This book is for people who are ready to challenge their mindset, put the past in its proper place, fuel their future, renew their purpose and take some serious action. At then end of each chapter are simple templates to prioritize and plan out your next steps. When the book is all said and done you just follow the plan!
I love the stories and research that make the goals that were once lofty feel both attainable and realistic. My favorite part of the book was the difference between "the discomfort zone" and "the delusional zone". I'm also a huge fan of the artwork and the summary quotes in the book!
Whether you are a Michael Hyatt fan, or new to his tribe - this book won't disappoint. I've been following his work for years and I feel like I learned lots of new, actionable things that will make a difference. I'm excited that I received an advance copy so that I could dive into this right away.
One quote that I have hanging in my office from the book is, "People lose their way when they lose their why." If you want your WHY and your WAY to meet up, then just follow Michael Hyatt to Your Best Year Ever. It's an easy read that paves the way to a jourey to make a dream life become a reality.
If that isn’t enough of a recommendation for you to order this book right now here are a few of the benefits I have gotten from this book already.
1. Michael is clear with his approach. He does a great job of making clear what and how you can take action on the step by step process he lays out.
2. He uses practical and current examples. I love that this book comes after tens of thousands of people have gone through his online course enabling him to use examples from alumni that apply practically to real world situations.
3. Nothing is oversimplified or sugar-coated. For me acknowledging struggles will happen along the way is key to having the persistence to continue. Then connecting that to the fact that failing doesn’t mean I can never do it, it is simply an opportunity to learn what I need to change to succeed.
4. Helping you find your motivation. Michael helps define how to find your motivation and how to tap into applying it to your situation to maximize your success. This is vital in moving from simply writing down goals to taking action on the goals you hold most valuable for the upcoming year!
If you have been looking for a book to help you move the mark and succeed at what is most important to you in work, family and life this is it. Applying the process and using the templates in this book will help you move from thinking about what you want to do to getting it done. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I am.
What I really liked about "Your Best Year Ever" is that it didn't focus on one principle, but it covered a huge variety of principles that will help you further your vision and goals. In many of the topics I could think of books I had read or knew were out there that covered different ideas, but instead of taking a whole book on one thing, Hyatt takes a few pages and moves on to the next thing that will help you.
There were many things I knew or that I didn't feel applied to me personally, but they were a good review and important to be there. The book wasn't written just for me after all. There were some really powerful lessons in here for me, things I needed to hear. One lesson hurt - something that I thought was a personal strength is actually something slowing me down. I put down the book for a week so I could let that one soak in.
Books that feel like they are selling something the whole time irritate me. Michael Hyatt has other books, courses, and a planner. He references them periodically, but to me it felt like sources for more info, not, hey go buy that too.
I highly recommend this. I'm glad I've got this in hand to help me move forward in things I know are important for me to do. I've already given one copy as a gift and plan on passing it to others as well.
