Kurzbeschreibung

The day for change is today and it's more simple than you realize.

Most people sleepwalk through day-to-day life, passively letting time slip away.  Unfortunately, the only thing that can usually wake people up to the intensity of life is impending death.  But what if it didn't have to be that way?  20,000 Days presents breathtakingly simple strategies and concepts that, once applied, will enable readers to be 100% present and intentional with every passing minute of every day, for the rest of their lives.

The book is designed to be read in under an hour and the effect is immediate.  Within each segment are tactics for mastering control for your life; principles such as:
  • Motivation is a myth
  • You only have two choices, yes and no
  • How to conquer rejection forever
  • How BECOMING the problem will SOLVE all your problems
  • Three sentences that will change your life immediately
These timeless principles apply to everyone from the pending graduate to the seasoned business professional; from the time-starved parent to the weary pastor to the restless entrepreneur.

On the 20,000th day of his life, the author sent an email that inspired and reminded a group of people of all ages to live in the moment.  This group now includes you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Motivation is a myth - I get that now! 12. Dezember 2012
Von CS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is chock full of simple yet truly thought- (and life-) altering principles for becoming a more productive individual in the life we live, with a view towards an eternity that we'll have no reason to dread. I usually shun self-help and motivational type books but I am glad I read this one. Although not featuring Scripture throughout for the most part, the author shares key Scriptures at the beginning on the wisdom of numbering our days and other similar biblical exhortations. This provides a great foundation for the principles shared. Each chapter is preceded by salient quotations on the topic of Time and Productivity from past voices which were so gripping that I highlighted almost all of them.

Of all the principles shared the one that jumped out at me most was `Motivation is a myth.' The author says:

"Believe me. You cannot motivate people to do any one thing. Even yourself. Never try to motivate yourself or anyone else to increase productivity. Instead, do the opposite: Increase your productivity, then the motivation will follow.

I reflected on my own experiences and could see the truth in this. My attempts at motivation in itself have often been very short-lived to downright failures. However, whenever I did just set my mind to it and accomplish a task, I found I was more likely to feel satisfied and attempt another.

Because I was also intrigued by the author's calculation of his days lived thus far, I followed the information provided to the author's website where I was able to input my birth date for a calculation of how many thousands of days I've been alive. It really does bring perspective if you will soak it in and be reflective!

The author says that the book was designed to be read in about an hour. I am not a slow reader and I did use just a few minutes at points to re-read key points and reflect on my own experiences, but this took me about 2 hours to finish in one sitting. If the topic is of particular interest to you and you intend to see how these tips can be applied to your own life, I reckon you will also need more than one hour to finish it.

If you struggle with a feeling of purposeless, procrastination, or just a nagging sense of not living up to your full potential despite some achievements, this book would be an asset to you. But reading it won't be enough; you will also have to choose differently in your everyday life to see changes - Or as another principle in this book states: `You only have two choices, yes and no. I recommend 20,000 Days And Counting and give it 5 of 5 stars in its genre.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Common sense wisdom to stop procrastinating and start living purposefully 7. Februar 2013
Von cksheng74 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This little book by Robert Smith is really a common sense book about beating procrastination and start living life as if everyday is a last day for us on earth. This book reminds us that we are always, very literally, only one step away from dying, from meeting our Creator face to face. Any moment. Any day. Anywhere. Consequently, there is a need to always ask ourselves the question of what is our purpose of life here. As Robert says: "..... I felt a pressing desire to accomplish these little things--make a phone call, write a letter, research an idea--as soon as they occurred to me. I constantly asked myself, What is important now? What is next? I could never escape those two questions as they spun around in my mind. To this day, those same two questions keep me up late, get me up early, and create a never-ending quest of enormous possibilities and accomplishments. In truth, I never really want to be finished, though I am aware that one day, it will all end. But not yet."

As Robert alluded that there is no thought that will purge our priorities of worthless and worldly tastes like the thought of our impending death. Daily pondering of the kind of life we would like to look back on when we come to die helps us to re-focus our priorities daily. The thought of imminent death helps clarify our purposes, a rearranging of what really matters. A good example would be testimonies of people having near-death experiences and then making radical changes in their lives.

However, the reason why most people are unable to live with this mentality of living as if today is the last day is that it's tough. It takes discipline, patience, and even courage because it requires you to live in a way that is contrary to how the majority of people around you are living their lives.

Nonetheless, Robert also reminds us that it is the little things that add up to the big picture. Do not wait for impending death to light the fire of action inside yourself. Act today. Start small. There are opportunities hiding in the "day-to-day."

We may not always feel motivated to live purposefully; however, psychologist William James (as quoted in the book) believed that "we don't sing because we're happy; we're happy because we sing."

2.0 von 5 Sternen "Carpe Diem".... or "Crappy Diem"?? 5. Januar 2013
Von Kevin Quinley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"20,000 Days" is an idea that was pumped up with hot air and stretched into something that is long enough to be called a book. Seize the day. Treasure the moment. Enjoy the present. Live each day as if it was your last.

Do we need 100 pages -- much of it quotes and "filler" to understand that?

Please.

I received this book as a Christmas gift. It was on my Wish List. After I started reading it, I thought to myself, "You have got to be kidding me!" I realize that my review may be an outlier here, but I cannot drink the Kool-Aid.

On the plus side: it is a quick read.

On the minus side: the author's passion is laudable but the content borders on the insipid.

"20,000 Days..." is like chicken soup for your life outlook. It won't hurt. It may help. It is a time-worn (and valid) concept dressed up as a book, a thesis that could have been developed in a few sentences or paragraph.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Liked the content, disappointed in length. 19. Januar 2013
Von trainerdg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I read the raving reviews on-line and purchased the book. Although I gained some good insights from the book, this is more like a booklet. It took me about 30 minutes to read. It is priced way too high. It should be a free ebook or priced like similar items around 2.99.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Counting remarkable! 31. Dezember 2012
Von Chris Thomason - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Remarkable is a great word for this book and for Robert D. Smith! His ability to instill, infect, and restore hope with 20,000 Days and counting is remarkable. After reading I began to immediately recommend it to friends and family. The numbering of our days toward the positive should be all of our goal! Thanks Robert for not only the reminder but the tools to practically apply this to our lives!
