During a conversation with a client yesterday, she thanked us for sending her the book The Longevity Plan: Seven Life-Transforming Lessons from Ancient China. “Rather than put it on the bookshelf,” she told me, “I’m keeping it on my bed-side table for easy reference.”

“Wait,” I said. “That’s it?”
“But…but that’s so simple!”
“Of course it is,” she said. “What did you expect?”
