Out of the Park Again

I have read a number of S.J. Scott's books and can say that his advice is simple, down-to-Earth and immediately applicable. His book "Writing Habits Mastery" about mastering time and productivity for writing has helped my writing career specifically.
In contrast THIS book should help people to improve multiple categories of life.
The premise is that "Big doors swing on little hinges", meaning that small changes can produce life changing benefits. Rather than the narrow definition of success of researching, writing, or editing X number of words per day, S.J. includes checklists, benchmarks, and suggestions for SEVEN whole CATEGORIES of life:
Health and Physical FItness;
It's rare that I read a book in a single sitting. But I downloaded this at 5:00 am local time and am now writing this review at about 8:00. It's a page-turner and an eye-opener.
Best takeaway from the book: 5 minutes is enough to change your life if you decide to make a consistent habit of doing something purposeful daily with that five minutes. DO this in one category and you'll find it easy enough to add another. Try to "overhaul" your entire life with lofty goals and several big changes all at once and you'll likely fail.
Five stars, baby. Thanks S.J. for a perfect companion to Writing Habit Mastery.
