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.

Acts 21:10, 11 Several days later a man named Agabus, who also had the gift of prophecy, arrived from Judea. He came over, took Paul’s belt, and bound his own feet and hands with it. Then he said, “The Holy Spirit declares, ‘So shall the owner of this belt be bound by the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem and turned over to the Gentiles.’” (NLT)
Acts 20:33-35 “I have never coveted anyone’s silver or gold or fine clothes. You know that these hands of mine have worked to supply my own needs and even the needs of those who were with me. And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (NLT)
Acts 18:9, 10 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” (NLT)
1 Kings 19:11-13 “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And a voice said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (NLT)
