ABOUT THE BOOK
A guide for anyone who wants to live conscientiously and make a positive impact
Western society makes it challenging for those of us who desire a just world--one of shared prosperity--to live a life that is consistent with our values. Handbook for an Integrated Life provides both philosophical principles and practical steps that you can use to bring your actions in line with your goal of creating a world that works for everyone.
Sharon Schneider, a philanthropy consultant to some of the world's wealthiest families, distills her expertise into pragmatic guidance for all of us--even those on a budget. She lays out seven foundational principles on which you can base your everyday decisions, helping you:
- Identify the cultural norms that lead you away from your goals
- Differentiate between giving back and simply giving
- Reconsider your buying habits
- Resist the allure of convenience
- Align more of your spending with your values
- Harness the full power of your household
- Raise socially aware kids
Schneider supplements this guidance with useful steps and real-world applications to help you employ the principles in multiple areas of your life, including in food choices, clothing choices, finances, the workplace, relationships, and more. You will come away feeling, at last, equipped and empowered to follow your internal compass.
