After losing his job, Lee Kravitz, a workaholic in his
midfifties, took stock of his life and realized just how
disconnected he had become from the people who mattered most
to him. He committed an entire year to reconnecting with
them and making amends.nnKravitz takes readers on ten
transformational journeys, among them repaying a
thirty-year-old debt, making a long-overdue condolence call,
finding an abandoned relative, and fulfilling a forgotten
promise. Along the way, we meet a cast of wonderful
characters and travel the globeâ€”to a refugee camp in Kenya,
a monastery in California, the desert of southern Iran, a
Little League game in upstate New York, and a bar in
Kravitz's native Cleveland. In each instance, the act of
reaching out opens new paths for both personal and spiritual
growth.nAll of us have unfinished businessâ€”the things we
should have done but just let slip. Kravitz's story reveals
that the things we've avoided are exactly those that have
the power to transform, enrich, enlarge, and even complete
us. The lesson of the book is one applicable to us all: Be
mindful of what is most important, and act on it. The
rewards will be immediate and lasting.
