This book aims to encourage readers to develop habits and actions that lead to career, business and relational success. Performance skills are broken down into step-by-step instructions with inspiring stories and examples, and each chapter ends with Action Steps.

Key Takeaways

Your habits will determine the quality of your life. The focusing strategies of successful people are:

1. Realising that habits determine your future
2. Focusing solely on what you do best
3. Seeing the big picture by taking time to design your life/future
4. Overcoming setbacks
5. Building excellent relationships
6. Having confidence and eliminating fear and worry
7. Asking for what you want
8. Practising consistent persistence
9. Taking decisive action
10. Living and working with purpose


This book was just okay; repetitive in places and plenty of very generic advice (eg set goals, write them down, be positive, change your perspective etc).

However, the Action Steps at the end of each chapter were a real value add and arguably the best part of the reading experience. A good book to spur reflection and (hopefully) action.
