    1 thought on “Perseverance”

    1. A friend recommended this book to me and I was happy to find a copy to read. I thoroughly enjoyed the short selections that offered some insightful and thought provoking ideas. Being able to read short selections and ruminate on them was the perfect way to read this book. While some of the thoughts were not new to me many were challenging and they got me to thinking about how I process things myself. Definitely a book that I will be picking up time and time again to focus on some of the quotes t [...]

    2. This was an ok book. It caused me to think a bit, but there was too much "zen" philosophy in it for my taste. Don't strive. Don't try. Just be. Well I get that we might "try too hard" in Western culture sometimes, but I'm not sure I buy the whole relax and it'll be all right philosophy as an answer to everything. Maybe I'm over-playing this emphasis in the book, but by about halfway through the book, this seemed to be the dominant message and I couldn't get away from it.

    3. I was loaned the book. It is almost written in a tweet (quote)/blog (essay relating to quote) format. I really enjoyed the perspectives of the author and the drawings were an added bonus. I need to get my own copy so I can keep it to review from time to time.

    4. Perseverance is a very thoughtful book, not in the sense of it being considerate, but in regards to being full of stories, quotes, and stories that really make you think. It's an exceptionally fast read, as it's comprised of short quotes and single page narrative.Margaret (Meg) Wheatley is known for her insight into the human spirit. Her ability to see pass the surface facade and be able to delve into the deeper meanings and structures that we all tend to hide from others. Many of the 'chapters' [...]

    5. I borrowed this book from the library and renewed it twice! It's a small book, but it holds a lot of sage advice and wise observations taken from many aspects of spirituality and the world that contains us.Margaret Wheatley does not preach, in fact, she doesn't even seem to set out to teach; she simply shares what she has learned. This is a book to buy, to read again, to cherish and to share.

    6. While fully secular, this book serves as a devotional for those who are trying to make a difference in their lives. I read just two pages a day and plan to reread it soon at the same pace. Many amazing thoughts and quotes about how to stay motivated for good work when so little progress is being made.

    7. Wheatley shares spirited reflections on feelings and challenges in life, like a meditation manual. Fine for individual reflection, these would also spark interesting dialogue in small groups, particularly coupled with members sharing their own stories, prayers, and meditations around the challenges named.

    8. uggghI really thought that once I started taking the main classes associated with my major, I'd be doing some interesting reading about, you know, helping other people. Except so far it's all stuff like THIS.

    9. Remarkable comprehensive little book! A guide to life and by no means the cover title does justice to the completeness of the wisdom inside!

    10. It was okay. Lots of helpful insight onto moving ahead in life without bowing to distractions created in the mind. Read for a course I'm taking. Probably wouldn't have read otherwise.

    11. This is a really good pocket book to have with you at all times. Solid nuggets or wisdom that help through the difficult moments.
