Write It Down, Make It Happen: Knowing What You Want and Getting It
Write It Down Make It Happen Knowing What You Want and Getting It Author:Henriette Anne Klauser Too often, people drift through life with a vague sense of uneasiness, living in the antechamber, longing to find some adventure or purpose in life, envious of those whose lives seem exciting. In Write It Down, Make It Happen, Henriette Anne Klauser, Ph.D., shows you how to write your own lifescript. Simply writing down your goals in li... more »fe is the first step toward achieving them.
The "writing it down" part is not about time management; it's not a "to-do today" list that will make you feel guilty if you don't get every single thing done. Rather, writing it down is about clearing your head, identifying what you want, and setting your intent. You can "make it happen" purely by believing in the possibility.
There is no "right way" to write a goal down -- a single line jotted on a scrap of paper is as valuable as a full-blown description of the goal that goes on for several pages. Once you state your goals in writing, the rest of the world can cooperate with your ambition -- from grand career goals and major moves to having a better relationship with a teenage son, or simply waking up in the morning happy.
In Write It Down, Make It Happen, you will read stories from ordinary people who witnessed miracles large and small unfold in their lives after they performed the basic act of putting their goals on paper. Dr. Klauser also includes practical exercises and tips on how you can use writing to understand what you want and become a proactive force in your own destiny.
I've been following some of her advice and I do think it works. Writing thoughts, goals, and dreams down makes it concrete and brings clarity. It opens your brain to seeing opportunities it normally would not notice.
Here is another self-help book that didn't need to be written. The useful information could be summerized in a phamplet, if so much - the cover would be sufficient. Why this writing style is so popular is beyond my comprehension (maybe because people like me keep picking them up...AHHH!!!). The use of filler "stories" are quite uneccessary if the author has something unique or interesting to say, but in most of these books it is just a rehash of the same basic information. If this is the first of this type of book you are reading you may find some of it interesting and useful, but that is being generous, but, if you have read any other self-help book remotely similar, don't even waste your time.
