My book talk: If you’ve ever begun a great project or set an important goal, then lost enthusiasm partway, take heart and reach for Doable, which will help you get where you want to go in life.
Step-by-step, the author outlines the 8 stages of doing what you deem important:

- Defend Against Obstacles
- Develop Support Systems
- Determine What Success Looks Like
- Do the Work
- Deal with Setbacks
- Deliver the Goods
Common pitfalls, workarounds for stalled projects, and examples from young women who’ve accomplished much are provided with each stage so that you can go from almost to all done on your own timeframe.
Whether you want to change yourself, change your school, or change the world, you can use the steps, worksheets, and good advice in this book to create a goal that you can control and a plan for reaching it. (One of 7,000 books recommended on www.abookandahug.com)
