Crystal Clear and Understandable

Very clear writing with complete directions and analogies to help people plan ahead to accomplish their goals. Tasks, benchmarks, goals, and what to do from the first decision to success is provided. Some fill in the blank bio forms and other easy to follow suggestions are very helpful. This is a motivational book, as well.

Book Review || Your Goal Guide, A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals by Debra Eckerling founder of the D.E.B method

I have always been a goal person, daily task lists, pushing for the satisfaction of a productive day. Selecting ways to do more, reach higher, learn more. My system of goal setting didn’t quite get it. The bullet notebook method was too time-consuming and confusing with duplicate entries. A coach’s plan in recent years proved thought provoking, working through

Helpful and Fun!

Debra Eckerling's Your Goal Guide is the best friend, cheerleader, no nonsense, get it done book you need now. As a long-time procrastinator often lost in decision-making land, I found this easy-to-read, fun guide with its helpful worksheets quite useful. I moved through a block and began a path of action by following her direct, simple instructions. She addresses business goals and personal goals side-by-side and I appreciate how she makes both of them equally important. Thank y

What makes a good nonfiction book? It's one where you find yourself reading each word, taking lots of notes, and actually learning from it. This happened with me and Debra Eckerling's book, Your Goal Guide.

Your Goal Guide is jam-packed with insightful advice in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step format that will get you on the road to realizing what you want, planning your course of action, and following through to the finish line.

The first 10 chapters or so feel like directed procrastination. Lots of exercises like writing and re-writing bios, going to network groups, writing mottos and mission statements, meditating, journaling, asking people you know stuff etc... at least half of each chapter is just continuing the road trip metaphor or is basically just filler. Some whole chapters feel like filler.

The book refers to desires as goals at the beginning then we don’t really do anything with them for about 10 chapters. Fro

I would recommend this book to someone feeling stuck. I think it would especially helpful when you feel like you want something different but you're not clear on what different would look like or how to get there.

Deb offers many creative activities that guide the reader to practice naming and taking seriously their own needs and dreams. This is the foundational work and without it you may be unsatisfied with what looks like success. Defining your own "goaltopia," a picture of success that has pe

A lot of the content like writing your current and future biography and saying no to things so you have a work life balance appear in many other articles and books that were written in the past. The good thing about it is it's still effective if you don't read other books specially because of the author's clear examples. One other thing that works is the workbook format in some chapters where the reader can just simply "fill in the blanks". If there were more of this and if there were a wider ra ...more
