I have been reading motivational and "self help" books of all kinds for more than 40 years. Some are good and some not so good. I put Dennis Houchin's latest book squarely on top of the good stack. Many of the concepts presented in this book are not new, we may heard them before, but never have I seen them corralled in such a nice neat package. Due to its clear, concise, step by step , no fluff roadmap to accomplishment it earns it's name "The Achievement Protocol". Follow it, as the author himself did, and you will achieve your dreams. --D. Corkery
The Achievement Protocol is a priceless gift. A Treasure of Truth that shows you, step-by-step, that you can pursue your passion and make it an integral part of your life. It is a clearly detailed map that teaches you that living out the life you love most is well within your capability to achieve. --O. Coto
Dennis has written a remarkable book. If you have some idea of what you want out of your life, this manual will give you concrete steps to help you achieve it. I've been a fan of books like Getting Things Done for years, and I still learned something new from this book that will help me achieve my goals more effectively. --A. Fisher

Leave it to an IT Professional to name “Achievement” a “Protocol”. I personally have known Dennis for close to 7 years. Who would know him better than I with Dennis being my support/manager as the Chief Information Officer of a company we previously both worked for?
A gracious thank you to Dennis for writing this book: My seeds are planted and excited about the rewards I will reap as I actively nurture what I have sowed.
After my first read of The Achievement Protocol, I observed the basis for much of what he actually set into motion over the course of his tenure. The charts and lists that covered his workspace wall at our place of business, became to me a visual reference for a process he had refined and made useful to keep projects on track and with better results than might have come from a less organized approach.
As a project manager, I have had many opportunities to engage his services for solutions to the IT component of new business opportunities. I can say that incorporating the Task to Vision spectrum that forms the content of the book, I will better manage those aspects of my future assignments in order to be more confident that without his input, I will still have his formula for achievement. To those that hope to lead project teams, it would be helpful to fully understand the relationship between “seeing the big picture” and breaking it down to bite size tasks.
The book is a quick read that should be revisited again and again as you build your future.
