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.

Daily D – Psalm 57:2

Psalm 57:2 ”I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.“

Daily D – Psalm 56:3

Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 8:12-18

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“

Daily D – Deuteronomy 1:2-3

Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
