The first quarter of the year is crucial when it comes to setting new goals. There should be motivation and purpose in our actions because we are attempting different activities that may take us out of our routine. Without the right direction, we can slip behind and lose what we've worked so hard to achieve. The First Quarter: Get Moving! is a reminder not to abandon our dreams. A.A. Sõbrad leads us in the right direction and provides the necessary motivation to meet our goals. The topics are divided into months to simplify the process, while each month adopts a different approach. The author includes tips such as dividing goals into smaller tasks to improve focus and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.

The First Quarter is a practical example of A.A. Sõbrad’s teachings. He explains that change always comes in phases. We do not notice it at first, but as time passes, we will discover that we have progressed. I admire the fact that A.A. Sõbrad exemplifies this as he relates his experiences as a writer. He explains the improvements he has made to his work since he set the goal of writing and publishing his collection of books. The advice is useful and easy to follow, requiring discipline and application, and he points out that everything worthwhile requires effort. If you work cleverly, you can link goals to daily activities. This is a small book, but using it faithfully will bring positive results.
