Format: Paperback
The Power of Goals is a pithy gold mine of good news for the frustrated procrastinator in all of us. Most of us resist setting goals because of our fear of failure and our frustrating experience with broken resolutions every new year. This book gives you faith in yourself to set goals, strength to challenge yourself to new heighths, and the courage to see your goals through to completion.
The format is easily digestible. It's a great book to take along to the waiting room when you have your oil changed or you're waiting to see your next client. You can read as many pages as time allows, but you can't read just one!
This book not only shares the wisdom of successful people who challenged themselves through the power of setting goals, this book also motivates the reader to persevere through those tough obstacles that we all encounter. More than just sage advice, the book contains the lessons of life learned by other people who discovered the power of goals and accomplished their dreams.
If anyone has every procrastinated about setting goals to improve their lives, this book will inspire you beyond your fear of failure. It provides the "staying-power" to follow through the short-term obstacles to reach your long-term achievements.
This is an excellent book to read with your morning coffee. It provides an enthusiastic approach to start the day.

I love quotes, especially motivational and philosophical quotes, and I am a big believer in setting, striving for, achieving, and re-setting goals. I was very excited when I discovered this book as I figured it was a 'can't miss.' Despite all the indicators pointing towards a five-star experience, this book missed the mark in a few key ways.

The positive aspects of the book were its size, and the great mix of authors/contributors of the quotes (e.g., writers, businessmen, politicians, philosophers, professional athletes, military leaders). However, the positives were overcome by the negatives. First, the introduction said there were over three hundred quotes, but I counted only two hundred ninety-seven. Next, one quote from Henrik Ibsen contained a careless misspelling ("stealing" vice "steeling"), and another quote completely got the author's/contributor's name wrong: "Frank Victor" instead of "Viktor Frankl." With these obvious inattention to detail errors, I now question the accuracy of all the other quotes. Lastly, and most importantly, too many quotes were not related to goals. While most of those non-goals-related quotes were still good, they distracted from all the other good goals-related quotes, and they belong in other quote collections.

If the author’s goal was a good, accurate collection of quotes related to goals, she came up way short. As a quote lover and collector, it pains me to give a quote book, especially one with a title that gave me such high hopes, so few stars, but, unfortunately, the author gave me no other choice.
