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.

    What’s the recipe for a happy family? A spirit of cooperation. Instilling a spirit of cooperation in children is the real secret to providing the gift of a happy childhood, being a “good” parent, and building the family you’ve always wanted.In Raising Cooperative Kids, research psychologists Marion Forgatch and Gerald Patterson, one of the original developers of Time Out, provide parenting techniques that tap deep-rooted human instincts, making them universal and easy to use no matter where you live or how your family is structured. Developed over 40 years of practice and tested in clinical and prevention trials, these skills empower parents to teach their children new behaviors, change unwanted behaviors, and reduce family conflicts. Together, Forgatch, Patterson, and Friend give parents the formula to overcome family struggles and inspire children to cooperate—from toddlerhood into their teens.Specific guidance is included for issues ranging from how to share the bathroom during the morning rush to what to do when a child misbehaves. The authors also remind us of the importance of play—enjoying each other and sharing time and activities together is the cornerstone of a connected, happy family.

    Unlock The Keys To Fight Fatigue And Get More Energy All Day
     
    Having enough energy is vital to getting through the day.
     
    For professionals, that means being able to check off the to-do list and clear off the desk of work that has been piling up. For students, that means being able to manage all that studying while also being able to maintain a social life.
     
    And for everybody else and in between, simply going through the daily motion of life is exhausting, and by the time they are done for the day, they are ready to crash in bed and don't have the energy to enjoy the things they love but only to return to the grind the next day.
     
    What's the worst part of all? Most folks can't even make it through the day with their limited supply of exhausted energy, with so many things left on their plates to do before the afternoon slump hits. As a result, their work begins to suffer and fatigue has begun a norm causing detriments to their health.
     
    That is why it's crucial to be able to manually recharge your energy when necessary, and that can be easily accomplished using simple energy hacks.
     
    In “Energy Hacks,” discover how to:
     
    - Shock your body awake instantly with icy cold water
     
    - Apply the ancient art of acupressure points for energy
     
    - Rejuvenate your mind with specific breathing patterns
     
    - Overcome tiredness and fatigue by doing self-massages
     
    - Incorporate an energy-boosting elixir for 24-hour energy
     
    - Substitute the morning cup of Joe with better alternatives
     
    - Refuel your energy tank by using a surprising indulgence
     
    - Experience the incredible energizing effect of super foods
     
    - Fight the all-too common afternoon slump with power naps
     
    - Get more energy by absorbing the sensation of certain colors
     
    …and more for you to unlock!
     
    You shouldn't be surprised that your energy level also dictates your productivity level of how much you will accomplish for the day and every day that follows for the rest of your life. It's understandable when there is too much to do and never enough time, however, when it comes to not enough energy, that is a different story that you can control.
     
    If you are constantly burning up all your energy that you end up crashing, it's time to upgrade your human battery for unlimited renewed energy.
