About the Author
Proven techniques from a practitioner. True stories.
I'm Michal Stawicki and I live in Poland, Europe. I've been married for over 14 years and am the father of two boys and one girl. I work full time in the IT industry, and recently, I've become an author. My passions are transparency, integrity and progress.
In August 2012, I read a book called "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olson. It took me a whole month to start implementing ideas from this book. That led me to reading numerous other books on personal development, some effective, some not so much. I took a look at myself and decided this was one person who could surely use some development.
In November of 2012, I created my personal mission statement; I consider it the real starting point of my progress. Over several months time, I applied several self-help concepts and started building inspiring results: I lost some weight, greatly increased my savings, built new skills and got rid of bad habits while developing better ones.
I'm very pragmatic, a "down to earth" person. I favor utilitarian, bottom-line results over pure artistry. Despite the ridiculous language, however, I found there is value in the "hokey-pokey visualization" stuff and I now see it as my mission to share what I have learned.
My books are not abstract. I avoid going mystical as much as possible. I don't believe that pure theory is what we need in order to change our lives; the Internet age has proven this quite clearly. What you will find in my books are:
- detailed techniques and methods describing how you can improve your skills and drive results in specific areas of your life
- real life examples
- personal stories
So, whether you are completely new to personal development or have been crazy about the Law of Attraction for years, if you are looking for concrete strategies, you will find them in my books. My writing shows that I am a relatable, ordinary guy and not some ivory tower guru.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So in the light of changing myself in 10 minutes a day, the book did lay out some guidelines/steps towards success that I can follow for whatever I want. Here’s some of what I got out of the book, to be altered to my own agenda.
The biggest factor and nugget from the book for me: Have YOUR reason to change, good enough to inspire you to start an action. "Thoughts become action, and actions become results." If an action isn’t bringing results then change your action. Ask yourself what your philosophy for change is because if you don’t have one strong enough you won’t change. “I want to lose weight” or “I want to be healthy” or “I want to spend more time with God” won’t cause you to change. Without having/knowing this you will probably not have enough motivation to change.
• Eat less, move more (physical)
• Weigh yourself regularly (measure current state towards success, or, where are you on the ruler?)
• Get knowledge (educate yourself)
• Get a mentor (someone who’s already done it?)
• Have an accountability partner (they don’t have to be doing what you’re doing, just be on the path with you to cheer you on.)
• Self-talk is huge (I include visualization in this category)
• Be flexible (hard on us perfectionists to do)
• Keep a Diet Log (daily record of what you’re doing in that area, or, what have you done today towards change?)
• Take it seriously (for me that means make it a priority, it’s hard for me to make something happen since I’m out to please everyone else)
• Make a plan (decide on Tactic)
• Keep it simple
• Be mindful (what does this look like in what I’m doing?)
• Ask specific questions every night and if you don’t know the answer find out why. (analyze)
I enjoy Michal's books because he's practical and he's lived through what he writes about.
