Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart – Dr. Livingston, I presume?!

April 2, 2022

This little book is really, REALLY good and has one of my favorite mind-bending, life-changing quotes EVER!

The Self-Help Whisperer®

Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart by the late Gordon Livingston, M.D. is a tiny book to be filled with so much punch. But punch, it does! In my case, right in the nose!

Take this quote for example:

“If the map doesn’t agree with the ground the map is wrong”―Gordon Livingston

It’s the chapter title for the very first chapter and I could have stopped there and called it a day. For someone like me – a rule follower and right and wrong appreciator – it turns everything I believe on its head.

I had to read that thing three times! Seriously!

My immediate thought: But someone made the map and it must have been that way or they’d never have published it!

Yeah… about that…

So what?

So what, indeed!

Here are the chapter headings = “things you need to know” followed by my thoughts on each.
