Jounce!

Jounce front coverJounce is a real physics term – it’s the fourth derivative of position over time.

Though the term ‘jounce’ is seldom encountered in science class, we often go through life being jounced: jerked around in several directions at once. From a traffic ticket to bad news from your doctor to a global catastrophe, the sources for being jounced are all around us.

This book is about dealing with being jounced. What started in anger six years ago has transformed into raised awareness and intention of the journey the author has indeed been on all his life.

“Jounce is an inspiring read about the power of our thoughts and decisions and how we can take control about our lives. With real life stories and metaphors Jim outlines the importance of reflections and actions. Throughout the book he empowers the reader to build an effective resilience toolkit.” (5 stars) – from Amazon.ca

Dealing with a growing concern for where our collective lives are headed (with only some factors within our control) while working to craft a fulfilled life and a lasting legacy can be daunting work. For most of us, it remains far easier to comfortably continue meandering through our daily existence, making ends meet, absorbed in social media, and focused on the present, blissfully unaware of the storm clouds on all of our horizons.

Changed My Life – “This book will have a dramatic impact on your life. It changed the way I look at things. Thank you, Jim” (5 stars) – from Amazon.com

Jounce is an intensely personal exploration of the challenges we face and some of the characteristics of human nature that drive how we deal with our world, describing one person’s strategy for building a resilient life. While a journey such as this is critical to help you manage crises, you’ll find that it’s not all hard work, and you’ll gain a more fulfilled life in the process.
