    Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way. A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than 20 years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work, and ultimately predicts whether or not we will fulfull our potential.

    This book is awesome. It is simple, easy to understand and is packed with jewels of information about how to live and understand ourselves so we can get past the bs and actually enjoy life. I highly recommend this book to the world. I feel it should be recommended reading for every human.

    From Daniel H. Pink, the author of the groundbreaking best seller A Whole New Mind, comes his next big idea book: a paradigm-changing examination of what truly motivates us and how to harness that knowledge to find greater satisfaction in our lives and our work.

    Michael says: "Not as good as A Whole New Mind"
    "Brilliant, with a lot regurgitated material."
    Overall

    I found it hard to follow much of this book having read most of the books pink cites. If you are not up to date on a lot of mid set books, then this is a decent synopsis. I patently disagree with several of his examples as case studies because they use very faulty logic. Comparing the ability of a Harvard MBA to that of a poor indian farmer fails in so many ways. In that he cited the work correctly yes, I agree, but the work is myopic and fails on many levels as do most authors who use case studies to bring about broad sweeping generalities about society. This is a decent read and cites some very profound and amazing work.

  • The Three Laws of Performance: : Rewriting the Future of Your Organization and Your Life

    Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes, and failures. These already-written futures determine and shape the level of performance that's possible for individuals and organizations. Authors Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan crack the code on rewriting the future for people and organizations, elevating performance to unprecedented levels.

    Overall

    I have been searching for the best way to do things for most of my life. Going through the "struggles of everyday life." After reading this thier are no more struggles. Just a new view on how the world occurs to me as a result of how I choose to see it. I thought I was a man of high integrity, with principles and values, and no one would question this. I found that I was out of integrity to my word with myself. I had never heard it like that before. You have it or you don't was my world. Thier was no compassion. Just get it done. What I got is that integrity isn't an all the time thing. It is an in or out fluid kind of thing and just becuase I cannot keep my word does not mean that I cannot honor it and then restore my ingrity. All without the stress and anxiety that used to come with it. Now being wrong really is an opportunity for growth, not just some cliche I use in my office. It is my hope and sincerest desire that the world take on the technology in this book. It started with me.
    I am going to continue it with coaching from Landmark Education, and grow for real this time. Not just as a person, but as a soul or life force that exist within the community of the world. No barriers or descriptors will stop me from being relatable to people.
