This book is great! I'm so motivated to become disciplined in everything I do. I truly feel like this book will aid in making me become the most effective and influential person that I can be. Get it!!
Our society is caught up in looking for the fast and easy way out of, into, or around everything rather than putting in the hard work and effort necessary to do things right. Everyone is looking for the “easy” button for life. As I read the principles and techniques that Rory presents – and especially as I began to put the techniques into practice – I realized that this IS the easy button! We can keep doing the same old thing which will just prolong and magnify our problems (making our life even more difficult), or we can follow these steps and our life will get much easier and we will finally achieve the success and happiness we seek. In Rory’s own words, “… the short term difficult leads to the long term easy.” This book is definitely a must read!
The first book I read in the, personal development department. Gives motivation and practical advice to help set and achieve goals. Highly recommend!
I think so many of us know what we should do but just don't. We justify or explain away why we "can't" accomplish things or why it just won't work. 99% is baloney and the other 1% can be creatively worked around, through, over, or under. This book lays bare what is need ed to be done no matter what goals you may have. Very motivating and a great kick in the pants.
Rory's straight talk can guide you to success in any area of your life. This is a must read!
This book is a classic and I am confident will help thousands reach their goals. I know it has helped me. In addition to providing step-by-step practical and usable techniques and strategies to help readers better manage their time and goals, the first-person stories were incredibly compelling and inspiring, and the core message propelled me into taking immediate action to improve the quality of my life.
As I read through Rory's book, I am constantly underlining everything I want to remember so the pages are all marked up. This is a great read for everyone who has ever yearned for success in life and wondered why it always seems just out of your grasp.
