"Super Sexy Goal Setting" is written in a way that keeps you interested with the author's humor and jovial good wit. I like the writing style of this book and the ease by which I could do the activities. Goes can be intimidating for many people but with the right guidance you will have a solid portfolio done by the end of the two hours or so it takes you to read this book.
I for one have lots of goals, over 20 for this year, but I like the approach of having just fur instead of a whole bunch to try and get done. It is less overwhelming that way and more realistic when you focus on less as opposed to more.
Overall a great little book on setting goals that you can't ignore. Grab it and get moving on your goals for this year while there is still time.
Both at the start and at the end of her book, Julie Schooler makes a few big points about the WHY of setting goals. She makes clear why it's fear that makes us shy away from them.
She makes a very interesting point why choosing goals can be done without knowing your purpose in life: "The really great thing about choosing four goals and having a short time span in which to achieve them is that taking action on the goals makes you much more likely to work out direction and meaning for your life. Instead of thinking purpose comes before action, action can actually precede purpose. How can you know your entire life’s purpose until you try something and see if you can stick to it for 12 months?"
The book goes on by slashing SMART, the acronym so often used by schoolmasters who want to teach about goal setting. Schooler implicitly tries to not let me THINK my goals, but FEEL them. This makes a lot of sense, when you think (!) about it.
I had difficulty understanding this part: "Having no more than four goals will help to reduce the chance of competing goals and goal overwhelm in general. If it helps, only focus on one, two or three goals, at least for a time."
Because, when I look at my life, I have certainly many areas for which I have goals. For example, related to health, work, inner work, creative pursuits, income, housing, and relationships. In relationships I have goals for every important relationship I am in. So, in fact, even when I focus on four NEW goals, and make time for them, I still have all other goals competing in the background. My way of dealing with this issue, is twofold: (1) I stay true to my routines. This way I can take care of my health and inner work goals, for instance. (2) I see my goals as priorities when everything else is running smooth enough. When for instance my housing situation is becoming critical, I will make a new goal and priority around it, and maybe give up another priority.
Julie Schooler in the last chapter writes that goal setting is about focusing on what is important to your true self, and get into action to move towards that - an important point to make, and a good reason for me to use her book to that aim.

Those are the author's words and not mine. And they probably tell you quite a bit about the author and this book. Believe me... this isn't your average goal setting book. I know - I've read my share of goal and success books. So why do I think this one is worth reading?
First, the author passionately wants you to fulfill your potential. This is not just about deciding to lose X pounds or earn Y dollars. It's about setting important, life-changing goals. And that's something worth getting excited about.
Second, the author makes goal setting both fun AND practical. This is not your average dry read on how to create goals. It's lively and inspiring. I walked away with a renewed belief that I can do amazing things with my life. Plus some practical tools to help me make them happen. Now that's definitely worth a few dollars and a couple of hours of your time.
Well with her indefatigable passion, humour as well as practical advice, I think we have a winner!
Easy read with an inspiring message for all - if you want to inject some passion into what you want to achieve then this book will give you the roadmap...
