Road Rules: Be the Truck. Not the Squirrel. Learn the 12 Essential Rules for Navigating the Road of Life was published earlier this month as my 18th book, but my first about life, motivation and self-help. My previous 17 books were all about business growth and development, but in 25 years of serving as a legal and strategic advisor to some of the world's most successful enterprises as well as growing and established global companies, I began to observe strong parallels to personal growth and development.
I had also been accumulating a series of song lyrics, parables, quotes, stories, television and film scenes, etc. which had influenced my own career or served as a source of inspiration or guidance, which all lead to a two year effort in bringing the book to the general public.
In Road Rules, I chose the act of driving as a metaphor for life and all twelve (12) essential rules relate back to the experiences we face on our daily commute. My hope was that by focusing on something that we all do each day, the lessons would be easy to understand, absorb and apply to the challenges we face, both in the short term in a weak economy as well as long-term as we plot out our road maps for our life's journey.
Let's take a look at a summary of a few key points and observations from some of my favorite road rules:

I would also strongly encourage you to share with me your own driving war stories, parables and metaphors, advice particularly those that have influenced your driving style or your intended destination.
