No Shortcuts Here

Nothing worth having can be had quickly.  Life is not something to be cheapened with tricks or second-rate dabbling.  We are all prone to want to get to the goal or end point as fast and efficiently as possible.  But is a life worth living to be traveled the same way that we manage to manipulate a paperclip into many different uses?  Hacking our way through our days is a disservice to our lives. Mastering life and living is a much different concept to Lee Ann than is our current market bent toward “life hacks” and “life hacking.”

Two Announcements from Lee Ann:

1.  The Hooray for You: 365 Get-Up-and-GO-GO Quotes for Your Year give-a-way has been extended to Monday, July 17th at 11:59 p.m.  Lee Ann mistakenly gave the wrong dates in the podcast last week!  So here’s what you need to know:

Write a review of Hooray Weekly in iTunes (something that will make your Mom proud).

Send an email with your mailing address to Lee Ann (click here)

Get your FREE book of Hooray for You: 365 Get-Up-and-GO-GO Quotes for Your Year and accept our humble gratitude!

2.  The official book launch for You Are All That: Creating a Great Life with Affirmations is this week. So grab your copies at or at Amazon.  It’s not “Stuart Smalley-ish”…not the 90’s version of “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And dog-gone-it, people like me.” It’s all-Lee Ann–‘upbeat without being sickeningly sweet…’

About the Author Lee Ann Hopkins

"Smile and the world smiles with you." That's the motto she lives by. Lee Ann is perfectly imperfect and unabashed about it even as she strives for higher and "better" every day. Both her can-do and her foibles are as fabulous as her smile. So take a moment and breathe in Lee Ann's "hooray" for today! Ms. Hopkins is host of the podcast Hooray Weekly, founder of The Hooray Daily and Hooray Living, a speaker, writer and do-gooder, who believe-it-or-not has been a public-interest attorney and clergywoman for longer than she cares to admit. Check out her books, You Are All That: Creating a Great Life with Affirmations, and Hooray for You: 365 Get-Up-and-Go-Go Quotes for Your Year. When you write her, send along a clergy and attorney joke. She loves 'em!
