I believe that GOAL!
David and Cynthia Weinberg
What I really liked was that I could start doing this as I was reading the book - I didn't have to wait until I had finished the book to get started.
Sandra Martinez
Having read a lot of books that are meant to help you tackle a big goal, I was a bit skeptical about GOAL!, but found it an easy read.

"GOAL! helped me develop a workable plan to tackle a really important goal that I had been wanting to do for years. That goal was something that meant a lot to me, but I couldn't figure out how to get started. GOAL! showed me how to create an action plan and then lots of motivational tools along the way that kept me working on the goal until I finished it. If you have a difficult goal that you have wanted to go after for a long time, I highly recommend this book. I had been thinking about my goal for 3 years and it feels good to have finally accomplished it. "

I expected more from this book, especially since all 23 of the previous reviewers gave it 5 stars. It is a short book (about 150 pages). The second half of the book is a day by day "journal" for the reader to document his/her progress toward his/her goals. That doesn't leave a lot of room for the experts to share their knowledge. On top of that, there are many success stories that simply don't resonate with me. Thus, I got very little out of this book. However, there are many other books about goals that I have found useful. If you are interested in a book that is more substantial, take a look at Brian Tracy or Orna W. Drawas.

The book's cover says "30-day game plan for success". I didn't think I would accomplish my goal in 30 days but I knew the book was probably a great primer. It turned out to be the complete solution for reaching my goal. It's simple, straightforward and geared toward taking action. My issue has been procrastinating and I jumped to that section. What I read in that part sustained me every time I had the desire to quit. The book has a built-in accountability piece and who doesn't need that? I followed the book's 30 day goal track, which was eerily in step with what I needed at specific points in time. I've read many goal books but this one stands out in its directness, simplicity and it's motivational components that make your goal seem doable. Having completed a goal that was in my head for many years, I am now on to something even more challenging. What I learned in this book gives me the confidence that I can tackle future goals. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Goal is divided into two parts. Part I is about defining your goal, creating a roadmap for success and putting you in the right mindset. There is a chapter called "Maintain Momentum" which is dedicated to helping you overcome barriers to success. This resonated very strongly with me. It discusses "fear of failure", "procrastination" "discouragement" even "plateaus" and provides practical advice on how to overcome them all. The book has a "maintain momentum list" that details the main reasons why people give up on their goal. The list gives you a few sentences on each barrier to help you overcome them. For example, under "Procrastination" it has quick remedies for overcoming lack of desire, dealing with hard projects, not feeling in the mood, overcoming fatigue, overcoming distractions, etc. I carried this list with me and I can tell you firsthand that it worked. Part II of GOAL is the "30 Day Goal Track". You start this part when you are already working towards your goal. You do one a day - it's either a written exercise or an inspirational story. Once I got past day 21 I knew I was home free. The 30 day goal track is fun and I never knew what to expect - which I liked. The key is to get you in the habit of working towards your goal. The book is a quick read and is packed with everything you need to keep you going until you reach your goal.
Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In
Another great book is "Getting to Yes". This book is a classic and the most effective way to learn how to negotiate. I used it in meetings and in my personal life. We all negotiate and this books teaches you how to nail it.

After several years of reading motivational books that got me all fired up but didn't tell me what to actually "do" towards reaching my important goal, I bought "GOAL! Your 30 Day Game Plan for Business and Career Success". It's a short book, about 140 pages in all, but what it had to say made a big difference in me achieving a long-standing goal.

What sets this book apart from other motivational books is how practical in nature it is. Yes, there is certainly a philosophical component to it, but that is backed up with a lot of practical guidance that resonated with me. And the book is very interactive in nature. For example, right from the start, I was required to write down my goal in very specific terms and then to write my motivations for why this goal was important to me. For the first time in many years of thinking about my goal, I was compelled to examine my motivations around why the goal was important to me and what negative thoughts I had that had been preventing me from achieving my goal. When I replaced these negative thoughts with correspondingly positive thoughts, I had mentally "cleared the way" to see my goal as achievable.

GOAL! did a good job of helping me overcome obstacles like procrastination and hitting plateaus during the course of working toward my goal. There were a number of great stories about people like Richard Branson and Anderson Cooper who overcame huge hurdles to success.

There was also a section of the book devoted to 30 days of exercises that helped keep me on track and moving towards my goal. The exercises only took about 5-10 minutes to do, but they served a useful purpose in that they had me thinking about my goal from the standpoint of already having achieved it.
