I really wanted to like this book and to be fair it does have some valid points; however, the author really drags out a simple concept.

It's a very wordy book, which takes away from his main point, small actions add up over time. bad habits add up over time.

I found it boring and had to force myself to finish it, the book could have been half the size and would have been more impactful.

Despite the author's business background, this is actually a well-written book. The focus on philosophy around the mundane, insignificant, easy-to-do, easy-not-to-do actions we take each day is enlightening. I would recommend it as a reading for anyone who wants a better understanding of how important their daily actions can be.

A whole book about a topic I have seen sufficiently covered in a few pages in other books. I don't buy the idea that what this book espouses constitutes a proper/full philosophy to work off. This more like a deep dive into one idea that is good to understand, and simple- worth reading if you like this kind of thing.

The book is easy to read and provides a framework for a simple action-plan to get you started on your goals. It explains how small simple habits repeated consistently over time will lead to success, as you define it for yourself. Or simple errors in judgement repeated over time will break you.

Some of my favourite quotes from the book:

" A surefire way to be forced to live as a prisoner of your past is not to complete things."

"It's the last 20 percent of the time we invest in a discipline that all the rewards come."

" When you take shortcuts, they expose you."

"Do the thing and have the power."

Highly recommended read. It's the day to day things that go unnoticed which add up over time to get you where you want to go.
