When community builder, connector, and family man Tim Schut realized his superpower, speech, was slowly diminishing, he didn’t suspect an extraordinarily rare degenerative brain disorder as the root cause.

He also didn’t expect to hear the doctor share a shortened life expectancy of ten to fifteen years. Yet this prognosis has not slowed Tim’s determination or drive to help others. Rather than hide from this disease, he’s choosing to share his story.

In this book, Tim has documented his life and the lessons he’s learned to benefit his children and future grandchildren. Today, Tim has a new superpower, optimism, and in these pages, he’s sharing the wisdom and perspective that has propelled him to incredible levels of family, community, and career success. Read this book and learn from the stories of a man deeply connected to the elements of life that matter most.
