The Long View (Paperback)

If you learn to take the long view, you will find yourself in possession of two of life’s most precious commodities: patience and generosity.

Taking the long view teaches us to be patient, and all of life is better for a patient person. Patience will pay immeasurable dividends in your career, marriage, parenting, health, and well-being, personal finances, and in your spiritual journey.

Life is relationships. The virtue of patience is the essence of successful relationships. Two patient people will always have a better relationship than two impatient people.

Patience is the fruit of taking the long view. The opposite of being patient is to be frustrated, agitated, intolerant, irritable, restless, and impatient.

Taking the long view also liberates us from selfishness and teaches us to be generous.

Great lives belong to men and women who see life as a generosity contest.

Decide right now, here, today, to live a life of staggering generosity.

Astonish the people who cross your path with generosity. There is no better way to bring Christianity to life.

Generosity is also the fruit of taking the long view. The opposite of being generous is to be greedy, mean, selfish, stingy, and fearful.

It is patience that allows us to find God in all things, and generosity that sets us free to be men and women for others.

About The Long View (Paperback)

In this small volume, the celebrated author and speaker Matthew Kelly succinctly presents his reflections on one of life’s most important lessons. In doing so, he demonstrates what he has revealed to us again and again through his work: He has taken the time to think on life’s biggest questions so that he can present his findings to us in ways that make sense in our everyday experience of life and at the same time stir our souls.

Do you take the long view? Do you take the short view? Do you even know? Are you aware when you are taking the long view or the short view? How would your life be different if you became a student of the long view?

At a time when instant gratification no longer seems fast enough, The Long View invites us to step back from the endless hustle of our busy lives and question whether we are on the right path.

Not enough... I’m thirsty for

By Marlene on Thursday, May 7, 2020

When I started to get deep in the book it’s ended.
Not enough!! I’m thirsty for more ...
Mathew really did offer to the students and all of us a good question about life. Doesn’t matter what age are you at the question remains to be asked every day with the choices we make and he nailed it in few pages.
Good job! I enjoyed. Thanks Mathew Kelly.

This little book could change the world. I want all of my children & Grandchildren to read it! Such a simple concept but one we’ve lost sight of in our “I want it right now!” world. Thank you!
