Shortly after Thanksgiving last year I found myself in a Starbucks Café with a steaming Americano on my table and seated next to a display of dark chocolate and merchandise. I had a 30-minute wait till my appointment arrived, so I began to page through the book titled, "5." It's a tool for planning your life five years out, filled with thought-provoking activities. Yet even when I ignored the exercises, I decided, it's a good, fun read!
I found the layout stimulating, the questions quite provocative, and the value high. So high, in fact, that I talked a Starbucks manager into ordering me a full case of these (50) for exclusive distribution to my client base.
They loved the book! I received dozens of notes from clients who dug into the exercises and were having a wonderful time discovering their future. A few confessed they had no energy to plan the future, but when they started reading the book they felt so inspired by the layout and the powerful questions that they found themselves engaged despite them selves.
I also had a lot of requests re: Where can I get a copy? Until very recently (end of month Jan 09) the book was not available except thru Starbucks, and they were sold out. I'm thrilled it's now available thru AZN.
My wife and I used two copies of this book to do our annual Planning Retreat, where we set aside an entire day to review the past year and then look ahead to the next. This book, 5, challenged us to look even further ahead.
It's not a breakthrough book, and it's filled with a lot of quotes and readings that self-improvement junkies will have already seen before.Read more ›

very well done book...
It's amazing to think that Julia Child went from cooking school to an Emmy winning TV chef in only four years. And that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos went from a 500 square foot apartment at age 30 to a net worth of $10 billion in just five years. It made me realize just how much can be accomplished in such a short span of time!
One of the things that I found particularly helpful was breaking out the various areas of my life into discrete categories, what he calls the "Wheel of Life" (e.g., family, career, health, travel relationships, etc.). Thinking about what I want to accomplish in each of these areas helped me formalize some thoughts that had just been floating around in my head.
Another part of the book that I found inspiring was the section titled, "Do It Now!" It really pushed me to start finding the time to really go after the things I want to do, but have procrastinated about. In the same way, the thought that you should not "go" through life, but instead "grow" through life was perfect, as it inspired me to try new things like reading the classics and breaking some bad habits that have bothered me for years.
If you want to really make the next five years of your life something you can enjoy and be proud of, do yourself a favor and read "Five". For those of you who like setting goals but don't always know how to go about achieving them, I recommend reading "Goal! Your 30 Day game Plan for Business & Career Success" Goal!: Your 30-Day Game Plan for Business and Career Success, since it helps you create a specific plan to achieve important goals.
