Be By Design - How I Be Is Up To Me by Christine Mc Kee, Psychologist
is an engaging book about the complex human engineering which includes
both the conscious and unconscious mind. The author's description of the
unconscious mind is an exhaustive delineation of  the mind as a repository
of information,, emotions, body regulator, habit formation, instincts and
energy conservation.

Mc Kee makes readers conscious of deeply held beliefs, relationships,
role playing, attitudes toward life and limiting beliefs. The most important
of these embedded parts of the unconscious mind are the limiting
constraints which tend to be self imposed. Examples are the need to
settle for less, avoid controversy to fit in or a resigned attitude to
struggle minimally for anything better.

Mc Kee covers the unhealthy flight or fight responses people have
to unmet needs, stress, pressure and perceived inadequacies.
The body reactions to these responses includes heart ailments,
drinking addictions, compulsive eating, bulimia, decreased
circulation in the digestive tract, assaults on the immune system,
reduced sex drive and a plethora of negations too numerous to

The author's approach toward dealing with these negations forthrightly is
to step back and analyze them dispassionately. This creates an
opportunity to learn from past responses while taking full responsibility
for strategies to move forward. Part of the solution to these problems
is seen in the ability to achieve self-empowerment and to manage
the classic comfort zones of familiarity which serve as stumbling
blocks to positive changes to improve our overall situation.

Mc Kee  defines the comfort zones as career, family, relationships,
spirituality, health, fitness and personal development or growth.
Traditionally, people use fear as an excuse to stay inside their
manufactured comfort zones. The author's approach is to take
on each comfort zone dispassionately and develop strategies to
overcome the limiting aspects by analyzing unwarranted

Mc Kee utilizes a multi-step intention model to move people
from inertia to action. These simple steps involve identifying
our intention or goal, analyzing our belief systems or
impediments to reaching a higher order, the needed tools
or objects to reach a higher order, the requisite behaviors
needed to move the agenda forward and diarizing progress
on the intended outcome.

Be By Design - How I Be Is Up To Me by Christine Mc Kee, Psychologist
is an important manual of living which will identify systematic ways to
cope with life more positively in order to overcome the classic
stumbling blocks people have toward moving forward. The presentation
transcends the traditional flight/fight modes to provide practical
accommodations for seemingly intractable impediments to improving
our condition in life.
