Great audiobook/ possibly better than the kindle

I enjoy the kindle version of this book and was excited to see the audiobook version come out as well (the kindle version has been out for several weeks). While I usually buy either the audio or the kindle version of a book, this is one of the exceptions where it might make sense to own both. I like to read 'a thought a day' books on various topics, but I generally start a bunch of them, and only keep up with a very few. I like the audiobook as it allows me to quickly listen to today's thought while I'm driving into work. I like having the kindle version as well, as there have been a few times where I wanted to highlight something, and while you can do that in the audiobook, I never find those bookmarks useful, whereas I reference the kindle ones often. All in all, a great book. It's pretty straightforward, if you are looking for a 'thought a day' type of book, and are interested in the topic of self-discipline, this is a great choice.

Excellent

As with all audio books this is not a one time listen, to use the resources within you must be willing to listen multiple times and always refer back to specific areas of the book that benefit you the most, I found the tools here to be significant

Boring and useless

This just isn’t what it claims to be. You might as well find a bunch of self help quotes and read them to yourself daily.

Wish I'd had the self discipline not to get this

Just a series of poorly written homespun, obvious, cliches. I was looking forward to this for long car journeys and the like. Should've known better.

The last straw was day was week 10, 64. I was getting ready to congratulate myself on having the discipline to resist my better judgement for so long when he quoted Ben Carson, yes that Ben Carson. Some nonsense about describing challenges in life as hurdles rather than obstacles, because, you know, obstacles are hard to get past, while hurdles, well, aren't or something.

My self help tip, save yourself the cash or credit, and go and ask the nearest grown-up you like and respect. You might not get great wisdom, or searing intellect, but neither will you be patronised or conned by meaningless rubbish.

That was painful!

Sorry, but there is no profound content here. 365 bits of borrowed advice from existing & some outdated philosophies. Basic concepts like ‘delay gratification’, ‘exercise your will power muscle’. Some of it is arguably bad advice; ‘live your life the hard way’, ‘give up certain pleasures’, ‘torture yourself with cold showers to toughen up’. This type of self discipline is not sustainable nor enjoyable. The content is painfully repetitive & at times contradictory. The narrator was equally painful & sounds like a scripted news reporter. Written by a male, left brain dominant, linear thinking author. May suit similar minded readers who resonate with this type of combat style self-discipline boot camp, but not for people who are more creative & lateral thinking.

One of the best

This was great to listen to. Straight to the point without stretching out info which can be boring.
Simple and understanding points about self discipline. Any one trying to make a change with their lifestyle I believe this will help if applied. The narrator done a great job as well
