Putting some effort into life, and reaping the rewards: 'Good Burdens'

"Anything in life worth having is worth working for," Andrew Carnegie once said.

We suspect Christina Crook will applaud the sentiment, because she also feels like we get more meaning from life when we put our backs into what we do. It can range from raising polite kids to completing a project at work.

We get many more examples in Crook's latest book, Good Burdens: How to Live Joyfully in the Digital Age. It's about living fulfilling lives in a time when screens can gobble up all our spare seconds.

Crook's previous book was about taking a digital break, The Joy of Missing Out. She returns to the JX with an overview of Good Burdens.
