    One Reply to “OOLA Find Balance in an Unbalanced World”

    1. Two guys made up a word "oola" and wrote a book about it. Every time they used it I cringed a little bit. The book is basically stories and advice about how your life can be as awesome/oola as the authors' if you follow the oola steps on the oola path. Not bad advice but not a game changer for me.

    2. Awesome book. The authors do a great job at entertaining us while teaching us by drawing upon their personal experiences. I have learned that Oola is more than a book. It is a lifestyle. The Oola life is a life of balance, growth and fulfillment. After reading the book I also recommend checking out theoolalife for some cool tools the authors have provided to help us find balance.

    3. I think I need to spend more time with the action steps and journaling that is recommended in the last few chapters of the book. I appreciated the reminders about balancing my life and I think the simple goal setting techniques outlined are doable and will be helpful. However, I didn't find the authors' personal stories to be all that inspiring. Their "healthy confidence" sometimes read more as cavalier and flippant to me. These are not men I can imagine inviting to our house for dinnerCertainly [...]

    4. This book is a worthless collection of platitudes, silly terminology, and anecdotes with no depth or real substantive methodology. I actually found myself repeatedly offended by how haphazardly it glosses over real-life issues as if all you have to do is get Oola-ized. The authors have nothing to share that you haven't heard a thousand times before, but they do have an amazing knack for compiling an exhaustive collection of cliches into a plan for running your life. Oh, yeah, and if you want to [...]

    5. What an awesome book. The personal stories give you insight on the two authors and shows how everyone can be off balance in their lives. My favorite chapter was on fear, guilt, humility, integrity geesh the whole book spoke to me. There is the activity in doing the oolawheel. I recommend this book as a tool to get on track so you can live your best life, oola life. The fact that they know God is the center makes it even better for me. Uplifting.

    6. This book took me a little while to finish because I read it one chapter at a time to reply but I learned a new chapter into my life. You seem like a no-brainer when you actually read the book and apply each section into your life it really soaks in. This book inspired me to find balance in my life. It makes such sense. If you are looking for a book that will help refresh your life look no further.

    7. I'm kind of a self-help book junkie I'll take all the help I can get. I love that this book is really focused on balancing everything and paying attention to your weaker areas in life. The stories that are shared are completely relatable and inspiring. I would absolutely recommend this book (even though the term "Oola" got a little annoying lol).

    8. The principles laid out in this book are generally good, but I found the writing to be pretty uninspiring and lacking depth. Overall I just didn't relate to the authors and found many of their stories to be pretty elitist. I also couldn't get past the grammatical errors and overuse of the term "Oola".

    9. I read this book quickly to get it over with. Tired, like many self-help type books and altogether uninspired. The anecdotes shared are pretty boring, unhelpful, and at times quite annoying. I think there is some good material here, but the way it's shared leaves much to be desired. If you're looking for achieving life balance, there are much better books out there. Leave this one on the shelf.

    10. Decent book, fun online program, and some good ideas. Not hugely original, and felt rather long, but it has some good stories, good ideas, and fun tools for working towards your best life.I also like the fact that you can get a kit of essential oils to go with it! :)

    11. I met the authors and find them sincere and energizing. Anybody who is ready to pursue awesomeness will enjoy this book. #liveoola

    12. This is one of those books (like "The Dip") that I will come back to and read again - as I know I will take something different away depending on my current life circumstances.

    13. A simple read. There's an online test at their website that is insightful. As a concrete/sequential thinker I appreciated how the 7 areas of life discussed (fitness, family, faith, fun, friends, finance, field) were organized into separate chapters. If you can get past some of the self-indulging that the author's do, then you'll probably walk away with a nugget or two. The gist is that your doing things well in some areas of your life and struggling in others. Make a plan of action to improve so [...]

    14. I could not put this down and I ended up reading it in one dayOops. I love Oola and everything it stands for. My family and I are becoming minimalists and this book was definitely the push we needed. I'm definitely going to start mapping out my goals. Thank you Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl for sharing your experiences and writing this amazing book. It definitely helped a little family in Austin, Tx.

    15. This book was OK. It gave me good things to think about, but my main complaint was that the chapters on the 7 areas of a balanced life were too basic and short for my liking. I would have like to dive into more detail with each section. The writing style wasn't my favorite either.

    16. This was an interesting read, with some great advice. It made me look at my life in a different perspective, and think about what goals I might want to accomplish in my life.

    17. I received this book in the St. George marathon bag I received at packet pickup. I don't think I would have purchased it otherwise. I like the idea of these self-help books that encourage improvement in all-things life. This one focuses on 7 Fs: Faith, Family, Fitness, Fun, Field (work), Finance, and Friends. I am encouraged by the flow and organization of the book and will likely even set goals and paths on which to achieve my dreams. I probably won't use the term "oola", however, as I found th [...]

    18. I have read many self help books. ones that tell you how to be a better person in a certain area and why is important. I agree with those. I loved Oola because it wasn't just about changing my life in one area but all areas. How, even if one area of my life is balanced by changing and focusing on another area that my balance is going to shift and therefore I need to be aware and ready. They are funny, okay the seeker is funnier, but they are both funny, honest, open and vulnerable in the book. t [...]

    19. What can I say.I love the Oola guys and their perspective on getting your life balance back after living a life of Oola. Oola as described by the authors is when everything in your life is balanced and you are living your dream, what ever that dream may be. Oola walks you through the Seven F's of what all has to be happening in your life for you to be living an Oolalife. The seven F's of an Oola life are: family, finances, friends, faith, field, fun, fitness. These are the key areas that you mus [...]

    20. My husband wanted me to read this for a while. Finally got to it. I really stink at balance. Probably due to my OCDI kinda hyper focus on certain areas. I've kind of felt like my life is out of control for the last several years and I spend all my time just putting out fires instead of preventing them (I do blame all of this on the fact I have 5 seriously crazy boys). This book has inspired me to use their guidance to take control and make goals in all 7 Oola areas. This time next year I am goin [...]

    21. I have this four instead of five stars because it's really not good writing, ha! But that's ok, these guys aren't writers, they're essentially life coaches. The first part of the book goes lightly over each of the areas of life - Family, Friends, Fun, Field, Faith, Fitness, and Finance. Don't look for anything too profound here, they're basically just getting you thinking about those areas. Read other books on each individual area later on.The really great part of this book is the second part. I [...]

    22. Oola is a must read! For the longest I felt trapped. Living check to check, no social life, distant from love ones, no purpose, you know, just existing n waiting. Once I finished the book I felt new, born again. I felt more confident about my past,present and future. More opportunities presented themselves. I embraced who I was and started to actually LIVE! I found Balance and I could feel Growth physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. However, this didn't just come by reading alone, [...]

    23. This is a book of their path, their examples, their failures, and their successes. This is not a quick fix book. If that is what you want, don't pick this one up. These guys are wonderful speakers on stage and very gracious one on one. I've been able to use this book and my notes from hearing them speak to grow in my own life. This book is a great stepping stone. Hearing their stories (especially the failures!) reminds me that it's ok to follow my God given path not what society/culture thinks I [...]

    24. This one was an exception to a rule for me - I already own it, so although it is getting 4 stars, it is one that will go on my book case to be re-read. It puts a humorous spin on self-help. I believe a lit of the principles they introduce, but by far the most important one is to put God first. I believe that it is important to put Him first then balance the rest of your life from there. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration to get their life in order.

    25. I enjoyed reading this book! It was motivation and inspiration to get my life back in balance, and it also pushed me to GROW myself in 7 areas: Faith, Family, Fun, Fitness, Field (Career), Finance, and Friends. Dave and Troy tell their story/stories in an engaging way that makes the reader feel familiar and comfortable with them, and the appendix and website resources are helpful to take action. I highly recommend this book to anybody seeking balance and growth in their life.
