Determination to complete a good plan means executing the program in pieces that allow action to lead. When you’ve pulled together the best plan of the century and the process stops there, nothing happens. Reading Get in Gear is a quick reminder to put that plan into action and actually execute the plan you’ve created.
Identifying with the author from the Foreword to the Bibliography, I was forewarned that there would be challenges in between. The step-by-step process of achieving the goal is often the part of a good plan that never gets applied. You can identify all you want, but if you don’t put the plan into action, you’re left sitting on the stump in the forest with nothing to show for your well-laid out thoughts and plans.
Ryan sets you up for success if you follow his well aligned gears to drive the ultimate project through the door. His process of development offers high-impact results, not only because he generates planning strategies that focus on a complete and unrelenting plan to attack the project with motivation and determination… But there’s more. He gives you step-by-step, well-aligned gears that once you set them in motion, they just keep moving.
This kind of working leadership system builds and grows the more effort you put into it, which means RESULTS. You get results when you set the first gear in action, because you’re pushing more action with every single step.

Personally speaking, I’m an ageing biker guy. I used to love riding my mountain bike through the hills, and every biker knows that the wheels don’t turn if you’re not pedaling. The cogs and gears work best when you’ve got the right size gears in the right places, so you don’t have to push the pedal so fast to make the tires turn – and trust me when I say there are a lot of cogs and gears between the pedals and the rubber that meets the road.
So, reading Ryan’s book, I kept putting the cogs and gears in place on the bike for greater action. And every gear lined up. Every time he set into motion the next step, it was perfectly aligned to the last – and the gears kept turning.
He talks about building and growing and setting up strategies. But he put them together in ways that worked. The right people, the right capabilities, the right roles… These were some of the important steps he clearly identified to pulling his plan into focus and driving it forward. I got it… All through the book, it made sense. I understood the basic principles. And that’s what made Ryan’s book a worthy read to me. I recommend his book, because he breaks down the steps and pulls them together in ways that fundamentally challenge you to step up and get with the program.
In every way possible, Ryan gives you the tools you need AS ONE PERSON to move forward and lead a team to success. That’s motivational. That, right there, is leadership in black and white, spelled out on paper. And you can carry it with you, write in the margins, and follow the steps over and over again. I’d say grab this book fast before they sell out!
