about

A charming, life-changing fable that will help you rethink your whole approach to time, priorities, and possibilities.

Riley Jenkins is in trouble. An ambitious, hardworking consultant in her late twenties, she''s used to a lifetime of nearly perfect evaluations - until she gets a terrible performance review from her boss. How is that possible when Riley does everything her clients want - including answering emails 24/7 - faster than they expect it?

That''s precisely the problem: she''s spread too thin. Despite her insane hours and attention to detail, Riley can''t produce the thoughtful work her clients expect. Now she''s been given thirty days to close a major deal, or she''s out. Meanwhile, her personal life is also on the edge of disaster, with her boyfriend and close friends losing patience with her chronic unavailability.

The last thing Riley wants, at a stressful time like this, is to attend a women''s leadership retreat with some of her colleagues. But she can''t get out of her commitment: a weekend in New Jersey at some silly-sounding place called Juliet''s School of Possibilities.

Yet before long, Riley is surprised to find herself intrigued by Juliet, the lifestyle maven who hosts the conference. How does a single mother of two run a successful business while acting as if she has all the time in the world? The answer may lie in one of Juliet''s Zen-like comments: "Expectations are infinite. Time is finite. You are always choosing. Choose well."

By the end of this story, you''ll join Riley in rethinking the balance between your present and your future, between the things you have to do and the things you want to do. Like Riley, you can free yourself from feeling overwhelmed and pursue your highest possibilities.
