Do you feel trapped by your own plans, expectations, and priorities?
As a CPA, successful entrepreneur, consultant, volunteer, husband, father, and martial arts enthusiast, author Bill Reeb knows first–hand how easy it is to let your own goals and ideas keep you from moving forward. He s spent years analysing the roadblocks he regularly encounters in his own life, in addition to the obstacles that he sees his high–achieving clients struggle with on a daily basis.
Drawing on his experience as a leading business consultant and his years of martial arts training, Reeb developed a logical and dynamic process for getting more out of life and avoiding the pitfalls that are often part and parcel with a high–achievement mind set.
Being stuck takes on many forms, from simply failing to change course when you know you should, to circumstances that are complicated by family commitments and financial constraints. Reeb s process of replanning, reprioritizing, and reaffirming is flexible enough to apply to any barrier, big or small, that you run into.
Rely on the advice and tools in this book to help you:
  • Determine what drives you
  • Recognize the early signs of being stuck
  • Learn to work better instead of harder
  • Balance conflicting priorities
  • Set boundaries
  • Manage your time
  • Align what you think with what you do
  • Move past roadblocks
  • Derive a greater sense of fulfilment from what you take on in life
