The Symphony Of Your Life

In September of 2001, disaster struck and the Western world was changed forever. What followed as the world economy descended into recession was unprecedented in our lifetime. We had no formulas, no pat answers for how to respond. 

A pilot for one of the commercial airlines devastated by the events of 9/11, Mark Hardcastle began journaling his thoughts and observations as he dealt with the tragedy and chaos around him. He saw patterns emerge among his peers, both inside and outside  the airline, as everyone worked their way through the first years of the twenty-first century.

In The Symphony of Your Life, Hardcastle has distilled these patterns into stories about restoring harmony when life has gone out of tune. Sure, bad things often happen to good people. But events outside our control need not determine who we are. 

Using metaphors from his passion for choral conducting and his time in the U.S. Air Force, Hardcastle helps us gain a new perspective on the situations we are facing today and provides us tools to prosper when future challenges try to slow us down. He shows us how examining our own lives can and should give us the confidence to conduct our own powerful Symphony.
