What this book is about:
This nonfiction personal growth book is about drilling down into the core of who you are in order to achieve your unique, God-given life goal.
What I liked:
Tons of practical information – seriously. I started notebook so that I could record my thoughts, jot down answers to questions, ponder various points, and really get the most out of the book.
This book was instrumental in refining my shift in this blog, actually. It provided some enormous clarity, which I needed, and has helped me to narrow my focus and put my energy where it needs to go, rather than scattershotting everywhere.
What I didn’t like:
I know this is probably a personality thing (both his and mine), but some of the “lighten the book up” stuff just rubbed me wrong – like maybe he wasn’t taking it seriously (or maybe I was taking it too seriously) – but I wasn’t the biggest fan of it.
Overall thoughts and opinions:
I think this is an excellent book for helping to narrow your focus by stopping, evaluating your core values and strengths in order to find and achieve your Chazown. I’m sure this is a book I could go back and read every year or every other year in order to further refine and focus, it’s that good. If you’re feeling a bit lost or aimless, this is a great resource to re-light a fire and blaze forward.
I give Chazown 5 stars.
