Top Customer Reviews
If you read this book and put in the work by doing the exercises (even if they feel uncomfortable or awkward to you), you'll be better off for it.
By teaching you simple questions to ask yourself and through short case studies and real-world examples from the authors' executive coaching work, this book helps you figure out how to focus on the most important things to help get you started and making progress towards getting what you want.
As the authors say, "This isn't another book on how to be more productive, and we're not going to ask you to do the same things that you've tried before, such as... working later... waking up earlier."
The focus of the book is around working through their Five Stages of Momentum and answering questions to help get you thinking of how you can make actual progress quickly to get things started when they are not going the way you want (or are stuck and not going anywhere at all):
Stage 1: Motivation - What do I want to be known for?
Stage 2: Mentors - Whom can I learn from?
Stage 3: Milestones - What are three subprojects I can complete?
Stage 4: Monitor - What positive things are happening that I can acknowledge?
Stage 5: Modify - What one change can I make to keep moving forward?
My biggest complaint, and it's not a serious problem, is that there is an insane number of numbered lists in the book. I found the numbering of headings and multiple nested numbered lists to be confusing and thought they didn't help the great coaching advice the book contains. Once you ignore the numbers and just read the words, it all makes sense.
