Author Edgar L. Vann releases ‘I Did It to Myself: True Confessions of an Overachiever.’

Because of Edgar L. Vann’s high-paced, overworked, hyperactive lifestyle, he experienced a sudden cardiac arrest. This experience was Vann’s wake-up call that helped produce a practical guide to breaking out of the prison of overwork and needless stress.

In his memoir titled “I Did It to Myself: True Confessions of an Overachiever” (published by WestBow Press), Vann takes the readers into a semi-autobiographical journey, sharing his close call with dying from overwork, offering biblical wisdom and practical strategies to help others cultivate a healthy life­ work balance.

In the book, Vann uses statistical data, entertaining anecdotes and Biblical scripture to convincingly demonstrate that being a do-it-all “work martyr” is a dead end. He shows how the path to a richer, more rewarding life starts with a better work-life integration and a focus on improved health.

“In such a fast paced world, the admonition is always to do more, open more time, make more sacrifices,” Vann expresses. “Hopefully, the readers will derive from this book a sense of balance and harmony that becomes the preferred path to fulfillment.”

Integrating life and work equitably is the message of the book. Through it, Vann aims to teach people who anxiously crave success a more excellent way to thrive and stay alive.
