Book Description

Achieve Anything in Just One Year equips readers with the tools to:
  • Be Truly Committed. Don't just go through the motions - act like you're making a promise to your company, or to your best friend.

  • Be Specific. A resolution like "I want to lose weight" is easier to ignore than "I want to lose five pounds by March."

  • Set a Deadline. A time-frame equals commitment and helps quantify success.

  • Avoid Overwhelming Yourself. You may want to lose weight, quit smoking, achieve moderation with Martinis and cut up your credit cards all at once, but let's get real. Focus on a limited set of goals and plan on taking stock mid-year.

  • Change One Thing at a Time. Recognize that change is hard. Wait to achieve one goal before starting on the next.

  • Be Realistic. Taking charge of a fitness regimen is a realistic goal, while exercising seven days a week may not be. Don't set yourself up for disappointment with lofty goals.

The idea is to take daily action that creates a ripple effect in your life.

By transforming your life with small steps, you can stay motivated, focused and balanced..Best of all, you will feel happier about pursuing your personal success.

ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR by Jason Harvey, a certified life
coach, certainly has an interesting premise; i.e., whether it would be possible
to accomplish such a task.

I'm not sure that's the case; however, the book's subtitle was much more
realistic: BE INSPIRED DAILY TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS AND ACHIEVE
YOUR GOALS . . . and the author did just that with his collection
of 365 ideas, each supported by a relevant quote and a mini-assignment.

Some had me shaking my head in agreement and thinking that I wished
I followed the advice more often . . . for example:

* "Always write angry letters to your enemies. Never mail
them."--James Fallows

Your assignment today is to add this tactic to your list of remedies
for anger. Give it a try if the opportunity presents itself sometime during
the day. Just remember never to send that letter, because if you do, you'll
have a lot of cleaning up to do later. Hurt feelings take a very long time
to mend.

Others had me focusing on what I could accomplish in any one day . . . for
instance:

* "Whatever you can do, or dream you can begin it. Boldness has
genius, power and magic in it."--Goethe

Your assignment today is to look at some of your dreams. Pick one. What can you do
to boldly go in the direction of that dream? Is there a clear and distinct move you can make
today that will start to hurl you toward that goal? Would it really be so scary? What first step
can you take in faith? The result may be magical.

And, lastly, there were quotes that had me laughing--such as this one that was
followed by an excellent recommendation:

* "When your mother is mad and asks you, `Do I look stupid?

3.0 out of 5 stars a general inspiration book July 8, 2010
Format:Paperback
I really liked the forward of this book. The author speaks of how when we are young, we picture a certain life and now that we are adults, we are often not where we pictured ourselves. This spoke to me and I eagerly looked forward to reading the book.

Every morning you read a page and follow the instructions to achieve your dreamed goal. You'll need a notebook and pen to keep a diary, writing down your dreams and aspirations. Much soul searching, time and energy is required by this book and to some, it might become just one more thing to have to do in a day which is the opposite of what the author intended. Personally, I was lost when asked to write down the color of my soul. I sat there thinking way too long on that one and I don't have the time to be so existential first thing in the morning. Things like this lead me to skip a day here and there and then forced me to play catch up. Since I am only two months in, I am not sure I will be able to complete a full year in the manner intended.

The author makes sure to note that no goal is too silly or superficial. We should write down our dream and by taking heed of the daily motivation, follow the path to our dream. Quotes are provided for further inspiration. The author does provide compelling and inspiring words to help the reader but a lot of it is "if you really try, you can get whatever you want - nothing is beyond your reach." I find the author's message to be positive and uplifting but not realistic; sometimes a dream cannot be achieved no matter how hard you try. Just ask anyone with a serious illness.

The author provides direction for the reader but no details or specific steps. One day I was instructed to think about my partnerships. The theme of the day was "together we can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivating and Inspiring... March 1, 2010
Format:Paperback
I read a lot of these type of books and hoped I would find something new and more interesting in this one than the last few I have read. I found lots of new ideas and felt inspired right from the beginning. The author is so good and knows how to hold your attention.

You are supposed to read a page a day, but it was so interesting that I kept reading until I finished the whole book. But that's okay, because now I plan on going back and reading one page a day and do any exercises he advises you to do. Example: write down your dreams and see what you can do to head in the direction of that dream. All you need is a notebook to go with this book. I found the inspiring words by famous people at the top of each page really nice and they will make you stop and think.

He also gives great examples and you will find yourself comparing it to yourself or to people you know. Like those who sit around talking and planning constantly but never going into action or accomplishing anything. You don't have to have great ambitions to enjoy this book because even if you want to accomplish small things, it will help you get started. Small starts sometimes produce great results though so who knows what will happen then.

I wondered if I would find my biggest fault in there somewhere and I did. I am a loner but seem to collect people. If I walk down the road, I come home with all the dogs in the neighborhood following me. I didn't object to the dogs, but then people started following also, wanting to be friends, taking up my time, etc. Well, the author says I need to "get over myself". OK, ok. I'll try to be friendlier and stop hiding. (I didn't realize I had so many faults until I started reading this book.) But don't worry, he has great suggestions for making you "get over yourself".

A great book, well written and very inspiring and motivating. Something new on every page and so easy to absorb since it's laid out as a day by day plan.
