Doing Life: A Pragmatist Manifesto

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation LLC, 2012 - Business & Economics - 262 pages

This is a book about how and why people “do life” as they do. It is as well a book
about how people could or should think about doing life for the benefit of their own
well-being and that of the people they associate with.
It is a book about how our feelings and our thinking interfere with how we could be
doing the life we dream of. It is a book about the mistakes we make in doing life, and
how we could avoid those mistakes.
It is a book about what causes us to be the way we are. It is a book about why we
often can’t do life as we wish. It is about the personal dragons that stand in our way.
And it is about how the real world outside of us can frequently frustrate even our
best intentions.
It is about ramping up for doing life, and then trying to understand why our lives so
often turn out in ways we had neither anticipated nor desired. It is about how getting
involved with others means our lives are forever altered. It is about why that could be
a good thing or a bad thing, and how to best figure that out in advance.
It is a book about frustration and regret, about pleasure and pain. It is about
participating in life’s trials and tribulations by choice.
It is the kind of book you can use to maximize your choices about doing life as you
would have it done, and about mastering the influences of what happens in the world
around you.
It is about undoing the life you have in order to be able to do life the way it should
be done.
