Comments: Fantastic book. It is extremely high on impact and inspired me to no end to get disciplined and start designing systems to manage myself. This is the story of an Australian real estate entrepreneur who had the lowest scores in the Australian school system but ‘made it’ thanks to enormous amounts of self discipline.
It is, to me, the tale of a millionaire (not an obscenely rich one) who manages to focus on family and business thanks to tremendous amounts of focus and, of course, self discipline. I love the systems he’s got in place to manage himself.
Add on Mar 16, 2016: It was my first “systems thinking” book and had a huge impact on the way I approach life.
