an easy to read book, smooth, simply written yet with interesting ways to help one focus, set goals, and practice implenting plans to reach goals.
No one can help us if we do not choose and focus on helping ourselves, this book is good for referring to everytime one feels like he or she is loosing track or loosing motivation to move on.
I read through the book, but I know I will at times in the future need to refer back to it.
I recommend this book for everyone,,those...more
And I'm really happy I did as did as this book is a little gem.
What it did for me is give me some clues to self improvement while confirming some of what I had already done.
Having short chapters meant I could get through them done fairly quickly and then move on to another idea in the next chapter.
Some of the material and ideas I knew about and others were an aha moment.
All in all I rate it highly
Although this book stands alone, it reinforces the first book, Targeting Success. It is a very enjoyable read. Inspirational and motivational. There are great stories about "real people" making it happen, each in their own way.
It offers great direction and insite.
A spunky fresh approach to succeeding in life!
This book will remain in my permanent library while others come and go.
Although very different from Zig Ziglar in writing style, Lorii Myers is a positive great thinker and this is evident in her writing.
She is quickly ramping up with her new "3 Off the Tee" series: motivational, inspirational, dynamic, and fresh!
I've now read this book twice. I love the "real life" stories and I have noticed, by reading through the second time, I absorbed some information I had missed the f...more

I recieved this book through the Goodreads first reads program.
In the Authors second 3 Off the Tee book she moves from Business Success to Personal Success. Something which I believe has to precede business success.
She walks us through 18 chapters titled as the 18 holes on a golf course.
The front half of the book (Holes 1 to 9) are about mentally preparing for success. As you may already know if you don’t prepare yourself mentally fo...more
I used to play a lot of golf with hubby, and luv'd the game. Still luve it but my back doesn't. sigh! Our sons play golf though. One doesn't HAVE-TO play or even know HOW-TO play to enjoy this clever application of ideas through the "holes" of the game of golf. Spectacular!
GREAT and fantastic number of memorable 'quotes', as well. I HIGHLY...more

Things I didn't like: I hate it when words break across the lines. Unfortunately, I'm not a sports person, so I generally just found the book to be confusing.
