  • 1 thought on “Life Reimagined: Discovering Your New Life Possibilities”

    1. I was underwhelmed with this one. I found the methodology of reimagining your life to be similar to a lot of change management processes that requires planning – heavy on the planning. It certainly gives some nice examples of folks rethinking their lives, but when reading I didn’t see how the examples tied in with the parts of the process being talked about. I will admit I’ve read quite a few of these types of books and I am a bit jaded. I think if you haven’t read some in the same class [...]

    2. I was actually disappointed in this book. It is really fluffy stuff. Yes, it encourages you to re-imagine your life and interviews some people who did. But there are no worksheets to go through to find out what your personality style suggests you try. I guess they want you to hook up to their website and go through material there. One can certainly do that without the book. I do feel it was rather a waste of time for me.

    3. Amazing, Brilliant, Life Changing! Life Reimagined is a wonderful must read! Discover a new way to look at life and a simple way to unearth new possibilities that maybe were not possible. “What next?” can be solved with complete joy!

    4. A very important topic handled in much too light a way. Chooses to go for a motivational ("you can do it!") self-help book approach when more substance is called for. "What Color Is Your Parachute -- For Retirement" is much better.

    5. This book was largely a waste of time. It had a bit of material that was motivating. Whatever the value level of the material, it was repeated and repeated and repeated. How many times can you say the same thing over again? They may answer that question. It could easily be condensed to two pages.

    6. Life Reimagined "Discovering Your New Life Possibilities" by Richard J Leider and Alan M Webber is an interesting book that provokes one to ponder the life path that has been taken. It provides a guided approach to evaluating ones past, present and future with respect to life choices as well as providing inspiration to step outside of one’s comfort zone. Real life examples are used to further illustrate the ideas being presented. There are opportunities to obtain more insight by visiting the w [...]

    7. "Do you agree that there is a "new" phase of life between middle age and old age, with unique characteristics and possiblilities?" If you need some convincing, this book is for you. I felt very inspired by the stories and advice. The book encourages readers to continue to make choices, be curious, be courageous. It's never too late nor too early to reimagine life. This book takes some hits as being too "light" on a serious subject, and it does have a cheerleader tone. But that may be the tone ne [...]

    8. Even for those who are not quite at midlife (ages 40-60), this book had great insights. It uses scientific research and journalistic story-telling to walk you through what will help you make the most out of midlife. For example, the book discussed scientific research on the effect of strong friendships on stress, health, and resilience, inspiring me to take a little more time for my friends. It also discusses the keys to a happy marriage in midlife and the importance of pursuing a purpose and gi [...]

    9. This is a good book to read when thinking about and/or going through transitions in life. Since I was not particularly committed to the journaling part of this book, I'm sure I did not receive the full benefit that the Life Reimagined process has to offer. I CAN imagine re-reading this book to refresh ideas and encourage personal change.

    10. maybe I give it four stars. Picked up in the airport in Hawaii. It caused me to lose my complacency and renewed my energy toward trying new things and finding connections with other people. Gave it to brother Marty and hope Donna will read it so we can work on web site and discuss some of the strategies etc.

    11. This book is a good read for those in transition. The process really resonated with me in my work in career development - a process that takes us from reflection to connection all the way through to action. Richard Leider's work is always inspirational and I admire his commitment to helping others live a more fulfilling and purposeful life. I recommend all of his writings.

    12. This book had some good information. Some things were helpful and (new to me) insights and some things I didn't quite agree with. Even though it states that lack of money isn't a good excuse I still believe it is. I also was a bit disappointed in the website as I expected it to be more helpful than it was. I received the book for free through First Reads.

    13. Very well doneThe book is a "quick read" however the wheels that are set in motion require serious thought and gentleness to one's self. Reimaging can be a call to courage as well as the call to enjoyment and silliness you may have ached to bring back to your life. As it is said , you are the author of the story of you! This book invites you to add another chapter.

    14. An interesting book with some good ideas. There is also a complementary website that looks great. I'm pretty happy with my life as it stands right now, but nothing stays the same forever. It's always good to "keep moving" as my old cigar box reminded. I really bought the book for a friend who is dithering about changing his life. I'm hoping it will provide the push he needs.

    15. This book was given to me by a friend at a time when I was searching for how to begin again. It has some great stories of new beginnings and led me to search further for my next chapter. It is not a deep lesson or a difficult journey to complete like some self help books. It lays out a new paradigm and gives you some tools to take away. It's a good quick read with some inspiration.

    16. This was a typical "self-help" book targeted at the newly retired generation. I took note of a few concepts, such as "journaling" and noted the advice that "isolation is fatal".

    17. Plenty of food for thought. But follow through for me not likely as I am either too tired or too lazy.

    18. I won this from a giveaway and I absolutely loved it. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it suited me wonderfully!
