  • "Resolutions and Resolve"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Last New Year's Day, as I was taking down Christmas decorations, I listened to Andrew Mellen's "Unstuff Your Life! Kick the Clutter Habit and Organize Your Life for Good" (2010). I had decided 2013 was the year I would work on organizing my home, starting with holiday lights, ornaments, and decorations. It ended up taking me a week to box it all, but at the beginning of December, I knew it really worked. The house was festive, and thanks to the other tips in that book, it's well on the way to being uncluttered.

    That was such a success, I decided to start 2014 out with another self help book, listening as I put decorations away (just a few hours this year). I chose M J Ryan's "This Year I Will: How To Finally Change A Habit, Keep A Resolution, Or Make A Dream Come True" (2006). I have some habits I'd like to shed, along with a few pounds; some habits I'd like to establish; and a dream or two that's been simmering on the back burner as I dedicated myself to raising kids who are finally old enough to make themselves dinner and get to and from practices.

    "This Year I Will" is a really practical guide to looking at what you would like to do; establishing reachable goals; the methods for reaching those goals; and, most importantly for me, what to do if you fall out of the Keebler Elf Tree House and eat a cookie or five. Ryan talks about how to handle temporary setbacks without turning them into permanent failures. She also discusses different motivations, and why what works for some (a reward or treat) isn't necessarily going to work for people who are motivated by other factors, like the joy of competition.

    I'm very hopeful that the techniques I learned listening to this book will work for me.

    Ryan narrated the book, and I liked her voice. The production quality was a little rough and it could have used an audio proof listen - but it didn't distract from the message.

    Why do people find it so hard to change? The secret is that everyone has their own formula for making changes that stick, but most people don't know what theirs is. They think there is one way to lose five pounds, and another way to stay on top of their e-mail, but they don't realize that for all changes, there is one system that works best for each individual.

  • "Give ‘Til it Helps - Your Company"

    Story

    My first reaction to Andrew M. Grant’s “Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Management” was “You’ve got to be kidding! Are you really telling me that if we hold hands, sing ‘Kumbaya’, and share our shovels in the sandbox, everything will be okay at the office?”
    That’s not what Grant was saying - at all – but it took an uncomfortably long time for him to get to that point.

    Grant advances the position that those who give generously, both professionally and personally, are more likely to be successful than “takers” (about 15% of people) or “matchers” ( about 70%). It’s a compelling argument, and Grant backs up his position with widely regarded studies and valid statistics. According to Grant, a business organization is well served by finding and developing givers (sharers), whose collaborative work with other givers often returns far more than the work of takers or matchers.

    Grant also points out an important fault of givers: Statistically, givers are also more likely to be low achievers or failures, if they become “doormats.” Grant has some valuable tips for doormats to recognize takers, and extract themselves from “no sum” or “negative sum” relationships.

    I listened to “Give and Take” on the heels of Sheryl Sandberg’s 2013 “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead” I wondered until halfway through the book if Grant was even considering women in the workplace. Many of the “giver” techniques he recommends are the very techniques that, when used by women leaders, erode whatever leadership foundation they have.

    Grant eventually points out that the communication techniques he is recommending will not work for anyone presenting in a leadership role (at a board meeting, for example), although they will work for a leader as a team member.

    Grant has some invaluable tips for how women can effectively negotiate higher salaries and gain respect in an organization, even while they are “givers” (or “sharers”, in my parlance).

    This book didn’t have the impact “Lean In” did for me, but it had some invaluable suggestions I will incorporate into my life. I am now much more confident about being a “giver” and recognizing “takers”.

    I had an unexpected issue with the narration of this book: Brian Keith Davis, the reader, is so smooth, he reminded me of Casey Kasem, the host of American Top 40. I listened to that radio show every Sunday night as a teenager, eagerly waiting to find out what the new Number 1 song was. Several times, after an especially positive anecdote in “Give and Take”, I expected to hear a current pop song. As I write this review, the Number 1 Billboard song Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.” That is especially apropos for this book.

    For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But today, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. It turns out that at work, most people operate as either takers, matchers, or givers. Whereas takers strive to get as much as possible from others and matchers aim to trade evenly, givers are the rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return.

  • The Art of Mental Training: A Guide to Performance Excellence, Collector's Edition

    "A Powerful Concise Classic with Expert Instruction"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up The Art of Mental Training in three words, what would they be?

    I'd start by saying this book was Excellent, Motivating, and Actionable. I learned how to set the Warrior Champion free with this great book. It taught me how to achieve the Champion Mindset with step by step instructions from Peak Performance expert D.C. Gonzalez.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way the author blended ancient wisdom with modern psychology of change technologies and sport psychology essentials while teaching with engaging stories from his life path.The details and specific instructions provided throughout by the author on how to bring together all the required elements of The Science of Success is great. He covers what to practice along with exactly how to practice the techniques that make all the difference. That's what makes this book so powerful.


    What about D. C. Gonzalez’s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for telling the story and teaching and explaining the concepts. Since he wrote the book, the narration flows with perfect tempo and tone. The audio quality is excellent. He clearly recorded the audio in a state-of the art studio with expert production and editing. He comes across as genuine, knowledgeable, and as the internationally respected expert that he is. No wonder this book is not only a best-seller but also available in several foreign languages too.


    What did you learn from The Art of Mental Training that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned exactly how to achieve the Champion Mindset.

    I learned exactly how to gain the Mental Edge over the competition or challenging situations.

    I learned the exact strategies that lead to higher levels of performance and the author provided me with all the step by step instructions I needed in order to implement them and use them in my daily life.

    I learned exactly how to improve my self-belief, self-confidence, performance, and how to achieve at higher levels at whatever is important to me.

    I learned how to change my mental state from a disempowered state into the totally empowered state of a Champion ready to dominate.

    I learned about Imagineering, The Critical Three, Focused Breathing, the importance of deep Mental Relaxation sessions and exactly how to practice in order to improve performance results and achievements.

    I learned how to approach controlling anger, how to deal with losing and real adversity.I learned how to beat my Fear of Failure.

    I learned techniques to Control Fear, and how to stay cool under pressure.

    I learned how to shut down the Internal Critic. How to throttle my intensity before and during my event so I don't sabotage my performance.

    I learned how to get out of my own way.

    This book helped me pinpoint my dreams and how to properly set goals to achieve them. It taught me how to take the steps necessary and to do the work that is required.

    I learned how to find the quite mind and that internal state from which peak performance springs forth.

    I learned what to do and how to achieve the ability to perform in the present moment.

    I learned how a Champion prepares to win.

    The list goes on. That's why this book is so well received by people who demand exact instructions on how to become the best that they can be without getting bogged down with research details that don't help one learn.

    Instead Gonzalez packs this concise and easy to read book with detailed instructions, insight, sport psychology excellence, and stories that teach. It's entertaining and powerful.


    Any additional comments?

    Take action - listen to and enjoy this great little book. It's all memorable, motivational, inspiring and worthwhile but the ending especially hit home with me. This is one book I will listen to again and again.

  • "The Tyranny of Pop Economics"

    44 of 46 helpful votes

    A solid survey of behavioral economics literature related to the premise that the wide range of choices we have (what to read, how to read it, what rating to give it, where to post our review) actually ends up making us unhappier (tyranny of small decisions). Schwartz's summary is similar to a lot of those pop-economic books that seem to pop up regularly and sell quite well because they both tell us something we kinda already suspected, but also gently surprise us with counter-intuitive ideas at the same time. We are surprised, we are also a little validated: just little bit of supply with a very light touch demand.

    This book belongs snug on the bookshelf next to: anything by Malcolm Gladwell, Freakonomics, Predictably Irrational, Nudge, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me), etc. All interesting, all worth the time (as long as the time is < 5 hrs), but none of them are brilliant. They are all Gladwell-like in their reductionism (this is why they all sell so well to the business community and are pimped heavily by Forbes to TED). I am both attracted and repelled by the form. They seem to span the fissure between academic and pop, between economics and self-help. I read them and I end up feeling like I know a bit more about myself, and NOW I'm just disappointed in that bastard for a couple more rational reasons.

    By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counterintuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on the important ones and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

Jesus suffers freely but does not pass on the pain. He forgives, which destroys the death that confronts us. He says, “No one else is your problem. You are the locus of conversion and transformation.”

    Modern life can seem like being lost in a jungle. With distractions and dangers emerging from every direction, it's easy to lose focus. Over time, we lose touch with one of our most powerful, purposeful, God-given attributes - the desire to be fruitful and multiply, what Bishop T. D. Jakes calls our "instinct for increase". Combining historical, cultural, and personal examples with biblical insights, in Instinct Bishop Jakes outlines how to rediscover your natural aptitudes and reclaim the wisdom of your past experiences.

    On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.

    Do you feel like you're stuck? Do you feel alone? Do you live in fear that your struggles might push others away? Do you wonder if your faith is a fraud because of the emptiness in your soul? Are you weary of trying to play by the rules and pretend that everything is okay? In Love Well, Jamie George confronts the popular heresy that God's children are meant to live a life absent of pain, sorrow, or conflict. On the contrary, Jamie passionately describes brokenness as a divine gift and a necessary God-ordained path to experiencing true joy and genuine redemption.

    Tutti gli aspetti caratteristici delle stagioni sono da considerarsi archetipi legati alle funzioni umane: l’uomo al suo esordio sulla Terra ha avuto le stagioni come unico riferimento per interpretare la vita, le sue difficoltà, e con le stagioni ha scandito il proprio tempo, le fasi della sua esistenza. L’audiolibro propone quat-tro visualizzazioni che partendo dagli elementi tipici di ogni stagione conducono delicatamente e gradualmente in una condizione di rilassamento e scoperta profonda di sé.

    If you are bored and unfulfilled by dry and overly worthy self-help manuals, then this is the audiobook for you! Listen to this and take a very different look at yourself! Former SAS hero Andy McNab and eminent psychologist Professor Kevin Dutton are unlikely partners. As Oxford academic and bestselling author of The Wisdom of Psychopaths, Kevin Dutton has plenty of experience of psychopaths, but he'd never met anyone quite like Andy McNab, decorated war hero and special forces warrior.

    L’audiolibro propone la visualizzazione guidata sulla primavera per il tuo rilas-samento e per favorire la ricarica della tua energia. La visualizzazione guidata conduce delicatamente e gradualmente in una condizione di rilassamento e sco-perta profonda di sé. La visualizzazione sulla primavera guida a riattivare le funzioni degli organi e soprattutto delle articolazioni utilizzando la propria at-tenzione come un balsamo o una carezza. Si tratta di un risveglio paragonabile a quello che la natura compie in primavera.
