John Jones was in New York City. He wanted to go to Boston, so he went to the airport and bought a ticket. Having a few minutes to spare, he walked over to some scales, stepped on them, inserted a coin, and down came his fortune: “Your name is John Jones, you weigh 188 pounds, and you are going to catch the 2:20 to Boston.” He was astounded because all of the information was correct. So he stepped back on the scales, inserted another coin and down came his fortune: “Your name is still John Jones, you still weigh 188 pounds, and you are still going to catch the 2:20 to Boston.” Now he was more puzzled than ever and sensing a trick, he decided to “fool” whoever or whatever was responsible. He went into the men’s room and changed clothes. Once again he stepped on the scales, inserted his coin and down came his fortune: “Your name is still John Jones, you still weigh 188 pounds, but you just missed the 2:20 to Boston.”
This book was written for the people who have missed the 2:20 to Boston or for some reason decided to get off before it reached its destination. In short, this book is for those who have missing much of the good life. It is designed to help you get the extras you deserve to have and are capable of getting.
