Excellent book!

An excellent book about a very important subject. In a way, it's a book about "art of living", because, if you want to live a full life and fulfill your dreams, you need discipline.

Brilliant book..

I like this book. I have already listened to it twice. It is most effective when it is used actively. It is also a good reference and reminder when old habits start creeping back in.

Very easy to listen

Very easy to listen and put into use. Listen it and then ACT, one small step at a time. Best tool I've seen for getting out of inertia and into action for overcoming laziness.

Some good insights

It had some good insights as to how we look at things. Hard to listen sometimes. Found my mind wandering and thinking of other stuff, not book related, instead of actually listening words.

Excellent ideas!

I think the lessons are excellent ideas and should be a help to anyone looking to develop and build strong habits. I haven't used the workbook yet, so my review is less than complete because I don't believe that you can get a great feel for the lessons without the implemention of those ideas into your everyday life
