Thanks to Stephanie Bond for the free copy

As one of the great unemployed, I have been trying to figure out what to do with my life. I honestly don't see much hope and usually curl up in my bed to watch Family Feud. What I realized from this very short how-to is that life if truly passing me by. Even though I'm ummm...up in age, I still have dreams & things I want to do. Somehow I have forgotten that. Following Bond's 8 steps to create my personal life list will help me reach the goal of seeing m

This book took 8 minutes to read. It's more like a pamphlet. Don't bother.

Not a book and nothing new imo. Not helpful at all. Make a list and do it - there, you’ve read the article 😁

I received a free copy of this book from the author. Here's my honest review:

I am so inspired to make a life list!! And it honestly helps that I've been making some (hopefully) life-changing decisions lately, like going back to school and cutting back on work to make school happen. It's time I got my life in order, and this was JUST the book I needed.

Bond does not tell you HOW to get these things accomplished. That's not what this book is for. This book will help you to figu

At first glance I thought... how stupid... this is a to do list brochure, but then I saw a few things I hadn't even considered to put on a to do list such as spiritual, social, and community goals.
I decided before I would chuck it in the cloud pile... to try it. I found that with examples Stephanie gives it reminded me of forgotten goals. I wrote down a few given and then my own and my to do lust did become a life list.
But the main reason I enjoyed thus excercise was it helped me get out of thi

I'm a fan of self-help books - and I have a HUGE life list, one that I work on accomplishing things from as often as I can. I found this book on Freebooksy one day and decided that I had to give it a chance - I mean, it's short, it's free (well, now it's like $0.99) and it's talking about something I really enjoy - why not? It really wasn't bad at all. It does give some information that I already knew, but it was clever the way that it was written and was very motivational. :)

I'm always looking for ideas to expand my horizons, and there are many good ones in here but none that I found beneficial for me. Still this is a good guide if someone is looking for that something more. It is a good article to start a new year with or any time you are looking for a change and are willing to take action. (Best done with at least one friend, preferably more.)

Bond is a brilliant writer who's also a brilliant business woman, and her no-nonsense approach to life is easily applicable to writing and working, as well. This is a quick, sensible, easy-to-follow read that I found immensely inspirational.

This is a quick, to-the-point practical little book. I enjoyed reading it and have referred back to it. Some of the techniques suggested are refreshing, and it actually has something new to say. Creating the life list as the author suggests can lead to all kinds of success.

I highly recommend that you take a few minutes to read this book and then a lifetime to write and edit your life list as you grow and/or accomplish your dreams. I am writing mine today....This book inspired me and reminded me that it's never too late to accomplish your dreams.
Jan 02, 2013 rated it it was amazing
This book will take less than 30 minutes to read, yet the advice is invaluable for anyone who feels stuck in a rut and lacking the imagination to identify and make their dreams come true. Excellent read!

You can form and do what this book suggests to create your bucket list and start doing the things on it. You can read the book in about 10 minutes!

While this was a good how-to booklet on making a bucket list, it lacked inspiration. No oomph. It didn't did it for me.

lots of good information on how to create, manage, and document goals. I found the information helpful in organizing and documenting my priorities personally and professionally.

Simple but effective

Just the basics for making a list of life goals. A quick and easy read, but little to say about the mechanics of achieving them. Great for a beginner.
