I started this book back in August. It is not a book that should be read in once sitting or even in one week. To use it properly and absorb and apply what is in this book you really need to read just one chapter a week and practice the ideas and suggestions. That should take 8 weeks but I think I’m a slow learner and am on the 8 month plan. I started off well for the first two weeks and then life happened. I had to laugh and shake my head because Connie has a section in the books that says Caveat: Beware the Two-Week Bomb:

Somewhere between two and three week, life will throw you a curve ball, often many. No one knows why; it’s one of those Bermuda Triangle things. Personally, I believe it’s good old-fashioned opposition to prevent you from making a life-improving change.

It took me a good month to recover from the curve ball life threw me and then I started again… only to have another curve ball thrown at me. I guess that really is how life goes, at least my life anyway.  But I’ve learned that once the waves settle I can pick my self back up and start again.  Hopefully through the process I’m improving and becoming a better person.

If you are looking for a book to help get you moving in the right direction as far as goals and self-improvement give this one a try.  It is written by an LDS author and has quotes from LDS leaders but I don’t think you need be LDS to enjoy and benefit from this book.
