I received a copy of “Make Success Mandatory” through Fitfluential. I have not been compensated for this review – and all opinions are my own. (Amazon links may be affiliate links, though. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive compensation. See my disclosure page for more info.)
(I totally know this is Thursday and not a true WIRW post, but I had all of the intentions of posting it yesterday and didn’t want to wait another week!)
In addition to all of the other books I’ve been racing through, I’ve had “Make Success Mandatory” by Jeremy Scott on my nightstand. The entire title of the book is “Make Success Mandatory: Discovering Your Gift & Giving It Back To The World“. I’ve been wanting to immerse myself with more positive reading, and I’ve been trying to read more books and articles that I can apply to my day job (director of alumni relations – a field that I still find very, very new.)
This book has been a really quick read, although it’s taken me some time to get to it with everything else going on. It’s been easy to skip around chapters. My favorite chapter was Exercise 18: Write it down: Make a list check it twice. I’m a list maker. I have post-its all over my desk (which I think drives my colleagues crazy) and I feel accomplished when I can check items off my lists. In this exercise, Jeremy Scott encourages you to schedule your workouts if exercise is important to you.
I kind of already do this. At least 3 days during the week, I’m working out during my lunch hour. It’s the best time within my schedule and I’ve made exercise a priority.
Exercise 4 in the book is Stop Worrying & Wishing. This basically applies to everything in my life right now and he makes a good point with this: “What good has worrying ever really done for you?”
He has a point!
The whole book is positive and just what I needed during a very hectic time. I’ll be recommending it to many friends and family members – and colleagues!
(Hey, Kindle readers, you can get the book for $2.99. A total deal!!)
