The author basically says that you need this elements in order to succeed in your goals:

-constantly think about your OBSTACLES, how are you not going to achieve what you want
-get specific on HOW you're going to achieve you goal
-focus on IMPROVING YOURSELF, not necessarily comparing yourself with other people
-and she offers us an amazing tool that seems simple, but it's not: IF-THEN plans
IF-THEN planning is an amazing tool for self-control.
A must read!
This book is much more concise than the other 378 page self-development encyclopedias you can find on the market. Halvorson does a solid job of presenting each habit, clarifying it, providing examples of its application and usefulness, and finally leaving the reader with a “putting it into practice” checklist. The habits themselves are universal and it is clear that anyone who implements these into their daily lives would be better off. I only had one quarrels with the book. Some of the “putting it into practice” checklists are scant. Granted some of the habits are more situational, it would have been nice to have at least a few actionable items for each habit that could be started right now.
Overall, I recommend giving Halvorson a shot. When I bought the book it was under $7 and, given the quality of the book’s content, there is no doubt this book will be a positive return on investment.
I found this book to be easy to read and full of examples on how to change one's ways to better incorporate one or more of the prinicples into their daily routines.
I give this book my highest five (5) star rating and recommend it to anyone looking at ways to better improve themselves.
