Publisher's Summary

Having trouble achieving your goals? The reason most people aren't successful is they fail to follow a day-by-day strategy. Instead they start each day, "hoping" they will have enough time to take action on their goals.

If you closely examine the world's most successful people you'd see they start each day in an energized state, ready to accomplish any goal. What's their secret? The *one thing* they do differently is they prioritize each day so the most important task is completed first. Put simply, successful people have morning routines that help them feel energized and ready to focus on their most important goal.

Start today: Live each day like it's your last

In Wake Up Successful you'll learn how to live every day like it's your last. No longer will you stumble out of bed and waste the first few hours. Instead, you'll learn how to start the day by creating energy and harnessing this power to focus on one breakthrough goal that will make a difference in your life.

A morning routine is simple and effective. It's easy to tailor to your unique circumstances and goals. And, best of all, it's tested. With this audiobook, you'll discover the proven strategies to help you get the most out of those precious first few hours.

    Story
    "A great way to start the day"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wake Up Successful to be better than the print version?

    I am an avid listener, it would be a bias answer to compare print and audio here.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The reflection provided here of how this impacts the author's day, helped me synergise my own experiences with his which allowed me to immerse myself in all that was being discussed, a great technique for absorbing the concepts.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Stone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to 2 of Matt Stones performances. His words flow as i believe the author wrote them, as the emotion and character seems to come through from all that is being said.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It wasn't my aim, but the book being less that 2 hours definitely enticed me to take on another short read.


    Any additional comments?

    I do a lot of reading, audio based and S.J. Scott's works are simple to comprehend, have a great flow, and have helped reinforce many of my current habits whilst providing insights to creative further expansion through useful tips and perspectives.

    "Practical Strategies"
    Where does Wake Up Successful rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook is very easy for a listener, and the author gives practical strategies to implement in everyday life. The suggestions to revamp your present routines are doable. I recommend this audio book for anyone who struggles with getting things done in a timely manner.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The parts that I like best were the practical strategies. I have implemented some of them and they have worked for me.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Stone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not listened to Matt Stone's other performances before, but he does a great job reading this book. His voice is soothing and smooth for a listener's ear. I am new to audio books, so I will look forward to hearing more of Matt Stone's readings.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Wake Up Successful?

    The insight that I apply from Wake Up Successful are some of the things that I have thought about over the years, but did not realize the reasoning behind the ideas. I have implemented some of the author's ideas and they have worked. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. He has great insight on productivity and getting things done in a timely manner. I feel better now that I have some strategies that actually work and are doable for me. I plan to have these strategies become habits for my everyday routines.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for anyone struggling with time management and demonstrate an inability to keep a routine. This author gives great strategies. I am looking forward to listening to his other books.

    "Excellent"

    This book was a quick read (well.... A quick listen) I thought it had so many great points and it made me excited to create a morning routine. Normally I'm running thru the house trying to not be late and almost every time I'm late! Why? I have no morning routine! This book gave me a plan! I'm ready to be on time and even early now!

    "Solid purchase."

    Really enjoyed listening the first time through while I exercise. I'm excited to listen to it again so I can begin practicing what I've learned. Only area for improvement is that at about 3 points in the reading there was a clear change in the narrater's voice/volume.

    "Useful tips and detailed explanation; narrator voice is soothing"

    S.J Scott provides you with a game plan, explanations/reasons why and useful tips. I will definitely read more books by him.

    If Matt Stone is the narrator I will also listen to other S.J Scott's and other authors. Matt's voice is easy on the ears.

    "Great motivator to avoid the snooze button!"
    If you could sum up Wake Up Successful in three words, what would they be?

    Empowering, truthful, motivating!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wake Up Successful?

    Some examples of activities you can do to become more successful where spot on. I felt like the author was speaking directly to me. I would tend to hit the snooze button each morning, but only because I was comfortable, lazy, or not motivated to get moving. After reading this book I am excited to plan my mornings more efficiently so I can accomplish goals and feel better about how I spend my day. Simple things can make a difference.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I felt like I could relate to the author. There were tasks mentioned that we all do everyday, that we HAVE to do everyday - those tasks are not overlooked. The author knows we still have to do our day-to-day things (like feeding pets, driving kids, etc). but he offers examples on how to accomplish the everyday tasks as well improve your personal growth.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I was able to listen in one sitting because of the length, but I found myself taking notes and rewinding to make sure I got the information jotted down. I will listen to again after I've tried some author suggestions.

    "Following's Scott's Advice"
    What did you love best about Wake Up Successful?

    In following through on Scott's advice in learning how to learn, in this case, figuring out how to establish a morning routine, I compiled all the audiobooks I could find on the topic. I thought this book was great in advising listeners to elucidate a clear set of minute to minute steps, and provides an example of his own (Chapter 11), from the type of face wash he uses (i.e., peppermint), to switching on a light to start. This is the strength of the audiobook. I found it more useful than Zoey McKay's audiobook, which instructed readers to feel energized and enthusiastic in the morning, which is fine with me in theory, but was offputting because that was what the bulk of the book was about. I found Scott's audiobook to be good on providing the individual level explanations (e.g., he steps on the scale each morning because he needs to stay in shape to train for a marathon), but not the primary components, or higher level explanations for why we should taken on a habit (e.g., why develop a habit focused on health). Though other authors fall short on this as well, I would also recommend listeners to try out R.L. Adams's Chasing that Frog. What I enjoyed about the latter was he gave a general blueprint for what components ought to be in one's morning routine. Adams still doesn't explain the "why", for instance, why one should have a spirituality component, but provides an interesting template for a well balanced life (or um, I mean, morning routine) from which one can build one's own program.
