From the Back Cover
The Circle Blueprint is a book about thriving. As the authors explain, thriving is unrelated to material success. Of course we need money to support our lives, but excess wealth does not add to life satisfaction. Security, peace, and success are not tied to increased financial wealth. The Circle Blueprint reveals how to make your life shine, to thrive, to live a life of purpose and meaning. It is your right to wake up every day saying: "Wow, my life is amazing." Discover what it takes to radiate joy, power, and peace every moment of every day for the rest of your life. It is your right to thrive.
Once you master The Circle: an individual map of life choices that shape the quality, satisfaction, and impact of your life, you will find contentment. We all long to live meaningful lives; The Circle helps to guide you on a life-long fulfilling and satisfying track. Based on the authors' proprietary, scientifically validated assessment, The Circle Blueprint clearly shows you how to evaluate the current size, quality, and balance of your unique circle.
To help you better understand where you are on your personal journey, the psychometric self-assessment is designed to bring forward your latent dispositional and enduring personality traits as they pertain to the concepts and elements of your circle. You will understand the way you are wired on the inside and how to best align with the world around you.
Throughout the book, the authors explore the various options for expanding and improving your circle, and include specific exercises that will assist you in making clear and compelling changes in your life in order to unlock your ability to thrive. They also refer you to a series of supplemental workbooks that offer many more exercises to help you master the four key developmental areas explored in The Circle Blueprint.
This book is your starting point for tapping into a proven system created and designed to move you forward on a journey to true contentment in your life. It introduces and explains both the concepts and the key elements required to sustain you on your way.
Discover Your Unique Circle to Find Fulfillment and Achieve Greatness in Business and in Life
"In my years coaching, I've seen plenty of talented basketball players, but the ones that sustain greatness are more than just great basketball players. I tell my team that learning to manage yourself is just as important as being a great ball player; that the best athletes live in their power by consistently executing ALL their skills and improving each day. They rise above the rest because they know who they are, they understand their goals, and they never get sidelined by failure or carried away in their success.
The Circle Blueprint really captures the essence of finding balance between independence, power, humility, and purpose. It teaches you how to take these crucial elementsthe ones that can take your performance from 'good' to 'amazing'and develop them for your specific goals. The assessment shows you what you need to work on. The tools in this book can help you achieve these objectives both on the court and off. If you want to really see how far you can go, read The Circle Blueprint right now."

"To get a great job, it used to be enough to graduate from a great school. No longer. Today's organizations require leaders that thrive, and that means impressive degrees aren't enough. To be a great leader at any level you must be an authentic and balanced 'whole person.' In a deeply competitive global marketplace, being responsible for a company's most valuable assetsits employeesrequires an incredibly honed skill set. The Circle Blueprint lays out a path to becoming a productive, successful, emotionally intelligent human being in the workplace, at home, and in the community. It's a new day and Jack Skeen, Greg Miller, and Aaron Hill have written a book that equips us to thrive in it."

The book lays out the a clear approach towards fulfilling potential in a unique, but simple and logical way. I tend to spend less time thinking about how the different aspects of circle (that the author lays out) relate to each and contribute to effectiveness. The book also does a great job of showing how the different areas of our lives effect each other and provides interesting perspective on how and why we spend our time as we do. This part was particularly interesting to me since so much of my actives are driven by habits and not things we actively think about.
There is a interactive/online component which is straightforward and helpful as there were a few areas where my personal assessment were actually different then reality. I think it provided more honest feedback and a more realistic assessment of some blindspots that I can improve on.
The book and approach were very unique and helpful. The combination of the feedback and individual approach to improvement was incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend.
What I appreciate most about this book is the balance it finds in offering broad perspective as well as practical simplicity. That is to say, readers can learn and expand their thinking with it, but also refine and fine-tune their personal and professional approaches in life.
More specifically, the circle concept has helped me to recognise areas of balance and also lack of balance in my life. As a hands-on, adoring father of three daughters, in the college phase of their lives, an entrepreneur launching and building a business with my partner, a committed partner in a loving relationship, and a passionate singer-songwriter, to mention a few of the principle areas of focus in my life, it is easy for things to go out of balance. In reading through the book, once again, I recognised that I have de-prioritised, at the moment, my musical pursuits, and that is not something I do not want to do, as music is a real calling for me. This is just one example, of course, and I could list others if I did not want to keep this review brief! The book helps me to course correct, and not only to understand where the imbalance arises, but why it is arising.
I am most grateful to Jack, and his co-authors, for writing this book, and I have recommended it and personally gifted copies to various people in my circle. I encourage you to get a copy and see how you can learn and grow from the insights it offers.
