Significance Starts Now is a practical, real-world continual flow of ideas that will challenge your thinking on 'how we live our lives'. It will help you and those you touch in your world(s) to understand and leverage your significance. More importantly it is how to improve, change, and enhance the lives of others - workplace, friendships, children, the troubled, those starting over and even us 'rmal' folks! This book is t about RELIGION, PREACHING AT YOU, DENOMINATION, ATTACKING YOU/YOUR BELIEFS... It is about living right by anyone's standard. In this book, you are presented with the 8 Principles of Significance that explore life and our different meanings of significance. In addition, you are introduced to some of Doug's friends who share their understanding and vision of what the eight principles mean to them and those in their circles. Doug's life and decades serving as a leader of leaders who has been in the trenches with people demonstrate his ability to help those in his care. His experiences as a leader serve as backdrops as he shows us how we might grow significance in ourselves and others. His views are real vs. philosophizing - recognizing the imperfections and flaws we all possess as we take turns being knuckleheads in life. These combined experiences and learnings, along with the author's deep faith and wisdom combine to give you a remarkable gift of personal development and growth ...a gift you will want to pass on to other significant people in your life. Enjoy the ride!
