<div><b>Read the<i> Wall Street Journal </i>Bestseller for "cultivating intense focus" for fast, powerful performance results for achieving success and true meaning in one's professional life (Adam Grant, author of <i>Give and Take</i>). </b></div><div><br /></div><div><div>Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way.</div><div><br /></div><div>In DEEP WORK, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four "rules," for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill. </div><div><br /></div><div>1. Work Deeply</div><div>2. Embrace Boredom </div><div>3. Quit Social Media</div><div>4. Drain the Shallows</div><div><br /></div><div>A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, DEEP WORK takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories-from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air-and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. DEEP WORK is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.</div></div><div><br /></div><div><div><b>An Amazon Best Book of 2016 Pick in Business & Leadership</b></div><div><b><i>Wall Street Journal </i>Business Bestseller</b></div><div><b>A Business Book of the Week at 800-CEO-READ</b></div></div>

<p> </p><b>A <i>New York Times</i>, <i>USA Today</i>, and <i>Wall Street Journal</i> bestseller <br /></b><br /> In this iconic bestseller, popular business blogger and bestselling author Seth Godin proves that winners are really just the best quitters. Godin shows that winners quit fast, quit often, and quit without guilt—until they commit to beating the right Dip.<br /><br /> Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out fun…then gets really hard, and not much fun at all. You might be in a Dip—a temporary setback that will get better if you keep pushing. But maybe it’s really a Cul-de-Sac—a total dead end. What really sets superstars apart is the ability to tell the two apart.<br /><br /> Winners seek out the Dip. They realize that the bigger the barrier, the bigger the reward for getting past it. If you can beat the Dip to be the best, you’ll earn profits, glory, and long-term security. <br /> Whether you’re an intern or a CEO, this fun little book will help you figure out if you’re in a Dip that’s worthy of your time, effort, and talents. The old saying is wrong—winners do quit, and quitters do win.

Are you struggling to understand how you can use Instagram Stories to YOUR advantage? <br /><b>And are you just generally confused how the Instagram algorithm works?</b><br /><br />Now, everyone is freaking out a little and declaring it wildly unfair and biased what Instagram has done with the new algorithm. They messed everything up, right? They favor the rich and famous?! Us little old average Joes are sinking, and your organic reach is failing fast as you see little to no success, and your engagement and exposure diminishes day by day! It’s a pay-to-play system now and that’s just not fair, right?<br />Or wrong.<br /><br /><b>If you are facing this issue, bear with me, there IS hope!</b> <br /><br />This book will provide all the answers to your problem, and inspire you to go so much further.<br />This book covers:<br /><br /><b>Passive Income Streams:</b> How anyone can uncover the Secret Treasures within Instagram Stories.<br /><b>Active Income Streams:</b> The incredible opportunity to build financial freedom and how to automate it.<br /><b>Engagement over followers:</b> Why leading with purpose, and why focusing on engagement over followers will lead to success. <br /><b>Guide:</b> 11 ways to increase engagement dramatically.<br /><b>Your Tribe is your net worth:</b> Why focus on your tribe and how to capitalize on it, and what the difference is between followers and a tribe.<br /><b>Psychology of Instagram Engagement :</b> Learn the psychology of engagement so that you can capitalize on your followers / tribe.<br /><b>Story Telling:</b> Why Instagram Stories is so much more powerful than you think.<br /><b>Market research:</b> How to do market research and test the waters using Instagram Stories.<br /><b>Blueprint:</b> 7 Day Blueprint to grow your engagement on Instagram and turn your tribe into paying customers.<br /><br />Instagram Stories are by far the most powerful marketing vehicle at the moment.
