Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Are you leading the life you want? Or could you be living a happier, more successful life?

 

If you've picked up this book, then - like a huge number of people today - you want to improve your life for the better. Maybe you're at a crossroads or your personal life has changed and you're not sure where to go next? Whatever your circumstances, you know you want to change.

 

Great. But, don't just think it - do it!

 

Changing your life does not have to be a daunting process. All you need to remember, is that the key to successful life change is lots of small, but positive steps, that together create huge impact. The Life Plan contains 700 of these small steps, leading you step by step through each area of your life.

 

The Life Plan is your key to a new you. A step-by-step checklist process that allows you to review and improve every aspect of your life. It will become an invaluable source of reference as it delivers a set of simple, practical, often amusing - but most importantly - achievable tips on success, wealth, health, stress, relationships and your career.

 

Personal development should not be like a trip to the dentist; something you endure to free yourself of pain. It should be more like a holiday, helping you create the opportunity to try new things. There's nothing here you won't enjoy.

 

The Life Plan will not only provide soul-searching questions that are specific and personal to you, it will help you find the answers too. Refer to it whenever doubt or choice confronts you, and discover what success looks like to you. Work out how you want to be viewed by those around you. Define a clear vision for the rest of your life. Discover the things about yourself and your world that you passionately want to change. Find out how to successfully campaign for what you believe is right. Become more influential, and as Ghandi said: 'be the change you want to see'.
