I have been meaning to publish my book reviews on my blog for a real long time and I found this book the best one to start things off with.
Smarter Faster Better- The Secrets of Being Productive comes from the bestselling author of The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg.
The book contains 8 simple yet powerful subjects on how to get your things done on time, fulfil your purpose and feel the best you can.
He uses various examples and provides insights into well researched papers that discuss things such as Motivation or Absorbing Data.
One of my favourite examples is for the animation FROZEN. You get stuck in life just because you have your own mountain of expectations but it takes you a while to realize that you are own inspiration and you can innovate. When Director Jennifer Lee and Songwriter Kristen Anderson-Lopez were struggling to give the animation an ending, they finally drew from their personal experiences of “letting go” and overcoming FEAR with LOVE.
Without trying how will you know and when you don’t know where you are going then things fall apart. In the Goal Setting Chapter, Charles points out “the reason why we need both stretch goals and SMART goals is that audaciousness, on its own, can be terrifying. Stretch goals, paired with SMART thinking, can help put the impossible within reach.”
So what is your impossible goal? Or what is your drag down activity and you want to let go or start afresh or simply do what you do better?
Try this book, Smarter Faster Better does get you to the path of clearing the way of nothing but your goal, productivity and satisfaction.
