Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mick Ukleja and Robert Lorber have written an excellent book in all respects: clear and direct writing, solid organization that builds to a practical crescendo, meaningful and plentiful examples that make the authors' concepts real, and a values-based foundation that weaves conceptual material with application seamlessly. The book is designed to help readers change their own lives, and the positive energy of the authors that jumps from the pages will entice readers to apply this work to their own life spaces. One gets a personal took kit along with the book: Four Dimensional Thinking, SMART planning, the Johari Window, and the 48-Hour Personal Retreat can be applied to each of our lives. This is truly a book from which one gets as much as one chooses. And for those who want to take responsibility for a journey of success and happiness, Mick Ukleja and Robert Lorber provide a process that will help us learn who we are and what we want. Taking the actual steps is on our plates!

Format: Hardcover
I want to tell you how important "Who Are You and What Do You Want?" was to me. I own a successful commercial printing company and after 17 years I wanted to try something different. I started a new company last year and because of the lead talent in this new firm the prospects for quick success were high. But after nine months of slow progress, struggles, and having no real sense of where I should now direct this company, I pulled together my advisory board and we all started to ask some very tough questions. The consensus was that we needed to start over, regroup, and come up with a solid plan. Even though we had pressing deadlines and some current opportunities, we had to stop chasing random leads and spend time sharpening our saw.

But I didn't know how to sharpen a saw -- or if the saw was the problem. I needed help so I started to scan the current business books on Amazon and found this book. What got me to buy was the title, and the emphasis on learning how to plan your life and/or business around your personal strengths. I've read many business books over the years and some of the concepts in this book I'm familiar with -- but what is new is the way the worksheets and questionnaires combine a person's personality traits with "What Do You Want?" This was unique, clarifying, and amazing. They even have you do a time-line of your entire life -- all successes, failures, lost loves, etc... This was scary, fun, depressing, hopeful, melancholy, embarrassing, and the best. This exercise helps you identify patterns of mistakes and successes.

As of this writing, I'm three quarters of the way in finishing my business plan for my new company: Project time-lines, measurable goals, 90/10 rule, using my strengths and getting talented help for other jobs, etc...

Although it's an exceedingly rare event, every once in a while you'll have the good fortune to encounter a book that in just a few pages can change your life forever. Who Are You and What Do You Want? by Mick Ukleja and Robert Lorber is one such book. Using a new approach called Four-Dimensional Thinking, the authors lay out a system for helping readers get in tune with their TRUE life goals (NOT the ones that someone else has defined for them), and then creating a plan that will enable them to achieve these goals. I especially like the last chapter -- Your 48-Hour Personal Retreat. The chapter guides you through the process of Four-Dimensional Thinking, using a series of particularly insightful exercises. Long story short, this book provides a no-nonsense, back-to-the-basics approach to bringing out your very best, and achieving success on YOUR terms. The authors have poured their hearts into this book, and it really shows. I personally can't wait to put it to work in my own life! Highly recommended.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Kathleen A. Lacey on September 1, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I first read this book awhile ago, and found it provided me with a very concrete process through which I could step back from my life and reevaluate all of the priorities that had gotten lost in the daily grind. It is so important to take that opportunity and challenge yourself to reflect on the four steps outlined in the book, ie. :who are you and what do you want" and "where are you and why are you here", etc.

Most importantly, though, is the experience that I had from rereading the book during my convalescence from a significant spinal surgery. The book was vitally important to reassess where I am now in my life. This book can be read and reread many times, I am sure, and each time would provide an amazing opportunity for personal growth and reflection.

I strongly recommend it!!!!!!

Format: Hardcover
This book is designed to help readers change their own lives, and the authors provide concepts and approaches that can be applied every day. The values-based foundation connects principles with application through excellent examples from the actual experience of a diverse set of individuals. Mick Ukleja and Robert Lorber offer readers many useful tools, such as Four Dimensional Thinking, SMART planning, the Johari Window, and the 48-Hour Personal Retreat, that can help each of us identify our true core values and fundamental goals. This book is driven by thought-provoking questions - who are you, where are you, what will you do, and who are your allies - that enable readers to recognize their talents and passions in order to take control of the future as well as responsibility for a journey of success and happiness. In this well-written, clear, and direct book, the authors challenge us to realize the best of our lives and to overcome the hurdles we face along the way.
