Book Review: 10 Ways to Make It Great

10 Ways To Make It Great by Phil GerbyshakThere are many self-development books on the market, but how many of them actually inspire you to take action? Some of us gobble up books left and right searching and searching for that one book that is going to make life that much better. I know, I've been that person. However, little do we know that we need to apply what we've read and take action.

I recently read Phil Gerbyshak's book, 10 Ways to Make It Great, which you may recall was on the summer reading list. I first met Phil through Customers Are Always and he has been instrumental to the success of that blog. A week doesn't go by that I don't receive an email from Phil letting me know about some interesting customer service articles. His energy is pretty contagious!

Why I Like 10 Ways to Make It Great
Not only is it a book that will teach you exactly how to create a better life for yourself, it's also a workbook wherein you can write down your own plans for your life. Most people read self-development books without really giving much thought to the lessons to be learned. This book forces you to stop and think, Ok, what is really important to me? What can I do right now to happier and more productive?

I especially like Chapter 7: Dream Big Dreams, Do Big Things! Phil suggests setting up a dream room or a place you can go to just get away and think. For me, that dream room would be my bedroom. Every morning when I wake up, I look at my vision board which is right beside my bed. I dream about the life I'm going to live at the same time being grateful for what I have right now.

In Chapter 7 Phil asks us to write down our first Big Dream. Here is what I wrote down:
A gorgeous peaceful mansion in Rancho Santa Fe with lush landscaping, a space for studios so that Cory and I can create all day. We would both work from home and travel the world helping others live a more inspired life.
Needless to say, I highly recommend reading 10 Ways to Make It Great if you sincerely want to live each and every day with inspiration. This book is exactly what I needed to keep moving forward with my goals! Thanks, Phil!
