review: unfinished business by lee kravitz

For many years Lee Kravitz was too busy living his life to take care of what he now refers to as his “unfinished business.” It’s a very relatable subject. So often our everyday business prevents us from doing some of what we intended. For Kravitz, the unfinished business was quite varied, ranging from a small debt that nagged at him to a quest to uncover some of his family history and reunite some estranged members. Kravitz wasn’t motivated to take care of any of it until he lost his job and suddenly had quite a bit of time to spare. He covers his journey swiftly, but also thoughtfully and sincerely.

At the end of his tale, Kravitz implores everyone to take care of that unfinished business. Referencing Martin Buber (and reminding me of when I took Rhetorical Criticism in college), Kravitz says, “Think of yourself as a Thou and not an It and you will make the time and expend the energy to do the right thing on an ongoing basis, keeping your unfinished business to a minimum.”
