How small steps can dra­mat­i­cally Im­prove your life and po­ten­tial By Tom O’Neil Harper Collins Pub­lish­ers Auck­land, 2013

To be a suc­cess in any area of your life, ac­cord­ing to Tom O’Neil, is to get peo­ple on your side and have them agree with your point of view. Whether it’s a sales trans­ac­tion, busi­ness deal or mar­riage pro­posal, get­ting a per­son to say “yes” is a com­mu­ni­ca­tion skill.

There are many mo­ti­va­tional quotes spread through­out the book, but the three I like best are: “Make at least one def­i­nite move daily to­wards your goal. You have to put in many, many, many tiny ef­forts that no­body sees or ap­pre­ci­ates be­fore you achieve any­thing worth­while.

If what you are do­ing is not mov­ing you to­wards your goals, then it’s mov­ing you away from your goals.” There’s tips too to spice up your per­sonal re­la­tion­ships, like “keep a lit­tle gift hid­den away so you can sur­prise your part­ner when they have had a bad day.”
