Top Customer Reviews
Levinson and Cooper break the book into four easily digestible parts. They make their case in Part One, then help us shift from “Trying Harder to Trying Smarter” in Part Two.
I particularly loved Part Three where they give us “Smart Strategies for Getting Things Done.” This section is packed with usable ideas that are coupled with just the right dose of motivation to get us sometimes procrastinators who just “don’t get around to doing it” to move. Finally in Part Four they give us the motivation and schedules on how to master follow-through.
The book is about the most important concept of follow-through. This really is where good intentions translate over into practical bottom-line results. Without the needed follow-through you don’t ever achieve your goals.
Yes, we know this, but Levinson and Cooper are there to first, shake their heads up and down agreeing with us and understanding our “can’t get it all done” dilemma. Next, they show what can be done coupled with an appropriate amount of professional motivation that works (not just a rah-rah hype festival, but serious workable action steps).
Once they have shown what can be done and how to do it, they come back in their own follow-through sort of way and help up make sure we can get it done. Yes, this is a “get it done” kind of book that addresses what needs to be done, how to do it, and the much-needed motivational and practical follow-through. This book is about action, not just pleasant contemplation.
Bonus - I loved the format of the physical book. Unlike others I’ve seen and read, it is easy to hold, the typeset makes for easy and fast reading, and it is joyous adventure just to read it.
This is a brilliant work that Cooper and Levinson have produced. Do yourself a favor and consume it —- unless you’re my competition. If you are my competitor, DO NOT get this book! :-)
