From Type A to Type Me: How to Stop “Doing” Life and Start Living It Synopsis
We all know people who seem to have it all together; they come across as confident, accomplished, and successful to the outside world, and leave their friends to wonder, “How does she do it all?” Fast-paced, deadline-driven, and outcome-focused American life and work culture has bred Type-A personality behaviors, such as ambition, multitasking, and perfectionism. Unfortunately, Americans also have extremely high rates of depression and heart disease, which are often caused by common Type-A stressors and pressures to “have it all” and “be it all.” From Type A to Type Me is a wakeup call for anyone with Type-A traits who is trapped by their negative side effects. Using new techniques with ancient wisdom, this book provides a down-to-earth, applicable roadmap for harnessing the values of the Type-A tendencies while releasing the rigid side effects that too often take over.
