Tough to Finish Ironically

I liked a lot of the tactics in the book, however the narrator was simply painful to listen to. It sounded almost like a computer reading it back to me.

Productivity 101

Meh, more of a primer course for people with poorly developed organisational skills or understanding of what it takes to be productive.

If you're just starting out on a quest to find out why you struggle to get anywhere, this is a good place to start. If you want a deep dive, this is not the answer.

Exactly what I needed after wasted hours and effort trying to learn how to manifest

This is a roadmap for success and happiness and if I only use half of it I will still have profited greatly and I feel once again in control. Thank you for writing this,

There's a lot of good sense in this book

This is a short book of just under 3 hours - but it doesn't carry any dead weight. The book is very much focused on providing ideas and suggestions and practical tips for finishing what you start. If you pulled all of the ideas out, they'd probably amount to about 30 practical suggestions. I've implemented a couple of them. I've felt that my laziness/inertia is intractable - but in fact it's not. It's just a series of poor habits and ignorance about how I work, and what works for me. This book goes a long way to helping you get to know yourself, and identifying what (from the selection offered) can move you forward in achieving your goals and objectives. I listened to the book 3 times, and each time I heard something new.

Great book/audible.

Covers essential aspects: how people fail and succeed. How people can recovery after initial
failures if they know about themselves and their projects better, etc.

Basically a guy reading dictionary definitions.

This book was utterly aweful. Not only was it just regurgitated content but it read like a high school students take on discipline if he was just trying to get through the class.

It consists of the author saying a key word like "self discipline". Then reading what may as well be a dictionary definition of the word.. then he may list some more connected definitions before reciting the worst attempt at a story to demonstrate the concept.

Literally Sally wanted to start a buisness but she didnt work hard. working hard is defined as hard work. hard is toughness. its helpful to be tough. being tough could have led sally to success but she wasnt tough so she didnt have success. Success is defined as a lack of toughness leading to failure. Some of the key causes of failure are -lack of toughness, not working hard.... and so on for hours straight.

Absolute trash.
