Publisher's Summary

A sustainable plan for living your life to its fullest energy potential

In our unpredictable and continually changing world, we are constantly in a state of figuring out how to sow our seeds for a happy life, which necessitates tending to the needs of our health, career, family and friends, passions, and desires. Unfortunately, time never seems to be on our side, and if anything, often it seems out of our control.

But what if it wasn't? What if you had the ability to take control of how you trade your energy for time and to increase your body's "energy budget" to live your fullest life?

Pedram Shojai, O.M.D., New York Times best-selling author of The Urban Monk, shares his time-tested system for managing your Life Garden through 100-day gongs. Originating from ancient traditions and with a framework refined throughout Shojai's 15-plus years of coaching, this 100-day system provides a foundation for:

  • Managing your expectations for your time now versus your time to come
  • Allocating the time you have in order to get more
  • Finding the balance between doing versus being
  • Tapping into your vitality's highest potential
  • Making sure your life aligns with your priorities

With detailed guidance and meaningful exercises broken down into doable tasks, you will be able to develop a personalized plan for tending to your Life Garden, understanding its mechanisms so that you can stick to it, and allowing your life's profound meaning and essential nature to flourish with abundance.

A Monk, a doctor and an economist walk into a bar…

With a deep understanding of Eastern and Western wisdom, both ancient and modern, Pedram links the current issues that lead to disconnection from ourselves and others to the knowledge and practices that are still the cure. It is all here if you choose to do the thinking and exercises taught in this book.

This straightforward and often blunt book feels like a conversation between a monk, medical doctor, master gardener and an economist. It is loaded with how to information for what Pedram knows produce the life balancing results we all generally desire. His ancient and now scientifically backed advice is based on his 30 years of learning, doing and teaching these wisdom-based practices. If your new year’s resolutions turned into next year’s resolutions you should read this book and do the work.

Very thankful

Thank you, Predram, for your no nonsense encouragement to live life intentionally. I can’t wait to finish my first gong!

Full Circle

This book covers a lot of critical areas in life many self and spiritual development books seem to miss.
Whereas many spiritual authors tell you to be “above it all” and just let go of the world, this book does no such thing.
Pedram wastes no time on filler information, or woo-woo “just believe” concepts.
It’s full of practical advice that is usable immediately and is backed with enough information that basically paralyzes your lower mind’s ability to argue against it. Focus really binds together a lot of vital information for anyone who desires to live a life full of meaning.
I highly recommend this book.
