Learn to design, build, and maintain an effective and fulfilling life with this unique guide from the innovative entrepreneur, speaker, and author. To create an effective space, landscapers must design, build, and maintain that space. To create an effective life, we must do the same with ourselves.

Fay uses a landscaping metaphor and an approachable, conversational style to reveal the seven steps that enabled him to find his own Sweet Spot of personal and professional success. These same steps helped Fay acquire fourteen distressed businesses and turn them into profitable environments for leadership and commerce. They prepared him to forge a partnership with the No. 1 leadership guru in the world and create the world’s fastest-growing speaking, coaching, and training team. It primed him to start several other ventures, projects, and initiatives related to his core strengths. And finally, it enabled him to create a robust life with a variety of opportunities.

The Natural Entrepreneur's Guide to Responsible, Sustainable, Joyful Work

Category: Business & Economics
"Now what am I going to do?" is a question many people ask—and leave unanswered—at critical potential turning points in their careers. Perhaps you’re a new graduate, but instead of lining up for a boring entry-level job at a big corporation, you wish you could start your own sustainable and responsible business. Or maybe you’ve been stuck in a job you hate for a few years, but you still dream of doing the thing you love and that you’re actually good at. Or maybe you’re a boomer and you’re ready for a second career, a personal venture that will represent a total change from what you’ve spent most of your work life doing. Whatever your situation, this is the book to help you get started. Finding the Sweet Spot explains how sustainable, responsible, and joyful natural enterprises differ from most jobs, and it provides the framework for building your own natural enterprise. You’ll learn how to find partners who will help make your venture successful, how to do world-class market research, how to innovate, how to build resilience into your enterprise, and how to avoid the land mines that sink so many small businesses. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to find the "sweet spot" where your gifts, your passions, and your purpose intersect. And make no mistake: our world needs your talent. The current economic system and the educational system that feeds into it have let us down and are destroying our planet. We need a blossoming of natural enterprises—connected, collaborating, and supporting ventures—to form a dynamic new natural economy. Is such a thing possible? Inventor, entrepreneur, and humanist Buckminster Fuller said: "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete." Finding the Sweet Spot presents a new model. Use it to find the work you were meant to do, thereby helping to create the world we’re meant to live—and make a living—in.
Wie Querdenker und Business-Ikonen Erfolg beschleunigen
Author: Shane Snow
Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH
Category: Business & Economics
In SMARTCUTS nimmt der New Yorker Journalist Shane Snow das unkonventionelle Verhalten diverser Overachiever der Geschichte unter die Lupe: Menschen und Unternehmen, die in unwahrscheinlich kurzer Zeit unglaubliche Dinge zuwege bringen. Und er zeigt, wie jeder von uns mit »Smartcuts« seine Gewohnheiten überdenken und seinen Erfolg beschleunigen kann. Warum ziehen manche Unternehmen in wenigen Monaten Millionen Kunden an, während andere floppen? Wie schafften es Alexander der Große, YouTube-Phänomen Michelle Phan und Tonight-Show-Moderator Jimmy Fallon, sich in kürzerer Zeit an die Spitze zu katapultieren, als die meisten von uns auf die nächste bescheidene Gehaltserhöhung warten müssen? Wie setzen sich schnell wachsende Unternehmen, Weltklasse-Herzchirurgen und Underdog-Vermarkter von der Masse ab? In allen Bereichen gibt es Querdenker, die wie Computerhacker neue und bessere Wege finden, um Erstaunliches zu bewerkstelligen. Seit jeher werden die größten Erfolge von jenen Menschen errungen, die sich weigern, den ausgetretenen Pfaden zu folgen, und sich über die Norm hinwegsetzen. In SMARTCUTS widerlegt Snow so manches vermeintliches Erfolgsrezept; er zeigt, warum es zwecklos ist, die »Mühlen zu durchlaufen«, warum Schulkinder keine Multiplikationstabellen auswendig zu lernen brauchen und warum es einfacher ist, ein großes anstelle eines kleinen Unternehmens aufzubauen. SMARTCUTS berichtet von Innovatoren, die es gewagt haben, anders zu arbeiten, und bietet Ihnen praktische Tipps. Sie lernen, wie Sie unternehmerische und technologische Begriffe auf den Erfolg anwenden können und wie auch Sie durch Nachahmung Ihren Wettbewerbern den Rang ablaufen, Ihr Unter nehmen wachsen lassen und Gesellschaftsprobleme schneller lösen können, als Sie es für möglich gehalten hätten.

Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH
In dem wohl wichtigsten Managementbuch des Jahres (Hamburger Abendblatt) definiert Covey Führung neu. Wir leben im Zeitalter der Wissensarbeit. Doch wir verwenden immer noch das Führungsmodell des Industriezeitalters. Wir managen Menschen wie Dinge, betrachten Mitarbeiter als Kostenfaktor und motivieren mit Zuckerbrot und Peitsche. Und wundern uns, warum unsere Mitarbeiter und Unternehmen in der Mittelmäßigkeit verharren. Dabei ruft unsere Gegenwart nach Sinnhaftigkeit und leidenschaftlicher UmSetzung. Stephen R. Covey, Autor des Management-Klassikers Die 7 Wege zur Effektivität, zeigt in seinem neuen Werk, dass dafür der Mensch mit all seinen Potenzialen im Mittelpunkt stehen muss. Gute Führungskräfte helfen anderen dabei, ihr Potenzial zu entwickeln. Und wissen auch, dass sie bei sich selbst beginnen müssen, wenn sie Veränderung wollen. Dazu braucht es Vision, Disziplin, Leidenschaft und Gewissen. Das Buch bietet eine Fülle von Anregungen für alle, die ihr Führungsverhalten selbstkritisch überdenken wollen.
Finding Purpose in Life After Sports
Author: Joi Walker
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
As athletes, we all go through it, but for some reason, no one is really talking about it. Life after sports can be a dark and confusing place as we attempt to figure out who we are without sports. What are you supposed to do with your life when your athletic career comes to an end? For years the majority of your self-confidence came from the fact that you were physically gifted and had the ability to compete among the elite. At some point athletes must realize that they are good for more than just making three-point shots, scoring goals, hitting home runs, and catching touchdown passes. The Sweet Spot: Finding Purpose In Life After Sports will help current student-athletes, former athletes, coaches, and even administrators make the transition to life after sports a little smoother. In this book, athletes will learn how to redefine themselves and how to take the lessons they learned from sports and apply them to their careers. They will also encounter the stories of many former athletes who have been in their shoes and successfully made the transition. Many student-athletes never pause to consider what life will be like once their playing career comes to an end. The truth is there will come a time when life no longer revolves around game day, practice, film sessions, team meetings, and long bus rides. Once you can no longer compete at a high level, will you be ready to attack your career and thrive as you chase your new dream or will you be like a deer caught in headlights? The choice is up to you. Are you ready to discover The Sweet Spot in your life?
