Driving Lessons For Life – Thoughts on Navigating Your Road to Personal Growth
Driving Lessons for Life is a collection of short and inspiring stories about change, self-improvement, leadership, and becoming a better person. It is about strengthening individuals, marriages, families, the workplace, and all of our relationships. Author Jim R. Jacobs takes the common experiences of car drivers and applies them to our daily lives, asking readers to rev up their hearts and minds to achieve a smoother ride, whether you’re already sailing along with your cruise control on or maneuvering life’s potholes.
Filled with car metaphors, hot rod memories, deep insights, and rear-view mirror humor, this book will teach you what your driving instructor never did, from what not to do in the car wash to the history behind giving someone the bird. Best of all, the car metaphors will make you recall the lessons in these pages every time you get in a vehicle and drive down the road. Because cars are an integral part of our daily life, those frequent reminders will result in lasting change. You’ll drive more safely, appreciate others more, experience less road rage, and take more time to sing in the car. The joy ride awaits you on the first page.
