    As the painful year of 2016 nears its end and I'm feeling physically (almost) well again, I wanted a boost to propel me to the end of the year and keep me flying (I'll be happy with hurtling) along in 2017.I would normally have avoided such a cheesily titled book but a number of people mentioned that it was helpful and in my flailing desire for some help, I ordered late one night from Amazon. The content was somewhat better than I had expected and I thought the book had decent practical exercises (rather than being shallow clickbait-buzzfeed style nonsense). I liked the book's approach of looking at the various roles we have in our life and how they relate to our values. In writing all the roles down, I can understand why I felt overwhelmed in my business. I also thought the final one page summary of:GuidelinesNew ParadigmMajor FocusTop Ten Goals - written as process goals that are under our controlwould be especially useful when times are tough and we need to hunker down. Given my propensity to mentally self-flagellate, I reckon it will be useful to see my guidelines and new paradigm regularly. And it was helpful that it took a reasonable amount of reflection and answering of questions (far more than 10 when you include all the sub-questions under each of those main chapter-heading questions) to get to that final summary.I've worked through the book and I'm going to come back and review my overall plan again before the end of the year.I'll report back at the end of 2017!

    I might be the wrong reader for this one. I got through the first step, listing your accomplishments and stuff you're proud of, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, from the previous year, and I'd filled a legal pad. I turned the page in 'Your Best Year Yet' and learned that people have trouble remembering three or four things for that list of what makes them proud (and it should be empowering to do so, therefore a great encouragement to start the bigger project). I took a look at my enormous scroll and decided I was already awesome. (I wasn't raised on Zig Ziglar for nothing! Thanks, Dad). It was tough to focus then on the next steps, list your disappointments, list your limiting beliefs, turn your limiting beliefs into actions for improvement... I spent three days trying to phrase the actions right but finally decided (again) I was already pretty ok with things. So I guess that's not a bad result.By the way, I loved the back story of Jinny Ditzler and her husband Tim -- two Americans in England long-term -- folks after my own heart. I do think this is a great book and it fills a real need. For right now though, I guess it's not my need. Though if Jinny D comes to Switzerland and does her three-hour workshop, I'd be tempted.

    The metaphor on page 10 sums up the intent of this book nicely: "while we wouldn't think of getting in a car and not knowing where we were going ... we gradually become passengers in our own lives. Years go by and we never get out of the car to see how it's doing or where it's going. We simply sit in the backseat preoccupied by our busy, busy lives, which are moving too fast to allow time to stop the car, take stock, consider alternate routes, or set goals to change direction -- in short, to get back into the driver seat."

    Easy to read and inspiring. I've already started some of the work to make 2018 my best year yet and this book was very inspirational in how to identify what my values are and my roles in life so I can align my future goals to them. I'm excited to finish setting my goals and checking in throughout the next year to see how I'm doing.

    I like books that challenge me to take a good look into myself and discover things I am not usually aware of. Though a simple exercise, aswering these ten questions really brought some new information to the surface. Have a go, discover what lies inside of you.

    This is a great read, especially for Dec/ Jan, when it's an excellent time of the year to review your year and set your intention and direction for the new year.I particularly liked Jinny's style of asking 10 questions, rather than telling you what you "should" set as goals for the new year. They're simple, but powerful questions. And they're the right kind of smart questions that open up your thinking and help with problem-solving.A highly recommended read - simple, straight to the point, low on fluff, solid stuff.You can get the Bottom-line on Your Best Year Yet, along with my interview with the author, Jinny Ditzler, over at The Bottom-line Bookclub:

    I have "done" this book a couple of times and, although I have never finished a full year of working on my goals in the YBYY way, I have found that some goals work their way into my lifestyle and sometimes just "seem to happen" later. Having said that, I follow a different goal setting system now. I found having ten goals to work on in one way, stressful and in another way, limiting. It was as if, by focussing on the written YBYY goals, other things in my life weren't as important; and if I didn't achieve my weekly and monthly targets I was failing as a person.I have realised that I am a bit of an all or nothing girl and I do better focussing on one or two goals and getting them done - when I am ready - which leads one on to books about procrastinating.

    Bar none, the best tool I've found for unearthing goals and mapping out plans to turn them into reality. I used it to help me commit to doing my 50-for-50 project this year; I've used it to do everything from successfully increasing my book reading (78 in 2010, 80 in 2011) to ditching spent relationships. A warning: it takes far, far longer than her suggested 3-4 hours to read through and do the exercises. Like, 2 weeks longer. But the program itself is sound. She and her husband developed it themselves, then test-drove it in hundreds of workshops. It's kind of a holistic, year-long version of The Artist's Way, minus the woowoo.

    This is a great little book! I used it for first time few years ago, and was really impressed with the results. Well, of course, it won't work out of nothing. I mean, if you really want to see good results, you need to do the workshop, make your own plan, then work on weekly, montly, etc. plans.The book is priceless at giving well structured information on how to build your own year plan by answering few simple questions. It helps you concentrate more on the result you want to achieve at the end of the year rather than writing a regular TO DO list.Also, it includes many examples that help the reader better understand the whole idea behind Best Year Yet plan.

    Indeed, as my friend Ruth notes, this echoes the work of Stephen Covey and Norman Vincent Peale. Good stuff, but available elsewhere. Yet, I like the author's straightforward style...none of Covey's shopworn corporatespeak, and more action-oriented than Peale, who tends to fall into the think-it-and-it-will-come camp. This book pulls it all together into an easy-to-follow plan and I don't need the $150 leatherette, three-ring agenda to make it happen. This I can appreciate.

    What I love about this book is that it's not just about setting goals -- it encourages us to set goals according to our personal values, so that when we hit the rugged spots on the way to our goal (which is inevitable), we know why the heck we're doing this! Since I sometimes have trouble remembering the big picture, this book gave me exactly what I needed.

    A friend said this program changed her life and she has used it for quite a few years now. It will be a while before I can evaluate it, but I found the plan well thought out. I like the idea of aligning goals with personal values and the strategies for implementation sound promising.

    أفضل سنة في عمرك الآن ، أنصح بالكتاب باللغة الإنجليزية لأن الترجمة سيئة لدرجة لاتوصف !ترجمة قوقل ستحصل على المرتبة الأولى مقارنة بالترجمة الموجودة .حاولت قراءة الكتاب سابقًا وتوقفت ظنًا ان المحتوى ممل لكن الآن تأكدت انه خطأ الترجمة .بخلاف ذلك ، التجربة كانت -ولازالت- مسليّة ومفيدة جداً .يحتوي الكتاب على عشرة أسئلة لكل سؤال فصل قصير يشرح كيفية الإجابة عنه وكيف نحقق الإستفادة من الاجابة فالموضوع ليس جلداً للذات فقط ، نريد أن نحقق الفائدة حتى وإن كانت من ذكر العيوب والمساوئ .بالنسبة للاسئلة فهي كالتالي :1-مالذي حققته ؟2-ماهي أكبر إخفاقاتي ؟3- مالذي تعلمته ؟4- كيف أضع حدًا لنفسي ؟ وكيف أتمكن من التوقف؟5- مالقيم الشخصية الموجودة لدي؟6-مالأدوار التي أقوم بها في حياتي؟7-مالدور الذي سوف أركز عليه بصورة أساسية في العام القادم؟8-مالأهداف الخاصة بكل دور من هذه الأدوار؟9-ما أهم عشرة أهداف للعام القادم؟10-كيف أتحقق من أنني قد قمت بتنفيذ هذه الأهداف؟وفصل أخير لورشة العمل وتجارب بعض الأشخاص .لكل سؤال من هذه الاسئلة فقرات توضيحية وأسئلة فرعية للوصول للجواب الصحيح وأمثلة لأجوبة بعض الاشخاص .تجربتي الشخصية ، قررت وضع مهمة من عشرة أيام لهذا الكتاب .تمت القراءة الآن و أضفت فقرة صباحية يومية للإجابة عن سؤال واحد ، وأنهيت هذا الصباح الإجابة عن السؤال الرابع ،حاولت الإجابة على كل سؤال بتعداد عشرة امور ،لم أستطع دائماً ايجاد عشرة اجابات لكن القائمة قابة للتعديل دائمًا وعلى مدار السنة .أيضاً بدلًا من الإجابة في مفكرة أو على ورق أرسلت إجاباتي لمذكرتي اليومية على موقع .لاتزال التجربة مستمرة وأتمنى ان أخرج منها بفائدة .الكتاب فعلًا ممتع ،وأنصحكم به لكن فقط ليس بهذه الترجمة .

    Best goal setting book ever for me. Her 10 questions can really lead you down the rabbit hole and it is no joke when you are advise close yourself off in a room by yourself so that you truly can reflect and acknowledge the you at that time. It can keep you focused and believe it or not even if you are not religiously sticking to the suggestions of how to manage your goals you will find you still achieved them in some small way. The book frankly saved me and my family. I read it at the right time to get started in college. As a single mother at the time with two young boys it was scary to start back on that journey. Jinny's book not only helped me to focus to get through my first degree but through two others since and I am using her principals now to get through a Master's program.

    This book provides the best structured foundation to goal setting for a general audience of any title I have encountered. It gradually builds a series of slightly related questions into a framework that is then progressively built into an actionable list of goals. The end result is a single page (often just 18 lines of written text) that define the top goals and priorities for the coming year. Despite the books claim that the process can be completed in a mere 3 hours, the first time through can easily take closer to 9 hours to complete. Highly recommended

    The process that Ditzler designed and uses is excellent. It is very similar to others I have seen and used, but with a few twists that make you think about goals that are aligned with your motivation and helps you to focus on what are the most important things for you to do to meet goals.I went through the process for this year, and plan to use it for my team and coaching clients in the future.

    A conversation with a colleague reminded me that it is time to either purchase or dig this book back out. It's a great annual process to harvest what this year taught us and prepare for the New Year in a focused and deliberate way.I've used this book and method each January over the past 10+ years. It provides an integrated and whole life approach to creating clear focus areas and goals for the year. It works if YOU work it!

    This book borrows VERY heavily from Steven Covey and Norman Vincent Peale. VERY. especially in terms of being positive (be proactive) and different spheres of your life and how you have different roles in life and to make goals that relate to your specific roles.. I found nothing new here that I hadn't read before; which is not to say its not a useful book, but definitely for me, a re-hash of stuff I've already read.

    I did this half hartedly last year and didnt get great results. this time I put in gthe effort read it cover to cocver and did a good long workshop session and figured out what I want. I now have 10 goals I am excited about. and a plan to dramatically. improve my life. not taht my life is bad. teh good outweighs the bad but the few really bad things in my life I can now see being resolved. whether I reach my goals remains to be seen though

    In addition to using the features in this book personally, each of our three children have completed the exercises in this book AND recommended it to their friends. This book is the BEST book in helping you identify, set and MAKE realistic annual goals in a step-by-step method. I read it every year.

    En bra handbok som hjälper en att fundera på målsättningar i ens eget liv. Vissa frågor kändes kanske en aning tradiga (sammanlagt 10 frågor en ska svara på), men det fanns mycket i boken som satte hjärnan i gång. Rekommenderar för alla som vill ta ett fastare grepp om sitt liv och sluta "flyta omkring". Rekommenderar inte för folk som tycker det här låter som tjafs, hehe!

    I actually did this as a class, and haven't read the book. However, the class was so amazing and clarifying, that I think the book must be even more empowering and I'm not normally a self-helpy person. It is incredibly uplifting to distill your definition of success into simple tasks that you can actually do! Every day! It really makes everything feel much less daunting.

    The title's a bit over the top, but I'm a fan of asking good questions (I do it professionally!) so I'd like to read it.
