Put Your Pants On and Get to Work - Ten Principles for Zestful Living (Paperback)
Living every day with zest hinges on following ten principles which apply equally to everyone. No matter how much money you have, your level of education, occupation, age, or where you live - the principles work if you stick with them. Their roots have been established over generations and stress-tested during times of war, prosperity, triumph, and adversity. Begin living more zestfully. It's never too late to start.
Author Kalman Magyar has a remarkably eccentric skill set and atypical background. He is an international business lawyer and professor with over two decades of wide-ranging experience in courtrooms, boardrooms and classrooms throughout the United States and Canada. He is also a renowned Hungarian folk musician who has appeared in the world's most prominent performing venues and obscurest ethnic community halls.
Kalman guides you through his unusual personal history while decoding his ten principles for a zestful life. The adventure begins with his family's ordeals in war-ravaged Hungary. It continues as a first-generation immigrant in New Jersey. Valuable lessons are drawn from Kalman's unconventional development in the legal and musical fields. The odyssey is far from smooth, with failures, challenges and missteps along the way. These experiences form the genesis of the principles that collectively provide a blueprint for living zestfully. All day, every day.
Married with three children, Kalman splits his time between Toronto, Ontario and Naples, Florida. Kalman also takes frequent trips to Budapest, Hungary, the land of his ancestors where his journey begins.
