Publisher's Summary

Get out of your own way, and bring your ideas to life!

Exactly Where to Start is a playbook for everyone with a great idea, everyone with a goal in mind, and everyone with a specific destination but no journey. We’ve been told all our lives that “good things come to those who wait” - but that’s a myth. Good things come to those who do. Too often, we get stuck in the “getting ready” stage: research, analysis, brainstorming, and more research; we feel like we need to know everything there is to know about what we want to do before we ever take the first steps. Meanwhile, the people who actually go out and do the thing are taking risks, learning lessons, and making strides toward their goals every single day. Isn’t it time you joined them?

This book coaches you through the journey with precise, actionable steps that help you take that all-important first leap and keep the momentum going. Discard the distractions, break through the overwhelm, and get going for real with this real-world blueprint for turning your vision into reality. Snap yourself out of “analysis paralysis”. Stop thinking you need to know everything before you even begin. Make those big decisions and focus in on your goals. Chart your journey’s path, and get up and get started today.

Many of us have fallen into a trap: We no longer believe that “anything is possible”, yet we are surrounded by proof that everything is possible! But we are distracted, harried, overwhelmed, and maybe a little intimidated. Our dreams remain forever in limbo, and we may go to our graves before we venture beyond the “planning stage”. Don’t let that happen - don’t you deserve to realize your goals? Exactly Where to Start gives you the kick in the pants and the practical plan you need to stand up, step up, and make it happen.

Very useful

Love the book. I understand that you want to keep the book action oriented. However I would love to see more examples. Examples helps us visualize how to put your advice into action for ourselves. It’s a great companion to your first book, exactly what to say. Thx.

Literally tells you exactly where to start

I love that there are small, completely doable action steps at the end of each chapter! It’s short, to the point, full of real info without all the frills and clichés you hear everywhere else.

Exactly what to read!

I did not dislike anything about this book. My first Audible and it only motivated me to listen to more and learn more. My favorite part is that the autor really understood that when there is little direction or motivation to get started, with so many options out there filled with endless advise and knowledge, one gets lost in it all. This book simply guides you through all the steps to get you out of that mindset. Loved it.

It’s exactly what’s needed

This book was a very good listen or read depending on how you interpret it. As usual the points were very well laid out and explained in such simplicity that anyone should be able to pick them up and find out where to start, and how.

Just what I needed.

Great book and just what I needed. Loved that it says a lot in a short and to the point manor. I’m on my second listen with pen in hand to do the work Phil challenges us to do.
