168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think
168 Hours
You Have More Time Than You Think
Paperback      ISBN: 159184410x

It's an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are starved for time. We tell ourselves we'd like to read more, get to the gym regularly, try new hobbies, and accomplish all kinds of goals. But then we give up because there just aren't enough hours to do it all. Or if we don't make excuses, we make sacrifices- taking time out from other things in order to fit it all in. There has to be a better way...and Laura Vanderkam has found one. After interviewing dozens of successful, happy people, she realized that they allocate their time differently than most of us. Instead of letting the daily grind crowd out the important stuff, they start by making sure there's time for the important stuff. When plans go wrong and they run out of time, only their lesser priorities suffer. Vanderkam shows that with a little examination and prioritizing, you'll find it is possible to sleep eight hours a night, exercise five days a week, take piano lessons, and write a novel without giving up quality time for work, family, and other things that really matter.

How to Deliver on Time, on Budget and on Spec
Paperback      ISBN: 0749466081

By 2016, 1.2 million project management positions will need to be filled each year, according to a study by The Anderson Economic Group. Much advice exists but Tony Marks - founder of one of the largest project management training and consulting companies in Britain - offers a systematic and practical approach to guiding a project through to success. He firmly focuses on the real world, on practicality, clarity and applicability and uses a wide range of international case studies to demonstrate how best practice is applied in the world's leading organizations.

Marks structures his book around the five stages of a project lifecycle. For each phase, Defining, Appraising, Planning, Executing and Completing the project, a series of short chapters cover sections on theory, benefits and pitfalls, applications and case studies. Readers can therefore either follow through the entire process or dip into the section that reflects the current stage of their project. This systematic approach ensures that the successful delivery of a project is aligned, and stays aligned, with the organization's strategic objectives.

21 simple and easy daily rituals to help you tune into your inner wisdom so that you can start making better, more inspired decisions in your life

Like optimism, intuition can be cultivated. Research has shown that contrary to popular opinion intuition isn't something we are born with and it doesn't come naturally to everyone. Intuition is a skill that we can learn and we can get better at it the more we practise. Drawing on science, psychology and Theresa's techniques this book offers 21 simple and proven daily rituals to help you tune into your inner wisdom and start making better decisions in your life today.

Following on from the success of 21 Rituals to Change your Life readers will be encouraged to follow a daily ritual plan for a period of at least 21 days. Research shows that it takes around three weeks to ensure a daily ritual becomes entrenched at a neural level and is therefore powerful enough to change your life for the better. Each of the intuition-boosting rituals are simple and easy to understand and can be incorporated into everyday life in a matter of moments. Most importantly they are enjoyable and rewarding, with, external benefits or internal insights becoming obvious within days.

Combining science, esoteric arts, the power of ritual and the accessibility of popular psychology, this easy-to-read guide will engage, motivate and inspire.

The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week
Compact Disc      ISBN: 1508296634
In 24/6, Tiffany Shlain explores how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body, and soul. Internet pioneer and renowned filmmaker Tiffany Shlain takes us on a provocative and entertaining journey through time and technology, introducing a strategy for living in our 24/7 world: turning off all screens for twenty-four hours each week. This practice, which she's done for nearly a decade with her husband and kids (sixteen and ten), has completely changed their lives, giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence. She and her family call it "Technology Shabbat." Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. With humor and wisdom, Shlain shares her story, offers lessons she has learned, and provides a blueprint for how to do it yourself. Along the way, she delves into the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures, making the case for why we need to bring this ritual back. A compelling personal story and a fascinating, far-reaching examination of the complex world we've created, 24/6 is a call to rebalance ourselves and our society.
