An inspiring introduction to the most& ; important lesson for today& 019;s busy world:& ; the & 01C;take away& 01D; is to & 01C;take away.& 01D;& ; Every day we are faced with choices that entail saying& ; no& 014;and frankly we& 019;re not very good at it. Whether it& 019;s& ; the desire to please, get ahead, accumulate or impress,& ; our lives have become so full and so busy that it is hard& ; to determine what we really need and what& 019;s really important& ; to us.& ; The purpose of this book is to help you take back& ; control of the things that matter most in your life. It& ; taps timeless Jewish wisdom that teaches how to & 01C;hold& ; on tightly& 01D; to the things that matter most while learning& ; to & 01C;let go lightly& 01D; of the demands, worries, activities& ; and conflicts that do not ultimately matter. Drawing& ; insights from ancient and modern sources, it helps you& ; identify your core values as well as the opportunities& ; that do not reflect those values, and that you can learn& ; to pass up. It also shows you how to establish a disciplined& ; practice to help you adhere to your choices.& ; Whether it& 019;s letting go of resentment, learning to& ; say & 01C;no& 01D; at work or to your loved ones, downsizing& ; your diet or asking less of the earth, this book will help& ; you distinguish between the trivial and the profound. It& ; will show you how saying & 01C;no& 01D; can bring many more& ; opportunities for & 01C;yes.& 01D;
