This BOOK is just WOW
20 April 2019
First, the overall premise is not a bad idea. However:
The target audience of this book is someone who has never read any personal development books and views the whole genre suspiciously. For me, it smacked of a basic thesis, padded with a hasty potpourri of other people's ideas and coated with gushing "you can have the life of your dreams!" promises. I found myself having to skim through basic explanations of meditation and visualization to get at what Elrod was offering as far as original thinking.
If this were a blog post, not a 150 page book, I would probably have appreciated it more. The basic premise could be summarized thus:
To improve our lives, we must improve ourselves
The morning is the best time for self improvement (have energy, quiet, easier to make time)
Spending an hour doing a little of few good practices goes a lot way to self improvement
Those exercises are:
Visualization of the day ahead
Reading, particularly to learn something
Scriving (aka Writing, journaling)
10 minutes each.
I'm going to try this general idea because I don't think it is bad; I just wish I didn't have to slog through so much text for so little information.
