Throughout your life, you've had numerous everyday conversations and other experiences in which a small observation—perhaps a single sentence someone spoke to you—resonated so strongly that you still remember it years later. The "pearls of wisdom" that arose from such small encounters helped shape your values, how you think about yourself, and how you interact with others.

Pearls from Sand: How Small Encounters Lead to Powerful Lessons presents more than three dozen of my personal pearls of wisdom, the experiences and conversations that led to them, and ways that you could apply them to help increase your own happiness and fulfillment. Although these were my experiences (and those of people I know), many of these powerful lessons can apply to anyone's life.

My goals with Pearls from Sand are to suggest how you can apply these pearls of wisdom to your own life, and also to motivate you to think about your own pearls, how you came by them, how you can use them, and how you can share them with your partner, children, friends, and colleagues. The lessons are grouped into six categories:

  • Interpersonal pearls
  • Personal pearls
  • Inspirational pearls
  • Practical pearls
  • Cautionary pearls
  • Professional pearls
