the book is a story about a guy who lives unhappily in a valley, who wants to get to “the Peak.” He meets a wise old man who lives on a peak and it changes his work and life forever. The old man tells him that all our lives are full of peaks and valleys. He likens it to our heartbeat. “Like a healthy heartbeat, your personal Peaks and Valleys are an essential part of a normal, healthy life. So are the Plateaus, if they are times of healthy rest when you take stock of what is happening and pause to think about what to do next. Peaks and Valleys are not just the good and bad times that happen to you. They are also how you feel inside and respond to outside events.” So, he goes on to say that we can make good use of our time in the Valley. There are valuable lessons to be learned in the Valley and, you can’t stay on the Peak if you are not prepared. Even though the old man lives on the peak, he goes down into the valley from time to time for provisions. He says that both physical peaks and valleys, and personal Peaks and Valleys are connected. How? He says…”The errors you make in today’s good times create tomorrow’s bad times. And the wise things you do in today’s bad times create tomorrow’s good times. People who use a Peaks and Valleys approach during bad times make things better when they return to basics, and concentrate on what matters most.” If you look back over the course of your life I’m sure you can see the Peaks and Valleys. I know I can. He says…”the path out of the valley appears when you choose to see things differently.”
