Review

"Personal success does not have to be years away. Jinny Ditzler masterfully guides you from thought to action and inspires you to start actualizing your heart's desires this year."
John Gray, author of MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS

"Whether you're a harried homemaker or a confused corporate executive, YOUR BEST YEAR YET! offers a clearly defined, easily implemented and profoundly effective method for getting your life back on track. Forget New Year's Resolutions… read this instead."
Dr. Tony Alessandra, author of THE PLATINUM
RULE and CHARISMA

From the Back Cover

Your Best Year Yet is the perfect handbook to help people realise their goals in 12 months. Jinny Ditzler has almost two decades of experience with the Best Year Yet programme. Her results are inspiring; in this clear-cut guide anyone can set aside three hours of their time and transform their life.

Your Best Year Yet asks you challenging questions about your expectations, accomplishments and goals for the future. It is not until you take time to sit down and really think about what you want out of the next year that you can start working towards your goals.

Ditzler asks us to outline our accomplishments, disappointments, limitations, personal values, goals, our roles in life and shows us how to develop our own programme to achieving our goals and learning from our mistakes.

Format: Paperback
In exactly the way the author claims, this book has really helped me improve my life over the last 12 months. The strength of this book is its powerful simplicity. Many of the ideas, suggestions and techniques can be found elsewhere in many other popular self-help writings, but Jinny Ditzler's approach inspires action almost effortlessly. Compared to other similar books, it is almost impossible to read this without making at least one or two of her lists which then empowers you to make positive life changes.
A criticism might be that it is fairly basic stuff that we know already, but answering the various lists of questions here brings new clarity and confidence about what is going on, or not going on, in one's life. Parts one and two are preparation for "the ten best year yet questions" in part three. These are basically all about looking honestly at your life, seeing clearly what works and what doesn't, then setting clear and specific goals in different areas over the next 12 months.
If, like me, you are someone who loves reading these kind of books but finds that it often seems to take rather a lot of hard work to put the ideas into practice, I recommend Your Best Year Yet! Inevitably I did not achieve some of my goals for the last 12 months, but the considerable improvements I did make (plus increased clarity about goals for the future) were partly due to getting a realistic focus from this book.

If like me you are one of those people who have lots of big ideas but can't seem to get going, this book will make sure you get off your back side and do something about it. It is structured according to lists and written plans, not just a pie in the sky dream list. The "Best Year Yet" plan ensures that you have scrutinised those areas of your life that really need attention. It helps you determine your priorities and provides you with tools to make sure you get things done. I had complete faith in the author. She drops in anecdotes from her life, and from the lives of her clients (she runs BYY seminars) so that you feel you are not alone. We are real people, with real problems and obstacles to overcome. Jinny has written an excellent self-help book. I read it in one sitting and have been inspired to write my own BYY plans. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

Format: Paperback
Based on 10 straightforward and well-explained questions, Your Best Year Yet! takes you through the process of planning a clear and meaningful one-page plan for your year ahead.

I've found this book hugely useful over the last few years and am quite sure that I've managed to make more of my goals come true, simply by using the tools offered to clarify and prioritise.

All the write-ups say that you can complete the Best Year Yet process in 3-4 hours. I have to admit that it usually takes me a little longer than that (although not massively longer). It probably just depends on how much time you like to take thinking ideas through.

The 10 sections of the book take you through a review of the previous year, including what you accomplished, what you were disappointed by and what you learned from it. Then they move on to some self-knowledge questions about how you limit yourself, what your personal values are and what roles you play in your life. And once you've gathered all your ideas about your past year and your inner self, you step into the planning and prioritising stage.

So... if you're up for some well-thought-through planning and effective prioritising for the year ahead, this book will give you great structure and support.

Format: Paperback
I liked this book for the excitement that the process of working out my goals and priorities created for me. I originally started the process in August and by December I had made some very good progress. It is motivating and clear to have the 1 page 'best year yet' plan.
The one significant flaw for me was the rather hopeful promise that it was possible to have a plan for the year put together in just three hours. I don't believe it would be possible to do such a plan that wouldn't need significant revision somewhere further along the line.
Overall I feel this is a good book, however I find that I needed about a week to do the plan properly. Also I needed to bolster the content with other texts concerning goal setting for me to be able to put a considered plan together.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was given this book for my birthday and as a busy working mum I found it very pleasantly indulgent. Yes, it says take 3 hours, but I could never find 3 uninterrupted hours so I did it in bed for half an hour last thing, at the hairdressers etc. It allowed me to get off the hamster wheel and think about me and what I want to do and achieve. Dipping in and out of it did not affect the result and prolonged what I found to be a pleasant experience.

I still got the result I wanted. The "What is limiting me?" question has relased me from what was and I am happier now than before. I am on Amazon to buy a copy for a friend.

Format: Paperback
The author suggests it is possible to complete the goal setting program over a continuous three hour period. If you've done it before then certainly, but this first time reader spent 1-2 hours every day, doing a chapter a day to get the damn thing finished. And I'm not a particularly slow study.
As a way of separating your real priorities from you 'shoulds', it is an excellent and very fine filter. But regardless of whether you have actually got your primary role and top 10 goals set for the year ahead, it's still up to you to DO something about them, and that's always where the big challenge has been for 'self help' readers.
