Power of an Hour

Power of an Hour by Dave Lakhani is one of the books that caught my eye in What’s Stopping You? I think the concept of it appealed to me enough to put my own version of it into action without actually reading the book. One of the things that I can be guilty of is flitting from one task to another feeling like I’m busy but without getting a great deal done. With that in mind the idea of spending a ‘power hour’ on one particular task and therefore achieving more is very appealing.

But that’s my own interpretation before even reading the book. Power of an Hour is much more detailed than that – it’s all about using the power hour as a catalyst for change. The author takes you through various aspects of your life and business, sale with a view to you spending an initial hour on each and forming a plan for consistently moving in the right direction. Very inspiring.

I have to say that I haven’t methodically worked through the book yet – just had one quick read through. At the end I was very tempted to go straight back to the start and follow each hour. However, online I’ve got a fear that if I do so I’ll come up with all sorts of ideas for improvement, with a detailed action plan for each, and end up with an even scarier to-do list than I’ve already got. What I don’t want to do is overcommit and end up not doing what I’d planned … yet again. Instead, I’m using the power hour concept to work through my current task and project list with a view to clearing the decks ready to throw myself into the process whole-heartedly.

If you are feeling like you need some help making improvements in your life and/or business then I would recommend reading this book (and perhaps even following it!). I’ve certainly taken quite a bit away from just one reading, even if I haven’t yet followed it to the letter.
