2. Daily Quiet Time
4. Love and Forgiveness
For years, John Chappalear's personal mantra was "Everything! All the Time! Right Now!" A success by every external standard, he built a multimillion-dollar business, owned luxury homes and cars, and enjoyed all the benefits that lots of cash can buy. But his all-consuming quest for more ultimately led to a divorce, estrangement from his children, and a crisis of faith in himself and the value of his life. Then, in a bitter twist of fate -- or what he has come to call his own Gift of Desperation -- Chappalear lost the business that he had worked so relentlessly to build.
Today, as a self-described Recovering Big Shot, Chappalear has committed himself to the pursuit of success with significance. In changing the priorities of his own life, he developed and codified the Daily Six - six principles that provide a bridge between career success and personal well-being, and that have become the cornerstone of his corporate and personal consulting work.
According to the Daily Six, changing the focus of one's life begins with willingness, germinates in quiet time, and flourishes through service to others. The journey to a well-balanced life is enlightened by love and forgiveness, but can be fulfilled only through action. When observed daily, these principles result in both career achievement and personal contentment.
