Simply amazing advice. Lots of great advice the way he explains and give information is easy to understand and actually apply right away to your own life.
It's overall a 3star book. Too much repeat...and fluff. The productivity section is entirely regurgitation of productivity books. It is honestly disappointing to see so much repetition from other books. There are hardly any new ideas here on productivity.
Nope. In fact this book could have been half of what it currently is. The entire book can be summarized into two questions - Focusing question and Supporting question.
This is the TOP 3 books.
The MESSAGE was Clear and Concise. Goes straight to the point and doesn't waste anytime treating you like an idiot. Narration clear and wording made this as a listening experience very pleasant. Did not want to turn it off. Even my kids enjoyed listening to it. Simple and Elegant plan for making the path to going for what you want easier and motivating. Should be taught in schools.
I LOVED IT. Got me off my butt and I restarted my life after being "Stuck".
You will not regret listening to this book and you will begin to use it as a way to get out of the MUDDLE of life. Even if you have kids! Something to teach them as well.
"5 out 5"
This is my 5 question system for appraising business and management books. It isn't perfect but it works for me, I hope you find it useful...
Have I incorporated in my business or how I run my business any learnings from this book? Yes.Did feel I wa nted to understand really understand the book in depth, make notes and apply the content? Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.
"Interesting, educational and a great listen!"
I found the audio edition much more engaging than reading a print version, it kept me interested from start to finish!
They kept me interested and made the stories flow nicely!
"A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !"
It focuses on 'one thing'
Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.
Probably not. But possible.
This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.
They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.
Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!
"Makes you focus on what's important"
Worth a listen. It can seem simplistic on refraction but the message is correct , you can only do thing well at any time!
"My favorite book"
I would say it's one of the best books.
Don't think it's comparable just think the other books are wasted compared to this one.
I felt like this is the only book I ever need to listen to. Simplify everything other books makes complicated
Would listen to this book again and again and again and again.....
This book made me cringe from the outset with cheesy management and platitudes. Big Goals, Big Question, Mastery is a path not a destination. To get the right answers ask the right questions......uurgh
"inspiring to think differently"
this book, recommended by a colleague has definitely made me think and question how I think and live my life.
What most people need.
Teaching how focus on the most important thing that will make you successful and to get your priorities right. Great book
Great insights and entertaining too. I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it. Looking forward to applying its techniques now.
I found the author's personal experience more inspiring than most of the anecdotes. Worth the listen. Worth every penny spent
