Top Customer Reviews
1. "Get a sense of where you are now and where you want to finish."
2. "Classify your life in your meaningful activities."
3. Brainstorm -- ask yourself a lot of questions.
4. What creative experiences do you want to achieve?
5. Emotional, spiritual and personal growth journeys you're on.
And four more steps that will get you a well-rounded, "you" list. Focus on that "you," not on the "you" others want for you.
Kind of fun and could be quite life-changing, from an accomplished author.
I've been working on a list of 50 things to do before I'm 50, and I got a few ideas from Bond to round out my list, but ultimately, everyone's goals are different. You don't really need 8 steps to figure out how to make a life list. Think of things you'd like to do with your life. Write them down.
Keep an eye on this one if you're truly interested, and pick it up if it's offered for free again. Pay the buck only if you're a big Bond fan and want to sponsor a cheap cup of coffee.
~The Rebecca Review
The topic is timely for us Baby Boomers. The description prepares the reader for a good discussion on the subject of life planning, and then the book speeds through it unnecessarily and unmercifully. I know that there is a definite need for brevity in writing today to deal with short attention spans, but this is ridiculous. I doubt anyone can read this book and then be ready to make and execute meaningful lists, or claim that they now have a 'strategic plan' to help make the improvements that this book portends to help you with.
Reader be warned: this is an Executive Summary, and not very useful. I've read more extensive treatments in Reader's Digest.
Ms. Bond should have called this book "Life List Lite" - where is the full version?? And to think I almost wasted my one-book-a-month Prime rental on this book; then I'd really be upset. Two stars for good structure and topic, but no more. I'd gladly have paid a few more bucks to get a real book.
