Are self-help books helping you?
- Jan 18th 2017
- The most important part of reading a book is to understand & decide what is your agenda with this book. You might find different messages in the same book if you have a different agenda.
- Once you have read something which you like and think that is going to help you change, then open an excel sheet and write that change down. If the change is "to start working on a diet", then write that down.
- Then every day at the end of the day, give yourself a rating (1-10, 10 being highest). A 1 would mean you did not spend a second on that activity. 10 would mean that you spent decent amount of time (your definition of decent!). Remember nobody else is looking at this. So giving this rating is for yourself and not just to feel good.
- Do this for at least 30 days. You can do this as long as you like :)
