Recommendation

Famed executive coach Marshall Goldsmith presents a blueprint for achieving the most difficult thing any adult can do – changing your personal behavior. He and co-author Mark Reiter explain why your “environment” makes change so difficult. They warn of situations, events and people – even sounds – that can set you off, derail your efforts to change and cause reactions you come to regret. Negative behaviors can make you miserable. Few adults succeed in making significant behavioral change, but this manual describes how to do it by understanding your triggers and taking control of them. Filled with folk wisdom, this heartfelt guide – by the authors’ admission – states and restates the obvious to reinforce its lessons. You may have heard some of this advice before, but following it is what matters. getAbstract recommends this manual’s simple tools for successful personal change. It can help almost anyone who resolves to improve.
