DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
This book is an unusual and fascinating journey into the heart of creating meaning and purpose in life. Leveraging scientific studies across multiple disciplines from psychology to neuroscience to quantum physics, Christopher Anconalays out paradigm-shifting ideas that transform ordinarily overlooked concepts into the extraordinary to motivate, persuade, and inspire the creation of purpose in your life so you can design and build a life you love. Going beyond philosophy, The Alignment Quotient outlines a clear, practical and pragmatic path to create and execute on a meaningful mission in life. The journey takes everyday concepts like, integrity, declaration, being, mantra, time, free-will, and purpose and weaves them into a single tapestry to empower the reader towards a future of their own creation. A must-read for any person missing meaning and purpose in their life, whether graduation from college and facing the great blue yonder, suffering a mid-life crisis, or struggling with life after retirement.
The Alignment Quotient takes the reader on a detailed journey of the science and logic behind our innate need for purpose in life, with the added value of tangible applications --Dr. Dan Radecki, Executive Director of R&D, Allergan; TEDx Speaker, Author, Co-founder Academy of brain-based Leadership
