Imagine what life would be like if you started every morning with small actions that created a chain reaction of positive benefits throughout your life. You eat a healthy breakfast, have a great conversation with your loved ones, and then begin your workday focusing on the important tasks. Then, throughout the day, you complete other habits that positively impact your top goals. I guarantee you'd feel more fulfilled, get more accomplished, and have a better direction for your career.

I purchased S.J.Scotts first version of this book and was able to use many of his ideas
This book is a big step forward with more specific helpful ideas and plans to organize and accomplish goals.
I recommend it for anyone who struggles with too much to do, too little time, who needs a blueprint to help guide priorities and outcomes.
This has helped me feel better about my daily to do list and not feel overwhelmed.

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

I would have purchased it anyway!

You know those subtle tricks your coworkers are all guilty of? The constant nodding, pretend concentration, useless rhetorical questions? These tricks make them seem like they know what they're doing when in fact they have no clue. This behavior is so ingrained, so subtle, and so often mistaken for true intelligence that identifying it, calling it out, or compiling it into an exhaustive digest has never been attempted. Until now.

I recognized every meeting I've ever been to. The author has made it impossible for me to sit through another meeting without smirking or laughing out loud at the gamesmanship.

Do you struggle with completing projects or specific tasks? We'd all like to get things done and become more productive. But what often happens is we put off important tasks and let them slip through the cracks. The end result? We get overwhelmed by the amount of things to do. In other words, "procrastination" causes you to feel stressed when you're not completing tasks in a systematic manner.

The book is easy to listen to and has so many great thoughts that I downloaded the PDF the author includes.
I started putting the methods and ideas to use before I even finished the book.
I am especially grateful for the accompanying study materials.

This book will motivate you to start, continue, and maintain your diet and/or fitness program. As a motivational coach, Dr. Lyn has assisted people with weight management for over two decades. She doesn't give you a specific diet or exercise program to follow; there are plenty of those already out there. Instead, she will solve a problem millions of people face everyday: the inability to stick with a diet and/or exercise program. Motivation is the key factor in the success of any change program.

As a prior reviewer said, it sounds like she is just reading her thesis. Consequently it is riddled with abbreviations, too technical information and is not easily applicable to ones own life and situations.
As a small point, she also has difficulty pronouncing the very words she has written. Her narration then becomes a distraction as she struggles with her OWN words.
Don't bother!!

Are you surrounded by messes and clutter? Do you want the clarity of mind that comes from a clean and tidy home? Do you ever feel like you would be so much more productive if your life was a little less cluttered and a little more organized? You can do more than just "tidy up" your house. When everything in your home is in its right place and your home is spotlessly clean, you get a sense of accomplishment, and your home will be welcoming to you at the end of a long day at work or to your guests when you have a party at home.
