Man this book is intense. Like Conversations with God but with the other one. Big up Simon Bowen for the recommendation. Some of the stuff is just basic science, psychology or doctrine.

Notes:

- The book only published after him and wife died. 70 years + Remember he wrote this ages back to this convo was far ahead of its time.
- He gets people through these 9 doors of habit – fear, superstition, avarice, greed, lust, revenge, anger, vanity, and plain laziness.

1. Definiteness of purpose.
2. Mastery over self.
3. Learning from adversity.

6. Harmony (acting with definiteness of purpose to become the dominating influence in your own mental, spiritual, and physical environment).
7. Caution (thinking through your plan before you act).

- Children are taught to memorise in school and not learn important things. Cram their memories with facts but not learn about handling money, emotions, etc.
- Keep intestines clean. Enema and headaches.
- Adversity is good as long as you see failure as temporary failure.
- Like minds, company you keep, master mind group, finding the right partner how has the same life motives.
- 10 most common motives/desires.
1. The desire for sex expression and love.
2. The desire for physical food.
3. The desire for spiritual, mental, and physical self-expression.
4. The desire for perpetuation of life after death.
5. The desire for power over others.
6. The desire for material wealth.
7. The desire for knowledge.
8. The desire to imitate others.

(Condensed audio at the bottom)
Mostly Jeff talks about how to put all the things you read and learn into action. Most of the book he just talks about that in different ways. So if you really want to start getting things done I recommend Anthony Robbins Personal Power II Audio Download Edition. The importance of compound interest in all areas of life. Explains moon landing one small step which was really a lot and lot of steps before they could even get to the moon.

The most important lesson I learnt was that eighty percent of everything you do tends to get done in the last twenty percent of the time available. How true is that and how many of us do things last minute. So that’s another secret of goal setting.
