underwhelming at best

A very stereotypical book. I suggest Atomic habits instead, the concepts are very similar. Don't waste your credit on this book.

Straight forward tips on life from the big brother

The book has bought awareness to the simple things most people aren't conscious about and how to excel in those specific aspects of life. The narrator is the best amongst all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Thank you so much for the vital information and wish you all the best for the future.

  • Overall

very simple way of saying great things.

I heard about this book in a YouTube video and planned to give it a listen. However when I looked a the sample, I was disappointed because the narrator seemed too enthusiastic. But since there were not many narrators available, I decided to go with the available one.
Let me tell you what I loved about it:
I loved how it's broken down into very digestible fragments.
I love that it's written in a very simple and effective manner.

This is easily the fastest book I have completed on audible.

Thanks

Change your life with small steps

this book doesn't present any new science or discovery. What it preaches has long been known to us; it's the small things done consistently that make the difference

after reading this book, I had the urge to make changes in my life. This book was written well, well enough to give me the kick in the bum

if I had 1 criticism, it would be that the research done on this book wasn't deep enough to my liking. for example, when he talked about health, he usually referred to dr Oz.

Or when he talked about the time Oprah gave away a car to every audience member, saying that it was Oprah who went the extra mile when im fact that giveaway was fully sponsored by Pontiac to promote their new car model

Being a nut for proper facts it does bother me, but I wouldn't let that get in the way of me appreciating a well written book. Anyone who wants to change their life should read this

Remedial Read: Level 4th or 5th

Nothing profound or really insightful here. This book is basically a list of light stories about common sense subjects peppered with the usual “super achiever” quotes. I’m judging this book harsher because of this authors reference to Jim Rohn being his mentor. By that metric this book is super weak. Let me save everyone 4-6 hours of their lives and $15 by telling you that little incremental things add up to big things. Baby steps, persistence, accountability, choices, the end.

Wow.....

This book is enough to get anyone motivated and off their butt. It’s a book about reality and speaks honestly.
Once you’ve owned up to being in the place you’re in in your life because of choices you’ve made, it’s no one else’s fault, you will realise the world is your oyster and by being the exception you can and will become successful.
I will continue to listen to this book, it’s one of the best I’ve heard.
Thank you, Darren

Where are the summary action steps?

Most books like this either run through the summary action steps or provide a link where we can download them. With this audible you also need the physical book for part of the content. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great book and I love the simplicity of how the compound effect works and how it can be applied to my life but if I’d known that I needed the actual book then I wouldn’t have downloaded it.

The value that this book adds to your life is priceless. We already know deep down that our daily habits are what create our current reality, physical, financial, health, relationships and so on. The daily habits we do over time compound into the success/failures we encounter. Although we know this, we rarely practice this on a day to day basis in our lives. Habits are the foundation of all the results in our lives (Both positive and negative).

There are two ways that we can improve our lives daily:
1. Unlearn bad habits
2. Learn new good habits

We are always seeking quick fixes as a solution a diet, pill or a get rich scheme. The truth is that we are accountable for the results that we are getting in all aspects of our lives wether that be financially, physically, in our relationships and so on.

These micro actions add up to macro results over time. You may not see the results now but know under the surface progress is being made. Just like the story of the Chinese bamboo tree that doesn't even break through the ground in it's first four years of growth, then shoots up to over 90ft in just a few weeks.

For actionable advice that will literally change your life and perspective. LISTEN.TO.THIS.BOOK.

Slow and steady wins the race

This book has blown me away! I've listened to it twice in succession and I'm going to listen to it again.
It doesn't matter how small the steps are you are taking, it matters that you take those steps. Persistence and determination is what helps you achieve success. More importantly, never give up!

Same old story.

If you have read other motivational books then you have read this one. Same old ideas reimagined. Title doesn’t really reflect the subject matter either.
