The book has helped me to think about those few critical tasks that would add the most value to achieving results. You can control your actions but not your results, but you stand a good chance of achieving your target if you complete the tasks on your 12 week plan.
You need to think about what it is you really what to achieve from life that is what are you life/business goals. Visualise those goals. And align your weekly tasks to your long term goals. In short spend time doing those tasks that will help achieve your goals.
Think hard about your goals. Visualise them. Write them down. Keep them to hand. Then set about planning the tasks or tactics required to achieve them.
An easy book to read, you can complete over weekend.
Really feels a well structured and complete book, not a half stepped book where the author gives you some ideas and leaves you to it
