  • 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life

    One recent December, at age 53, John Kralik found his life at a terrible, frightening low: his law firm was failing; he was struggling through a second divorce; he was living in a tiny apartment where he froze in the winter and baked in the summer. Then, during a walk in the hills on New Year’s Day, John was struck by the belief that his life might become at least tolerable if, instead of focusing on what he didn’t have, he could find some way to be grateful for what he had.

    Story

    This is an inspiring story of redemption that is enhanced by the emotion that is evident in the author's voice as he reads his own work. Although I can see how some might compare it to "How Starbucks Saved My Life," there's none of the self-serving name dropping and thinly veiled bragging that permeates "Starbucks," just a humble tale of a man who turns his life around by shifting his focus outward. If I had been a recipient of one of his thank-yous, it would not have bothered me that the note was the product of his project (as another commenter said) because it was clear that each of the 365 notes expressed sincere gratitude.

    I highly recommend this audiobook.

    There are all sorts of reasons people procrastinate. What are yours? This book draws on scientific research on procrastination conducted over more than 20 years by the author and his colleagues, to help you learn what stops you from getting things done so that you can find the solutions that will really work. Contrary to conventional wisdom, chronic procrastination is NOT about poor time management, but about self-sabotaging tendencies that can prevent you from reaching your full potential.

    Story

    This book was a complete waste of money. Although this man is supposed to be an authority on procrastination, every chapter is just a different way to say that there is no real cause for procrastination other than that you are lazy. His solution - stop making excuses and get over it.

    Even the colleague who wrote the foreword appears not to have been completely impressed by this book.

    Bottom line - do not get this book.
