Or worse, you are mired in "Bad Work"—endless meetings and energy-draining bureaucratic traps.Do More Great Work gets to the heart of the problem: Even the best performers are spending less than a fraction of their time doing "Great Work"—the kind of innovative work that pushes us forward, stretches our creativity, and truly satisfies us.

In fifteen exercises, Do More Great Work shows how you can finally do more of the work that engages and challenges you, that has a real impact, that plays to your strengths—and that matters.The exercises are "maps"—brilliantly simple visual tools that help you find, start and sustain Great Work, revealing how to:Find clues to your own Great Work—they’re all around youLocate the sweet spot between what you want to do and what your organization wants you to doGenerate new ideas and possibilities quicklyBest manage your overwhelming workloadDouble the likelihood that you’ll do what you want to doAll it takes is ten minutes a day, a pencil and a willingness to change.

    "If you’ve tried and failed at: Losing weight, finding your ideal career, attracting your true love, being financially independent, or anything else, I want you to know that you aren’t lazy or dumb or a loser or born with bad luck. The truth is, you’ve just been programmed incorrectly. Once you follow the steps in this book and create some new habits you’re going to see how incredibly easy it is to finally succeed in life!" 
    The mind is an incredible thing. It’s capable of storing more information than a roomful of computers. It remembers the way things look, smell, sound, feel and taste. It can help you get ahead in life or keep you tied to the past. Unfortunately, the brain is also guilty of faulty programming. 
    By the age of five you’ve already received 50% of your emotional programming. The rest of your life you add to it, but imagine going through your days, weeks, months and years with most of your emotional outlook based on that of a five-year old! Even if you had the most stress-free and loving upbringing, is it wise to allow a small child to take the driver’s seat? Of course not. 
    In this no-nonsense book I’ll show you how to change the programming in your mind at such a deep level that success is not only possible, but it’s virtually guaranteed!

    "The book is clearly written for the general reader and includes many descriptions of trance experiences. It may serve as a good introduction to the nature and appeal of the shamanic revival in modern Western cultures." —Theological Book Review"... a case study in experiential anthropology that offers a unique mix of autobiography, mythology, experiential research, and archaeological data to support a challenging thesis—that certain body postures may help induce specific trance states." —Shaman’s Drum"This is a spellbinding and exceptionally readable book by an extraordinary woman." —Yoga Journal"And suddenly the understanding of my own vision washed over me like a mighty wave... For life or for death, I was committed to that mighty realm of which I was shown a brief reminder, the world where all was forever motion and emergence, that realm where the spirits ride the wind." —from the PrologueGoodman reexamines our notions of the nature of reality by studying the ritual postures of native art assumed by her subjects during trance states. For readers desiring to discover this world of ancient myths, she has included a practical guide on how to achieve such ecstatic experiences.
