What would you focus on if you were no longer weighed down by your unwanted responsibilities? If you want to add something meaningful to your life, like traveling to exotic places, composing beautiful music, or experiencing a new friendship in a foreign language, you will need to figure out how to eliminate other things from your daily routine.

Dover covers various areas of life and provides tips and suggests approaches on how to minimalize things, people and work from your life. Because so many areas were covered, he gave general suggestions and discussed what has worked for him. I was able to take a few tips from the book and found that there were other areas I couldn't quite relate to; however, we all are different and I get that the book was from his point of view. I do wish he would have spent more time in certain areas, but overall it was worth the listen. I was able to take away a few ideas to work with.

This book was about inspiring change in others in your organization. I was looking more for something on inspiring change within myself. If you're looking for ideas on how to inspire change in others, then this might be a listen for you. If you're looking for a way to inspire change within yourself, you might want to look at other titles.

I absolutely loved the way Mel delivered her book. It was as if she was talking directly to you and not reading at all. She is high energy and upbeat. However, I agree with other reviews in that the continual list of affirmations on how the concept works got to feel a little repetitive by the end of the book. I very much enjoyed the book and her humor in the beginning, but after continual stories of how it worked for other individuals, it started to wear on me and I couldn't wait to just be done. I forced myself to finish it as I probably could have quit before the last 2 chapters. I did love her delivery though.

I found the concept interesting and have tried to implement it myself and while at times I force myself to do something after the countdown (which is what you're supposed to do), I often find I've talked myself out of it before I've even gotten to 1. Maybe I need less of a countdown as she suggested in one portion of the book. I will continue to keep trying.

What I found most useful was her information on the effects of the snooze button. That information alone is enough to get me to think twice before hitting the snooze or going back to bed after I've gotten up, no countdown needed. Keeping that information in mind allows me to talk myself into staying up.

What did you love best about 10% Happier?
I loved the humor and stories Dan Harris tells in his book. Dan Harris is a fabulous narrator and is so easy to listen to! He kept my attention throughout and I listened intently to every minute of the book. I will definitely be listening to this book again.
