Reading List

Put Your Dream To The Test by John Maxwell is a challenging and encouraging title for anyone who is wondering about whether or not their specific dream should be pursued.

Maxwell will help you evaluate your dream/goal with systematic questions which form the foundation for each chapter's focus. The 10 questions are:

1. The Ownership Question: Is my dream really my dream?
2. The Clarity Question: Do I clearly see my dream?
3. The Reality Question: Am I depending on factors within my control to achieve my dream?
4. The Passion Question: Does my dream compel me to follow it?
5. The Pathway Question: Do I have a strategy to reach my dream?
6. The People Question: Have I included the people I need to realize my dream?
7. The Cost Question: Am I willing to pay the price for my dream?
8. The Tenacity Question: Am I moving closer to my dream?
9. The Fulfillment Question: Does working toward my dream bring satisfaction?
10. The Significance Question: Does my dream benefit others?

Dr. Maxwell helps you to create and clarify the right answers, giving you principles and tips so you can make good decisions and maximize every moment to attain your dream.
So, whether you've lost sight of an old dream or you are searching for a new one within you, Put Your Dream to the Test provides a step-by-step action plan that you can start using today to recognize, own, and reach your dream.
Read, enjoy, and be encouraged! Most challenged to study and reflect on your dream and to follow it with all your passion!

I have heard that a good follow up to this book is Andy Stanley's Visioneering.  I think I'll have to "slip it in" to my reading list.
Till tomorrow...

Thank you so much for this review and shorthand discussion of the book. As you know, I have been wanting to read it and have ordered it myself.
I envy your time spent (I imagine) in a deck chair poolside reading. Still, it requires discipline and that is what I need now to tackle my own reading list.
I am so glad to hear about this book. Thanks!
