If you haven't, consider skipping this book and read the original classic "the 7 habits of highly effective people".
The main content in this book is pretty much same. It's not a bad book, but the original was much better, you might consider to choose to spent your time wisely.
1) According to Tracy and Christina Stein (Tracy's daughter and co-author) , each of us has a balance point where we feel in perfect harmony, grounded, happy, connected to others, and where our mind, body and spirit are in alignment. As Tracy and Stein say, your balance point is when “You feel at one with the universe.” While I’ve never thought about it exactly this way, I agree.
2) Similar to living what I define as a SMART life, a balanced life is central our happiness and well-being. Finding it helps us avoid lives filled with too much to do, and feeling we have too little time to do it. On the other hand, having “false balance” throws people into addictions and over-consumption.
3) Unfortunately, there is no magic pill or quick-fix. Finding and maintaining our balance point takes time and effort.
4) Who you hang out with matters. Tracy and Stein boldly state that, “Fully 85 percent of your happiness will be determined by having the right people in your life.” While I too tend to believe this is true, I really wish they could have provided a reference behind this claim.
5) We all need meaning and purpose to live a happy and fulfilled life. According to Tracy and Stein, “Each person craves connection to others. Creating something that helps people or providing a service of some kind is one of the best ways to feel connected to something bigger than yourself.”
6) Stein and Tracy say, “In almost every study of successful, happy people, the acceptance of personal responsibility seems to be the starting point of a person’s success.”
7) Like the authors, I agree that it’s critical to stop doing things that take away our joy and satisfaction, and instead organize our lives around those things that bring us peace, satisfaction, joy and value. Their statement, time management is really “life management” deserves to be remembered.
8) I repeatedly say on SMART Living 365.com that, “Everyday we can choose to be happy, loving and live life to its fullest—remember, we get to make it up.” Tracy and Stein say something similar with, “You will be happy only when your choices and your activities are in harmony with your values and beliefs and with what is really important to you.
And while the book is light on references there are good reminders between the pages. About the only thing I didn't care for was how they injected some of the old productivity and goal setting information, along with time management. That felt more like filler than anything that helped create genuine balance in our lives. I think the book could have done without it.
Overall I think this book will appeal most to people who are beginning their search for a happier and more fulfilled life.
Authors Brain Tracy and Christina Stein lay out incredibly straightforward, digestible steps and exercises designed to get you started on tis journey. It’s a self-help book, so there is a fair amount of positive reinforcement layered throughout and it can come off corny at times, but that’s to be expected. Beneath the good vibes, their thesis sounds so incredibly simple and brilliant that it lands just like common sense: "Each person experiences true balance when she is operating at her own unique balance point."
So when you’re balanced, you’re balanced? Might not make a lot of sense at first glance, but the key word is “unique”. They don’t try to tell you there is one way to be productive, one way to organize your projects, and one way to lower your stress with deep breathing intervals. What Tracy and Stein attempt is to give you a workbook that allows you to design the process that works best for you and you only.
At this point in time, we have never before seen access to grow creatively, do any number of things we’ve always dreamed of, or turn the page and start an entirely new life. The internet connected us to unlimited amounts of information and like-minded people, which on one hand is amazing, but on the other hand is overwhelming. Sometimes the first step is finding out which of the innumerable things we dream of doing is really our true passion and building out our life from there. Once you’re there and everything else is directly connected or in support of that goal, that’s when you’ve found your balance point.
This book may not be the golden ticket to the nirvana you’re seeking in a currently hectic life, but it will undoubtedly give you some tips that will aid you along the way.
'Find Your Balance Point' is a quick read and I would recommend reading it through once, then going back and actually doing the exercises. That way you have a greater understanding of the goal and structure without being bogged down in worrying if you did the last assignment correctly.
