Your Best Year Ever: A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals
by Michael Hyatt
Baker Books (January 2, 2018)
I read this book for a special book club event and found it quite helpful for goal setting and for general life planning and assessment.
There are five steps to creating your Best Year Ever.
1. BELIEVE THE POSSIBILITY
2. COMPLETE THE PAST
3. DESIGN YOUR FUTURE
4. FIND YOUR WHY
5. MAKE IT HAPPEN
Hyatt’s book delves into motivation, dealing with past “failures” and regrets, as well as planning for future success, including not just setting goals but plotting steps to take to achieve those goals.
We’ve all heard of SMART Goals, but Hyatt takes it further to SMARTER Goals, which are must be:
I enjoyed reading the book, and I actually did some of the recommended exercises. I’m still working on filling out templates and setting my goals for the year. I think this is one of the best goal-setting books I’ve ever read, and I recommend it to anyone looking to increase their success in the New Year.

I have a niece that I think needs this book!
That’s not to say I don’t think I could use it too, but I will say that I may start implementing things I learn in books like this but I don’t always follow through. But good food for thought. Thanks for reviewing!
I hear you on the follow through. That’s my weakest point, too.
Sounds simple but oh, so hard. Right now the best I can to is to keep on trucking. — Margy
Me, too, Margy.
I agree. I lack any goals. I’m just hanging on the best I can.
I really should read this. As should my sister. We were talking about goal setting just the other day. I’d like 2022 to be a productive year. Thank you for reviewing!
Very good advice! I hope it leads you to a rewarding year.
