Publisher's Summary

A lot of times, when people think about success, they immediately start to think about their goals. They look at their life and start to measure their accomplishments. I then ask these people, of their goals, how many they would say they accomplish in a year or month. In most cases, they have set goals but they have no idea of the steps or work it takes to accomplish them. I tell you, although we set goals, the outcome we desire is a specific set of results.

Let's look at the big picture: the reason why we set goals is because we would like an immediate result, so instead of focusing on the goal, let's focus on the result we want. To me, when I hear the word "goal," I mainly think of wishful thinking. I have no idea how to make this goal a reality, and I know plenty of people who work hard and don't get the result they wanted. Is it possible that, in the process of working toward that goal, they lost sight of the result intended? Or is it possible that they didn't plan the necessary steps to reach the goal/result?

Good information

Short and to the point. He says most goals are just wishes without any action or plan of action.

Dumb

This will be a return, regardless of the price. The narrator was dull and the information was infantile and lacked substance.

Odd, Pointless Listen

This is just not that great. Focusing on results instead of goals is still goal setting. For a 38 minute book, he spent 10 minutes talking about coupon clipping and self control....enough said.

Straight to the point.

This book gives you the meat and potatoes of what you need to do to accomplish the things you want.

Not the Robert Greene I expected

I've read and enjoyed other books by this author. I found this one shallow and scattered in contrast to his other works.

Pretty basic stuff

Maybe be useful to some that are less motivated. I don’t why a review requires a certain amount of words like an essay...

Only comment is GREAT... Simple advice , easy to understand ,it will required commitment and will power to follow though but if you do that ,you will be successful even when you fail, because as many fails you got ,more experience as you take advantage of the learning of your own fails.
