TOP REVIEWS FROM SUCCESS
The most important and interesting part of this course is the six lives experience, which motivates different ways from the various life experiences and styles.
After this course I was able at least to formulate these ideas on paper and tried to work out the plan. I think this is not the final action list, I can add more in future.
Very nice course. Good for people to understand why to do the things they do, and why they may want to analyze or understand if they need to change what they do.
I loved this course! It has been the best one I've taken on Coursera yet. It was an honor to learn from Richard Shell. I think this course can benefit anyone at any point in their life!
