As a mom, wife, and social media entrepreneur, Mallika Chopra frequently wondered how she could possibly do one more thing. Like so many, she was taking lousy care of herself and having a difficult time finding richer meaning and purpose in each day, even though that was her business's mission. Living with Intent is a practical yet deeply personal look at her year-long journey to discover some workable answers. Along the way, she sat down with Andrew Weil, Eckhart Tolle, Gretchen Rubin, Marianne Williamson, Daniel Siegel, and others, who shared their valuable input and insight.
I requested this book from netgalley to read on a whim, and I was glad I did! I don’t normally read books like this or really, self help books at all, but I’ve been struggling lately with being more organized, better planning, where do I want to be in a year or ten years and how do I get there? This book is a roadmap, and is constantly asking you questions that make you think about those very same issues. I’ve written down many of the questions Chopra asks so I can think about them more in more detail.
I like the fact that Chopra repeatedly admits how her own life can be a mess, that she’s not perfect, that she too is striving to make sense of her life, and gives you the sense that if she can create order from chaos, so can you.
