The Rhythm of Life

Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose
by Matthew Kelly | Touchstone © 1999 · 302 pages

The-best-version-of-yourself. That's what Matthew Kelly is committed to helping us become and that's what this book is all about. In the Note, we have fun getting in tune with the Rhythms of Life as we explore the fact that everything is a choice, look at what we want to give our WHOLE life to and discover the mojo of great questions.

Whether you are sixteen or sixty, the rest of your life is ahead of you. You cannot change one moment of your past, but you can change your whole future. Now is your time.
Matthew Kelly

“This is what I do know: You are capable of incredible things—things you have not even begun to imagine or believe in. Infinite possibilities are all around you, waiting to be explored, appreciated, grasped, and celebrated. You are using only a fraction of your potential . . . and that is a beautiful and exciting truth.

Every day you make hundreds of decisions. Some of those decisions help you become the-best-version-of-yourself, and others don’t. Life is a choice. Become a great decision maker and you will master the art of living. With each decision, simply ask: What will help me to become the-best-version-of-myself? Make this a constant part of your inner dialogue and you will become a fabulous decision maker—and live a life uncommon.”

~ Matthew Kelly from The Rhythm of Life


That is what Matthew Kelly is committed to helping us become and that is what this book is all about—becoming the-best-version-of-ourselves as we align with the rhythms of life.

The result? Living every day with passion and purpose.

I heard about Matthew from Hal Elrod in his great book, The Miracle Morning (see Notes). Hal raved about Matthew and shared some extraordinary quotes so I picked up a couple of books. Very glad I did!

The book is packed with wisdom. (Get it here!) My copy is, as you’d expect, all marked up. I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
