Are your conversations so controlled they lack the ability to connect with other people?  Do you find yourself holding back for fear of revealing too much or saying the wrong thing?  What can you do to make your conversations more real?

Tap into your intuition and speak from the heart.

Drawing on the expertise of bestselling author and communication expert, Judy Apps, The Art of Communication shows how to develop the ability to become a nuanced conversationalist – one who connects with others and is more fearless, more genuine, more engaging and more creative.  The author reveals how to communication in a meaningful way and:

– Build closer relationships and create intimacy

– Overcome the artificiality and awkwardness of your interactions

– Converse successfully with people of different backgrounds

– Get more rewarding results from your conversations

– Operate from your intuition rather than with self-consciousness and control

The Art of Communication builds your confidence so you can converse from a place where being counts more than conventional skills, and an open heart brings connection and rewards you could only dream of before.

Master Your Mind by Roger Seip and Robb Zbierski

The Blurb On The Back:

Fed up with trying to get ahead in business by working longer hours and continually racing your brain at a hundred miles an hour?  Unfortunately, success in business is spelled M-O-R-E: better results, faster growth, more revenue, greater efficiency.  Do more.  Make more.  Achieve more.  And do it now.  Master Your Mind offers an antidote to the endless (and pointless) cycle of “doing more” in order to succeed.  Throughout the book, Roger Seip and Robb Zbierski – Seip is the author of the bestselling book Train Your Brain For Success – explain how the counterintuitive approach of slowing down can help optimise your performance and get you the positive results you’ve been searching for.

Master Your Mind reveals the tactics and methods that lead to increased energy, revenue, and good health in a self-sustaining way.  The approaches presented are not pie-in-the-sky but have proven to be effective with the authors’ thousands of clients.  The book shows how to stop thinking your success relies on quantity, and start on the road to improving the quality of your effort.  The book clearly demonstrates what it takes to up-your-game by combining the right amount of effort (after all, it takes work) with a high degree of presence, focus, intentionality, and being in the “Zone”.  Filled with illustrative examples, Master Your Mind shows why slowing down your brain gives you a much better understanding of what is really going on in your head that will get your desired results.  The book also explores the obstacles that are holding you back.

Drawing on discoveries in neuroscience (the authors don’t claim to be scientists), Master Your Mind offers a basic understanding of the root causes and benefits of slowing down and includes techniques for applying the scientific lessons.  The approaches and tactics outlined in Master Your Mind work because they align with what’s most deeply important to you and they are done in a way that actually works for your brain.

Once you apply the book’s lessons and put the winning strategies into practice, you will be amazed that success will come your way with little or no extra effort.

The Free-Time Formula by Jeff Sanders

The Blurb On The Back:

How many hours have you worked this week? When you’re working, do you constantly feel stressed, rushed, and under pressure?  Has it reached the point where you delay restroom visits because three minutes away from your desk will throw everything off-schedule?  You, my friend, are overworked – and you’re not alone. We are all being asked to do more and more with less and less, and it’s all so vitally important and has to be done ASAP.  Lacking a magic wand, we work at a furious pace for hours on end, only to collapse into bed so we can wake up and do it all again tomorrow.  There is always more to be done, but the days aren’t getting any longer; something’s got to give, but don’t let it be your sanity.

The Free-Time Formula is your lifelines back to happiness, focus, and true productivity.  Action-packed and to-the-point, this sanity-saving guide will help you reclaim your days as you discover just how much power you have. Prioritising is key, but deprioritising is even more critical – and this book gives you a clear and workable framework for becoming the focused, efficient achiever you’ve been trying to be for so long.  You’ll begin with a time assessment that gauges your current levels of stress, strategies, and output, then you’ll work step-by-step toward a new daily routine that will reawaken your spirit as you start to get it all done – with time left over!

  • Gain an extra hour of free time – every day – to read, exercise, or spend time with friends and family.
  • Double your productivity without feeling overworked or overwhelmed.
  • Ask the right questions, clarify what matters, and cut out the nonsense to reclaim your day.
  • Predict and prevent distractions in order to stay on track with the important stuff.
  • Formulate a seven-day action plan for revamping your calendar and revitalising your life!

Productivity is not about cramming more “stuff” into each day.  It’s about focusing on what matters to you and your current goals, and building the habit of saying “no” when you want to.  It’s about never again missing a deadline or being late for a meeting, but also attending every single one of your kid’s recitals.  It’s about climbing the ladder while building a life, and feeling absolutely a-okay about leaving your phone in the hotel room on vacation. Life is what happens outside of work, and The Free-Time Formula helps you reformulate your day to enjoy more of it.
