David Schaeffer is the director of High Endeavours; a lead coach with ‘Design a Decade’, author of the popular book Grieve Upwards and his new book Stress Less Live More. He has carried various leadership roles at local, state and national levels and specialises in the key areas of relationships, leadership development, grief recovery and stress minimisation. David is married to Tuula and between them they have four children, seven grandchildren and an extended family as dear to them as their blood relatives.

David writes this book from his discovery and recovery experiences. He uncovers three kinds of stress. The stress we choose, the stress that chooses us and everyday, unnecessary stress. He uses the tragedy of the 1998 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race as a backdrop for many important things we all need to learn.
