3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly motivational, with a few truly useful gems, August 6, 2010
This review is from: The Best Year of Your Life: Dream It, Plan It, Live It (Paperback)
Length:: 2:45 Mins

I'm always on the prowl for ways to improve my annual planning session--tools, tips and tricks as well as inspiring ideas and new ways of looking at trenchant problems. While this book boasts three outstanding tools for getting more out of your life (they're the ideas in chapters 9, 10 & 11), it falls down in the structure department. For my money, a far better goal-planning book is Your Best Year Yet!: Ten Questions for Making the Next Twelve Months Your Most Successful Ever, by Ginny Ditzler, which also came out of years of workshops, coaching and the author's own self-as-guinea-pig experiments. Please feel free to leave (thoughtful) rebuttals, addenda and comments, especially if they'll help me make these video reviews more helpful and less wordy.

Colleen, I hopped over here from your newsletter mention. I love the way you are experimenting with video in different ways. I have read Debbie's book and find your take on the pros and cons pretty accurate. I look forward to seeing more of you on video! ;)

Colleen - I really enjoyed your honest review of this book. Like me, you appear to "buy books to be used as tools", vs. casual entertainment. You were persuasive enough to have me go look at Ginny Ditzler's book.... which I am going now...........thanks!

Nothing like high jacking somebody else's reviews to push your own project. Very tacky on your part.

"Nothing like high jacking somebody else's reviews to push your own project."

Agreed. I reviewed one book, and mentioned someone else's book that I preferred, by way of context.

I, on the other hand, appreciate alternative recommendations. It's a great way to see everything that's out there before making a purchasing decision. Thank you for the video, it was very helpful.
