Summary

Stop! Don't Go There! Mistakes Made by Top Leaders, provides a framework that should permeate strategies to balance the imperatives of the present with the high pressure demands of the future. The case in point is to focus on the organisation's core competencies rather than merely toeing the line of competitors. It, thus, offers a rich collection of hindsight vision from an elite and diverse group of leaders, juxtaposed with how that translates into actions in the current scenario. 
Based on in-depth interviews with more than 30 high profile leaders, the book provides valuable insights generated through the mistakes made by these luminaries. Be it related to balancing today's exigencies with tomorrow's challenges, articulating a road map, identifying values, behaviours and metrics for sustenance or aligning with culture...leaders have candidly admitted to their shortcomings and failings. What's intriguing is that some of them, overwhelmed with the quality of interaction, confessed to outlining their mistakes, on deep reflection, right during their interview. 
The valuable lessons learnt from these cross section of leaders spanning manufacturing, IT, services, education, politics, law, the fine arts, hospitality, and SMEs, represents a unique and important perspective to guide organisations towards a long-term winning position. 
 Letting go is what enables you to move forward. Many leaders have learnt to unlearn values and traditional mindsets in order to scale heights. This book, a one-of-its-kind compendium of corporate mistakes, structured around values, mistakes and learning through first person interviews, is a must-read for leaders and managers in today's fast changing, hypercompetitive world, where unquestioned answers are being probed. 
In demonstrating a high degree of learnability, the book is a true primer for a non-linear business world riddled with discontinuities and disruptions.

    Learn The Best Concentration Techniques and Productivity Tools to Get Stuff Done 
     
    Discover How To Re-Program Yourself To Develop A Greater Focus And Achieve Your Dreams! 
    At times we say to ourselves 'I must concentrate to finish this job', we know there are many times and situations within our daily life where it is necessary to concentrate to complete the job in hand. But how many of us really know how to concentrate, how to shutout all the distractions around us, how to be consciously aware of the task in front of us. The psychologists suggest that a man thinks of sex once every 30 seconds, which means of course he can concentrate on little else. And it is also a fact that when we do concentrate it is quite often on a subject that is no good for us and has no lasting benefits. 
    Some call concentration an Art and being so it can be learnt and practiced, although the lessons and methods are fairly easy they do require a sense of discipline, but if mastered the benefits will be apparent throughout your life. Concentration also has an aspect about which most people are unaware, that is, when in deep concentration we are also connected more closely with our subconscious. This in itself can bring much understanding into our life. Many religious and philosophical practices are designed in order to stop our conscious mind being aware of the many distractions around us while contemplating, their procedures all have the one purpose of creating a deep connection initially to the subconscious and then to the higher spiritual realms. When we can fully concentrate upon a subject or a moment in time this connection opens and becomes available to us. 
    Closely associated with concentration is willpower, the relationship is totally dependent without one you cannot have the other. Think of an athlete in an Olympic running final, his willpower has sustained him in his goal of reaching the final and eventually winning. But it is at that moment just before the whistle blows where he needs his full concentration, if he allows distractions then all will be lost, the other competitors and all the spectators must be blocked from his mind. There are many other situations with which I'm sure you can imagine where both willpower and concentration are needed in equal parts. 
    How to Manifest What You Want: 
    * Get Rid of Distractions 
    * Get Comfortable 
    * Clear Your Mind 
    * Decide What You Really Want 
    * Write Down Your Desire
