Why does it seem like some people want to do a lot of things, talk about them all day long, but then get nothing done? I've often been guilty of that. Probably most people have. Is it easier to stay stuck?

But not everyone is stuck. Some people get exactly what they want and keep achieving more. So what sets those few apart? Are they just lucky, or are they doing something the rest of us aren't?

This book talks about that difference. But you have to read with an open mind. It's not easy to have ideas you've held for a long time be challenged, but obviously those ideas aren't working, or you'd already be where you wanted to be. Right?

So this book explains the following idea: "figure out what's keeping you from being happy and then remove that problem." Sounds easy, but are you really ready to do that? If you are, then buy this book.

Our thought processes hold us back, and this book will, if you allow it, help you to change those processes. I think it's something that could benefit all of us. In fact, I plan on going back to reread this book a few times as I work on my own negative ideas about the world.

This is an easy to read book which contains some fundamental thinking on what we are and how to live with greater flow. For example, it deals with understanding ourselves and both our primary and secondary purposes in life. It greatly expands the ordinary notion of "ego/I." Its final chapter covers half a dozen ways of making these important ideas concrete in our lives. It comes with a downloadable bonus "4 Ways to Boost Productivity." If you are serious about understanding your own nature, I highly recommend this book.

I've always had challenges with managing my (millions of) tasks. The title of this book drew me like a magnet! And surprise, surprise, it contained FAR more than just tips on how to get things done. It comes from the perspective of "the problem is not really whats on the surface" and I found that so refreshing!

I'm a self-awareness junkie and have been a fan of tools like The Sedona Method and similar tools since 2004. This book ties right into the principles I value - self-awareness, taking a look at what's REALLY underneath our desire to do things "better" and stop the procrastination.

Dennis explains some of the underlying principles in a logical fashion and does a great job doing so. Yet, he reiterates that words cannot really talk about that which he attempts to explain.

All in all, a great, enjoyable read. If you're already into self-awareness and finding out "who you really are", this will add value to your toolbox. If you have no idea what I'm talking about - read this book, it will give you a totally different perspective and may just change the way you look at your life.

I download and read lots of books to overcome procrastination. Like most people, i have a pretty big dream, i dare pursue it, but at times i get distracted by perfectionism, and also procrastination. This is not a simple matter. Procrastination, perfectionism, self-doubt, overwhelm and low self-worth are all forms of self-sabotage. They are the biggest dream killers on the planet!!!

I believe this book gave me some new insights, something to note is that the author is a graduate from syracuse university, NY. Although it is sometimes pretty dry to read, i force myself to give it a read through, and end up getting more than i can bargain for. I enjoyed the chapter on personal power training. That is something very new despite reading tons of self-help books.

I was reading another book last week, How to Supercharge Your Willpower 10X Longer than Everyone else - Even if you have a history of Procrastination, Perfectionism and Self-Doubt (The Start-up Entrepreneur Edition) This book on the other hand gave a pretty compelling explanation on why most self-help is mostly Shelf-help. If you're an aspiring entrepreneur, it explains the Fatal Flaws That Stop Entrepreneurs Dead In Their Tracks - And How To Work Around Them Without Changing ourselves. It gave me an epiphany that I should outthink my flaws" instead of struggling to eliminate them...pretty compelling for me... Hope this helps all of you who are struggling to achieve your goals and dreams!

This is an interesting and inspiring book that helps you look at all the subjects in the book in a philosophical way,
understanding the why, and getting suggestions on how to solve the issues with a simple and at the same time appealing approach.

Bradford sees change through the eyes of fundamental philosophical laws. This isn't a book to accept lightly. He redefines happiness to help teach differences in the value of getting things done as a function of accepting your life first. Bradford asks questions to help the reader comprehend the "use of desire" and various causes that create undesired actions. The final effort effort to your transformation explains how important it is to 'Just Be.' Living in the ever-present Now is a goal of many philosophies. Creating that state as part of your willful desire to change can be a conflict that goes well past this book. A little more focus would have been helpful, but the material is rich in personal discovery and awareness.
