[Book Review] Living Forward: a proven plan to stop drifting and get the life you want.
What do you when you fell stuck when you feel pulled off course when life feel meaningless and unfulfilling when you feel so choked with activities around you. How do you feel when you no longer feel that you know where you are headed, all your inputs seems not to bring forth the expected results, when life looks at you at the face and yet what you see is un-excitement.
I remember there was a time I was not really sure I knew what I wanted to do what direction I wanted to go. Philip Amiola recommended I read Living Forward by Micheal Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy. I started reading the book but somehow I didn’t complete it. Picking up the book again I can’t be more grateful because, if Living forward was not a book, maybe I would have lost the life lessons forever.You are here for a reason. Your job is to determine why.@MichaelHyatt @DanielHarkavy #livingforward Click To Tweet
Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest. If you must achieve this, you need to take life itself seriously. Living Forward is that manual that will ensure that you live a productive life in the best way possible. Now productivity is not about doing more but doing what you want to do.
In Living Forward, Michael and Daniel thought that as humans we have a beautiful gift called life and to enjoy it we need to have a life plan. A life plan is like a GPS for your life. People talk about plans for their career neglecting the plan for family, finance and other important aspects of their life. With a life plan, you are sure to put the big rock first before smaller ones knowing that a man’s life is but of finite days if not well planned for, one most likely will end up in regrets.
With practical examples and true life stories, Micheal and Daniel show that our life plan sits on a tripod stand of three questions. They are?
1. How do I want to be remembered?
2. What matters most?
3. How can I get from here to where I want to be?
One fascinating thing about Michael and Daniel’s life plan is this: it engages the mind and heart and this are two important part of man that tells a man who he really is and what he really wants. Secondly, it helps the individual to be real yet optimistic about life and interestingly the authors generously made available templates and tools that one can follow to create a life plan.
