Have you started on your journey ?
And am asking from ourselves, 'do we know where we are taking ourselves now' ?
Most people think the word 'illusion' is limited only to the occurrences of one's sight [visual or optical]. But studies reveal that it is not so, and that 'visual illusions' (optical illusions), happens to be the most well-known and therefore understood.
The notion that a 'business book' is only meant for corporate executives, is also an illusion.
Hence the general public is hampered to think so at the slightest chance of wanting to read on the available 'tools of change'?
Isn't it time to realize that our life is - our business!
Thirty years ago - mind you a good thirty years ago, a business book was written titled 'The Goal' by Eliyahu M. Goldratt .
He was an educator, author, scientist, philosopher, and a business leader.
It was written like a novel with nuggets in all its 408 pages and became highly recommended.
In the mean time, until you cultivate your reading habits with laser targeting this book is a must read to every one.
a) The writing is an easy read with just around 55 pages.
b) Thirty years later, it's a book for our times
c) And if you have realized that, 'your life is - your business' , this book will make you fly.
d) Written by a Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon who works with families who are under-privileged.
He performs surgery on children born with heart defects to these families who have no resources to do
anything about it.
With some great examples, wit, and uncanny perception he leads you down the path to understand how to focus. It can be just simple things you leave out that makes all the difference in the world. Using this, book you can become a more focused person using his simple techniques.
It helped me to see why I can focus sometimes and not others and to improve what I am already doing.
If you need to get things done, this is a MUST book to read.
1) I found the book a joy to read because of Dr. Mani's "cute" sense of humor.
2) He challenged my imagination and my self-worth. He not only gave tips, he explained them, gave the benefits and "encouraged" me to try them.
3) I love the analogy between time and the Ming vase. He showed why I should respect my time and my focus.
This book is valuable to me because I am one of those who enjoys procrastinating. After reading the book, I started to make a list of what to do and what not to do ..... thank you Dr. Mani.
One thing I would like to have included is "The 33.33 System". It would be great if I can just keep on reading the book (with the system already included) instead of stopping to go to another link. it interrupts the flow of concentration and focus.
I consider "How To Focus" to contain knowledge that is essential for anyone who desires to get what they want out of life. Inasmuch, it warrants my highest recommendation.
By buying this book I help support his efforts with these kids.
Concise and to the point, it's all about setting your goals and focusing on achieving them.
Filled with insights and "a-ha moments," one of my favorite lines from the book is:
"Efficiency is about doing things right. Effectiveness is about doing the right things."
Buy it. Read it. Apply the concepts to your life and business...
And this time next year you'll look back and marvel at how productive you've become!
Dr. Mani is amazing and writes with a truly effective style.
Do yourself a favor. Spend 5 bucks and take your life to the next level.
And, have a GREAT day.
