5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book - Great perspective on measuring progress. Essential reading for everyone
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 October 2021
Life rarely exactly matches our ideal goals and outcomes and it is always easy to focus on the fact that we did not achieve our ideal but all that this results in is unhappiness, frustration, disappointment and other negative feelings.

This is a problem because we use the future as our projection and use that to measure our progress even though it is not reality. If you started last in a race and got to second position but your ideal was coming first then would you actually measure your real progress which was going from last to second or would you measure with an ideal and say I did not make it to the top position?

This book does a great job of bringing to life how we think about progress and categorises them as the GAP or the GAIN. The GAP is where people measure progress based on ideals whilst the GAIN is where people look back and actually measure the distance they have travelled, the outcomes they have achieved and appreciate the gains made.

Whilst this book will be super useful for Entrepreneurs and High Achievers, in actual sense, it would be useful for everyone. Having read the book I now appreciate why BJ Fogg who is the author of Tiny Habits has made this as a required reading for all his Stanford courses.

Some of the concepts around needs and wants, success criteria, mental subtraction, journaling to measure backwards, measuring daily wins and proactive gratitude are amongst many other powerful concepts that will provide you with a practical framework to be in the GAIN and create life changing results.

What I Love about this book is that everything in there has a practical use and can directly support you with changing the mindset from GAP to GAIN. Ben has made the concepts easy to understand with some great examples, every chapter ending with a summary and very clear ideas on what to do practically to live that concept.

It is a book I will be recommending to everyone I know. It is a short book, so investing about 4 hours of your life will give you practical wisdom that can help create significant shifts in many areas of your life.
