I stumbled upon The Achievement Habit through Tina Seelig book. It was a wake-up call for me, especially the chapter "Reasons are Bullshit".

I was blaming almost everyone, including my family, for where I am right now. Until I read "Many reasons are simply excuses to hide the fact that we are not willing to give something a high enough priority in our life."

Your book made a big difference in the monthly meeting of a senior group I belong to. Twelve of us meet in my home.
