“Where you’re different, Dion,” the marketing consultant said, “Is that you are telling people that what they need to know is around them, not necessarily to be found by contemplating their navels. Instead of just looking inside oneself, you suggest to others to look around themselves.”
“Listen to Life: Wisdom in Life’s Stories” presents more than 90 profoundly simple lessons—some reinforced by Dion’s photography—that remind, encourage, inspire and inform. The stories serve as lessons as well as guides to where and how each of us should look and listen to life to get the most from it.
Approachable and accessible, the book can be opened at any page, just as life’s lessons can be absorbed at any time. “Life’s lessons are ‘random access,’” Dion says, “and we’re in contact with knowledge and wisdom at all times from all types of sources.”
The book is an outgrowth of Dion’s weekly newsletter of the same name.
Useful as gifts to friends, colleagues or customers, the book provides important reminders to the “listening” professions: education, healthcare, financial, sales, management and more. Dion uses many of these stories as examples in his presentations and workshops to various associations, organizations and businesses, as well as women’s shelters, youth programs and others.
On a more personal level, the book provides moments to pause and reflect on the sublime wisdom available to us all in our daily lives.
