The date you were born and the date you died aren’t what really matter. It’s “the dash” — those years in between and what you do with them — that does. This inspirational book is one of the most searched for books on our site because it has such life-changing potential.
When Linda Ellis wrote the poem in one afternoon in 1996, she had no idea that it would change her life forever. In 239 words, she captured the “simple truths” of why we were put on this earth. Since then, “The Dash” has been published hundreds of times in books, newspapers, magazines, and company newsletters. It has also been read countless times at company meetings, graduations, and funerals.
The Dash is available in a beautifully designed gift book that contains an additional nine simple truths from Mac Anderson about what we can do to make a difference with our lives. Many of the motivational quotes from the book and similar inspiring quotes are available as framed prints that can be given as a gift or kept to remind yourself of what is important.
