<b>This #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.</b><br /><br />Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?<br /><br />Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). <br /><br /> With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<p> </p><b>The inspiring, life-changing bestseller by the author of LEADERS EAT LAST and TOGETHER IS BETTER.</b><br /><br />In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time.<br />  <br /> Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over? <br />  <br /> People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.  <br />  <br /> START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY.

A lot has changed since the first edition of Your Digital Life was published back in October 2015. Operating systems have updated, cloud computing has got better, more storage and faster downloads and our digital calendars can do much more.<br /><br />While the technology has improved and new ways of doing things have been created, the principles of productivity and using our technology to make our lives easier, has not. We still need to learn the principles and we still need to learn how to use this fantastic technology. This new edition updates all the principles and workflows from the first edition. It has been completely rewritten, edited and updated to reflect the state of technology today. <br /><br />Most of us have a smartphone, a lap top and quite possibly a desk top computer too. Yet we still use our smartphone like we used our older feature phones, we have some of our files on our lap top and some on our desk top but we can't remember where they are and we have no idea what to do with the iPad we were bought for our birthday last year. We have a separate work calendar and a paper-based personal calendar. Our email inboxes are full of spam and important emails and we struggle to find our car keys in the morning when we leave for work. Sound familiar?<br /><br />Your Digital Life has been written for the everyday person who has no real interest in technology and just wants to use technology to work ‘straight out of the box' without having to think too much about how or why it works. If you want to achieve more without becoming a workaholic then this book is for you.<br /><br />Your Digital Life was born from a desire to help my clients claim their lives back. To help them regain control of their life, to show them how the amazing technology they carry around with them every day can do so much more for them and free up time so they can do the things they really want to do without any stress.<br /><br />Your Digitial Life 2.0 Will Show You How To:<br /><br />Set up a digital system that works for you and the type of person you are.<br />Set up your smartphone to get the most out of it<br />Use a to-do list manager to separate your routine tasks and project tasks to get things done on time every time.<br />Use your digital calendar more effectively<br />Create a file system so you can always find the files you need when you need them.<br />Get control of your email so that you don't live in your inbox.<br />Use false deadlines so you don't miss any real deadlines<br />Set up Evernote to work more effectively for you<br />Set up Todoist to get your to-dos better organised<br />Understand the importance of focussing on one task at a time.<br />Keep things simple and maintain your system even when things get tough. <br /><br />In this second edition, I have updated the setup guide, added better, clearer illustrations and modified some of the ideas that were discussed in the first edition. I have also introduced four new case studies, which feature four prominent people in the world of business and take a look at how they organise their working and personal lives so you can draw lessons from their achievements. <br /><br />If you are new to the world of digital productivity, or are a seasoned user and just want to get your life under control, then this book will help you. As a book, you can go through the different chapters at your own pace, and because it is in digital format you can take it with you on your phone, tablet or computer. <br />

<p><b>What if everything we think we know about how the world works--our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness, and love--are based on Brules (bullsh*t rules) that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?</b></p><p>This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest non-conformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack, and create new rules for YOUR life so you can define success on your own terms.</p><p><i>The Code of the Extraordinary Mind,</i> a <i>New York Times</i> bestseller, is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything--love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more--which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.</p><p>But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past, and redefine what happiness, purpose, and success <i>mean for you?</i></p><p><b>Not Just a Book, but a Movement</b></p><p>Blending computational thinking, integral theory, modern spirituality, evolutionary biology, and humor, personal growth entrepreneur Vishen Lakhiani provides a revolutionary 10-point framework for understanding and enhancing the human self. You will learn about <i>bending reality.</i> You will learn how to apply unique models like <i>consciousness engineering</i> to help you learn and grow at speeds like never before. You will learn to make a dent in the universe and discover your quest. This framework is based on Lakhiani's personal experiences, the 5 million people he's reached through Mindvalley, and 200 hours of interviews and questions posed to incredible minds, including Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Ken Wilber, Dean Kamen, Arianna Huffington, Michael Beckwith, and other legendary leaders.</p><p>In a unique fusion of cutting-edge ideas, personal stories, irreverence, and a brilliant teaching style, Lakhiani reveals the 10 powerful laws that form a step-by-step process that you can apply to life to shed years of struggle and elevate yourself to exceptional new heights.</p><p><b>The 10 Laws to an Extraordinary Life</b></p><p>This book challenges conventional ideas of relationships, goal-setting, mindfulness, happiness, and meaning. In a unique fusion of cutting-edge ideas, personal stories, and humorous irreverence, and not to mention, humor and <i>napkin diagrams,</i> this framework combines computational thinking with personal growth to provide a powerful framework for re-coding yourself--and replacing old, limiting models that hold you back with new, empowering beliefs and behaviors that set you on the path toward an extraordinary life. A life of more happiness and achievement than you might have dared to dream possible.</p><p>Once you discover the code, you will question your limits and realize that there are none. Step into a new understanding of the world around you and your place in it, and find yourself operating at a new, extraordinary level in every way...happiness, purpose, fulfilment, and love.</p><p><b>This Book Is a Living, Breathing Manifesto That Goes Beyond a Traditional Publication</b></p><p>For those who want more, <i>The Code of the Extraordinary Mind</i> connects to a full on immersive experience including ways for you to dive into particular chapters to unlock additional videos or training and connect with each other and the author to learn via peer-to-peer learning networks.</p>

In <i>Scaling Up</i>, Harnish and his team share practical tools and techniques for building an industry-dominating business. These approaches have been honed from over three decades of advising tens of thousands of CEOs and executives and helping them navigate the increasing complexities (and weight) that come with scaling up a venture. This book is written so everyone -- from frontline employees to senior executives -- can get aligned in contributing to the growth of a firm. There's no reason to do it alone, yet many top leaders feel like they are the ones dragging the rest of the organization up the S-curve of growth. The goal of this book is to help you turn what feels like an anchor into wind at your back -- creating a company where the team is engaged; the customers are doing your marketing; and everyone is making money. To accomplish this, <i>Scaling Up</i> focuses on the four major decision areas every company must get right: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash. The book includes a series of new one-page tools including the updated One-Page Strategic Plan and the Rockefeller Habits ChecklistTM, which more than 40,000 firms around the globe have used to scale their companies successfully -- many to $1 billion and beyond. Running a business is ultimately about freedom. <i>Scaling Up</i> shows business leaders how to get their organizations moving in sync to create something significant and enjoy the ride.</p>
