Reviews - What do customers think about Easier Than You Think ...because life doesn't have to be so hard: The Small Changes That Add Up to a World of Difference?
Small, incremental changes can have a BIG positive impact Jun 9, 2008
Richard Carlson has turned himself into a veritable one-man brand and industry with his "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" series of books. Here he argues that small stuff - small changes , actually, can have a significant and positive impact on our lives and the lives of others.
Carlson is not calling for quantum changes; he seems to be an instrumentalist at heart. The short chapters in this very readable book illustrate a smorgasbord of ideas on saving money, enriching your intellectual life (read eight pages a day) to deepening your key relationships (take time to listen).
ETYT reflects the idea that, to succeed in life, you don't necessarily have to hit home runs. If you hit singles lots of times when you come to the plate, you will advance.
In expounding on this theme in a non-preachy way, Carlson himself has hit a home run.
very peaceful to read Aug 16, 2007
I thought this was a good book. It really helps to think about things in a different way. Sure it's some stuff you have heard before, but it really helps reading it. I enjoyed it.

quick read - deep ideas Apr 5, 2007
This book has some VERY good ideas. There are some blah ideas too, but it's a quick read. Here are some of the best ideas: If you base your happiness on things being different than they are currently, you've set yourself up for constant disappointment. The only aspect of life you have any control over is your own reaction to the events taking place. There are always going to be people doing things we don't like and things happening that we wish were different. We don't control much of what happens around us, but we do control how we respond to it. You are the one creating your thoughts. You have the power to chance your thinking. You can follow your thoughts as they arise or you can change or drop them.
Nothing Very New Aug 14, 2006
This is a good, quick summation of things you may have read in self-help books, especially those dealing with cognative psychology. However, it contains nothing very surprising.
