2.0 von 5 Sternen Trivialities served with incredible pomp 28. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Imagine Coca-Cola served in a golden beaker, presented to you as a wonder medicine that cures all the diseases. That's what this book's like.
The book tells a story of a man who, despite of his tremendous professional success, feels empty and unhappy. He meets a professor who introduces to him a way of becoming an On-Purpose Person - finding a purpose in one's life.
Sounds great, you say. There, that's the golden beaker I was talking about. The actual contents of the book are very banal. The first sixty-something pages are dedicated to a vague presentation of a most primitive goal setting and selection system: 1. write down all the things you want that you can think of; 2. choose the things you want most. And yes, Mr. McCarthy actually manages to waste sixty pages on that! Of course, this shouldn't make you think that he's very thorough or detailed or something. Roughly 80 % of his text is just the hero driving around and hearing how good the new system is and thinking how happy he feels. In the remaining 20 %, Mr. McCarthy actually describes the system in a very wordy, but unfortunately not at all in a systematic or comprehensive way. The system itself contains nothing new, compared to the one presented by Raymond Hull in his book How To Get What You Want thirty years ago. I've been doing things like that for years, I kept writing want lists, prioritizing them, reaching my goals - and still feeling empty and purposeless. Mr. McCarthy's book was of no help at all.
Well, I was talking about the first sixty pages. The rest of the book isn't much better. Our friend meets more and more people who tell him how happy they are, having found the purpose in their lives.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The On-Purpose Person 11. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Recently I was reminded that most men lead lives of quiet desperation. I had forgotten that I was one of those men back in 1992. Like most, I have been on a hero's journey to discover the treasure of a life of meaning and purpose. Far too often I have chosen the futile pathes that masquerade as meaning and significance for my life. I have read every self-help book under the sun and listened to every personal development tape series in existence. Nothing has had greater impact in my life than The On-Purpose Person. First, it is a parable that is elegant in its simplicity. It can be read in about 2 hours. It avoids the cook-book how-to approach that accompanies the multitude of inspirational literature. Second, it is a truly interactive book. The author engages the reader with compelling questions along the storyline. I found this quite refreshing. It's like having the mentor you've always wanted. We all want someone in our lives to not let us get away without being who we really are.
The greatest value I perpetually gain from the book is the growing sense of profound identity that we all seek. Only by discovering my reason for being here, or, my purpose, did I harness my profound identity. I thank God for this, for I have lived almost 1/2 of my life without clarity about my profound self. I had too much practice affirming my mediocre self to notice.
I gained distinction in my life between purpose, vision, mission, and values. The author masterfully illustrates the distinctions and linkages between them. I learned that my life was truly off-purpose resulting in feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and meaninglessness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The On-Purpose Person 22. Februar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have posted a previous review and wanted to add a few more thoughts. There are 2 groups of people that will respond to this book immediately. One group are those that are unhappy, unfullfilled, having a mid-life crisis, bored in their work, overwhelmed, lost thier drive, unhappy with who they are, and feel like every day is a repeat from the day before. The other group is highly motivated, goal driven, excited, and have momentum on thier side! Both groups will relate to the story and find the methods simple and easy to apply. If you read this and find it amusing but not applicable at this stage of your life, just wait until you become like the first group and re-read this book. You'll surely get it then!

Kevin recommends reading the book through once and then going back to pick up the structure and technique. I heartily recommend following his advice. I've read a great many self-help and success books and listened to many tapes. I've heard about this book from many people that I respect and it has exceeded my expectations. Kevin walks you through a "process" designed to put you "on the path" to achieving your dreams and being "congruent" with your purpose in life. If you don't yet know what that purpose is, Kevin's wisdom will guide you in finding it.
GET THIS BOOK and if you want to discuss the process after you've read it, email me.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book changed my life from chaos to simplicity. It is easy to comprehend, simple to apply, and is awesome! I have personally given this book to over 80 friends, family, and my partners. I have had several conversations with the author and now have a tool in which I can lead my life and help others. This book says everything in fewer pages than other self-help books. We require all new employees at TOM JAMES CLOTHIERS to read this book when they start their career.
