Business Reading: You Have Only Half A Second to Live

24 December 2014 by Shweta Jhajharia

I picked up this book recently and I absolutely had to share it. It offers a great perspective on your life and, I hope, will inspire you to rethink how you are approaching your goals and dreams.

“Life in Half a Second: How to Achieve Success Before It’s Too Late” explains how compared to the life of the planet, of the Universe, your life is but half a second long. That’s all the time you’ve got to make something of yourself and to succeed in life.

Setting you up with that mind-set, the author then walks you through these “five doors” that are a part of his fact-based formula to achieving success. I have to say, there’s little here I can disagree with. The most important thing to note is that his steps are well proven with the use of hard data from thousands of studies conducted over decades.

These aren’t just some ideas of his, or even advice built from his personal experience. This is a method to achieve success that’s tried and tested. Not sure I can recommend it any more highly. A fantastic piece of business reading for the holiday season.
