Recommendation

If Brian Tracy were your next-door neighbor, he would probably lean over the hedge to advise you on "The Seven Classic Laws of Hedge Trimming" or "The 12 Immutable Principles of Lawn Mowing." Tracy’s mind just seems to naturally work that way, absorbing valuable information on the one end and then translating it into insightful factoids on the other. This book, co-authored by Campbell Fraser, distinguishes itself by the way each brief chapter begins and ends. You start by answering one or two pointed questions about your business approach and, after reading Tracy’s itemized insights, you feel charged up for the "application exercises" at the end. When Tracy writes a book, you expect every detail to be as tidy and complete as an expensive haircut; this volume does not disappoint. It is vintage Tracy. However, readers are advised this is not a book on how to coach others, but a small package of turbo-charged personal advice. getAbstract.com highly recommends it for anyone on a personal mission to save time, manage a staff and attain greater success.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to develop a personal strategic plan;
  • How to become more productive;
  • How to delegate; and
  • How to use the "The Seven Laws of Personal Branding."

    This summary offers practical advice worth doing.

    I marked this summary as favorite to be read again. Brian Tracy talks about the power of increasing 1 skill in in your life by at least 1% consistently can have a magnitude effect.

    If that doesn't motivate someone to take action, maybe sitting on a bunson burner will.
