"The Art of Fully Living", what made me really read this Book was this phrase on the cover "1 man, 10 years, 100 life goals". The instant thought after reading that cover phrase was "What journey did this man go through to reach 100 life goals? " And after reading this book I must say I am rejuvenated and astonished. It was a great inspiring read.
The Art of Fully Living takes you along the exhilarating ride of Tal’s journey while illuminating your own possible life-goal trajectory: as Tal relates how he socialized nonstop in vibrant Melbourne to master English and trained intensively to complete Ironman New Zealand and practice ancient Thai martial arts, you’ll learn how to apply immersion to achieve your own life goals; as Tal describes how he eliminated his crushing student debt in one year and attained financial and location independence, you’ll learn how to simplify your life, recognize your own present wealth, and turn your passions into a living; and as Tal animates his experiences learning to surf and salsa, to drum in a troupe and compose electronic music, and to write this very book, you’ll learn how to let your intuition be your guide, reveal your authentic core, and achieve flow—among the myriad other adventures and take-aways that fill this book.
The story starts with Tal living an ideal corporate life, high paying job with conventional success. Soon Tal realized that he was unhappy with how he was living his life and he became true to himself. He decided that he would live his dreams, put up with his goals. Thus created a beautiful, meaningful and inspirational journey.
