About Get Life Right

Get Life Right will help you make the most of your turn at bat, get you into the fast lane to your potential and change your life forever.

A quick read through the chapter titles shows how this book can touch every aspect of your life. It will replace thinking that limits you with thinking that empowers you.

It is a compact and easy to read encyclopedia of ideas, solutions and ways to think, designed to get and keep your life on track. You read the parts you need, as you need them, and refer back to it often. It’s the book you’ll keep forever.

It is reassuring, empowering and has no “shoulds.” It shows you how to ramp up to your goals, act as if you can acquire them, and look at yourself as if from outside yourself. That’s the skill that shows you where you are and keeps you focused on where you’re going.

Presented properly, self-help concepts are easy to grasp and apply. Like slang, they use very few words to capture the thoughts, and as soon as you hear them you know what they mean.  They are fun and you can use them right away; that’s what I’m talking about!

About The Author David Dunn

David Dunn, author of Get Life Right

David Dunn biking

By the time he was twenty, Dave had only read 5 books beyond the required reads in school. But he picked the right ones, all dealing with life strategies. They helped him manage his career, retire early, have a close family, and live a life with security and plenty of adventure in spite of his dyslexia and memory limitations. He learned, as you will, that when handled properly our deficits can make massive contributions to our success.

He grew up in San Diego and has lived in Phoenix, Denver, San Francisco, Chicago and Orange County. He traveled extensively finding locations for businesses and having buildings built for many of them. As soon as he retired, he started teaching the lessons that had served him so well throughout his life. To them, he added the insights of hundreds of leading self-help authors and psychologists. When he saw how dramatically these ideas could change lives he had to write a book  He set out to create the best collection of self-help solutions, ideas and strategies and make them like proverbs: short, easy to remember, and applicable to everyone in every walk of life.

For fun, Dave writes, hikes and bikes. He has been dirt biking in many challenging places around the world. He loves hanging with his grandchildren, landscaping, and he is finally taking up swing, boogie and tap dancing.
