About the book
Life is supposed to be fun. We knew this instinctively as kids, but somehow forgot on the way to adulthood. We got busy and overwhelmed, started valuing things that don’t matter, and learned to follow a ton of so-called rules:
Only celebrate when the calendar gives you permission
Don’t make a mess
Don’t play hookey
Hide your weirdness
Hide your wrinkles
Care what other people think
Following these rules is a terrific way to stress you out, sap your energy, and ensure a boring life. But there’s a better way. In this enlightening and beautiful full-color book, author and artist Jason Kotecki uncovers some of the most useless rules so you can shift perspective and start seeing the world with wonder once again.
It’s time to stop living by someone else’s rules. Your life is a story, and a short one at that. Discover what small but mighty actions you can take today to turn your life into the fun, adventurous and exciting story you deserve.

Happy Birthday, Jason! I read through the free online sample download and was impressed. It compelled me to put together a list of people who I knew would love (and some who desperately NEED) this book and had no problem coming up with 10 names. So…I plan to pre-order from the Lemonade Stand. However, I also placed a preorder today with Barnes &Noble for 3 copies. I feel like it is critical to have this on hand for those times when people with a blatant cases of adultitis stumble into my life and need some on-the-spot therapy! Thanks to you and Kim (and family) for making our lives better in so many ways!
