The 10 Book: What’s on Your Top 10 List?


Last year, I introduced you to a series of inspirational books. I saved the best book in this series for last. The 10 Book: What’s on your top 10 list? is written by Dan Zadra and Kobi Yamada. Similar to other books in the Life by the Numbers series, this is a collection of quotes, stories, and writing prompts to encourage you to document your life lists, with empowering exercises such as listing your top values in order of importance, which serves as the basis for goal setting.4714-10-book-07The opening pages welcome readers with, “The adventure starts here. What’s on your top 10 list? A new quest? A hidden passion? Future adventures? At any moment, you have the freedom to make a list of important choices – choices that create a bright new direction for your life”. This book provides the tools to write a purpose statement, aligning dream lists with goals, action plans and your personal goal-setting guide. My favorite part is guidance for creating diverse top 10 lists of your own, from quirky to serious. Then there is the ubiquitous “bucket list” of things to do before you die.


Typography does not disappoint with this book in the series, as with the other books features a modern design, with clean typefaces and bold colors, set on high quality heavy paper. Hard cover with jacket, this diminutive book (80 pages) is small in scale, but boasts potentially enormous change.

The 10 Book: What’s on your top 10 list? is available at the usual places as well as through CompediumThe 10 Journal nicely complements The 10 Book, with more space for composing your lifelists.

To catch up on all my reviews from this series:
