BOOK BLURB:
A strong reason why we fail to achieve our goals is our inability to comprehend our minds. We sometimes tend to over-commit to multiple goals and set ourselves up for failure or lose direction of where we want to go. History is important because it reminds us of mistakes from the past, the knowledge of which prevents us from repeating the same. Similarly, our personal history with goal-setting and goal-achievement is salient in understanding what we could have done better in the past, and implementing them into a more effective present and future.
Through this book, you will become aware of why you aren’t as effective in goal-setting and goal-achievement and how you can become the absolute best version of yourself. We will cover the wonderful art and science behind setting multiple goals and achieving them, and attempt to master the jugglery of balance in several aspects of our lives. Take this journey with me to truly understand how you can excel in multiple aspects of your life all at once. You can have your cake and eat it too.
Let’s walk the wire together!



BOOK REVIEW:

I picked this book at the right time, when I needed the motivation to achieve my goals. This is not like any other self-help books which keeps explaining difficult tools and techniques to apply in professional and personal life but this is a quick read with the best advises anyone can get to grow  professionally. The advises given in this book are simple and easy to apply in our life.

The book is divided into 4 different chapters which makes it really easy to understand the useful points author wants to explain to readers.

1.Too many distractions, too little substance
2.Dealing with the beast
3. Putting into practice
4. Finding Balance
Author focusses on first understanding balance in life, then importance of finding balance in life, finding the right goals, setting the right goals , to study the goals carefully and breaking them down into desired action reasons,why we fail to achieve the goals we set, identifying the existence of problem and finding the tools we need to overcome the problem. The book talks about role of perspectives , short-term goals and long-term goals. Author discusses the important aspects that are very critical to goal achievement. Time management, prioritization, building successful routines are some of the important aspects that are very well explained by Author.

This book will actually make you pause and think about what you are doing in your life , what goals you are chasing and how you should find balance in life.

I have learnt a lot from this book and will surely put these points into practice.

RATING: I would like to give it 5/5 stars.

"Walking the wire is a very fragile exercise because it doesn't take much to take us off balance. The key is to be aware of the variation and get back on the wire quickly." 

"The growth mindset on the other hand, projects characteristics such as the constant need to evolve, learning from one's mistakes, keeping their ego in check and wanting to be a far better person every day. To enhance this process of goal achievement and finding equilibrium, it is imperative that we strive to focus more on attaining a growth mindset and minimising the element of a fixed mindset that exists in each one of us in varying degrees.
