“Your Best Year Ever” by Michael Hyatt
We think this title seems appropriate for December and January. At least, those are the months in which we tend to make revolutionary decisions. Just think about it: how many times have we decided we’re going to stop smoking, exercise more, and spend more time with our family just around New Year’s Eve? And how many times have we failed to stick to our decisions? If the answer is anywhere close to “too many” then this book is the right fit for you.
“Your Best Year Ever” talks about setting goals and achievements, both at home and at work. It teaches us how to stop getting stuck in our day-to-day problems and makes us realize what really matters.
“This can be the year you finally close the gap between reality and your dreams.”
