Summary

The co-founder of the Stanford d.School introduces the power of design thinking to help you achieve goals you never thought possible. 
Achievement can be learned. It’s a muscle, and once you learn how to flex it, you’ll be able to meet life’s challenges and fulfill your goals, Bernard Roth, Academic Director at the Stanford d.school contends. 
In The Achievement Habit, Roth applies the remarkable insights that stem from design thinking—previously used to solve large scale projects—to help us realize the power for positive change we all have within us. Roth leads us through a series of discussions, stories, recommendations, and exercises designed to help us create a different experience in our lives. He shares invaluable insights we can use to gain confidence to do what we’ve always wanted and overcome obstacles that hamper us from reaching our potential, including:   Don’t try—DO;   Excuses are self-defeating;   Believe you are a doer and achiever and you’ll become one;   Build resiliency by reinforcing what you do rather than what you accomplish;   Learn to ignore distractions that prevent you from achieving your goals;   Become open to learning from your own experience and from those around you;   And more. 
The brain is complex and is always working with our egos to sabotage our best intentions. But we can be mindful; we can create habits that make our lives better. Thoughtful and powerful The Achievement Habit shows you how.

    Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization? John C. Maxwell knows the answer. “The greatest leadership principle that I have ever learned in over twenty-five years of leadership,” says Maxwell, “is that those closest to the leader will determine the success level of that leader.” It’s not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you. Whether you’re the leader of a non-profit organization, small business, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level.

     The marketing world isn't what it used to be. Simply creating a good product isn't enough, and standard advertisements now just get lost amongst all the others. To get people's attention and be truly successful, you've got to stand out and get noticed-just like a purple cow.
     
     
     
    Most of us wouldn't stop and stare at something mundane, like a herd of cows. But if one of those cows happened to be bright purple, it would draw attention far and wide. As an introduction to the modern marketing world, Purple Cow works on exactly that principle, teaching you how to create and market an extraordinary product that stands out from its ordinary competitors.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
     
     
    ·      That your best potential customers should be seeking you out, and not the other way around
     
    ·      Why catering your products and ads to the majority is the worst thing you can do
     
    ·      How to expand your business once you've created a successful product.
