Using life’s little transitions to find balance and happiness.
Everyday we undertake dozens of different roles, tasks and experiences. Most of us habitually carry our mindset and emotional state from one of these activities to the next – and all too often this has negative, occasionally disastrous consequences.
For years we’ve been told it’s getting the ‘big’ stuff right that gives us balance and makes us happy: the holidays, the audacious goals, the pay rises. But in our hearts we know it’s really the small stuff: a great result at work, our welcome home, an absorbing conversation, a game with the kids.
This book is all about getting the small stuff right – not ‘sweating’ it, but making it much more rewarding, much more often. It’s about using the ‘Third Space’ (that moment of transition between a first activity and the second that follows it), to mentally ‘show up’ right for whatever comes next. Gaining control of the Third Space will empower you to do this any time and every time. You will consistently be your bet for your work, your family, your friends and yourself – and you will find that the key to balance and happiness was always there waiting for you in the Third Space.
