The main premise of this book is the idea that slow and steady wins the race. It is very helpful the way Darren reminds us that even ridiculously small changes can, if applied CONSISTENTLY, produce huge effects over time. He also reminds us of the power in taking responsibility for our own actions, and that if we want to "manage" something, we must first "measure" it. I also love the idea of putting success on "autopilot" through establishing good habits.
There are a million books out there in this space. I should know, I've read most of them! But this is one of a handful that I think belongs on everyone's bookshelf, at least everyone who is interested in personal development and improvement. You can't go wrong with this one.
Things I could have lived without: the blatant self-promotion by the author (I mean...the last page of the book is asking you to buy 5 more copies of his book...yuck), all the name dropping and references to his own magazine, comparisons to the author's own awesome life constantly, and the useless visuals and "informative" charts. I also feel like a lot of it was very repetitive, and what he said in 200 pages, he could have said in about half that.
I’m 28 years old and work as a quality engineer for an aerospace company. I think i can say I’m on the right track career wise but I’ve always had this dream of being an entrepreneur since i was 23. This book really motivated me to take a step further towards my dream and do something! Stop day dreaming and take an action if you don’t want an ordinary routine and life.
I wake up 4:30 am three times a week to hit the gym, make my bed every morning, don’t eat junk food and etc why?? To improve my discipline cause as Darren mentions in his book... it’s all about discipline which he learned from his dad.
I don’t know if the author reads the reviews but I don’t know how to say Thank you Darren milion times for changing my life.
