Jack Covert Selects: Chasing Daylight Part 1

By: Jack @ 4:59 PM – Filed under: Personal Development & Human Behavior

I am reading a profoundly moving book. I will write at least a Jack Covert Selects later but I hope to excerpt it and do other stuff to get the word out. The book is called Chasing Daylight, How My Forthcoming Death Transformed My Life by Eugene O'Kelly. I quote from the backcover "On May 24, 2005, Eugene O'Kelly stepped into his doctor's office with a full calendar and a lifetime of plans on his mind. Six days later he would resign as CEO of KPMG. His lifetime of plans dwindled to 100 days. leaving him just enough time to say goodbye. Chasing Daylight is O'Kelly's honest, touching and ultimately inspirational memoir completed in the three-and-a-half months between his diagnosis with brain cancer and his death in September 2005." Folks, I gotta tell you, this is a book that needs to be read by all of us who think that we have a chance to slow down later. I can't remember being moved by a book like I am being moved by this book. More later...
