Dave Lakhani offers a brilliant solution in this book.Get it and take the cure-you'll be surprised how much better you feel!" -David Garfinkel, author, Customers on Demand Reviews I first heard Dave Lakhani on a teleseminar eradicating and exposing "The Secret" in Spring 2007 in conjunction with internationally best-selling author, Kevin Hogan, and with Blair Warren.
Dave has a fascinating background with his cult upbringing and LIVING in an uber persuasive environment.
When you take ONE HOUR AT TIME perspective on not only your TIME MANAGEMENT but on your TIME PRODUCTIVITY you will find Dave's book highly beneficial for your business as well as your personal life.
I first read his Persuasion: The Art of Getting What You Want in the Autumn of 2007.
A girlfriend lent me her copy of PoH and I have to say as a Dating and Relationship Expert that Lakhani's Chapter 4 on RELATIONSHIPS, The Law of Association, and evaluating with whom we invest the precious TIME of our lives is spot on. While initially a friend lent me their own copy for my first read of PoH, really, I did have to go grab my own copy of Lakhani's great book on productivity to have in my OWN library.
Whether you are looking to be more productive with you sales job, your business, or your business and romantic relationships, you will want to pick up PoH for you and your team and implement them for life success.
Reviews I found this book to be be repetitive, fluffy and lacking in practical suggestions. I felt like he was saying, in order order to focus on what you're doing, just focus until the task is done. He doesn't give suggestions on how to facilitate getting into the "zone" except intuitive things like being in a quiet place with your phone off. He doesn't give suggestions on how to manage workflow. The trademarked Fearsome Focus concept seemed pretty watery to me, a marketing ploy on the author/publisher's part that isn't worth its fanfare. David Allen's "Getting Things Done" Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, on the other hand, is chock-full of non-intuitive practical suggestions that could give us a chance of actually changing our habits and productivity levels. Reviews I am always on the lookout for books that can help me be more productive and to accomplish more during my day. This book provides a systematic approach to making changes that can be applied in only an hour. Think about it, we all complain we never have enough time to get to the really big things in our lives so we spend the majority of our existence doing the minor things. We procrastinate and avoid the tough things like working on ourselves, our relationships and our business or career.
The Power of An Hour: Business and Life Mastery in One Hour A Week shows us that our excuse of never having enough time is just that, an excuse. We can accomplish an enormous amount if we simply approach the changes we need to make with a plan and stay focused.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be more productive. It is broken into two parts, personal and business, and provides a framework we can use to build better and more fulfilling lives. I really enjoyed it. Reviews This is for sure an easy read very suitable for business executives who long for improvement amidst their busy work life. Apparently the 23 chapters (with great summaries and questions in each of them) which can be read independently are real quick fixes. The problem is: Self improvement always comes with change, which is very difficult unless readers already own the mindset or the urge to confront their own psychological blockades and to take action. The author had definitely provided the tools, but not the fuel nor the inspirations. If you seldom read self improvement books at all and you want to learn acquire some tools, this is helpful. If you had already read more than three, please give this a pass.
p.s. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference.
45 minutes are spent in Fearsome Focus and 15 minutes are spent at the end of the hour doing necessary nonfocus activities like returning e-mail......You must be ruthless in following the 45/15 rule. pg 7
By asking yourself to frame your answers in someone else's voice and ideology you'll come up with new ideas. Are you channelling Einstein? Of course not; you are simply giving your brain permission to work outside the normal set of boundaries and structures that you use to keep it reigned in. pg 31
It is imperative that you identify the energy thieves early and either exorcise them from your life or, at minimum, control their impact by giving them only limited access. pg 64
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare. Japanese proverb. pg 99
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do. - Epictetus pg 101
There is only one success - to spend your lfie in your own way. - Christopher Morley pg 103
Reviews Intense writing, with a perfect blueprint for making a better life.Helped me FINALLY get organized!!! One of the best books on this subject, and written from a different perspective (that of just using an hour a day to get there)....that makes sense to the truly busy person!!!
