Publisher's Summary

Each of us has but one life to live on this earth. What we do with it is our choice. Are we drifting through it as spectators, reacting to our circumstances when necessary and wondering just how we got to this point anyway? Or are we directing it, maximizing the joy and potential of every day, living with a purpose or mission in mind?

Too many of us are doing the former - and our lives are slipping away one day at a time. But what if we treated life like the gift that it is? What if we lived each day as though it was part of a bigger picture, a plan? That's what New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt and executive coach Daniel Harkavy show us how to do: to design a life with the end in mind, determining in advance the outcomes we desire and the path to get there. In this step-by-step guide, they share proven principles that help listeners create simple but effective life plans so that they can get from where they are now to where they really want to be - in every area of life.

Buy the physical book

It's hard to implement without it. The Online resources aren't enough and hard to find. If you do listen online be sure to visit website to get bonus workbook. Awesome content! If you are not an evangelical Christian you just have to get past some of the life plan examples. The idea is solid no matter your faith.

Great book but audio incomplete without print edition

If you buy this audio you would also need to buy the print edition the audio is not enough to understand or to create a life plan.

It is a great to kickstart your life back on the right track!!!!

Very Practical

Is an instructional book on how to approach life planning. The method is simple to follow. I recommend everyone who do not have a life plan to read. Go to the book website to download the life planning template as you learn. Great to listen together with your spouse.

A great companion to the printed version

I listened to this book while following along in the printed version with a highlighter.
Love that Michael and Daniel both read the book.
This book is not just life changing, it is legacy changing.

Probably better in hard copy

A understood this book to not only be an inspiration/ motivation piece for people interested in building a life plan, but also a structured handbook to guide through building a life plan. For that aspect, it would be best to have a hard copy to be able to use it as a reference and to allow for exploring chapters more freely.

you can't stay the same after living forward

this book was impossible to put down. as I challenge myself in my life this book took me over the edge and challenged me to the max. especially in the areas that I have been praying to be different. it's The life plan that I have been challenged to nail down. It's not as hard as it seems especially after reading this book!

Just a big pitch to buy their coaching, products

What disappointed you about Living Forward?

Just a big pitch to buy their coaching, products. Dripping with cheese factor.

What was most disappointing about Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy ’s story?

Cannot relate to them.

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy ’s performances?

No

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Maybe for some people, not for me.

Begin with the End in Mind on Steroids

This is such a detailed and comprehensive way to begin with the end in mind. It's big and specific. You can't get more motivating than big & specific. It's a short book since it is focused on wanting you to apply the concepts and create your own life plan.

Practical, but not inspiring

Would you listen to Living Forward again? Why?

I would recommend buying the hard copy of this book rather than the audio book because it can help you to actually write your life plan and perform the other excises in this book. Listening and then trying to remember how to do things is a little more difficult instead of just referring to a book page.

These guys are very practical and this book very well could change your life. However, I did find the stories in the book very uninspiring. Make sure you actually want to change your life completely and stop drifting before you tackle this book and actually do what the book tells you to do.

Would you recommend Living Forward to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend the hard copy of the book. I would not recommend the audio copy

What about Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy ’s performance did you like?

The performances were good. I like the authors performing the book as it made it feel more personal.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not particularly. This book was more informational.

Excellent read - highly recommend

Adds real perspective and provides practical insight into directing your life rather than 'drifting through it'. Read it!
