Our lives are full of defining moments, but do we recognise them? We often fail to appreciate the significance of these moments. At work the pressure can be relentless and we can fail to enjoy these moments. The author shows how to recognise and appreciate these moments, which in turn helps us to better cope during more difficult times.
