Book Synopsis
We all know of people who live amazing lives full of passion, meaning, happiness, relationships, and success. We want to make our lives more like theirs.

This book shows you how—simply, on your own, and in ways that last.

Joshua Spodek—Ivy League PhD, MBA, entrepreneur, leadership coach and Professor—presents a simple exercise you'll do that exposes your beliefs and mental models that define how you view the world, make decisions, create value and meaning, and form your identity.

He then shows how you can create and choose your models to make you who you want, creating value, meaning, and purpose, influencing people, and creating happiness and emotional reward that attract others to help you achieve your goals. He does so in simple language devoid of jargon or new-age mysticism.

ReModel walks you through how to fill your life with passion, meaning, happiness, relationships, and success, consistently, reliably, and predictably.

Remodel did so many things for me. The book inspired and motivated me to lead myself better through mental models, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness. Once we know how to lead ourselves, the author writes how we could lead others by being ourselves. The book guides us how to create our world that is calmer, understanding, responsible, accountable, resilient, nonreactive, joyful, creative, and loving. Who wouldn’t want to be led by someone with a life like that? This leads to personal freedom.

The book made me think a lot and learn that I could have flexibility in my beliefs. I can change my beliefs more easily now and I feel freer. I feel myself getting calmer, less judgmental, and less stressed. The author wrote, “You can change your beliefs more easily than you can change the world.” Remodel set me free like the way Michelangelo set David free.

This book consists of 73 chapters (short) with different models (beliefs) and exercises that guide readers to discover their meaning, value, importance, and purpose (MVIP). These are the basic ingredients to live a richer and more fulfilling life. The more MVIP we can build the more we can improve. The writing is easy to understand and personal because the author organized the chapters in the order he changed his mental models. The author makes insightful points that even if you are skeptical of his models, you began to think and make sense of them. I could see the transformation he went through so it inspires me to do the same. If he did it, I think we all can.

The exercises are easy and cost-free. They’re fun also. The 3-raisin exercise amazingly improved my self-awareness. I tried the feedforward exercise with couple people and now I’m more comfortable to try more if it. It improves social skills and it leads to making new friends because I still keep in touch with them. This book is resourceful because if I get stuck in a belief that’s not improving my life, I can go back to his chapters and refocus on how to replace my old belief with a new one.

Remodel is helping me take charge of my life, improve relationships, and live a more balanced, relaxing, and fun life. This book shows that we could do something to live life to the fullest like the cathedral builder. I highly recommend this book to everyone because there are many important skills we could learn or relearn to live a richer, more meaningful, and freer life.
