Author ~
I bought Dana's book a few weeks ago and started to read it with a healthy dose of skepticism as is my normal practice on anything. While reading her book and reflecting I found great comfort and relief. Many things in my past that I let make me feel embarrassed, full of regret, or shame, I was able to let it go of it all because of Dana's words. I recommend her book to anyone who wants to spend quality time in introspection for the purpose of learning to live in the moment for peace, self acceptance, and a stronger self efficacy. I feel better about myself and am enjoying life more; you will too.

By jebry - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Doing The Thing (Perfect Paperback) Dana Quade's book "Doing The Thing" is like having your own personal guru with you in times of self discovery and during the challenges we all face in our lives. I carry it with me, since it is small and compact in size but huge in it's messages. The difference between this and so many other self-help, spiritual books is that it is not long winded and you can virtually open it to any page and discover a new way of looking at a situation that you had never considered before. You do not have to necessarily start at the beginning to be able to grasp what the message is. The message is really about getting back to your core being where loving yourself is easy. It's about bringing back some of that happiness you knew as a child and taking care of yourself through loving yourself first and then spreading that inner joy to the people around you. It is practical, loving, playful and wise and demonsrates ways in which the obstacles in your life can be overcome much easier than you could imagine. I can't say enough about this life- altering gem of a book. It is truly a diamond in the sea of self-help books; it is all you will ever need. It covers parenting, emotions, anger, relationships, especially your relationship with yourself and much more. It's simply profound. Love It!!

Love Yourself
, By 
(Gold Bar, WA USA) -
This review is from: Doing The Thing (Perfect Paperback)
"Doing the Thing" is treating yourself with loving kindness. The author makes the case for learning to truly love ourselves, but she then goes on to give us very specific, workable, and in many cases, fun, ways to do this.
From handling emotions and relationships with family, friends, and strangers, she takes us on a ride of self-discovery that is empowering. There are lots of personal stories and examples as well as exercises and drawings to explain the processes being discussed. This book really is about how to quit focusing on the world outside of yourself and learning how to focus inside - then living from that place of centeredness and power.
Dana is a wife, mother and health care professional who has spent 30 years studying and experiencing self-actualization and human potential. In this book, she shares the fruit of her own processes.

5.0 out of 5 stars doing the thing, By Bob A (Seattle) - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Doing The Thing (Perfect Paperback) The book " Doing the Thing " was both unique and refreshing. D Quade captured a style of writing that closed a circle on her points. She showed a special talent for clarity in very complex situations by citing real situations. Most self-help books leave you wondering and wandering. This story of her life and thoughts slams the door on questions. It's clear. It's complete, and it's well written. Life is a journey. The life she discribes in the book is a miracle. It offered me a chance to truly change my thinking. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  | PermalinkComment Comment

This review is from: Doing The Thing (Perfect Paperback)
Doing The Thing has improved my life immeasurably. With insights and clarity provided by the book I have been able to focus not only on what I can change, but what is Ok to let go of. This book provides strategies for the letting go process. Also, while I thought I had a decent self-image I became aware that I had no interest in romancing myself, or bringing joy to my own life, because on some level I didn't care enough to try. I now have a renewed sense of self, a much healthier and positive self-image, and more courage to stay on a path of awareness and self love.

I would highly recommend Doing The Thing for anyone interested in feeling more joy in their life.

Hi Dana,
Thank you again for your willingness to jump in and share on such short notice. I appreciate your flexibility... and the way you connected the theme of your book to the topic at hand.
In the short time you had, you passionately and authentically conveyed meaningful information. Your presence came forth in an inspiring way. I was very pleased and only wished we had more time.
I received several comments afterwards regarding the level of "candid sharing." Many seemed to have been moved and validated in their own experiences.
Thanks again! You are a blessing.

Dana,
I wish I could bottle up your speaking style and give it to others. You are very sincere and genuine. More importantly, your conviction in your message comes through. These are things that I cannot teach. I am however, more aware of these things in my delivery after working with you which is helping me to improve my attitude when in front of groups. So, helping you helped me too.

Healer ~
Dana,
I think even you would be amazed at my progress this morning. From the way I zombie-walked away yesterday, you might not think I'd make it home. Well, I stopped for gas (walking v-e-r-y slowly), and had to stop for milk at Safeway. Surprisingly, carrying the heavy gallon jug to the counter made it easier to walk. I didn't take pills when I got home and slept well without them. This morning, I arose with only a bit of stiffness. But the pain of walking had disappeared. DISAPPEARED! I even managed a bit of a dance to my morning music. However, I'm taking it easy today to let my body catch up.

You are such a healer —
and I am so grateful both to know you and to receive your special skills. THANK YOU!
