About Track

In this episode we talk to Graham Owens about the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”. A memoir by Mitch Albom that tells the story of the author’s former college professor, Morrie Schwartz, who is dying from ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). The book is divided into fourteen chapters, each covering a different topic of discussion between Mitch and Morrie.

Throughout the book, Morrie shares his wisdom on topics such as love, forgiveness, death, and the meaning of life. He emphasizes the importance of human connection and encourages readers to focus on the things that truly matter in life, rather than getting caught up in material possessions or social status.

Some of the most actionable content in the book includes:

  1. Prioritize meaningful relationships: Morrie emphasizes the importance of nurturing relationships with loved ones and making time for them, even in the midst of a busy life.
  2. Cultivate a sense of gratitude: Morrie encourages readers to appreciate the simple things in life and to find joy in the present moment, rather than constantly striving for more.
  3. Face your fears: Morrie advises readers to confront their fears and not let them hold them back from living a full and meaningful life.
  4. Embrace vulnerability: Morrie shares his belief that vulnerability is a key aspect of human connection, and encourages readers to be open and honest with those around them.
  5. Live with purpose: Morrie encourages readers to find their own sense of purpose and to live each day with intention and meaning.
