BOOK DISCUSSION: The Miracle Habits, by Mitch Horowitz
“This book is about more than cultivating sanctioned notions of success or acceptance,” says author Mitch Horowitz. “It is not about being 10% happier, ‘good enough,’ or reorganizing your sock drawer. It is about fostering miracles. Not as a once-in-a-lifetime experience but as a recurring and natural part of life.”
Does that sound as good to you as it does to me? Then let’s read and discuss it together. My experience with Horowitz’s books is that he is thoughtful, pragmatic, and down-to-earth. I expect this to be a practical book for testing these “miracle habits.”
Visit Horowitz’s page for more information about him, his work, current lectures and appearances, and how to get copies of this book, and all his other excellent books.
We’ll start the discussion on Facebook Live at 12:30pm Pacific Time and talk for 15-20 minutes. Comments will be open throughout the day, and we’ll have a second chance to come back and discuss any further thoughts in a Facebook Live at 7:00pm Pacific Time. Come for one or all!
