ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR ~Jason Harvey
Be inspired daily to live your dreams and accomplish your goals
ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR is just the kind of book I love to start my day with and think about all day long. ACHIEVE is a BOOK OF DAYS and an INSPIRATION, and a CHANGE ARTIST’s greatest support. I think I could read this book several years in a row and still be inspired. I believe it is all in the twist of humor which just catches your eye and brings on a smile.
These days I slowly get out of bed in the mornings, my luxury. I check my emails, Facebook, and then other sites. I do not write or respond, but rather get an over view of my day. Zip and I then lift ourselves up and head for the window to get a glimpse of the weather and clothing requirements for the day; ready to venture forth we set the stage by reading from a Book of Days or a poem/song; heading out for our hour of walking and contemplation which becomes a moving meditation. ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR truly set an interesting pace to our days. These words gave us momentum and I can honestly say that one minute a day has made quite a difference in my whole outlook.
The book’s format is terrific. Each day begins with a quote, that is relevant and success promoting. The quote is followed by a short essay and then an easy exercise, such as making a list of 5 things or giving a worthwhile compliment to someone you encounter. The essays are centered on various themes which enable change; for 5 days I read about how to improve my listening skills and then followed through with an exercise. I did do all the small assignments in my notebook and that took about 3-5 minutes on most days; reading the DAY was about 1 minute as noted by my Kindle. One of the most delightful changes I have made is to stop doing “one more thing” before I sit down to write. I have found sitting down and even just answering an email gets the writing juices flowing and when I hit the wall, well then I get up and cut the carrots, or put in a load of laundry. Second little change is that I stop reading every hour and do my arm exercises and stretching, I thought I would lose track of the story and instead my productivity has soared. My Kindle tells me my reading pace and after a week of this change, took 2 hours off the reading time of a book and increased retention of themes and ideas. I no longer had a stiff neck and my eyes were not as tired.
These changes took place during the 55 days I read the 365 page book (The book has an introduction and conclusion page also). I only had 60 days before the review needed to be published and I will admit I randomly moved to the end to get a better sense of the whole and be able to share with you my thoughts. I liked this Book of Days and will return to Day 56 and keep going. I feel energized and not so often discouraged. I feel successful at this very moment as I type and I want to continue feeling this way – when something works for a person they generally keep doing it.
I gave my partner a copy of ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR as he begins figuring out his retirement goals. I believe doing a little step every day will give him momentum towards enjoying his new lifestyle to the max.
ACHIEVE ANYTHING IN JUST ONE YEAR is a great and simple habit and I can highly recommend it to you.
