"168 Hours" By: Laura Vanderkam
There are 168 hours in a week. This book is about where the time really goes, and how we can all use it better. It's an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are starved for time. With the rise of two-income families, extreme jobs, and 24/7 connectivity, life is so frenzied we can barely find time to breathe. We tell ourselves we'd like to read more, get to the gym regularly, try new hobbies, and accomplish all kinds of goals. But then we give up because there just aren't enough hours to do it all. Or else, if we don't make excuses, we make sacrifices. To get ahead at work we spend less time with our spouses. To carve out more family time, we put off getting in shape. To train for a marathon, we cut back on sleep. There has to be a better way-and Laura Vanderkam has found one. After interviewing dozens of successful, happy people, she realized that they allocate their time differently than most of us. Instead of letting the daily grind crowd out the important stuff, they start by making sure there's time for the important stuff. They focus on what they do best and what only they can do. When plans go wrong and they run out of time, only their lesser priorities suffer. It's not always easy, but the payoff is enormous. Vanderkam shows that it really is possible to sleep eight hours a night, exercise five days a week, take piano lessons, and write a novel without giving up quality time for work, family, and other things that really matter. The key is to start with a blank slate and to fill up your 168 hours only with things that deserve your time. Of course, you probably won't read to your children at 2:00 am, or skip a Wednesday morning meeting to go hiking, but you can cut back on how much you watch TV, do laundry, or spend time on other less fulfilling activities. Vanderkam shares creative ways to rearrange your schedule to make room for the things that matter most. 168 Hours is a fun, inspiring, practical guide that will help men and women of any age, lifestyle, or career get the most out of their time and their lives.

What we're about

Are you ready to take your business and life to the next level? I know I am! I want to be a part of a dynamic group of motivated, success driven people who are willing to do the work to reap the rewards! You have heard it said that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. I am highly motivated to break through to new levels of success and want to find others local to the Woodstock area that are of "like mind".

Top list of books to read and "Master Mind" this year:

1. "Think And Grow Rich" Napoleon Hill. This book was first to suggest a "Mastermind Group".

The others listed here are suggestions (in no particular order) of the general direction to go after completing "TAGR":

"Eat That Frog", Brian Tracy

"The 15 Invaluable Laws Of Growth: Live Them And Reach Your Potential" John C. Maxwell

"Fierce Conversations", Susan Scott

"The Four Agreements", Don Miguel Ruiz

"The Fred Factor", Mark Sanborn

"The One Thing", Gary Keller

This list is a work in progress, like me (and hopefully you)! But each one is a quick read, highly motivational and packed full of ideas and strategies to help stay motivated at becoming the best you can be. The books are just a catalyst for the formation and growth of the "Master Mind" group. Meet every other Friday mornings at 7:30 am.
