Review: Find Your Balance Point by Brian Tracy and Christina Stein

Accomplish what matters most

Because we all have too much to do, it feels like our lives are out of balance.

But Brian Tracy and Christina Stein argue that imbalance results not so much from doing too much but from doing too much of the wrong things.

They provide a process that enables you to sort out what is most important to you from among the many activities you could focus on.

When you can efficiently identify and accomplish what really matters to you, you've found your balance point.

Received for review

Having read Kiss That Frog! I was excited to receive this latest volume by the authors. It’s a slim volume that is quickly finished but that doesn’t take away from its message.

The idea the book promotes is that you need to know what your values are before you can even begin to flesh out what you want to do with your life. If you don’t know why you are doing something it’s just not worth it. This discussion of figuring out just what matters most to you in your life is certainly not new but it’s presented in such a way to make it easy for the reader to look into their own motivations through quizzes and other techniques.

The text is well written with a nice, quick pace that makes reading it a breeze. The authors use a very friendly, casual tone which makes the experience feel less clinical.

Overall, while the ideas and exercises are nothing groundbreaking this is a solid read either as a refresher on the materials which one can use to clarify their own values and goals or as a great introduction to the subject. Either way, this is a fast, beneficial read which should be appreciated by those who focus on self-improvement.
