For the last 27 years as a management and marketing consultant, Don Shapiro made a name for himself by asking the questions that no one else asked. That same curiosity got him thinking about this inner wisdom or voice that occasionally tried to guide him down one path or another. When he would follow that wisdom even though he had little or no facts to support taking that fork in the road, surprising things happened.
He has been studying how people make choices, improve their decisions and deal with change for over four decades. With the Life Is A Fork In The Road book research project, Don has now expanded his quest to all the choices we make at the personal and professional level.
The book title “Life Is A Fork In The Road” and this entire project started when Don sent an email to his step daughter Kristin trying to help her solve a problem. Read the full story about the birth of the book’s title. To finish the book, Don is collecting stories from people around the world and listening to their insights about the choices they have made. Don is writing Life Is A Fork In The Road on the Facebook Page for this book project. Join the discussion and read his messages.
A curious nature, a passion for uncovering what causes things to happen and a creative spirit have driven Don Shapiro from childhood through his entire career. Sometimes it’s driven other people crazy (but that’s a story for another day)! Now it has lead him to create this world wide community all sharing stories, reading stories and offering comments to discover more about how our inner wisdom works.
