Unsubscribe is a short fictional book about a man named Keith whom on the surface seems to be living the American dream…a wonderful family and a nice house. Keith however felt far from it. He was frustrated about how his life had become so busy with things he did not want. So busy in fact he could not even be grateful for what he had. But all this is about to change late one Saturday when he decides to tackle some of the chores on the ever growing honey-do list that his wife has posted on the fridge. The one thing on the list that has infuriated him the most is what ultimately leads him to his freedom. Before long he finds himself moving up the corporate ladder and rebuilding his relationship with his wife and kids. Ultimately he is even credited with transforming the company he works for.
Sometimes the simple things we put off until a later time, but those things should be the things that we do first. To get them off our to do list. As this story by Ross Newkirk shows his readers the secret that was discovered by Keith and Beth to unsubscribe to what they did not want and to subscribe to what they did want. One of my favorite lines from the book. “Everyone has the same amount of time each day. It’s what we choose to do with it that’s important.” After reading this book I know that I need to make the changes to improve what I want and unsubscribe to those things that need to be let go of. What are some of the things that each of us need to unsubscribe to in our daily lives? Things that are in our way and make us unhappy. Ross has done an excellent job of sharing this simple, but effective way of improving our environment. Choose to make your life fun again. Get a copy of Unsubscribe and re-read and share it with your family and friends. I have rated this one a solid 5 stars. I would love to read more works by Ross Newkirk.
