DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Here is the truth about most self-help books: they are too long and full of fluff. Whether it is because bigger books appear to be more valuable and sell better, or for some other reason, who knows. What we all do know is that they are too long. Additionally, many of them are not immediately actionable. While everyone can get something useful from this book, it will be most enjoyed by people who like to get stuff done. No hours and hours of reading. Get in, get out, get moving.
Just Add One (JAO) is designed to be concise. It will give you specific principles and recommendations on how to take action on each principle. JAO is also intended to be a framework that you can build around your life. It will help you take responsibility for your own results.
This book distills the best of the best from giants such as Tony Robbins and Craig Manning, to lesser-known (but just as important) researchers like Dr. BJ Fogg. There are three things I hope you learn how to do by practicing what is in this book:
Set goals in a way that stacks the odds in your favor.
Increase your ability to do a task and learn to decrease the required ability for a task by leveraging your most abundant resources.
Drive disciplined behavior through designing smart triggers (or prompts).
