Format: Paperback
This highly practical book seeks to motivate readers to raise the quality of their personal and business lives. By focussing on - and changing - bad habits, setting ourselves goals, and identifying our true purpose, we can achieve success and fulfillment.
This is not a book to be read once and then shelved; there is just so much to absorb. Each of the 10 chapters describes an important life strategy, followed by an exercise to promote its implementation. Advice and anecdotes are plentiful. Perhaps not as readible as the "7 Habits...", but nevertheless a worthy complement to it.

This is a fabulous and enlightening book. Full of great exercises to complete as you read through the book which will help you to focus on where you are now and where you want to be. Without direction, we often head nowhere, this book helps you gain clarification of your intended destination and identify a map to get you there! I would recommend it for any self development bookshelf.

I am a businessman running a small computer company where I am facing a high workload and a lot of stress. I found this book a few years ago.
It gives a very thorough guide to how to get your life in the direction that you wish, while - what's really important - maintaining a balanced life. If you are a person with high ambitions, but feel that you do not have the time necessary to accomplish your goals, this book suggests a very simple daily checklist you can use to maintain the balance. It encourages you to develop clarity in what's important, to make a habit out of improving your habits, and suggests how you can develop your own inspiring guidelines. After reading the book, I have worked a lot to adapt the excellent ideas to my own life, and it has really been worth the effort!

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By M. P. D. Wheatley on 9 Nov. 2008
Format: Paperback
I am not a big self-development book buyer.

To be quite frank, if you read too many of these type of books it can become confusing and many of them are re-working earlier works like Think and Grow Rich.

This book is one of the best self-development books I have come across. It is easy to read and gets you thinking, involving the reader in the exercises. The point they made about behaviour being 80% habitual struck a cord. Also that by writing down your bad habits and doing the opposite was a simple concept but very powerful.

This defiantly worth having if you want to take stock of your situation and build a new plan for your life.

Format: Paperback
For me this is the best self help book ever. Not only does it tell how to focus but actually helps you to do so. Some self help books state the obvious this guides you through how to set objectives and then focus on making it happen. I will recommend it anyone who like me finds it hard to focus on one thing.

I am a big fan of Jack Canfield's work, i think he is brilliant, and this is another book in a long list of great ones. It is well structured, easy to read, and full of inspirational stories. Moreover it's enjoyable, useful, and most importantly practical, the advice given can be used by anyone whatever their situation. This is one book im going to be re-reading this summer, and for anyone who is unsure, I would highly advocate buying this book, its worth every penny.

Format: Paperback
Long ago when I was a child, I purchased a large box of Crackerjacks and the prize within was a small plastic magnifying glass. I recall using it to burn holes in leaves which demonstrated the power of focus. I thought about that as I read this book. Here is one of its core concepts: "Negative habits breed negative consequences. Successful habits create positive rewards." I agree. However, as the authors fully understand, replacing negative habits with successful habits is very difficult. A sincere and sustained commitment is imperative. However, as the authors of this volume correctly point out, something else is also needed: focus. "You must invest most of your time every week doing what you do best, and let others do what they do best....When you focus most of your time and energy doing the brilliant things you are truly brilliant at, you eventually reap big rewards." Within organizations, this is the essence of alignment: getting the right people in the right places, doing what they do best to achieve whatever the organization's goals may be.
Canfield, Hansen, and Hewitt recommend and then explain ten different strategies to develop and sustain successful habits, focus on strengths, see "The Big Picture," balance career with personal life, build excellent relationships with others, eliminate (or at least significantly reduce) fear and anxiety, ask for what you want (the authors provide a seven-point system to achieve prosperity), sustain consistent persistence, take decisive and appropriate action, and finally, how to simplify one's life without compromising one's purposes. A set of specific "Action Steps" is provided at the end of each chapter.
