I just finished this amazing book by the world’s leading high performance coach Brendan Burchard. As some of you know, if you have been following my blog here I am a big fan of Lewis Howes and it was actually through him that I first heard of this author. So, I thought I would give it a go with this big book.
I am a huge fan of personal growth and development which I have practiced for years now and this book really gives you some ready-set-go tools for how you can work on yourself and improve your life going forward with 6 habits. They are divided between 3 personal and 3 social habits and Brendan guides you right through the process of how to obtain these, what to do and what results you will get. Here are the 6 habits for you:
Personal habits: Clarity – Energy – Necessity
Social habits: Productivity – Influence – Courage
What I love in this book is how Brendan speaks directly to you and in each chapter there are space for your own comments and where you can already start to right down your changes for what you need to do to create the habits that you need to take your life further. Brendan also shares his own life story and how he got to where he is today. There are also real life stories from several of Brendan’s clients and how they made progress as he helped them as their coach. There are links to Brendan’s website with many useful tools and a free online test to take yourself to see your own current score as a high performer 🙂
There is also an advice Brendan gives in the book that I have decided to take on which is to organize life into 10 categories. I am quite organized anyway so as an organized person I like this. The advice goes like this; every Sunday night rate these 10 life categories on a scale from 1 to 10 and of course also have a goal for each one of them. These are the 10 life categories: Health – Family – Friends – Intimate relationship – mission/work – Finances – Adventure – Hobby – Spirituality – Emotion. I think its a good way to do some self-monitoring and to avoid neglect in some areas of your life.
Anyway, for all of you interested in self improving, personal development and growth and becoming a high performer in your life I certainly recommend this book. Its a great tool and you can always revisit a chapter or two if needed as it is a big book 🙂best-sellingbookclaritycoachcouragedevelopmentenergyextraordinaryhabitshighmentorpersonalproductivityreview
