As a leading expert on creativity, Tina Seelig has continually explored what we can each do to unleash our entrepreneurial spirit. In Insight Out, she offers us the tools to make our ideas a reality. She clearly defines the concepts of imagination, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurism, showing how they affect each other and how we can unlock the pathway from imagination to implementation, where our ideas then gain the power to inspire the imaginations of others.
Drawing on more than a decade of experience as a professor at the Stanford University School of Engineering, Seelig shows readers how to work through the steps of imagination, ideation, innovation, and implementation, using each step to build upon the last, to ultimately create something complex, interesting, and powerful. Coping with today’s constant change, everyone needs these skills to conquer challenges and seize the opportunities that arise. Seelig irrefutably demonstrates that these skills can be taught, and shows us how to mobilize our own energy and bring new ideas to life.

For an organization to go from being a one-man home-brewing operation to a company that produces almost 700,000 barrels of beer per year and has been proclaimed by critics to be Among the best brewed anywhere in the world well, he is surely doing something right. The book will explore the Sierra Nevada way, as exemplified through Ken Grossman, which includes an emphasis on sustainability, nonconformity, following ones passion, and doing things the right way, all of which is packaged in a great and true American success story.

Work. Sleep. Fitness. Family. Friends. Pick Three.
In an increasingly demanding world, we've been told that we can do everything—maintain friendships, devote ourselves to work, spend time with family, stay fit, and get enough sleep. We just need to learn to balance it all. Randi Zuckerberg doesn't believe in being well-balanced. We can't do it all every day, she contends, and trying to do so only leaves us frustrated and feeling inadequate. But we can succeed if we Pick Three.
Randi first introduced the concept of Pick Three in a tweet—"The Entrepreneur's Dilemma"—that went viral. Now, in this book, she expands on her philosophy and inspires others to follow her lead. From entrepreneurs to professionals, busy parents to students, Randi can help everyone learn to reject the unrealistic burden of balance and enjoy success in their own lives—by picking the most important areas to focus on in any given day.
This practical handbook includes stories from Randi's career learning that there's no such thing as a perfect balance—as well as insights and examples from other professionals at the top of the biggest businesses in Silicon Valley, new moms searching for permission to focus on family, and recent graduates convinced they should have it all under control, including Arianna Huffington, Reshma Saujani, Laurie Hernandez, and Brad Takei. We can't have it all every day, and that's okay, Randi reminds us. Pick Three is her much-needed guide to learning to embrace the well-lopsided life.
