Small steps toward the elusive work–life balance:Live a life that fuels your work, and work in a way that fuels your life. Life Kerning shows you how, one miniscule step at a time.

"I just love this book. And you will, too, if you strive to be a human being and not a human doing. It′s about simple truths: Serve others. Say thank you. Create more good. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Do what you love. This isn′t rocket science it′s just a great guide for assessing what′s important in your life. Read Life Kerning, take it to heart, and watch everything around you get a little bit better."
Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Lead with LUV

"Life Kerning is a very good read. The style is such that you feel like Justin is alongside you as you both discover how to navigate work and life. As I was reading it, I found myself drawn further and further into the concepts just by the authenticity with which they were delivered, but honestly, the concepts themselves are meaty but accessible. I′m going to give this away to a lot of my friends and clients."
