Publisher's Summary

Everybody has dreams - but how many of us get to see our dreams come true?
Disneyland, Starbucks, Google, the first manned landing on the Moon, every novel ever written, ever motion picture ever filmed, every painting ever created - all began as a dream in someone's imagination. And all became real through the power of Extreme Focus.
After assembling an NBA championship team in Philadelphia in the 1980s, author Pat Williams dreamed of building an NBA expansion team in central Florida: the Orlando Magic. Applying the same success principles he teaches in Extreme Focus, Williams achieved that dream. For more than two decades, the Magic has been rocking the sports world and proving that dreams really do come true through the power of Extreme Focus.
This is not just another collection of rah-rah motivational slogans. Extreme Focus is a practical, proven, step-by-step guide to turning dreams into reality, written by someone who has been there, done that. Pat Williams explains how to discover and focus on your passion in life, how to achieve great things tomorrow by focusing on today, how to discipline yourself for success, how to increase your courage and confidence, and more.
The principles and stories in Extreme Focus will get you off the treadmill of a ho-hum life and onto the road to your dreams!

Awesome book!

Where does Extreme Focus: Harnessing the Life-Changing Power to Achieve Your Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

Very uplifting and encouraging. The stories Pat tells are great! He uses a lot of athletes as examples, but also others that really add to the story.

Nothing New, with Lots of Examples from Sports

Would you try another book from Pat Williams and Jim Denney and/or Jay Webb?

Possibly.


Would you ever listen to anything by Pat Williams and Jim Denney again?

Possibly.


What about Jay Webb’s performance did you like?

Clear, crisp reading without sounding "artificial."


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed. The are a gazillion books on passion and purpose, and focus is just an organic outgrowth of those subjects. What I mean is, you will naturally have focus for things you are truly passionate about. This book had no new revelations, but lots of sports stories, coach and athlete career vignettes, etc., to drive home its non-point.


Any additional comments?

Nope.
