To sum up, this book may benefit the novice seeking an initial kick up the backside but for more experienced productivity geeks, perhaps it's not as motivating as expected.
I was not dissapointed. The book is a concise and fairly well-written guide on how to use a '30 Day Goal Machine' to supercharge your goals. This was essentially a case of using a simple notebook as a journal in order to record your wants, ideas, strategies and achievements throughout the process of a 30 Day goal. The type of goal you set can be for anything over the 30 day period. Of course, you have to be realistic about what you can achieve in that given perod. For instance, you are probablynot going to make a million in 30 days (unless you are some super-whizzkid speculator or something!) However, if you are aiming for that as long term business goal, then the author's point is that you can use the 30 Day Goal Machine to make a significant dent in it. The whole book is written around this premise, with some useful tips on questions you can pose to yourself in your journal as well as some good case studies to illustrate the usefulness of the process.
I think the book could benefit from summaries at the end of each chapter, as well as a list of the actions you could take at the conclusion to assist in refreshing the memory. Apart from this (and some typos!), this is a good little e-book and worth the 77p price.
I like the idea so much, I've incorporated the journal into my latest 30 Day Challenge. I look forward to the results!
Do not get obsessed with the length of the book or the small number of typos. This modest investment really delivers because it delivers basics with a gritty realism of somebody who is facing the same obstacles as you.
This is not, in my opinion a beginner's book even though it is straightforward and clear. I believe it takes the great work of others and condenses it into an action plan. Smart goals are mentioned but the acronym is not even analysed as the author assumes pre-knowledge. Wheareas the likes of Brian Tracy Goals!: How to Get Everything You Want - Faster Than You Ever Thought Possiblewill offer a more comprehensive arsenal of strategies and Robert Kelsey Get Things Done: What Stops Smart People Achieving More and How You Can Change is good at offering the emotional support and thinking processes this is simplified and easy to focus on quick start stuff. As a coach, I know that some of these bigger works will never get read, so this author wins hands down in the real world for his type of audience. The author attributes Tom Monaghan's success to a yellow legal pad that goes with him everywhere and some readers might prefer the internet approach, with tools such as Evernote, as favoured by S.J. Scott To-Do List Makeover: A Simple Guide to Getting the Important Things Done
I have been, for some years now, setting a list of objectives for the next month and experienced the pleasure of some achievements and frustration that some things just kept getting postponed. The author encouraged me to ask myself some questions in a self-coaching sort of way. I am already due to meet a mentor next month which meant unsurprisingly that in preparation for my meeting my results were already improving. With asking more questions I sat down and upgraded 15 of my usual 30 list to include stretching and far-reaching bite-size objectives that rose above mere list ticking. He also made me reach for my journal in a way that only a handful of authors do. He has a no waffle way of connecting at a direct and persuasive level. He reminded me of the power of ensuring what I don't want as I am fairly contented and don't have a desire for pointless shiny things. In fairness, I have heavily customised and modified some of his strategies, so I think that some readers who are already well read will be able to release some already absorbed knowledge by putting it into practice a slice at a time.
I have tried over the years to write my goals down and when I was reading them the other day I found it was not goals I was writing but taking down notes to help me to set goals.
Since reading this great book I have now started to write my goals down, asking my self the questions you talk about and over the last few days have started to implement small steps to achieve my goal..
Thank you for a great read and understanding to setting Goals I can not wait to see the follow on book in the workbook form..Thank you and great writing.
