Publisher's Summary

This book is about “changing your habits". It is designed to trigger introspection and an inward evaluation that can trigger action to improve your personality, behavior, attitudes, communication skills, demeanor, and overall habits. Face your fears, and do it, anyway.

According to Paolo Coelho, “The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself,” and Eleanor Roosevelt adds, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

Don’t let your fears frustrate you, limit you, or - even worse - paralyze you. See fear as a warning light, not as a red light. I see it over and over again with my clients: Once they start doing what they fear, their fear goes away. Mark Twain knew this already, 100 years ago, when he said: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than with the ones that you did."

Face your fears. Ninety percent of them are pure imagination, anyway. Illusions! Incredible stories of drama and disaster that will probably never happen and are made up by your mind - “the world’s greatest director of soap operas” as T. Harv Eker calls it, to keep you in your comfort zone. The only problem is that great things like development, growth, and success happen outside of the comfort zone.

Fear is your mind’s survival mechanism. It wants to keep you safe, and anything that it doesn't know scares it. This was good thousands of years ago when you had to run from big predators to avoid getting eaten, but nowadays, most of the time, it hurts us. Most of the time, behind your fears, there will be great opportunities waiting for you, so make it a habit always to ask yourself: ”What’s the worst thing that can happen to me if I do this?" and evaluate if the risk is worth taking or not.

Be careful. There is also a price for not taking a risk or stepping out of your comfort zone.

A bit dull.

I have to break with the pack on this one. I guess I was hoping for a more detailed story about H.H. Holmes and his murder castle. It had the basic story, but I got more info about Holmes by listening to the Stuff I Missed in History podcast. It was well researched, but I kept feeling like I was in a history lecture. It wasn't a book that kept me wanting to listen. I slogged through it, but ended up feeling like it wasn't worth 14 hours of my time. I liked the description about the fair's opening day, and the disastrous smokestack fire, but honestly, those were the only two parts where I was on the edge of my seat.

Moving through a little at a time

I've been working my way through this audible book, a little at a time, taking what is relevant to me. I don't have tons of linens nor do I have huge closets but the concepts are the same regardless of the size of the storage and/or the quantity of the stuff to store. Pick up where you are and apply those concepts.

A nice kick in the pants seems like.

This is one of those audibles with a ton of chapters that takes some acquiring used to, but once you're done, you can see what the construction did for the substance.
