OVERALL INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PROCEED
A much better life is clearly attainable by doing this systematic approach, which eliminates alot of the "claimed-to-be-effective" (but not really proven) methods, as they are sorted out for you.
ALTERNATIVE CHOICE: GO TO SPECIFIC AREAS
Obviously, you can just home in on certain areas of interest depending on your situation. Programs for various things you might want to change will be formulated; but you can do your own by reading the key summaries and following the leads there are into the next item to read or do. While reading is beneficial by itself, completing some writing and/or filling in of forms helps you tie more down.
SKIP AND CHOOSE
Although there is a more beneficial order (the one specified), in this approach you pick areas of interest "out of order".
One can also skim over some areas more lightly for now. The option to go back and to go into more depth in areas is always a viable one.
For instance, you might fill in only pieces of the plan, leaving the other pieces open for later, when you have more time or interest.
INTEGRATE BOOKS STRATEGICALLY
Books can help carry you through more detail, though this site will take you through all the critical items you need to know to live a happy life. As you read each section, go to the Resources section for each area to pick the books you want to use to draw you deeper into the topic.
