    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients' offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    Story

    Awesome book ! Understanding how our brain works, makes it easy afterwards to identify what is going on in specific situations and adapt accordingly. We can feel it's based on a lot of hard science, but well adapted so that we are not overwhelmed by it.

    Thumbs up :)

    Learn to clear your mind and think like a winner. We all have so much going on. A million different projects, to-do lists longer than your arm. We all worry about things - money, deadlines. With all this buzzing around in our heads it’s often a nightmare trying to concentrate on one thing. What if someone could show you how to empty your mind of all the noise? If you could be shown how to de-clutter your mind and concentrate on one important thing? Well Jamie Smart, state-of-mind specialist, can do just that - with Clarity he will show you how to get real clarity of thought.

    Would you try another book from Jamie Smart and/or Jamie Smart?

    I am not sure - depends on the subject.I wasn't converted to a raving fan.


    What was most disappointing about Jamie Smart’s story?

    How often he repeats the same things. Sometimes, changing the context. Sometimes even not.


    Have you listened to any of Jamie Smart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first listen


    Was Clarity worth the listening time?

    The concept is worth discovering, but it's way too long. Half of it would have been enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I didn't understand the concept fully, but to me innate thinking (look it up)is just another word for mindfulness. Now making abstraction of the semantics to describe our models. The concepts and ideas of this book are great and need to be discovered by as many people as possible.

  • Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?

    There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Seth Godin? Why or why not?

    I will continue to seek Seth Godin's work, but be more careful to the content proposed.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of Seth Godin, but I have to warn you that this book is NOT about marketing as we are used to by him. It is more about the 9-5 shift worker who would like to be noticed at work.

    Now that you know that, this book might still be for you.

    Also know that I have not finished the book so maybe there's more to it.
