Opening Sentence of the Day: 365 Thank Yous



"On December 22, 2007, I felt my life was at an irreversible personal nadir."

-- 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life by John Kralik.

The senior partner at my firm gave me this for Christmas.  Then, just the other day, he wrote me a letter thanking me for joining the firm as a partner and saying some very nice things about me.  He laid it on pretty thick, but I have to say that it sure made my day.  He told me he has been writing similar letters to people because he was inspired by this book. I'm intrigued.

I checked out the full synopsis of this book on Amazon and that first sentence and you boss's subsequent actions, all became clear.

It sounds as if it will be quite an uplifting, inspiring read.

It is now firmly on my radar to read at some point

If you haven't read this one yet, read it .. it was an inspiring sort of book that most of us can take something from. :)
