This review is from: Focal Point - A Proven System to Simplify Your Life, Double Your Productivity, and Achieve All Your Goals (Paperback)
The book is concerned with the use of the 80/20 principle and related ideas for increasing productivity, simplicity and achieving goals in all areas of life.
Chapter 1 is a nice overview of the FOCAL POINT method.
Chapter 2 explains the use of 80/20 time management for improving productivity, much in the style of Covey.
Chapter 3 explains the use of 80/20 elimination for simplifying one's life.
Chapter 4 deals with importance of theory for getting results, much like Napoleon Hill's "think and grow rich"
Chapter 5 explains the FOCAL POINT process of strategic thinking, which is then applied in the next seven chapter
The first four chapters in the second half of the book deal with the basic part at the bottom of the Maslow hierarchy of needs.
Chapter 6 career
Chapter 7 family
Chapter 8 personal finance
Chapter 9 health
The next three chapters deals with the upper part of the hierarchy and how to move upwards.
Chapter 10 research/improvement
Chapter 11 community/politics
Chapter 12 spirituality
All in all this is an excellent book. It sets out to do exactly what is says, which is to describe a system for achieving productivity and simplicity in all aspects of life, resulting in inner peace and happiness. I bought the book when it was released in 2002 and have been using it as a personal guide ever since. I cannot recommend it hightly enough. Brilliant.
