"GOAL! helped me develop a workable plan to tackle a really important goal that I had been wanting to do for years. That goal was something that meant a lot to me, but I couldn't figure out how to get started. GOAL! showed me how to create an action plan and then lots of motivational tools along the way that kept me working on the goal until I finished it. If you have a difficult goal that you have wanted to go after for a long time, I highly recommend this book. I had been thinking about my goal for 3 years and it feels good to have finally accomplished it. "

I expected more from this book, especially since all 23 of the previous reviewers gave it 5 stars. It is a short book (about 150 pages). The second half of the book is a day by day "journal" for the reader to document his/her progress toward his/her goals. That doesn't leave a lot of room for the experts to share their knowledge. On top of that, there are many success stories that simply don't resonate with me. Thus, I got very little out of this book. However, there are many other books about goals that I have found useful. If you are interested in a book that is more substantial, take a look at Brian Tracy or Orna W. Drawas.

I purchased this book based on all the positive, glowing reviews and five star ratings on Amazon. When I got this book and started reading it, I have to say that, although the book can be a bit too general, the information is not bad and can work. Some of the things I liked includes finding what's holding you back, finding accountability partners (surprisingly, alot of goal setting books don't mention this), finding out what availiable resources you have (most people focus on what they DON'T have) and finding out what you need to achieve your goal. I do want to say that, although the author does focus on business and career goals, these techniques can translate to other goals as well.

OK, so with all that being said, I do have to say this: alot of the information here is not new. I know that in the realm of self-help and personal development, especially when it comes to the topic of goal-setting, this type of criticism is common. Regardless, in the case of this book, it's appropriate (and I have to say this simply because with all the positive reviews, I somehow expected more).

In the beginning of this book, the author(s) walk you through alot of questions you should be considering when starting a goal. Many of these questions are things you can probably figure out if you think about it (or if you're an avid reader of goal setting books). However, if per chance you can't come up with these questions, then this book may be of use to you.

The author(s) also give you examples of how to do a business plan and their example of a goal setting worksheet. Variations of this goal-setting worksheet can be found in other self-help books.

The book's cover says "30-day game plan for success". I didn't think I would accomplish my goal in 30 days but I knew the book was probably a great primer. It turned out to be the complete solution for reaching my goal. It's simple, straightforward and geared toward taking action. My issue has been procrastinating and I jumped to that section. What I read in that part sustained me every time I had the desire to quit. The book has a built-in accountability piece and who doesn't need that? I followed the book's 30 day goal track, which was eerily in step with what I needed at specific points in time. I've read many goal books but this one stands out in its directness, simplicity and it's motivational components that make your goal seem doable. Having completed a goal that was in my head for many years, I am now on to something even more challenging. What I learned in this book gives me the confidence that I can tackle future goals. I highly recommend it.

After several years of reading motivational books that got me all fired up but didn't tell me what to actually "do" towards reaching my important goal, I bought "GOAL! Your 30 Day Game Plan for Business and Career Success". It's a short book, about 140 pages in all, but what it had to say made a big difference in me achieving a long-standing goal.

What sets this book apart from other motivational books is how practical in nature it is. Yes, there is certainly a philosophical component to it, but that is backed up with a lot of practical guidance that resonated with me. And the book is very interactive in nature. For example, right from the start, I was required to write down my goal in very specific terms and then to write my motivations for why this goal was important to me. For the first time in many years of thinking about my goal, I was compelled to examine my motivations around why the goal was important to me and what negative thoughts I had that had been preventing me from achieving my goal. When I replaced these negative thoughts with correspondingly positive thoughts, I had mentally "cleared the way" to see my goal as achievable.

GOAL! did a good job of helping me overcome obstacles like procrastination and hitting plateaus during the course of working toward my goal. There were a number of great stories about people like Richard Branson and Anderson Cooper who overcame huge hurdles to success.

There was also a section of the book devoted to 30 days of exercises that helped keep me on track and moving towards my goal. The exercises only took about 5-10 minutes to do, but they served a useful purpose in that they had me thinking about my goal from the standpoint of already having achieved it.
