Browsing through different products on Amazon I came across The Survival Template and after reading the description I decided to order it. Written by John Heatherly, the book takes a very methodical and organized look at preparedness as well as life in general.
The author takes the reader through a systematic approach of writing down goals along with the steps required to accomplish said goals. Time periods for goal planning are explorer from 24 hours through several years. Mr. Heatherly references prisoner-of-war and other survival situations to promote examples of the relationship between survival and goal setting.
This will be a short review for a short book (only 70 pages). One of the most unique books I have ever read for this genre. Is it worth the purchase? For me – it was not.
Why? Through my job I have attended many classes, seminars, and read books on goal setting and getting things done. So, I was already familiar with most of what this book prescribes.
Will reading this book be of any value to you? Depends. If you don’t have the background such that I have described then it may prove extremely valuable. I use goal setting and task creation very often to stay productive. If you do not – this book may prove very beneficial.
Time to go set some goals.
