A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed a book titled, Contentment: The Secret to a Lasting Calm by Richard Swenson, MD, who also wrote, Margin, some years back.
I look for several things when I’m reviewing and one is how quotable an author is…because when a person can communicate something powerful and memorable in a few words (or sentences,) it packs a bigger punch.
In the coming weeks, I’m going to share some of this author’s power punches about learning how to live contentedly (and yes, there are some skills, choices, and disciplines involved here.)
But for now, I’d like to share one brief quote from this text (because it’s been a long work week and I want to take time to play this weekend beginning now).
Are you ready?
Guaranteed this statement will have you thinking for a while.

Before we set our hearts too much on anything, let us examine how happy are those who already possess it.
Told you so.
