A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Each of us has but one life to live on this earth. What we do with it is our choice. Are we drifting through it as spectators, reacting to our circumstances when necessary and wondering just how we got to this point anyway? Or are we directing it, maximizing the joy and potential of every day, living with a purpose or mission in mind?

Too many of us are doing the former--and our lives are slipping away one day at a time. But what if we treated life like the gift that it is? What if we lived each day as though it were part of a bigger picture, a plan? That's what New York Times bestselling author Michael Hyatt and executive coach Daniel Harkavy show us how to do: to design a life with the end in mind, determining in advance the outcomes we desire and path to get there. In this step-by-step guide, they share proven principles that help readers create a simple but effective life plan so that they can get from where they are now to where they really want to be--in every area of life.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 28, 2016 – Hyatt and Harkavy offer a panacea for life's challenges through conscious thinking and creating a Life Plan, which they describe as "the app you need to stay on the path to the life you desire." The basic concept is straightforward and uncontroversial: that setting goals and developing strategies to achieve them, in all aspects of one's life, will improve a person's chances of fulfillment. Their approach is logical and intuitive; readers are advised to begin by acknowledging that they've arrived at destinations they didn't "consciously choose," before setting goals based on what they'd like their life to look like when it's over, and developing detailed action plans to get there. They recommend creating "life accounts," analogous to bank accounts, for all areas of life, to facilitate monitoring their "balances." Though the message is uplifting and the authors will inspire link-minded readers, they don't deal in nuance, or acknowledge that not everyone is in a position to follow this particular path to success. Much of the advice is simplistic, but it will be a welcome reminders for those looking for inspiration such as the author's advice to say "no to good," so that they can "say yes to the great." For those needing a jump-start to sensible life planning, Hyatt and Harkavy will be a welcome one-two punch.

Good book

It was a good reminder of some old and wise advice.

Making your life a dream or a reality

The book was very inspiring though I don't know if I'm up for the challenge even though I realize the benefits. Perhaps, in my mind the task is merely too daunting or maybe I'm scared as I've not been life according to any plan. In either case, I know a plan is always better than no plan so we will just have to see. My advice for you is to just go for it. Side note: I'm not religious in the least so the Bible and God stuff sprinkled throughout was a little distracting to me and I'm sure cherished by others.
