- A necessary and empowering read by Emilie on 3/4/2016
Living Forward is a necessary book for anyone interested in taking control over the trajectory of their future in both the personal and professional spheres!
I wasn't sure what to expect when I received Living Forward in the mail. I just knew that I had been following Michael Hyatt's blog for a little over a year and that he had formerly been the CEO of Thomas Nelson. I was more than pleasantly surprised.
Michael and Daniel have come together to create an in-depth solution to something that plagues our society. They could call it "the drift". I realize I suffer from it to an extent as well, and the minute I started in on Living Forward I knew it was just the right book for this time in my life.
Basically, Living Forward is about Life Planning and thinking ahead to the future in order to plan out the present. No, it's not about putting yourself in God's place and figuring out your life yourself. In fact, done the right way, it hinges on God's involvement in the process and His sustaining power to live the plan out.
The book is quick--10 chapters that are easy to read and understand--and includes a lot of "extras" in the back to help you start and live out your Life Plan. I found myself reading with a highlighter and sticky tabs just to make sure I knew where to come back to. As it is right now, I'll be planning a day where I can create my own life plan.
I also really enjoyed Michale and Daniel's personal stories. They obviously live out what they've shared in the book and it isn't something that's just an "ideal" for them. They are working hard to live out their life plan and they share their wins and losses along the way too.
I definitely recommend this book to all types of people. You don't need to be a CEO of a large company to create a Life Plan. I think stay-at-home moms, corporate workers, freelancers, non-profit workers, or high school teachers (just to name a few job areas) would benefit from this. Why? Because Life Planning is ultimately not about success being defined as making a lot of money and having a prestigious job. It's about balance. It's about being satisfied in your work life as well as your home life. It's about having something to head toward and putting in the diligent work to get there. Pick up a copy of this book and take control over your future.
