About the book

On a global scale, the disruptive, competitive, and challenging way of life most of us are experiencing, has resulted in many adults rethinking what’s important to them … what really matters in their life.

Are you tired of chasing other people’s expectations of who you should be, what you should own, how much you should earn, and what you need to do to be successful? If so, you might have been caught in the Success Trap.

This book is an evidence-based blueprint to help you approach success across all areas of your life through a less complex, more practical, and accessible way. With proven tips and strategies to help you strive to be at your best, even in tough times, you will discover why and how your intentions impact almost every measure of success in your life and how forming trust-based relationships is the foundation to living a more balanced, meaningful, flourishing, and prosperous life.

What others are saying about LIVING in the Light of Day

From the opening reflections to the expansive list of 25 qualities of a good life, we are treated to a patient and understanding guide on how to grow into a trustworthy driver of your own life – and a trustworthy companion in the better world we all need to build together. While news stories abound of crooks and swindlers dodging consequences and living large on their crimes, Living in the Light of Day reminds us that true wealth, success, and happiness are built on a foundation of trust.

Olivia Sarah-Le Lacheur

As a former United Nations peacekeeper and military commander, I know the importance of trust, particularly when it comes to leading teams on the battlefield, where your decisions directly impact on the lives of others. Trust needs to be earnt and is an integral part of our lives, communities, and our world. David delivers a resourceful and insightful book that will help you become a better person, leader, and ultimately, become the best version of yourself.
Major Matina Jewell (retd)

This powerful book is rich with wisdom, brimming with compelling stories, and inspiring in its open invitation to you – the reader – to transform into a higher, more enlightened version of yourself. David’s clear, honest voice doesn’t just entreat you to evolve, he shows you how. A patient and wise guide, David shows you how to intentionally choose to become a better version of you.

President, Mindscaling, Author, Small Acts of Leadership: 12 Intentional Behaviors That Lead to Big Impact

There are so many self-help books these days that you can pick what you want to change and there will be a book for it. This book, however, is enlightening in the way that it addresses what we all need to get back TRUST. Trust in ourselves, others, and our purpose and then to live life to the fullest in the light of day.
Nicolette Barnard

Head of HR Pacific, Siemens

David Penglase takes an established principle, Justice Brandeis’ famous ‘Sunlight Test’, and invests it with additional depth and renewed relevance. His conclusion that a good life is one in which we become the best version of ourselves invites deep reflection – on many levels – in the best tradition of philosophy.
Dr Simon Longstaff AO

Executive Director, The Ethics Centre

An insightful, illuminating, and above all helpful book on a topic of real importance that is often overlooked and under appreciated in our modern world
Dr. Tim Lomas

Senior Lecturer in Positive Psychology, University of East London

David’s latest work couldn’t come at a better time, but when you consider the subject matter he canvasses in Living in the Light of Day, when has his advice and observations not been relevant. In all of our relationships starting in the family home, business and across countries the foundation of how we exist, conduct ourselves and thrive as a society is based on trust. With it we grow, without it we never reach full potential. I commend David on his work and believe society will be richer with his latest book.
Peter Baines OAM

Founder, Hands Across the Water

I loved this book from the moment I started reading it. It is such an important piece of work in a time when it appears we are losing our sense of direction and our understanding of what is truth and what is fiction. I encourage you to engage deeply with this elegant and enlightening guide to a better and more purposeful life.
Dr Adam Fraser

Director of the e-Lab (TM), Author of ‘The Third Space’ and ‘Strive’

David has so eloquently found a way to capture and share the depth of his life’s work and learnings. It is written in the way he lives, on Purpose, with Trust and Integrity. This book is for anyone that is committed to being the best human being they can be.
Larry Fingleson

Co-founder and Managing Director The Growth Project & Founder & CEO of The Catalytic Impact Institute

David’s book is a powerful reframe with practical strategies for leading a happy, fruitful life. Whether doubtful of the road ahead or looking to take life to the next level, this book provides more than band aids for challenges but a real strategy for life.
