A self-help manual on creating reasonable, achievable improvement in your life. In our attempts to overachieve, many people find themselves frustrated because they cannot relish in their own successes. Though these professionals may reach their goals of job titles and financial stability, they often sacrifice their personal and family lives and discover deep dissatisfaction. In Change One Thing self-help author Sue Hadfield outlines the necessary steps to address the disillusionment that has become a common problem in our work-driven society. While whirlwind change can be overwhelming and unrealistic for a modern worker with a family and responsibilities, Hadfield asserts that a determined person can bring about an impactful change in his life by simply altering one aspect of it. Change One Thing teaches readers to avoid emotions of hopelessness and panic associated with changing too many aspects at once. Hadfield details a step-by-step plan to make a meaningful change and shares real-life examples of people who successfully altered their lives. Those who recognize that professional success is less fulfilling than other facets of their lives will find comfort and guidance in Change One Thing as they embark on missions to improve their lives.
What disappointed you about Change One Thing?
It was superficial and made sweeping generalisations. I was perhaps looking for a little more specific advice backed up by concrete examples. I think there are much better books on similar subjects than this one.
Would you ever listen to anything by Sue Hadfield again?
How could the performance have been better?
It was delivered in a way that seemed a bit patronising. That might have been due to the content.
