In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

This story breaks stereotypes, but more importantly it is a blueprint for those who want achievement but assume that it's out of their reach.

It's refreshing to see what boredom can help innovate.
The biggest lesson to me is that when there's no more room for dreaming big Hsieh got bored and moved on to something that ignited his passion. Great lesson in being fearless

Today's Chief Information Officers must be an entirely new breed of technology leader. With ever-changing demands from the business, and in an increasingly technology-centric business environment, CIOs must find game-changing innovations and process improvements that make a real impact on the bottom line. Business executives need their CIOs to be real partners - speaking the language of the business and donning their strategist caps - not just commodity managers.

Most people who want to get better—at hitting golf shots, negotiating with clients, delivering presentations, or any other field of endeavor—seek out new information. They read a book, take a class, hire an expert tutor. But as Alan Fine has learned from many years of coaching athletes and businesspeople, this “outside-in” approach often doesn’t produce the results people want. More information becomes a distraction rather than a solution, and high performance remains elusive.

The processes and tools described sound good and in line with many emotional intelligence programs but this is far more focused. However, in my opinion, to make best use of the tools documents or worksheets available on the website is required.

The Apple iPad is out and people are buying it up so fast that they can barely keep the thing on the shelves. You have probably seen people on Twitter, YouTube or Facebook all bragging about their new little toy if they were lucky enough to get one.While the iPad is an extremely cool piece of technology, there's something even cooler about it..
