Berta has worked hard, followed the rules, steadily climbed the ladder, and made a "success" of herself. She has the lifestyle and the expensive goodies to prove it. So why is she still dissatisfied and unfulfilled? Where's the self-esteem that should have come with all this "success"? What is she doing wrong?
Soul-searching, introspection - and a little serendipity - lead Berta to the conclusion that she needs to redefine some of the terms she has been using to describe her motivation, her path, and her ultimate goals.
This is a simple story, easy and quick to read. But don't let that fool you. Its message is life-changing.
