One of my fondest memories of my dad was his enthusiasm at every year’s Bible School program. Inevitably he would declare, “This is the best year ever!” And it was always true, for him at least. He knew how to live in the moment and really enjoy it.
So, the title to Michael Hyatt’s latest book—The Best Year Ever—made it impossible for me to overlook it, besides I got the privilege of being a pre-reader.. It will be hard to avoid superlatives as I recommend it to each and every one of you. It’s not your typical beat-the-competition how-to book. Instead it gets you to think about who you are, what do you want, what do you believe…and invites you to make a doable plan that fits you, your family, your life-style, and your ambitions.
To start things off, Michael Hyatt offers a 10-minute questionaire, an online LifeScore Assessment, to find out if the life you’re living right now is balanced in the way you want it to be. He lists ten areas, and your responses result in score that give you an indication of what’s important to you.
Did you know that changing your habits are easier when you set goals appropriately: with a pre-determined action and a specific time.
Did you know that in order to meet a goal, the goal has to have a “why.” That’s where the perseverance and desire come from. Know your why.
And The Best Year Ever is full of great quotes and content to match. Easy to read, hard to put down. Great reference book to start the new year with. Make it your best ever.
