He has established boards that include former heads of state, Nobel Peace Prize winners, and Fortune 500 CEOs, and has a track record of starting businesses from scratch and selling them for tens of millions of dollars.

Forget other goal-setting books, this is all you need

by ( 11/04/2014)

For entrepreneur and author Matthew Michaelewicz, the definition of success is simple: success is achieving goals.

More than many other writers on goal-setting, Michaelewicz deserves your ear. Hes a serial entrepreneur, having founded three successful companies. His last was the third fastest growing in Australia when he sold it in 2012 for tens of millions of dollars.

This awe-worthy experience means that the book is based on the exact goal-setting approach he used to achieve those successes.

He maps out his process using a metaphor of five doors: the Door of Clarity, the Door of Desire, the Door of Belief, the Door of Knowledge, and the Door of Action.

One of the biggest strengths of this book is Michaelewiczs humanity and likeability. You feel like youre sitting down for a coffee and having a chat with someone who really cares about your success.

Despite the sheer number of goal-setting books Ive read in seven years reviewing books for personal development magazines, Life in Half a Second stands out for its quality so much better than I expected.

Do you need to read it? If youre unsuccessful, lacking goals or failing to achieve them, the answer is absolutely yes.
