My thoughts

This is definitely going to be joining my go to self help books that I want to keep and re-read. For me, it really helped clarify a few things I need to do and some changes I need to make. I've written several 'stuck in a rut' blogs over the last 12 months and with this book I've got the focus to actually do something about it. I don't think I've written so many notes in my journal in years!

And for me some of it has been a simple change in thinking. Instead of the usual 'I'm stuck in

I have two favorite self help books, The Secret By Rhonda Byrne and You Are a Badass By Jen Sincero. Now, I have three favorite self help book including Someday Is Not a Day in the Week. Every chapter and section of this book was easily relatable and easy to connect with the advice Sam Horn gives throughout the book. Before reading this book, I was one of those that thought Someday i'll try this or I'll get to it Someday but as Buddha says what if someday never comes and all you'll have is ...more

A book that helps decide what you want and how to get there. Nothing we haven't read before, but still useful to get reminded.

As humans, we’ll always have problems. The question is, are they the same problems we had last year and the year before that. If so, that’s a good indicator we’re living in someday land.

Happiness doesn’t require more time, it requires that you stop waiting for the right time.

Life is to be enjoyed, not endured.

One of the many wonderful things about being a human being is we can change for good—on any given day. All we have to do is identify one thing we’re going to do differently and

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher St. Martin’s Press for this awesome motivational book! This self-help book encourages you to assess how you spend your time and make a shift to doing the things that you value and make you happy! It is full of life hacks, motivational quotes and insight to help you figure out what is really important to you.
The author asks the question, are you spending your time aligned with what you value? I am a self-help book junkie and this one is refreshing and

Thank you St Martins Press and Netgalley for an ARC in return of my honest review.

I have been listening to a number of similarity themed podcasts in recent weeks so this book complemented these perfectly. It was super easy to read yet had a nice depth and wisdom attached. Some of the concepts may be new to some readers, or they may be gentle yet powerful reminders to others.

A fabulous book to remind us all to use everything inside ourselves to live our best ever life.

***I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway***

I appreciate the first few chapters of this book which detail specific methods for thinking about our priorities and how we spend our time. Regardless of what dreams you may have, it is important to have a concrete understanding of where you are and where you want to be.

This book is divided into "Life Hacks" which sound great, but they were just kind of confusing. Negotiate. Celebrate. Evaluate. There were so many of them and they are so vague that

There are a few reasons whySomeday Is Not a Day in the Week by Sam Horn irritated me. I’m not sure which is THE reason. I started reading it on the plane to Melbourne and it’s been crazy busy since with finding work, starting school, and adjusting to

I was sent this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Based on the author's own experience of watching her father suffer a stroke two weeks after his retirement. Since he never was able to experience all the wonderful plans that he had made for some day, the author realized how important it was for everyone to realize their "some day" as soon as possible. The book offers numerous life hacks and some exercises for readers to examine their current roadblocks and ...more

If you you're feeling that there must be some way to get your life more focused on what makes you happy and satisfied, then this is the book for you. It's a simple-to-read guide that walks you through a series of ten hacks that gives advice that seems to have some real life value. I know it has left me with the notion that I can't delay getting on with attaining my goals and some actual ideas on how to obtain them.
I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway for this honest review.
An interesting self-help book that is designed with the idea of "Carpe Diem." While there are multitudes of "Seize the Day" books on the market, Ms. Horn's "Someday Is Not a Day in the Week" gives the reader the initiative to become active and self-conscious. I personally liked Life Hacks 3, 4, 6 and 7, because of their influence on how to connect or succeed in the business realm. The idea of "not driving into hurricanes" just so that you can keep minor commitments is a different perspective ...more

What a refreshing alternative to all the other "live in the now" guides out there! I consider myself an "advanced student" on this topic, and wasn't sure I'd gain much from another such guide, and was pleasantly surprised, I thought I was living my best life and focusing on my goals, when in reality, I probably knew in my heart that I'm not making my passions a priority on a regular basis. Sam Horn's guidance lit a fire under me, particularly with the new yer only a few weeks away!

It is important to remember that promising to follow a dream “someday” never works because Someday is Not a Day in the Week.

This book gives ten life hacks that can help you align your ultimate goals with your current reality. Are the life hacks new ideas that you have never heard before? No. However, the author has an enthusiasm for them that is contagious. The book is motivating! Unfortunately, it is aimed a bit toward the well-off members of society. For example, I can’t quit my job until I

Save Yourself from Regrets

Constantly putting off the things you really want to do can lead to regrets when you realize the opportunity has passed. This is a self-help book that argues that your dreams are too important to put on the back burner. If you want happiness you must pursue the things you value.

This book gives good advice on how to figure out what is really important to you and how to work toward achieving it. In addition to giving suggestions for how to figure out what you want, the

There were so many typos and punctuation errors in this book. This is the second St. Martins Press book that I've read in a row with rampant errors throughout. Please, copyedit your books!

As far as content, a lot of this book contained common sense. There really wasn't anything new or interesting that can't be found in the hundreds of other self-improvement books currently published. It's worth a read to give you a little motivation, but you shouldn't expect anything groundbreaking or

OH, WOW! This is the book I needed to give me the kick in the butt to make my life more productive and happy. It was a pleasure taking notes, and deciding what really are my talents and things that make me happy. I would recommend this for any person who is torn or indecisive about any kind of life decisions. I will definitely keep this book again as a booster reminder to do what makes me smile!

3.5 stars. Lots of great ideas and little stories to help you think about how you structure and prioritize your life’s goals. Just too long! Some things are better summed up. Many great quotes, but so many that they blurred together. I liked that she suggested exercises to do as you read to reflect on the concepts. I should’ve done them.

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads Giveaway (I believe is what it's called).

I have been wanting to read more self-help type books, but am always wary because I like books that back what they preach instead of just preaching at you. This delivered that need completely!

Every chapter there were stories that backed what was being recommended to do. I also liked how there are interactive ways to help get us on the path of our life that we want to be. I hope to reread it again soon

A self-help book that teaches the reader about the importance of prioritising. What is really important in your life? What are your priorities? What makes you happy? Why aren't you doing the things that make you happy?

If you're looking for a book to help you bust through your excuses, live more meaningfully, hone in on your calling, or all of the above, you'll want to get a copy of this book. This book will mindfully walk you through exercises and questions that offer clarity and purpose. The chapters move quickly and efficiently so you'll make progress instead of putting things off for "someday."

Excellent guide to life in general.

Money does matter ~ and the happy number of $75,000 is where a lot of people do NOT find themselves. So, for many people it is hard to get beyond that aspect. I believe we adapt and find our wealth of happiness in other places that are attainable.

I enjoyed the stories at the beginning of each chapter.

I won an advance reader copy of this book from Goodreads.

I've heard the expression 'existing and not living' from so many people through the years. This self help book helps you transition from that state of mind and being. If you want to live a life that makes you fulfilled and happy, a life in which you truly 'Seize the Day' this is the book for you. It's a very straightforward and well written book that is easy to follow. There are also many meaningful quotes littered

I received this book from a goodreads giveaway.

I had an ARC so there were grammatical/typographical errors. Usually these can be distracting for me, but the author's message and writing style were so compelling that the small errors (which I'm sure will be fixed before the final copy is printed) that the messages in the book came through loud and clear. This is a book I expect I'll revisit many times and I found it to be very motivating and thought provoking. It's easy to get down on yourself at

Received copy of the book as a Giveaway winner. I liked the book - I thought it offered good, practical information that is usable in everyday life. Written in a concise manner, using everyday language. Would be excellent for a book club (gives book club information in the book) or a womens/mens/youth group at Church. I didn't purchase the journal mentioned in the book, just used a spiral notebook which served the same purpose. I made a lot of notes and plan on implementing what I learned. Thank ...more
