The author shows her readers how to write their own "lifescript" by putting their goals down on paper. This guide is not about time management or making out lists of things to do; rather, writing it down is about clearing your head, identifying what you want and setting out your intentions.

Amazon Review

Time and time again we are told that we live in a society that is drifting and lacking in direction. But the growth in mind, body and spirit media shows that 21st-century man/woman desires mental, spiritual and physical harmony. Henriette Anne Klauser's Write It Down, Make It Happen shows you how to "write your own lifescript"; it is a "taking control of your life" kind of book. It doesn't guarantee that by writing down your goals you will necessarily attain them, but it does show you how to put your house in order.

Using case studies and writing exercises, Dr Klauser illustrates how people's lives can change just by being able to identify what they want, and where they want to be in the future. In one of her early examples she cites Jim "The Grinch" Carrey, who as an impoverished actor wrote a cheque to himself for 10 million dollars and carried it around with him for years. Now an A-list Hollywood movie star, Carrey commands circa 20 million dollars per film: his dream has come true.

Not all of Klauser's case studies are in the fairy-tale realm. She also cites day-to-day stories--men and women whose lives improved after they started to write down/identify what their goals were--to move house, change career or go travelling. This is the crux of Dr Klauser's book; it is about working out what you want and structuring your life to make those goals attainable or as close to attainable as possible.

Write It Down, Make It Happen is a very American book, and if you can work past some of the Oprah-type case studies, Klauser's message is clear: be proactive--take control of your life, and dreams can come true. --Aruna Vasudevan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of a Paperchase-aholic 29 Sep 2010
My womanly passion for shoes is almost outweighed by my writer's love of notebooks. Never mind the fact that I actually write my books on a computer, my office (actually the whole house!) is full of beautiful notebooks, most containing only a few jottings. I always hope wistfully that not only will I write wonderful prose in my notebooks, but that my handwriting will be sufficiently legible to allow others to appreciate it.

The obsession with notebooks was partly fostered by Henriette Anne Klauser, author of Write it Down, Make it Happen. The idea is that by externalising your wishes, you create a mechanism for bringing your wishes to you. According to the blurb on the back cover, it's not an abstract theory, but based on evidence. For several years, I have been writing down that I am a best-seller (not made it yet, but give me time!). That said, I have found it an enjoyable and thought provoking read. I certainly support that argument that if you let it be known what you want you are more likely to achieve it because (not making the bestseller lists apart - but maybe How to Get Top Marks ... will achieve that!) I have found that on a number of occasions and against all the odds, I have written down my goals and wishes and they did materialise. So write it down - you might make it happen for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars No nonsense guide to sorting out your life 12 Feb 2001
By A Customer
I am usually very wary of self-help books, but this is more a practical guide to getting what you want by focussing on your goals and clearing your mind of clutter. Excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Write it Down, make it happen! 20 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a bad book, but I'm finding now there are quite a few of these books out and very similar in reading, to the extent that they are actually quoting each other. If you've read a few of these books, this one isn't really saying anything that wasn't said in The Secret or E2 or the Law of Attraction.
