Organization, productivity and good habits all appear to be part of successful endeavors. However, many of us don’t know how to use these to reach our goals with true success. Dr. Fred Ray Lybrand, motivational speaker, writer and “human behavior expert,” with his newest release, The One Success Habit You Can’t Do Without (Kauffman Burgess Press, February 2013), continues with his warm, witty conversational advice that brings fresh clarity to the age old question of how to get organized…get moving…and shift our actions towards a new level of daily success.

Amazon reviewer Brian S. Norman states, “Getting side-tracked and guilty doing things that really aren’t that important to you? Have you filled a day with activity, but just don’t feel like you are moving ahead? Overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things screaming for your attention each day? Are you putting off something, afraid of failure? If you are in any of these situations or just want to advance your already strong performance, I would encourage you to read The One Success Habit.”

Lybrand helps readers—whether in their personal lives or on the job—to finally discover the simple key to side-stepping the frustrating daily efforts that only bring discouragement and defeat. Instead, he helps you to declare victory with one indispensable “success habit” that proves remarkably profound, powerful and revitalizing. 

In the first chapters, Lybrand helps readers define their destination, set goals the right way, light a “motivational fire” in their hearts, understand how to make habits their “servants,” remove a serious stumbling block, the “number one enemy” to success—and more. Only after revealing these key, foundational insights does Lybrand clearly present the vital “one habit”—taking the everyday “to-do” list to a level far beyond anything most have ever conceived. Moreover, he shows readers how to painlessly make the process a natural, trustworthy part of their lives—and more importantly, how to allow it to transform the daily agenda.

“The more I read into this book, the more I realized that it was describing me,” writes one reader. “I’ll admit that I, too, fall into the everyday trap of busyness without getting the right things done. But Fred led me to an ‘aha’ moment, and I understood the ‘why’ of what we can or cannot accomplish. Better than that, I found real tools to do something about it.”

The book includes a four-part appendix, filled with hands-on, practical helps for making the most of your schedule and long-term goals, such as creating a ”May-Do Catalog” and “Master List System” and establishing special “Edison” days to deliver major breakthroughs in organizational and project focus.

Dr. Fred R. Lybrand, married for 30 years to Jody and the father of five, has authored six books as well as The Writing Course. Fred has helped many organizations in many industries, including major oil and gas companies, insurance firms, restaurant chains, health technology pioneers, and even the U.S. Air Force to achieve higher levels of  productivity and performance.
