Do you ride the escalator-or take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world"-one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end-and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go. How do successful people stay focused and achieve results? This lively and insightful guide presents a simple program for taking the stairs-that is, for overcoming the temptations of quick fixes and procrastination, conquering creative avoidance, and transcending personal setbacks in order to tackle the work that leads to real success. Whatever your goals are, Rory Vaden's proven approach will get you there-one stair at a time.

You never know what life may throw at you. It is like playing a game of baseball; you have to be ready to hit the ball when it comes no matter how fast it comes. The goal is to not miss your chance because you want to win, so in life you have to stay focused, be prepared for whatever comes your way, and keep your head up so that you do not miss your opportunities. Always remember that your life is in your hands, and the only person that has control over it is yourself. It does not matter how long it takes as long as you are still breathing. You still got time. Success has no limit!

What if I told you Operational Excellence is not about learning and applying, but unlearning and abandoning? One-size-fits-all strategies, management, and production systems try to impose their behavioral codes. The results could only be perfect if employees were machines that worked according to preloaded software. However, people act by their feelings. They feel depending on how they think and think according to their desires and beliefs. Systems often ignore humans and try to drive their behavior. But to realize the true potential, we must understand the human condition and utilize the non-productive energy that cannot be visualized and eliminated by systems like Lean and 6-Sigma. If systems cannot measure the problems they create, they cannot reach excellence. Developing a Toyota like culture takes decades. Still, there is a way. You don't need to learn anything new for Operational Excellence. It is all about avoiding mistakes. Most managers have similar goals, make similar mistakes, fail, and learn the same things. With the unique combination of Western Philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience, this book decodes the secrets of Operational Excellence based on the experience of a former Toyota General Manager who learned TPS in Japan and successfully implemented it in multiple automotive OEMs. Instead of telling what to do to achieve probable success, I decrypt what not to do to avoid guaranteed failures. If the only source of knowledge is experience as Einstein put it, this book can save you many years of trial and error and common failures. Reviews "5S was once 4S, we added sustain to cope with cultural differences surrounding discipline. The 8 wastes were once the 7 wastes, we added the 8th to cope with cultural differences surrounding respect for humanity. These are both excellent examples of how we often detract from wisdom by adding to it. Thinking we can improve things we don't yet understand has led people down the wrong path for time immemorial. Early in this book, Levent Turk grabs this error in thinking and nails it to the wall with this line; Human potential is not something we need to unleash, but rather, something we frequently block... the rest of the book just gets better from that point forward. The author's firsthand training in Toyota, Japan, senior leadership positions in Toyota over 15 years, and 12 years' experience implementing TPS into non-Toyota production environments provides this book with solid foundations. If this were the book we'd inherited in the 90s, maybe we would now be surrounded by leaders who realise a high-performance culture is more to do with their own beliefs in what good looks like and the conditions they create for human brains to survive in ... and not about training tools and tracking KPIs. What others take a whole book to say, Levent Turk captures in a single paragraph or sentence. This is a book of a 1000 books. If you are in a leadership position and want to create a high-performance culture, do yourself a favour. Hang onto every word, ponder every page, digest, understand, reflect. You will not find a better way to spend your time." David Bovis "Levent Turk has written a remarkable book, one that is truly unique in the genre of TPS and Lean. More than a reflection of a lifetime in business, it is a synthesis of ideas woven into a rich tapestry of valuable insights that readers will enjoy reflecting on and putting into action." Professor Bob Emiliani

While competitive natural selection is widely assumed to be evolution's prime mover, Weiss shows how life generally works on the basis of cooperation. He reveals that focus on competition and cooperation is largely an artifact of compression of time--a distortion that dissolves when life is viewed from developmental and evolutionary time scales.

Being able to perform any task with full attention has become one of the great unspoken-about challenges of modern life. As our culture has become more high-speed, techno-stressed, information-cluttered and media-saturated, we are getting pushed out of our focus zones without even realising it. If you work in a modern office, it is likely you are suffering from 'information fatigue syndrome', which means that even naturally bright and creative people are rendered incapable of making swift decisions, problem-solving efficiently or able to maintain appropriate energy levels. Award-winning psychologist Lucy Jo Palladino offers practical solutions for anyone juggling too much, who finds themselves in a state of 'continuous partial attention', seemingly unable to do any one task with full concentration. In order to help people combat the negative aspects of 'always-on' information culture, Palladino has come up with a new set of skills that will help readers beat distraction and win the fight against information overload. She provides eight sets of 'keys' that will unlock your best attention and help you balance adrenaline levels, even when you are under pressure or facing dull tasks. Rooted in sports performance psychology, yet practical and user-friendly, Palladino's cutting-edge methods will help you stay focused and enhance your performance in all areas of daily life where concentration is required.
