The book's tone strikes an appealing balance between self-affirmation and swagger in encouraging a "No Excuses" way of life. One of the best parts is the call to action in Winning Way #10. I appreciated that the book is visually appealing, with short sections, exercises, visual cues and good editing. Although cliches are used, the author "keeps it real" as he likes to say with concrete examples from personal and professional experiences and concise actionable advice.
The No Excuse Guide to Success is for everyone (even those who are happy with the level of success they have already achieved). It was not only inspirational but also had some great reminders in there of things we know we should do but often don't. Jim Smith Jr writes in a very easy conversational voice that makes you feel like you are discussing things with a friend over coffee.
The type of book that you buy and reread many times. I have also put it on my gift giving list for graduates. You are never too young to learn how to create your own success in life. Thanks Jim!
Shocking truth #1: Don't read this book - unless you want success!
Shocking truth #2: Why? Because some of the news is not good. Smith makes sure to show you in no uncertain terms how YOU are responsible, accountable, and in charge of your own success. Forget about excuses, finger-pointing, blame, and psycho-drama. He'll call you on all of it. But then like a great sports coach, he will also help pull you up by your bootstraps and show you EXACTLY how to improve your game, step by step, day by day, tactic by tactic.
REALITY CHECK: This is not easy, folks! But if you're not discouraged by Smith's "Real Deal" approach - then this is the #1 Go-To book for personal and professional success. It's chock full of tools, application exercises, and fill-in forms to help you translate his wise advice into immediate action.
All of Jim's ideas are actionable, honest, and specific. No sugarcoating and no fluff. As I said... Don't read this book. Rather USE this book - devour it, dog-ear it, highlight it, write notes in the margins and plaster this puppy with Post-It notes because you'll need every strategy, every idea, every tactic, and every great piece of advice that Jim shares if you're going to be successful in your business career. With Jim at your side, your chances of success just went WAY UP!!!
