It's not every day that we wake up and decide to put life on hold and start living. This is what Jonathan did after turning forty. Having realized that probably he had already lived half his life he decided to embark on a sabbatical to enjoy time off, reflect about his life and make sure he was living life on his terms and not on someone else's. Coming from a small Mediterranean island, culture and circumstance often dictate our actions, behaviors, and next steps. Jonathan broke with this norm and is calling on us to re-evaluate what really makes us tick. #Forty is a journey which questions the way we have done things and assists us in answering the `what next?'. It is our journey - one of self-discovery. A thought provoking, easy to use hand book of a few of the life lessons Jonathan has picked up along the years and others which he is still working on. Pick it up, put it down. Read a chapter or two and reflect. Use it whichever way you wish - there is a lesson for each and every one of us. Most of all - enjoy the journey. Table of Contents: 1.
