Publisher's Summary

As the personal development expert Brian Tracy says, you have two choices in life: you can either work on your own goals, or you can work for someone else and help them achieve their goals.

Did you know that only a small percentage of the population has clearly written goals that they work on every day? These are the people who end up achieving the most in life.

You've probably reached the point where you realize that setting goals might be beneficial and I'm here to tell you that you're entirely right. You are also wondering how to set goals effectively.

You're now just one click away from making the decision to set goals for yourself. Setting goals is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life, and it can bring immense satisfaction. So start setting goals today. I promise you won't regret it!

What this book will do for you:

  • Give you the opportunity to discover and set goals that matter to you
  • Teach you how to set short-term and long-term goals in all areas of your life.
  • Help you realize your potential and achieve more than you thought possible.
  • Provide you with an effective strategy to achieve your goals.
  • Enable you to overcome the obstacles that you'll encounter while working towards your goals.

    "Discover goals you didn't even know you had!"
    Would you listen to Goal Setting again? Why?

    I think so. There are some gems in this book!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I really like the Goal Setting exercises. I discovered a few goals I didn't on a conscious level know I wanted to achieve. Hey! I was impressed with that which gave me new focus as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I like all the reminders of what positive self talk can do for you!!!

    "Solid, consise review of effective goal setting"
    Any additional comments?

    There's nothing new in this book, but it's a well-organized summary of best practices for setting appropriate goals and achieving them. There's also a useful workbook on the authors site that you download for additional help. I liked the short length, sometimes I feel that authors pad out and repeat information just to make the book longer, but this got to the point. The biggest weakness I saw is the lack of pointers to others' work who may have covered some of the newer or more novel ideas first or in more detail. Would have been nice to give credit to those who did that work and it would give listeners ideas of where to look for more information if they want to explore that idea in more depth, for example, the deliberate practice section. The material itself was maybe just shy of 4 stars in my view, but appropriate length and excellent narration pushed it up to 4.

    "Informative, well-written, and motivational"

    This was a really good book, filled with lots of good advice for making and achieving goals. I think my favorite bit of advice, paraphrased, was that you should think of your goals and think each day what you could do to that day to bring yourself closer to achieving that goal, then do it. Because that is what goal achievement is: doing something each day to bring yourself closer to the end goal. I got a lot out of this book, and it was perfect for reading right before the new year. It is short (about two hours), but well-written so that you can get a lot of information out of it. I listened to the Audible audio edition narrated by Meral Matthews, and I really liked his narration. His voice is very clear and he reads at a good speed. If you are interested in really achieving your goals, this is a great little book to get you motivated.

    "Fantastic Synthesis of Information"

    Thibaut has created a fantastic piece for goal setting. I read quite a bit of personal development books and more than a few "fluff" the book with a lot of empty rhetoric while keeping the tent pole ideas spaced out. Even the greats do this.

    However, Thibaut has taken the concept of goal setting and broken it down into core components and theories that are fundamental to success and productivity.

    Very much recommend it.

    "Surprisingly Great!"
    Would you listen to Goal Setting again? Why?

    I've listened to it twice and plan on listening to it at least one more time, but the reader isn't all that great.


    Any additional comments?

    This was really one of the best books I've read on Goal Setting and I've read about three of them. One thing I don't agree with however, is the book that he recommends on Self Esteem by Nathianal Brandon. A better book on the subject is called "Breaking The Chains of Low Self Esteem" as well as "Self Esteem: Fast Proven Treatment" by Alison. Also he mentions that goals should not be fueled by fear... well if that's the case then should one not have a Savings? Isn't that fueled by fear? What about conservative financial investments isn't that motivated by fear? Overall, an excellent book that I highly recommend.

    "One of my favorite purchases"
    Any additional comments?

    I’ve read many goal books over the years and most were pretty good but yours stands out from all the others and here is why. Where most books seem to focus on theory, and cheerleading, your goal setting book has practical ideas and instructions to follow. Sharing your personal experiences and advice gave me just the right amount of information and motivation to start working on my goal plan. <br/><br/>Most books take you on a journey and talk about the wonderful paths of having goals, your book not only shows me the path but starts me down it, so I know I’m taking the right steps.<br/><br/>I was so impressed with your book and excited about it, I’ve been reading and listening to it over and over. I told my son about it and he went out and bought the audiobook. I also bought your habit and productivity books. Now when is that productivity book going to have an audiobook version so I can listen and learn from that as well?<br/>

    "Conscise; pulls no punches; not a hand-holder"

    Worth hearing. Easy to listen to. He cut the extraneous fat out and is serious about his advice. Competent person. He's not playin'.

    "short sweet and to the point"

    "Goal Setting" would make a good "precursor" to the book, "Think and Grow Rich" Which the author cites.

    "Good material"

    Having ended last year with Jim Rohn’s audiobook on Goal Setting, I was delighted to listen to Thibaut Meurisse’s audiobook, Goal Setting. It was a good follow-up and was more practical than inspirational. It's short, full of useful information, and easy to follow.

    I thought it was well-researched. The ideas weren’t particularly novel, but it was arranged in a way to make the ideas accessible. My only negative was that the author included too many quotes from other self-help gurus, which distracted me because I kept stopping to look for their work. (Is that good or bad? Who knows?! :-) )

    Overall, however, it was a good book, and I would read other material from him. Good job, Mr. Meurisse. I've accomplished one of my small goals so far. Kudos! :-)

    *I received this audiobook as a gift from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.*
