Book Review: 20,000 Days and Counting

I have lived 17,544 Days

I have lived 17,544 Days

20,000 Days and Counting did not change my life.

But then, no book will.

The Robert D” (Robert D. Smith) did not come right out and say it, but he showed me I have a lot of work to do. If I want to do something other than drift through the next 20,000 days of my life, there are some definite steps I need to take. A book like this can never do more than direct and motivate. The getting started part? That’s up to me.

No change is going to happen until I stand up and do something different.

20,000 days.

Twenty. Thousand. Days.

Imagine what we will accomplish if we salvage just one hour of each of those days from the way we are wasting them now. What if we got up each morning and planned to live the next 24 hours on purpose? How important would the next 20,000 days become?

Robert D. gives us an outline to do just that. Some thought provoking anecdotes, some motivation, and some examples of what could be our first steps come together in a fast paced read that will get the reader off the couch and make him intentional about the day.

Two Questions:

  1. What is important to you right now?
  2. What is next for you?

20,000 Days and Counting will make you understand how important these questions are and how to deal with them going forward. I usually congratulate people who announced a new job by saying, “That’s great! Now you know what’s next!” I think I better understand the implication of what I am saying now.

Spend about 20% of one of your next 20,000 days with this book, and then get out there and make your life change.
