    "Really Good Step-by-Step"

    For such a short book, there was a lot, and I mean A LOT, here. The most important things are to develop the essential mental skills of Clarity (become absolutely clear on who you are and what you want; after all, you can't hit a target you can't see), Focus (on your most important goals--be specific, make them easily stated, and write them down), and Concentration (pursue single-mindedly until you've completed your tasks and achieved your goals). This all comes through practice and repetition, and it'd be a good idea to follow those with expertise.
    There's info here on how we've become addicted to distraction (that ding that says someone's just texted you releases chemicals in the brain, and it only gets worse the more you drop everything to focus on said texts), plus how we can find our own power through the blessing of finding ours in states of excellence (again more practice/repetition).
    What I liked most was near the end with step-by-step suggestions that reminded me of Angela Duckworth's "Grit," only without the plethora of scientific data (which is fine for "Grit," but really, I need a How-To at times). Resilience is covered. You look for the good when you're in a set-back. You learn from mistakes and accept responsibility for the way you choose to react. Pre-program solutions by thinking of the way you'll respond to possible problems, and begin immediately to improve upon the worst that can happen before it ever does.
    There are no anecdotes in this book, no lighthearted humor: It's strictly: This is how you do it. Do you want to get it done. It's a great listen, easy to get through, and it makes life look like something that's possible to get through with success. Recommended.

    "Take notes"

    There are a lot of key ideas in this book that have been mentioned in other books but never outlined so eloquently as in this one. Listen to keywords as they will be repeated more than once and write them down for memory. This books has some useful techniques to overcoming the sense of feeling overwhelmed when faced with a new idea or with trying to find your purpose.

    Rated 4 stars on performance as voice was a little relaxed you have to try not to fall asleep but the trance like voice & tone may be just what you need to hear.

    1. Decide exactly what you want.
    2. Write it down.
    3. Set a deadline.
    4. Make a list of actions.
    5. Organize the list into a plan.
    6. Take a step towards your list of actions.
    7. Do something every day that moves you toward your goal.

    "Meh."

    Nothing exciting or proprietary about this particular book. It's read in a very whispery voice that almost out me to sleep.

    I was also very annoyed by the plethora of bible verses and references to the "creator." If I had known this was a religious book, I would have passed on it from the beginning. I am sure there is a market for this sort of religious inspiration, but I am not a part of that demographic. I felt a bit duped. That is something that should be prominently listed in either the title or description.

    "Brian Tracy is a genius"

    Brian Tracy speaks the truth without sugar coating it. He outlines the path to be a successful, virtuous person without wasting a sentence. I've read many of his books and they're all similar and all worth reading and re-reading. This one is short and especially to the point. Highly recommended.

    "Feel good & focus on your goal"

    This is the perfect feel good pep talk to listen to in one day to help you focus on your goal. It's not overly deep, but sometimes you need that boost even if it's telling you what you already know. Focus and keep trying and you can do it!

    "Short and Sweet"

    Even though it's shorter there is so much info to think about, but because it is concise and you don't have to wade through info to find a gem of knowledge. I loved it! A book to listen to again.

    "Mixed Bag"

    Some of the business tips such as writing specific goals are good but so much of the book is informed by an unquestioning acceptance of the myths of unfettered capitalism, meritocracy, and one's income determining one's personal value. I could see this advice giving people lots of stress and depression if they bought into the idea that they alone are responsible for their financial/business success. We are all part of a larger system, and we should not be perpetuating these myths of radical individualism. I believe the author has innocent motivations, but he's misguided in his framing.

    "ski Bandini "

    Unlike the title would lead you to believe, focus is not a focus of this book.

    If you have never read a business book and you cannot figure out how to make and achieve a goal, this is an awesome book. It is also great for a game of BS bingo. Otherwise you will be glad to have not wasted your time.

    To the credit of the author, he kept the book short with little redundancy.

    "Not religious? This book is."

    Made uncomfortable by early use of biblical quotation and "your Creator". This likely appeals to some, but not me.

    The author, however, is a dynamic speaker with a soothing voice.
