Book Review: Juliet’s School of Possibilities

Juliet’s School of Possibilities by Laura Vanderkam is one of the best books I’ve read in a while.  A friend recommended it after he read it and I’m so glad he did!  Just a few chapters in, I stopped for a quick break to delete my work email off my phone.  I’m four days into this new email habit…and I’m super grateful for the space it’s created.  That might not be a big deal to you, but that was one thing I decided to “choose well.”

I highlighted several things while reading and posted those notes below…

  • I cannot do everything, so I do what I find most meaningful and enjoyable to myself and the people I care about.” Location 377
  • “Of all the things you’ve done in your life, what are you most proud of?” Location 519
  • “Our actions determine our courses. How we live our hours is how we live our lives.” Location 532
  • Rushing just made me feel rushed. Telling myself I had no time made me feel like I had no time. When I told myself I had time for what mattered, something did change. Location 669
  • Expectations are infinite. Time is finite. You are always choosing. Choose well. Location 689
