Based on the Japanese word 'Kaizen' which is translated as 'continuous improvement' and has been a philosophical torch for thousands of years in Japanese culture, Taylor pushes that concept a little further and instead defines Kaizen as continuous self-improvement. He hastens to remind us that 'continuous self-improvement' is "actually unachievable because you will never get to a point where you say 'I've achieved continuous self-improvement', because at that point, it would no longer be continuous." He stays with this lighthearted conversational approach throughout his book, using the example of our lives as cars! 'Look Under the Hood' delves into an examination of how the brain works, or, how we learn. 'Learning the Controls' studies how we think: 'The one great thing to also realize is that there is only one thing in the world that you have 100% complete unequivocal control over. And that, my friend, is the way you THINK.Read more ›
Carl takes a lot of big ideas and breaks them down into easy-to-read and easy-to-understand sections. Kaizen (The author's definition is 'continuous self improvement') is really a philosophy each motivated individual can apply to their lives.
The book gives a framework to understand our own thinking, the impact of thought and others in our lives and then looks forwards to what we want and the potential blocks we may come across and some strategies to overcome these.
Overall, Red Means Go! is a fabulous compact read that can change your life if you take action around the suggested steps. It may be a little simplistic for those further along their personal development journey, but should be a must read for anyone wanting to start living a more effective and purposeful life.
What amazes me is the fact that the book makes me realize everything. I know these things but I never know that there's a way to look at it in a better view. My work has given me a lot of stress and my point of view is to enjoy things after work. I don't care about sleeping late, not eating on time and things like that. I love the fact that it changes some of my perceptions in just a snap. It's more like an eye opener, some kind of a realization book. I have read some books like this before but I was never affected like this.
Every word has its meaning and is vital. There's no fluff and fillers. Everything can be digested and can affect one's life. As I was reading Chapter two and Three, I am really excited to finish the book to find out more. It was like reading a suspense book that you want to know who the killer is. The facts are presented in a way that can encourage people.
This is not just an ordinary book. It is a Take Action book that everyone should read. From start to end, you will definitely enjoy reading it. Though I want to point out some negative things about it, I can't think of any.Read more ›
