This book is a wonderful book that keeps thing in proper perspective. I am much more content and happier by just staying in the moment and focusing in on one thing at a time. Highly recommend it.
Author identifies and helps you understand how some ways of thinking are prejudicial to bringing discipline and focus to life, thereby changing your perception towards the way we are normally inclined to do things and, in doing so, effecting change in a more efficient and meaningful way.
Book is short, easy to read and filled with interesting anecdotes that will help you better grasp what is being discussed. I have noticed significant improvements in my abilities to concentrate and focus since applying what was taught in the book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their abilities.
I also got the audio version. You can listen to a chapter every night and finish in a week. Different methods work best for different people, this one worked best for me. I find that the information sinks in best this way.
I also highly recommend that you take some notes of the main points whilst listening/reading. Writing things down also helps you learn them, add to that the fact that you have a concise and neat summary by the time you finish.
Apply what you have learned! Buying and reading the book count for, at best, good intentions. You have to fully integrate the concepts into your life if you want to reap their true benefits.
The author read the book with all the meaning he meant and feelings he had when he wrote it. If someone else would have read the book it may not have had such a strong impact. The authors has rich life insights.
I heard this book on my way to and from work. Immediately I was able to use the insights Mr. Sterner gave. As a Merchandise manager, I get calls,emails and other things which push the limit of what I can concentrate on. Mr. Sterner's message of slow down and focus was needed.
I highly recommend this book and heard it twice. This is a real jem.
Hi I'm Matt. I help companies get found online in Google. I love to read, and I love just about anything to do with Science, & learning.
I guess it's basic info, but I learned a lot.. I say if you're new to phone sales..
(< 3 yrs in sales) you should get this. helps start a solid foundation.
The author made his essential points in the first 1/3 of the book, and did not need to give example, after example of what was already stated.
Not likely, if the book is over $7.00 and this is his strategy.
Everything after the fist 45 min.
I was hoping the author was going to cover more ground in how the mind works, and what strategies can be used to access other ways of thinking and focusing.
The contents of this book are on point and can be applied immediately. My only gripe is the speaker, whom is the author, seemed to focus on pronouncing every word very clearly which is great but resulted in a monotone effect throughout the whole book. Highly recommend!
The ideas, while not revolutionary were a valuable perspective and one not always applied to the ideas of practice. In being of a growth mindset an essential methodology for thinking for success. Although the delivery was less than exciting the practices ring true for all aspects of life in business, personal skill and relationships. A unique perspective on how you can incorporate a practicing mind(set) into all you do for improved outcomes and enjoyment.
I love knowledge, wisdom. I love to be inspired, motivated and encouraged. Business is my passion. One day I will be rich.
Makes you put a lot of things in perspective such as your present life. Take one day at time.
Immediately from the first to the last word I was hooked. Old wisdom in a new coat, brought with feeling. I'm so grateful for this book that I got to know via Brian Johnson on his YouTube channel. Thank you thank you!
