 days...*L*
In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at some of Laura's tips:

10 Tips to Creating a New Life Direction
