Summary of Aligned Thinking
Make Every Moment Count
Take the time to align each action with your deepest goals. That`s the secret to making every moment count.
To determine what you really want and work toward it, use the tools of "aligned thinking" - including the "MIN" or "most important now" secret - to reframe your attitude about your work and personal life. Tying your work to your long-term goals will make you more motivated to do things you once thought of as chores. The secret of success, according to author Jim Steffen, is to make every moment part of your master plan. In other words, "be here now." You have heard that advice before, but this book describes how to apply it. This is a short book (and could have been shorter), but nonetheless, it imparts useful techniques for getting more out of your time and life. Steffen takes you through a basic prioritizing and time management process to help you clarify where you’re going in life, how to get there and how your daily tasks fit that goal. getAbstract recommends this book to you if you’ve really never sat down before to figure out your deepest desires and how to attain them.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to align every aspect of your life with your deepest goals; and
- The secret of what is "most important now" or "MIN," and how to apply it to set your priorities.
