Whether it’s the time of year or the time of life but I am becoming increasingly tired of B***S**T, whether it comes from politicians, media people, sportsmen or the proliferation of dental “experts” feeding on the fear initiated by those from the acronym farms CQC, GDC, etc. More and more I am reflecting on the advice given to me by Roy Higson in Bolton more than 25 years ago “K.I.S.S.” – “Keep It Simple Stupid” or as Einstein said “Everything Should Be Kept As Simple As Possible But No Simpler.”

This is a great little book which helps find a way to deal with goal achievement and I don’t know anyone who will not gain from reading it.
Here are some of the reviews from the Amazon website which say everything.
“I immediately put the framework into practice and processed my big 5 goals for this year through it. I’ve got a clear vision on my goals but know through effort, important actions I will succeed!”
“Simple and concise
Easy to read and understand
I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to add value to their lives”
“The book is a very short read and easy to take in. Each of the 9 “things” is put across clearly and concisely without all the added waffle that some authors throw into similar books. Highly recommend read for anyone looking to gain some insight into how they could increase their chances of success in whatever they take on.”
