As some of the other reviewers have said, the narration isn't spectacular. It's not terrible either, just sounds a little dated. The information is good; mostly common sense stuff but a good reminder. I like that he gives action exercises for each section, which makes it easier to assimilate the information. Every time he said, "here are seven action steps," I would rewind 10sec. and create a bookmark. Then I could go back and make notes of all those sections, which helps not having the physical book.
Some of this information is great to share with your kids too.
I started listening with great expectations (after reading his good book - eat that frog), but was disappointed to find that this book does not offer any good advise. It does list out all those things that one might wish for in life. I found this bit useful because I could make myself consious of what I also would like in life - but there was very less useful advise on how to get it.
In some parts I found myself laughing with the suggestions - spend 3 hours extra at work, sleep for 8 hours, spend lots of time with family etc etc far exceeds 24 hours!!
While this book isn't perfect, the information is priceless. I listen almost every week to remind myself to stay focused. With so many distractions in life, this helps me remember what I should do when I need to do it. Thank You Author for putting this info together. I am making a copy to share with everyone important in my life.
Do what I should to, when I need to do it, whether I feel like it or not.
This book is very similar to previous Brian Tracy works -
Realizing the root of procrastination, where it comes from and how to rise above it once and for all.
My favorite character was ME! Brian Tracy has obviously been researching my life when he wrote this book. Detailing all of my bad
Taking the path of least resistance is hard wired into our psyche. It takes certain skills to to make goal setting and achievement the true way to fulfillment as an adult.
I thought Brian Tracey shared many techniques and lots of valuable information on this audio.
No. I listened to this one chapter at a time and did the suggested exercises.
I recommend anyone interested in becoming more focused, directed and productive... LISTEN TO THIS AUDIO!
Motivating and easy to go back and reference specific topics for further focus. Very easy to put into action immediately.
It has ranked the highest so far in the books I have listened to in the self development range I have listened to.
How he set it out on the different topics
The whole book was good
99% of what I listen to is business based. This would be in the top 10 of every book I've listened to based on it's great content alone.
The book is very well laid out. The concepts are very easy to understand and described in such a way that you feel you can do them.
The only weak part of this book is the narration. While I believe Brian Tracy is a genius and in incredible author, he should have left the reading to a pro. While I appreciate he is a great speaker and presenter, he miscalculated that those skills and reading an audio book are one and the same.
It's not bad to the point of distraction, but if you listen to a lot of audio books as I do, you realize that it could've been done better.
No. I listened to this while I was driving over the period of about a week.
Overall, this is a very good audio book and highly recommend it.
