Busyness does not equal productivity. Sure, we can fill each of our waking minutes with non-stop work, but what we really achieving other than stress and its consequences? In his book, Live Like You Mean It, T.J. Addington challenges his readers to examine our lives and prioritize what truly matters. In order for us to have meaningful lives, we must live out what God has planned for us. To guide us on this journey, Addington instructs his readers to reflect on the following ten questions:

1. Why am I here?

2. What is my sweet spot?

3. What will I live behind?

4. What really matters?

5. What is my plan?

6. How do I best recharge?

7. How can my life have a ripple effect?

8. How do I relate to God?

9. Will I say yes to God?

10. What shall I do next?

Each of the questions is dealt with in its own chapter, in which Addington provides his personal answer. He gives practical advice that leads to a fulfilling life. It is nearly impossible to finish this book and not be affected by its message in some way. Addington touches on so many topics, including marriage, employment, education, the loss of a loved one and time-management, that each reader is bound to identify with some aspect of the book.
