Now that I have read it....I am ANGRY. What a waste of money!
I found most of the book how to make these small changes pretty basic stuff. If it was a 99 cent book I wouldn't complain, but I found most of the habits common knowledge items.
Here are 5 of Mr. Scott's "small life changes" for example:
#55 Collect Dirty Laundry
#69 Practice Simple Grooming
#84 Brush your Tongue
#85 Microwave your Sponge
You get the idea.
BLUF The author got my $7 don't let him take yours.....
This book gives me things I can do RIGHT NOW to improve my life and increase my income.
I learned who to create ...
1) a morning routine
2) a production routine
3) a bedtime routine
I've had each of the above three somewhat in place on my own in the past but I've never been consistent. I work from home and get very frustrated with interruptions and low production on my end. I realized that I need to put much more discipline into my life if I want to reach my goals.
S. J. Scott is a "down to earth" "in the trenches" kinda guy. He knows what it's like working from home and what it takes to be successful.
Making an action a "habit" takes focus in the beginning. This book gives an outline and a plan, even listing pitfalls, to make some positive life habits in your life.
I look forward to implementing what I learned and what I was reminded of! Thanks!
The read is fast but that is mainly because there is no real content. If you need a list of possibly useful habits there is a list of them here, not a great list, but there is one.
You best bet is probably to skip this one all together and spend the time it takes to read this book researching the reviews of other books.
I have not yet tested the habit forming suggestion but am in the process. As I do believe small changes can make large impact.
I was expecting a bit more than obvious things like:
#1 Drink a large glass of water
#7 Remove distractions before working
#18 Return calls and text messages ("Check for missed calls first. Return your calls in the order they were received. Apologize for missing the call.")
#34 Put loose change in a jar
#46 Make your bed
#51 Throw something away
#69 Practice simple grooming ("Men should groom their facial hair or apply cologne if desired")
#82 Eat nutritious foods
#86 Go outside
Scott admits at the end of the book that most of the things in the book are things we've all heard millions of times before, and that's correct... Which is why I was hoping there would have been a bit more meat to his book than single-page ideas which are more or less common sense.
If you've ever said to yourself "I wish I could read a buzzfeed list in a printed book without the gifs" this is the book for you.
Otherwise... Instead of spending the time reading this book, spend the time doing one of those common sense things you know you should do.
Buy it, give it a quick read, be challenged, add some daily habits you know you should be doing already, then come back to it in a year and add some more habits.
