Praise for The Double Win
My friend Rodney Gage had me at “Work and at Home” in the subtitle of his latest book The Double Win. Relationally healthy people don’t live compartmentalized lives. We all live by patterns. You can’t be one way at home and another at work. There are names, even memes, for those who do! No doubt, living a congruous life is healthy, winning, and helpful to you and those around you. Go for The Double Win.
Sam Chand, Leadership Consultant and author of Change Has Changed (www.samchand.com)
The Double Win is a timely and thought-provoking book to help you avoid the almost inevitable collision between your “calling” to your career and your family. I lived it. Rodney Gage gives busy individuals and families the godly, practical wisdom, and logical steps to say no to the many good options so they can say yes to the best.
