2024 ... Your Year of More by Noah William Smith Book Review

About the Book:

2024... Your Year of More
 is your go-to book to set goals and mindfully invest your efforts. It appeals to adults of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds who wish to improve their lives. Its pages are packed with something special for everyone.

The pages contain practical ideas from 
A to Z, thought-provoking questions, and self-reflective exercises that inspire you to live your best life.

The book is an ideal companion during your moments of solitude. You can read it in the early morning before the rest of the world wakes up or during the evenings after a long day. You may also find it enjoyable while writing in your journal or taking a lunch break.

Enthusiastic indie author Noah William Smith knows the blessings and challenges of intelligence, creativity, high sensitivity and being a minority, underdog and outsider. While his books are based on his experiences, they offer valuable insights without being prescriptive or offering advice.

The book's authenticity and invaluable insights make it a compelling read that will remain relevant for many years!

My Review:

Smith's books are based on life experiences, he says, and he shares many of them in this book. Some seem to be rather random, such as going to the dentist or experiences with their dogs. They do relate to the topic being written about, however, often examples of decisions he made.

Smith arranges his thoughts in alphabetical order and asks many open ended questions. “How do you manage your anger?” is an example. He also asks readers to think of ideas for the future and gives space for writing down those ideas. But you will not find any particular strategy for creating goals or help with carrying them out.

This book would be a good stimulus for journaling, for brainstorming the future. It does lack any practical suggestions to get you there.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

Independently Published, 112 pages.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
