    Didn't finish this book....

    Scott Wozniak

    An overly simple, very direct book on doing the work. It says things like: don't procrastinate, set small goals and don't quit. Everything he says has been been said better elsewhere. And if you were really struggling with persistence, this wouldn't be very practical or encouraging. It would likely just shame you further.

    Very concise and to the point book about how to stay focussed and getting rid of distractions. It doesn't necessarily introduce completely new ideas if you've read other books on good habit and focus, but is definitely a very good reminder of what it boils down to when we procrastinate. The book also covers a lot of good practices on how to address these obstacles when it comes to staying focussed and "following through".

Quick and good read, recommended.

    "Finish what you start" helps you develop self-discipline of getting things done. The book has some cool tips and tricks that can help anyone follow through on their goal, tasks, or habits. This is an all-around great book for staying motivated and getting things done. I liked it as a welcomed boost to my productivity.

    Nicholas Bacon

    Strong start, weak finish The summary at the end of each chapter is helpful, and perhaps all you need. I enjoyed the first half of this book more than the latter. I think more specifics would help.

    Naessens

    This book lists a lot of reasons why people waste time, procrastinate and never follow-up. I find it interesting and informative. It also includes good advice to overcome these pitfalls and start being productive. The book is concise ; moreover, there is a summary of the eight chapters at the end of the book, which is useful in case one needs a reminder a few months after reading it.

    Faith Fielder

    Easy to read explanation of barriers to productivity. Worthwhile points and practices. Concise expression in business terms of steps to achieve a desired outcome. Explains terminology well. Includes summaries in each chapter and at the end of the book.

    Pegah Mdp

    This book is quite different from other self-help books.Instead of repeating well-known facts it presents various techniques about finishing what we start and productivity in general. Another good point is that the author is a psychologist and the claims in the book are scientific and practical.

    Raph

    The author is clearly smart. In a simple way he has shown how one can persist. He forgot to point out that some things are just never meant to be finished. Dead ends happen. Knowing when that happens is a skill on it's own.

    Ionut Trufin

    Most of the information in this book is something you probably have read someplace else. A bit too much repetition and some weird ideas about what should be done make a bit less appealing.

    For such a short book it is jam packed with good actionable suggestions to help with follow through. Main takeaways for me were to bundle pleasant things with dull or uncomfortable things that I have to learn or get done. Also to limit social media and distractions by keeping them far away. For example working in the basement is relatively distraction free. Also having a clean desk enhances focus. Making a productive system with a calendar, delegating and automating are some other things i found res For such a short book it is jam packed with good actionable suggestions to help with follow through.

    I'm good at starting and finishing what others started, but all too often drop my projects for no apparent reason. Was skeptical at the beginning (the intro is frankly awful), then got curious. First, I like how concise and structured it is—books you can digest and take notes in a couple of hours are priceless. Then, a couple of things really stung—and I think it's good. The more motivation to follow through, the better ;) Aaand it's the first time I see the concept of "opportunity cost" explained I'm good at starting and finishing what others started, but all too often drop my projects for no apparent reason.

    The book is short and concise. The tasks and tips given are straight forward and simple. The author does not beat around the bush before stating the idea and the reason behind the same. Every chapter follows the same pattern and that really helps the reader understand what is it that author whats the reader to understand.

    Unlike the many books that I've started but am yet to fininsh, this one was done in ~ 3 hours - thanks to Audible. The issues (such as procrastination, apparent perfectionism, and other socio-psychological impediments) and the solutions discussed in the book are very relatable. This is a good self-help book, just like many other self-help books. Hope I'll put it to use, unlike most other self-help books.

By digging up life with follow-through we can get the answerable question one by one subsequently. ⭕️📢Today I am reviewing Finish What You Start by Peter Hollins who has a seriously impressive resume when it comes to published works. Finish What You start was released in March 2018 and it carries within the theme of characteristics of a human being not finish the remaining work in a certain period and how human beings can turn their entrenched nature into a vulnerable dimension it shows 🤹‍♂️🤹‍♀️One of the first impressions of this book is the vividness of the content. How simply author had done I just portray on my imaginary wall. Also, when I went through on to the contents of the book my heart and mind just melt-down. I felt like someone has given a proxy of my life. Moreover, I just felt If I miss any word of this book it would be like I miss any corner of life which never be missed. Most importantly several scientific research-based works possess your mind more unequivocal. 🎭Besides, admire on this book some shred of thing intrusive as a reader which is repetition of the sub-content like time-management, opportunity cost ✌Through these books, I learned a lot of things which you can find this link https://medium.com/@soumithra.biswas/... 🕶Final Thought: As far as my concern, If anyone who is in glum or fatigue goes through this book more consciously he/she can portray themselves with a monumental solution. I firmly believe that those who are in student life are more agree with me. Consistency of the content is one of the humungous reasons for that I assume. I would like to give a solid 4 star.👑👑👑👑

Differentiate between important tasks, urgent tasks, and simple wasted motion. Rule 3: Create daily limitations and requirements for yourself. These keep you within the bounds of what you know you need to do. These are also the building blocks of good habits. Rule 4: Sometimes we lose sight of what we want to accomplish. Thus, reaffirm your intentions by stating “I want,” “I will,” and “I won’t” statements. Rule 5: Try to look into the future, 10 minutes, hours, and days at a time. Do you like what you see when you consider not following through? Is it worth the benefit to the current self at the expense of the future self? Probably not. Rule 6: It’s just 10 minutes, right? So if you want to quit, it’s just 10 minutes. And if you need to wait, it’s just 10 minutes.

    A small little book. Around 120 pages, but packed with wisdom right from the word Go.

We as humans are programmed to be lazy, this book stops you from being that and ensures that you are successful in what you want to achieve. I would suggest that every one who reads this review, should at least read this book, if you are honest to your self this book will change your life. You don't have to implement everything the author says, start small, start with a system that you can follow on a daily basis. A timetable which will meet your personal and professional goals and see the difference it can make to your life. There are rules which will keep you guided on the path, you can follow them too. Please do read this book, it is a fantastic book.

    It feels like the author of “Finish What You Start” thought “I really want to write a complete guide into productivity”, and he really did.

It’s more as if I read a very long blog post called “Read This And You Will Become a Productivity Master”. I like that author has passion for writing and ambition though. At first I wanted to give this book a bad rating, because it is kinda useless, it’s just another book that you read instead of actually being productive. But I changed my mind. I think we need more authors of books, instead of blog posts, and the more they practice, the better the next book will be.

    Finish What You Start is another book by author Peter Hollins. As it says, it focuses on providing you with techniques to overcome yourself and get things done. It is similar to the other books by Hollins that I read in that it is short and has a large font size. It also covers similar ground.

The book says that human beings are lazy and usually want to do things that require the least effort. We only have a limited amount of willpower in reserve to resist such temptations as social media and other things on the internet. So the author’s suggestions mainly center around manipulating our environments so that such decisions don’t become so difficult. This book was really easy to read and didn’t take long to finish. The end of each chapter contains a section that sums up what it said for a sort of refresher course.

    Book discusses the practical aspects of following-through. We may feel that the author is repeating many points unnecessarily in different parts of the book. But when you finish there is an excellent recap, with that we will feel the importance of these different perceptions.

To the author: The words used in this book are not that familiar to me. I am not a native English speaker. However, the concepts were very contextual and of easygoing nature. Then I started reading this book to get help on executing single-shot tasks, not projects. But the book is meant for a bigger canvas. It is not an issue. Just told. Because normally I fail to cover the last mile of certain tasks (tasks that only meant for a day or two).

    I enjoyed reading it. I would also recommend this book. For anyone who read “The Power to Get Things Done: (Whether You Feel Like It is Not)” by Steve Levinson, this book is much the same. However, this book focuses more on practical examples than Levinson’s book does, but sometimes it seems like you picked up the same book with a different title. Other times, I felt like Hollins gave me a different thought or perspective about something that I would have otherwise missed if I had only read Levi I enjoyed reading it.

    Ideas such as temptation-bundling, setting goals based on personal history while not having excessively high or low expectations, missions being worthwhile, and discomfort needing to be tolerated sound helpful. However, the 70/40 rule looks like it's based on arbitrary thinking. Colin Powell may have had a valid point about having between 40-70% of the info before a decision must be made, except how do you know what equals 70% and 40% when the information total may not be quantifiable?

    Adjsut your habits for success This book is well written, has clear examples to explain the pro/con of situations. It also is written with a lot of common sense ideals that sometimes are easily overlooked in daily life. I enjoyed it as an ebook and now considering purchasing a physical copy of the book as a reference for motivation for those times when I feel a little stuck or stagnant in a project.
