    It is an excellant collection of actionable concepts. Some of the best mental chemistry to start on “Making things happen”.

    With Reverance.

  2. The suggested self-analysis questions are great! Ask better questions to get better answers.

    When we do that and answer honestly we can only “expect change.” Which funnily enough I keep seeing on Kmart billboards EVRYWHERE. I guess I can expect change. Like it’s just coming & that’s all there is to it, young Sam!

  3. What I love about these questions is that they force you to be very honest with yourself. Great questions. Imagine doing this self-review and analysis on a regular basis. What growth and change could we achieve?

  4. oh a questionaire – will need to get a pen and paper and find out what the results are!!! its almost like a new years resolution. Love finding out more about myself and seeing how I can improve, thanks to Napoleon Hill and Sean for providing a way to help us to see how to improve our life for the better

  5. My problem is with number 26.

    I am in the middle of 2 jobs. Conflict of Interest with myself – is the best phrase.

    I work as a temp in an office during the day cause I “need the doe.”

    During the night & weekends I am a comedic blog writer – who is procrastinating with affiliate marketing.

    Day job is holding me back from what I want but it’s a catch 22!

  6. You are absolutely right Sarah!

    I can’t afford to keep procrastinating – I know it instinctively but I am so scared!!

    Question is – How can I turn that into fierce action taking?

    Hi Sean,

    These are excellent questions that are designed to help us grow and change and move forward in the direction of our goals. They can be tough to answer because they just might force you to feel some discomfort.

    I think I am guilty of living with things that I am unhappy with at times and a checklist like this would certainly make it harder to ignore the areas of my life that aren’t working. For example, I’m not completely happy with my job. I do it primarily because I have obligations and responsibilities, but if I answered Hill’s checklist honestly; I would realize I need to make a change and no excuse is good enough.

  8. Hi Sean,
    An important one for me is to re-budget my time, change my habits so I will be more efficient during the coming months?

  9. Napoleon Hill has a way to bring things right to the point. The list is brilliant and I will review it more than just once per year. It get’s me focused on doing the right things.

    • Hi Renee,

      Okay, I’ll have to add this to my other list. I think evaluating ourselves and our performance using the list is going to be an eye-opening experience.

      Sometimes we need to honestly assess where we are before we can hope to move forward. Hopefully the first six months of this year have gone well, but if not, we still have the last six months to redeem ourselves.
