The author definitely knows their subject
Not a lot of practical guidelines, due to the briefness. The Power of Full Engagement gets in a lot more depth.
The substance of the advice
The Unschedule - already doing it!
The performance had a few flaws - a bit slow, some repeat errors that could have been fixed with editing, but it was a very authentic author's read, undoubtedly.
The objectiveness, the worldly points of view; examining all sides of the matter in a very convincing and mind-opening way.
"We need the habit to raise above itself."
Hopefully the one regarding happy habits....
Excellent performance! A great listen that has left me with many inspiring and hopeful thoughts.
Yes. Compelling insight, honesty and self-awareness in this storytelling. Excellent composition.
"When were we ever wrong? Not often, but not often is not never."
"Smart people, motivated to make things better, can do almost anything."
Thank you for this book! As an engineer myself, I am hoping it will help me to be able to better explain to my husband (a non-engineer) how an engineer's brain works and why it is so hard to not be a perfectionist all the time.... It has already helped me to better understand how foreign an engineer's thinking can be to someone with a non-engineer's mindset - by seeing this directly through Mr. Edward's eyes. A true eye opener in this regard!
Never say never, but probably not.
Dragging and laboured to keep to, what seemed to be, an enforced slow pace, and choppy at times as a result. Was this done to perhaps stretch the material in a certain pre-defined length of time....? Found myself waiting for the next word to come.
Some good pieces of advice that could be used in practice
Some good points, but way too many references to religion, which can be, as we all know, insulting to many people's open-minded intellect... I remember there were some such references in her book 168 Hours - You Have More Time than You Think and, while these were red flags, there weren't too many of them, and it was not difficult to disregard them and still focus on the many good points the book contained. But in this very short Guide to making over mornings, these references took a lot of the space, and it made it harder to focus on the objectiveness of the advice for the obvious reason that religious thinking is as far you one can possibly get from objectiveness....
A definite step down from 168 Hours. Please have some respect for the ever growing number of agnostics and atheists in the modern world - the same way respect was given to religious folks.... There is a very easy way to do it - leave religion out. It has no place in a book about time management.
