The Long View (Hardcover)

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 (Hardcover)

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.

Great Insight!

By Lynette on Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Matthew Kelly's insight brings an awakening. The Long View is an excellent source speaking to those moving ahead in life, and those of us seasoned adults. He reminds us of the gifts we have from the Holy Spirit, and to use them not just today, or tomorrow, but always! His mindful methods never lead us astray..... Inspiration never leaves our soul.

Getting Through

By Nicholas Rutigliano on Monday, May 11, 2020

Sometimes it can be a great challenge, Getting Through to our children, well mine are now adults. The constant nagging can be a turn off to them. But if they hear it from someone else, that can be a game changer as Mathew Kelly often nails it. So I slipped this wonderful little book inside her graduation card. In this fast paced life our youth have to deal with, they are so often focused on things that lead them off the path of faith. Not to overwhelm them with to much. this little book of hope, expresses the gift of patience. My Mom always said "good things come to those who wait". The Long View is a good book for this generation, I thank you Mathew for sharing the Holy Spirit with us. You have Changed my life for ever. I pray my daughters will. God Bless you.

Food for thought

By Nancy on Sunday, May 10, 2020

Bought it for my grandson, who is graduating from college next week. He
said that he appreciates that it is a thought for each day and it will be in a place
of pride on their living room coffee table.

Great Gift!

By Patricia on Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Matthew has brought to the young and old in the American Catholic Church an energy and enthusiasm that has ignited a fire of faith! His events, books and online inspirational messages have stroke the fire. The Long View is an excellent book that speaks to the young persons who are moving on in their lives and careers! Awareness of the long view in any situation opens the door to the Holy Spirit's Gifts especially Wisdom! Giving this gift at graduation is like giving the gift of Wisdom from the Holy Spirit.
