I find Adam to be an amazing teacher. Almost every major contributor in the industry of personal and professional development nowadays has evolved to recommend living with gratitude and appreciation for one's life, the power of creating a clear, definite vision, and putting it into action by living it daily - in the form of small but impactful rituals (daily behaviors, performed as a routine, without paralysis-analysis), as the definite path to creating one's foundation for an "overnight" success, as well as living a fulfilled life.
Pivot is full of anecdotes and tips on how to design, execute, and enjoy a life of contribution, service, meaning, and joy, many of which come from Adam's career in the personal and business development company he leads, "New Peaks".
The book is split into two parts - the "mindset" first part, called "Clarity: Changing Your Pivot Beliefs", which goes over the importance of creating or finding within one's life direction, and the second part, "Momentum: Creating Your Pivotal Behaviors", giving the steps to be taken to bring the vision into reality.
Adam is a big believer in working on both the inner and the outer parts of one's life. One of the motos, widely taught by New Peaks, is "The roots create the fruits" (if you don't like your results (the fruits) - don't try to change them, but plant new trees (vison and beliefs) instead).
The book ends with a 21-day plan for the reader, which includes further actions, meant to take one on to another journey, by finding groups of like-minded people to grow with, including an invitation for New Peaks' events, which I have attended and enjoyed greatly - they are something else, very intense and nontraditional, definitely worth checking out in my opinion! The first event, usually three full days, could be in many cases complimentary, and the advanced follow-ups are paid for - you can choose single events or a "package" deal, should you decide to continue your journey with them...
My life has been massively improved by pivoting consistently every-so-often, in steps-like fashion, I just wan't calling it that...
Disclosure: Even though New Peaks has an amazing Affiliate program, which I am aware of, I am writing this without any benefits (not that there is anything wrong with being an affiliate), other than the fact that I love their teaching, including Adam's vision and way of leading the New Peaks seminars. All I mean is, I have have no conflict of interest in writing this. I am just a happy fan of Adam's.
I enjoyed the chapter where author Adam Markel talks about writing a letter from the other side of "How". Asking myself "what Life does my future Self Lead"? Having a WHY that makes me cry to keep me motivated in the low times. Clarity of purpose and being intentional are keys to Pivoting successfully.
My absolute favorite quote is: "what time is it? The Answer is ALWAYS NOW." The Power of Now is a gift, which is why it is called the present.
