I really liked his examples of tasks and goals along with how to tackle the issues that are keeping you from performing at peak optimization. I did, however, begin to think towards the end, that he was flip-flopping his stance to get the biggest, ugliest task out of the way first on down to slicing it up into manageable chunks "bologna" or busting a hole in part of it "swiss cheese," and then went all the way to say that you need to enjoy life, take time off, and spend time with your family. While the beginning is a huge motivator to get moving, but completely unrealistic for having a life, the latter part is more enjoyable thinking, but left me de-motivated.
Keep this in mind while you listen, take notes along the way, and you're surely reach a happy medium.
This is only my fourth audiobook, but I found it very helpful and have recommended it to others. I am currently listening to Brian Tracy's
The truth of the advise.
read by the author...authority.
Concise and solid effective ways to accomplish more in your life. I highly recommend this to those of you who can't get anything accomplished and don't know where to start.
Yes, as there were good suggestions throughout the whole presentation.
there were concrete suggestions like plan in advance and apply the 80/20 rule to everything.
The audio format allowed me to get the information on the go yet was organized enough to allow me to take useful notes.
I have had a tendency to do lots of less important tasks first thinking that it would reduce the load but found that getting the toughest one done first actually does make the rest easier and faster.
My Opinion's for your review, Thank You!
Its a different approach but it works, Brian Tracy always has good advice and is usually easy to understand. This one caught me a little off guard but when you really look at his message you will understand where he is coming from. I found it to have great advise. I leaned something new as I almost always do with his books.
Perfect, Simple, Time-saver
I can't pick one that would come first. The most memorable for me is all the moments when the realisation hit me and the thought was 'of course!'
This is the first audio book I have ever listened to, so for me it was a real break through that I absorb more listening than reading. Reading for me is best done for proofing or instructions. I really enjoyed this audio book and did not find it boring at all so hopefully the rest to follow can live up to Brian Tracy.
Brian Tracy is a master of sales & business processes. This book does not dissapoint. He gives several tangible means for anyone who struggles with procrastination and his suggestions really work!
I've listened to several of his other works and this one is excellent like the others with the focus this time being on getting moving and not procrastinating. It has valuable time management and planning strategies that work.
I in particular liked his information on setting goals and implementing them.
This author presents several suggestions that worked for him in his career, but I found that most of them would not work for me. Several were a little contradictory and not prioritized. The bottom line is that (no surprise) these techniques are not universally algorithmic so, as with any advice, every reader will have to use common sense to decide which method to apply to each situation they find themselves in.
I finally found a book that helped me organize, and get started with my goals
The simple lesson breakdowns
If you're serious about productivity get this book and follow everything in it. I have accomplished more in two weeks than I have all year!
