Author, entrepreneur and coach Jeff Caliguire has penned a helpful and very readable book in "The Habits of Hope." Rather than presenting a laundry list of strategies for giving life more meaning and purpose, he couches his insights inside of a wonderful parable.
Gus is a man in the midst of a life crisis. His job is less than satisfying, his marriage is stale, and he seems to be spinning his wheels in life - no joy and no purpose. Out of the blue he receives a letter from someone he has not seen or heard from in many years - someone from a summer camp in the Adirondacks in New York.that he had attended as a young man. He waits until there is an opportunity to combine a business trip with a road trip to New York and drives many hours to a place called Hope.
