The book is well put together and is a very convincing mantra to be used when operating going forward. It could have been summed up a lot quicker and there are some sections that are a little too repetitive. Overall, a worthy investment of time and money.
Great book, and super insightful. Definitely learned a lot.
But...think it could have been summarized. After all, "Brevity is power" ;)
"Good ideas, but.. production poor."
The narration sounded like he was trying to 'act' his way through an informational book. His intentions were clear; he wants to entertain us, but it detracted from the text, and ultimately annoyed me.
Simple ideas are usually the best ones.
Don't separate chapters with music. It's the same musical interlude 24 times. Please don't.
No. The book contains valuable wisdom, but the production (narrator, music) annoyed me so much that I had to listen in stages.
Any audio book that includes graphics, graphs, figures etc, should come with a warning in the description. I've returned books before simply because I want to learn while listening, and would have bought the hard copy book if I need reference materials. "In figure nine, you'll see a blah blah blah..." This drives me crazy because, no, I DON'T see it.
"Best towards the end. Overall a great book"
It could have been short. Gets a little monotonous in the middle. The beggining is enlightening ofcourse. It gets really good and inspiring towards the end. I was considering not finishing the book in the middle. But really glad I finished it.
"Made me realize lot of things I was failing to do!"
Made me realize lot of things I was failing to do! I'm now more focused than ever, thanks
A great all-around self help book. Well told and easy to follow. The one thing is real and I highly recommend it.
Really good, simple insight to clarifying what makes forward movement happen in an efficient way !
"A classic in the making"
I believe that this book gives extremely valuable information for making significant change in your life.
Un libro que dibuja claramente el camino para la construcción de una vida próspera. la prosperidad incluye abundancia material, en salud física, mental, relaciones personales y familia. provee una guía que puede imprimirse para seguirla. explica por qué el multi tasking se torna ineficiente y un ladrón de efectividad.
extraordinary achievement that resonates with your inner feelings. it was always one thing and one thing only
I love the book. I finished it in 2 days. What's the one thing I can do to make everything else easier or unnecessary? I probably have to listen to the book on a regular basis when I get lost in the future.
"Really Hit Home"
Sometimes you just need a reminder of what's important in life, work and health. Middle was a bit drawn out but glad I listened to the end.
"Interesting, educational and a great listen!"
I found the audio edition much more engaging than reading a print version, it kept me interested from start to finish!
They kept me interested and made the stories flow nicely!
"A re-hash of the original '7 Habits' !"
It focuses on 'one thing'
Yes. Easy to listen to, although Claire Hamilton's accent is a little too 'Cheesy American' for this Englishman.
Probably not. But possible.
This is a rather shameless duplication and re-hash of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. If you have read '7 Habits' then it's an OK revision of the principles, stated slightly differently. If you haven't. forget this and read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' by Dr Stephen Covey. It is much better.
They refer to several studies and findings from other books on the same subjects, but in the audiobook they don't refer to the studies or credit other authors. Whereas 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg addresses this subtopic of the power of Habits in much more detail and complete with properly referenced source material.
Perhaps I should nick a bit from all the authors I have read and re-publish it under a catchy name!
"5 out 5"
This is my 5 question system for appraising business and management books. It isn't perfect but it works for me, I hope you find it useful...
Have I incorporated in my business or how I run my business any learnings from this book? Yes.Did feel I wa nted to understand really understand the book in depth, make notes and apply the content? Yes.Is it a book I’ve gone back to in order to check I really get the ideas and concepts so I can apply them? Yes.Is it a book I keep to hand on my mobile, where space is at a premium, so I can re-listen as and when? Yes.Finally, is it a book that has brought insights and moved me forward? Yes.Comments...Stick with it - I found it was literally 2 hrs in before it really got going. I have changed my goal setting system based on insights from this book. The narration is a touch irritating and the "musac" jingle but don't that put you off.
Like many other books, you just need to find that one golden nugget that will make it worth your while. This book has a few hidden treasures inside. Highly recommend it!
A truly excellent book with brilliant ideas for better productivity, a must-read. You won't be disappointed.
No words to describe how amazing and life changing this book is ! Worth dozen of listenings
"inspiring to think differently"
this book, recommended by a colleague has definitely made me think and question how I think and live my life.
"Learn how to set your priority!"
Explains how to focus and set your priority and gives you examples to start you thinking along the right path!
This book made me cringe from the outset with cheesy management and platitudes. Big Goals, Big Question, Mastery is a path not a destination. To get the right answers ask the right questions......uurgh
"Your one thing can be many things"
My favourite thing about this book is that your compelled to find your large goal.
