Publisher's Summary

"Let's start a revolution. I want us to start a revolution. We need to start a revolution. I don't mean an armed rebellion against the government or other forms of authority. I mean an intellectual and behavioral revolution that questions the status quo at every level and then makes changes based on that which we deliberately determine to be most important."
These are the words of Dr. Bill Svoboda, and he invites you to join his revolution that, literally, will change your life. By asking yourself the question, "What's most important?" you will take the first step in challenging and changing your thinking and behaviors. But how do you determine what's most important to you? Dr. Svoboda will guide you through the process to determine your values and priorities in life, by analyzing five factors: Factor 1: Gaining and maintaining physical health; Factor 2: Gaining and maintaining mental health; Factor 3: Gaining and maintaining financial security; Factor 4: Mastering and using problem-solving and critical-thinking skills; Factor 5: Acting responsibly to others, the environment, and yourself. These factors are the keys to living a well-rounded, satisfying and focused life. They will help you to:


Use your discretionary time to seek information that can improve your life and the lives of those around you
Develop the ability to use objective questions, healthy skepticism, and critical analysis of ideas and actions
Shift away from a win-lose mentality in decision-making and negotiating to a problem-solving process based on win-win solutions that emphasize positive human consequences
Develop a lifestyle that emphasizes plant-based, nutritious "real foods" along with a variety of physical exercise
Gain an increased awareness to conserve and nurture what nature has given us
Seek happiness through adding value to others, to the environment, and to yourself

Your Choices, Your Life by Bill Svoboda. His first book engages with similar topics using his signature style of clear logic and concise formatting. It makes excellent companion reading material.


Which scene was your favorite?

The Chapter on Factor 4: Problem Solving and Critical Thinking is most needed, and most useful, in today's political atmosphere. The information is helpful at all times, in nearly every situation, and so rarely addressed in modern society.


What did you learn from What's Most Important? that you would use in your daily life?

I learned to identify What's Most Important in my own life, and how to utilize the many tools and strategies for prioritizing those goals. The book helps to focus and clarify your personal effort into the things that matter most for your well being and that of society.


Any additional comments?

I am most inspired by the synergy between each of the 5 Factors, and how each relates to and supports the other. Good Physical Health creates Good Mental Health leads to Critical Thinking and Problem Solving resulting in Good Financial Health, which all culminates in better Civic and Social Health. A better world truly starts with a better you.
