Your Best Year Ever
Michael Hyatt’s new book, Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals, arrived at just the right time for me. I’m in the middle of my contemplative period, the time at the end of the year when I review how things went and look forward into the next.
What do I want to continue? To stop? To start?
Where am I frustrated and stuck? Where am I effective and seemingly unstoppable?
It’s a process I’ve gone through most of my life.
This year it seemed I need a boost, a grounding, something to spur on my thinking.
That’s when the delivery arrived. I knew immediately what it was from the packaging. Michael is a close friend, and he sent the book ahead of its release as an early gift. Of course, I already pre-ordered the book, so now I will have two copies, which is perfect. It’s a book I will be buying for others to spread its message.
It’s hard to describe the book. Knowing Michael, I expected a goal-setting system, but it’s far more than that. It is filled with research and stories that I found extraordinarily motivational.
The five steps are deceptively simple:
- Believe the possibility.
- Complete the past.
- Design your future.
- Find your why.
- Make it happen.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
