9781250067104: Penguins Can't Fly: +39 Other Rules That Don't Exist

Life is supposed to be fun. We knew this instinctively as kids, but somehow forgot on the way to adulthood. We got busy and overwhelmed, started valuing things that don't matter, and learned to follow the rules that don't even exist:

hate mondays
only celebrate when the calendar gives you permission
don't make a mess
don't play hooky
hide your weirdness
hide your wrinkles
care what other people think

Following these so-called rules is a terrific way to stress you out, sap your energy, and ensure a boring life. But there's a better way. In his enlightening book, author and artist Jason Kotecki uncovers some of the most useless rules so you can shift perspective and start seeing the world with wonder once again.

It's time to stop living by someone else's rules. Your life is a story, and a short one at that. Make it a good one.

About the Author:

Jason Kotecki is an artist, speaker and author of several books, including Penguins Can't Fly & 39 Other Rules That Don't Exist.

Besides making art that inspires and delights people all over the world, Jason is in high demand as an engaging professional speaker. He empowers organizations and individuals to restore balance, prevent burnout, and achieve new levels of productivity and innovation with real-world strategies that tap into the timeless wisdom of childhood.

Jason and his wife, Kim (a former kindergarten teacher), are the dynamic duo behind Escape Adulthood and founders of the Cure Adultitis Institute. In their crusade to annihilate Adultitis, they inspire and encourage people to design lives with less stress and more fun.

Jason is a Batman fan, Star Wars watcher, retro t-shirt wearer, avid eater of sugar-laden cereal, and father of three kids. He lives with his family in picturesque Madison, Wisconsin, where they enjoy long walks by the lake and eat way too many cheese curds.

Review:

“In order to innovate you have to break some rules. And if you want to have a great life, you need to create a widely diversified portfolio of unforgettable memories. Penguins Can't Fly will help you do both.” ―Daniel Burrus, author of The New York Times bestseller, Flash Foresight
