Those aren't bad ideas, though from a personal standpoint, there were various instances in my life where I've actually tried most, if not all of these techniques and although it gave me something nice to fantasize about, in the end, usually, nothing ever came of it. On the other hand, there were instances where I didn't write anything down, but just went ahead and did it and achieved my goals faster than if I just wrote everything down on paper (I bet the trees were happier, too ;-)). Go figure. By the way... these weren't "small goals" either. This is why I was glad when the author mentioned that your goals must be reasonable. Most self help experts really beat that statement of "You can do whatever it is your heart desires." or "you can achieve anything you want" to death, which is why I was also glad when the author mentions how you should focus on your strengths.Read more ›
Self-help books rarely accomplish what Le Blanc is able to do in ACHIEVING OBJECTIVES MADE EASY! For starters, he does give his readers easy ways to set goals, manage time, and be more successful in their professional and private lives. In short, by accomplishing his own goal to offer practical tools and techniques, he helps us to make our lives more than simply manageable but more meaningful.
Le Blanc has clearly accomplished this in his own life, and nothing is more inspiring than knowing an author practices what he preaches. Presenting us with simple ways to help balance our days, select priorities, and have plans of action, he offers a platter upon which we can place our clutter, eliminate energy drainage and avoid the pitfalls of procrastination. Ultimately, he empowers us with motivation, the motivation we all need to be successful.
In the fast-paced rat race of 21st century life, Le Blanc offers building blocks to living with less stress, thereby increasing the potential for us to be more spiritual, while improving our finances, as well as our professional and personal relationships. He provides not only techniques but wisdom. Most importantly, perhaps, he gives us hope that dreams can be realized! Bravo! A real contribution!

I was surprised when my 21 year old daughter handed me this book and said, "Read it, Dad!" And I did because she's in college and never has time to read anything other than her text books! So her recommendation meant a lot to me! I have always had goals that I never could attain or something changed in my life and my priorities changed, derailing my progress. This really helped me start small and celebrate my achievements. I'm not moving mountains - yet! But I do have a plan now that I have the right idea and the tools to do it! Thanks Raymond Le Blanc!
