Life Makeovers is organized into 52 chapters, one for each week of the year. (Procrastinators: don't wait until January 1 to start--just call this week "week 1" and get going.) Each chapter has a specific theme with a "Take Action Challenge": a practical strategy to put a change into action immediately. For example, week 1 encourages you to reflect on what you've done right by writing down your five greatest accomplishments and three ways you've grown in the past year. Week 5 helps you manage your time by creating an "Absolute Yes" list of your five top priorities for the next 3 to 6 months. Week 20 helps identify behaviors that trigger feelings of irritability or frustration with a "I know I'm headed for trouble when..." list and three things you'll put in place to support your self-care when these happen. Additional topics range widely, such as exploring your internal rules and standards, asking for support, improving your sleep, shaking up your daily routine, and sharing with those in need. Each chapter also includes several well-chosen resources for exploring the topic further.
If you use Life Makeovers as it's designed, you'll have the wisdom and inspiration of one of the best personal coaches in the business for a whole year. You'll have to work with her--no instant magic here--but it will be worth it. --Joan Price --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Ms. Richardson is a personal coach, and normally meets with her clientele weekly to check on how they are doing and to give them new direction. She has attempted to match that model by encouraging you to find a friend or a group to provide support for you, and to prescribe (blindly) exercises for your weekly pursuit. Although this one-size-fits-all approach may work fine for some, for many it will not be optimal.
I suggest a different approach. Treat this book as a resource guide instead. Start by reading the whole book. Make notes about which sections relate to problems that you are sure you have, and are having trouble dealing with. Then think about how solving these problems with help you have a better life. Next, reorder the sequences to get help for yourself in the areas where you need it first. When doing this, continue with a set of exercises until they become new and improving habits before taking on the next thing. Otherwise, I think you will find your busy schedule simply filled up with new self-oriented activities.Read more ›
Another book I enjoyed and recommend highly that has a "no work" approach to personal transformation is called "WORKING ON YOURSELF DOESN'T WORK" by Ariel and Shya Kane. In this book the authors write about a non judgmental way of seeing what is in your life as being a tool for lasting transformation. And it works! Since reading this book my life has become more satisfying, meaningful and rewarding. The Kanes have some great audio tapes too, such as "THE ROOTS OF SATISFACTION."
