What's in the other half? There are apparently 8 steps to achieving success. These are Identity, Values, Goals, Action Plan, Motivation, Discipline, Flexibility and Outcome. The book goes over each step of course, to help you understand it. Each section has a brief area showing you how to determine this trait in yourself, and then gives an example of "Margo", and unhappy 27 yr old office worker.
Most of us know these basic things and were getting a book to help us do them more efficiently. Some of the chapters therefore seemed very light and unhelpful - but I suppose they had to be included for the sake of going from start to end and not just "jumping into the middle". However, the actual "meat" chapters were given the same light treatment. I can understand the "identity" chapter only getting a few pages - it's important to really understand what you want in life before you plot out how to get it. That's fairly clear. On the other hand, people are getting this book because they ARE having problems getting to their goal, so you would think the "action plan" chapter would be thick and meaty. Nope!Read more ›
I recommend you consider buying it as a reference in your quest to build more motivation... it does do itself justice by articulating that motivation is grounded in one's values, and that one needs to have an in depth understanding of one's values in order for motivation to really register in whatever it is one is doing... so for that reason i recommend it... it's basic. yet it carries a point, and its easy to read and has several exercises that will actually encourage you to view your life, and your work and compare them to your values... allowing you to flush out the inconsistency between the three, you can be sure of that.. so if you are serious about building more motivation in your life, this book will be a good starter in that direction... that is once you get passed the first two chapters which are relatively short too...

This book is clear and easy to understand. It does not deal with a lot of theory about motivation and how goal setting impacts the motivation. Read morePublished on December 12, 2009 by Kevin Sivils - KCS Basketball Enterprises
