The Last Arrow:
Save Nothing for the Next Life
by Erwin Raphael McManus
When: Monday nights 7pm Oct 1, 8, 15, 22
When you come to the end of your days, you will not measure your life based on successes and failures. All of those will eventually blur together into a single memory called ‘life.’ What will give you solace is a life with nothing left undone. One that’s been lived with relentless ambition, a heart on fire, and with no regrets. On the other hand, what will haunt you until your final breath is who you could have been but never became and what you could have done but never did. The Last Arrow is your roadmap to a life that defies odds and alters destinies. Discover the attributes of those who break the gravitational pull of mediocrity as cultural pioneer and thought leader Erwin McManus examines the characteristics of individuals who risked everything for a life that seemed impossible. Imagine living the life you were convinced was only a dream. We all begin this life with a quiver full of arrows. Now the choice is yours. Will you cling to your arrows or risk them all, opting to live until you have nothing left to give? Time is short. We invite you to join with us as we read and discuss The Last Arrow and begin the greatest quest of our lives.
What is this LifeInsights group all about?
As some of you may have known, we recently decided to open up my photography studio as a place to connect with each other beyond “just photography” and get to know each other more and share in this experience we call “life.”
Community leaders (Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler, for example) have been saying we should do more to get to know our neighbors, to connect with one another in the community, and engage in dialogue and friendship. So I decided to do my part, and with the help of friends, we started a book discussion group at my studio in NW Austin. After our first book discussion, we enjoyed it so much we started talking about doing another book study, as well as going out to dinner as a group to celebrate completion of our first book study.
We have since done more book studies and discussions and plan to continue, mostly on Monday evenings (but not every Monday Evening)!
If you think you’d like to join us, just send me an email () and I can add you to a new google group we set up to keep in touch with each other. .
Our little group is called “LifeInsights” since that is what we are doing, exploring and sharing about meaningful life insights.
By the way, what does this have to do with photography? I mean, I am doing this at my photography studio, so what’s the connection? Well, my studio just seemed like a good place as any to do this since it has a classroom space. But yes there is a connection to photography. The images we create are influenced tremendously by how we see the world around us. In fact how we see the world around us influences our photography way more than the particular make and model of camera we own. So why not spend some time exploring meaningful insights about life? It might just affect your photography, and you will likely make some new friends along the way. And if you are not a photographer, you are definitely welcome to join us also!
Interested? Let’s talk. 🙂
