Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want
A little over a year ago, I was given Leading the Life You Want by Stewart Friedman to review for my Church Central blog. I still haven’t posted that review. The core content of the book is good. It fits well with the LifePlan process Becky and I facilitate. However, a large chunk of the book is made up of somewhat fawning chapters built around how one celebrity, politician, or hip and cool business leader utilizes the author’s personal planning process.
Another chunk of the book is an advertisement for the author’s other books and services. I have no real problem with this. That is good marketing. His book that introduces his life planning process is Total Leadership. I will add that to my Amazon Wish List and get to it sometime.
More recently, I was selected to join the launch team for Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Wantby Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy. This is a much more satisfying and enjoyable book to read. It doesn’t require politically correct thinking or culture worship. It does not push spiritual matters to the periphery with the option to eliminate them altogether. It is written simply and elegantly. It goes directly to the point and delivers a simple process complete with multiple examples and online tools.
This book teaches you how to put together a Life Plan in a day of personal reflection and writing. This is a tool you will use again and again. You will learn how and how often to review your Life Plan. It instructs you how to revise your Life Plan at least annually. It delivers opportunities for you to share the Life Plan process with loved ones and coworkers.
Among the online tools, there is a template to assist you in filling out your Life Plan. There is an Ideal Week tool to teach you how to schedule your week in a manner that is manageable and productive. There is a tool to help you schedule major life events several years into the future so that you don’t carelessly fill up your life with items of lesser importance.
Living Forward is a tool you will love and love to share. You will be enriched and you will enrich others.

1 Kings 22:34 But someone drew his bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the sections of his armor. The king told his chariot driver, “Wheel around and get me out of the fighting. I’ve been wounded.”
1 Kings 21:25, 26 (There was never anyone like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, urged on by Jezebel his wife. He behaved in the vilest manner by going after idols, like the Amorites the Lord drove out before Israel.)
Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
2 Chronicles 15:1, 2 The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded. He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.”
