Anxiety Disorders: Mental Illness or Normal?

Summary

Generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), PTSD, panic disorder... 
The current worldview of these problems is driven by the medical model and the belief that they are (mental) illnesses caused by something going wrong in our brain and that the answer lies in 'fixing' the thing that has gone wrong. 
However, take the man in his early twenties, whose father constantly put him down and criticized him with such venom as a child that he's now petrified others will do the same… is his (social phobia) thinking really dis-ordered? Has something simply gone wrong in his brain? 
...or is there a better explanation? And a better solution?

    Time management remains a huge challenge for most people. This book shares the habits and processes used by top leaders worldwide to minimize distractions and maximize accomplishments. 
     
    In researching more than 1,260 managers and executives from more than 108 different organizations, Steve and Rob Shallenberger discovered that 68 percent of them feel like their number one challenge is time management, yet 80 percent don't have a clear process for how to prioritize their time.  
     
    Drawing on their forty years of leadership research, this book offers three powerful habits that the top 10 percent of leaders use to Do What Matters Most. These three high performance habits are developing a written personal vision, identifying and setting Roles and Goals, and consistently doing Pre-week Planning. And Steve and Rob make an audacious promise: these three habits can increase anyone's productivity by at least 30 to 50 percent. For organizations, this means higher profits, happier employees, and increased innovation. For individuals, it means you'll find hours in your week that you didn't know were there—imagine what you could do! 
     
    You will learn how acquiring this skillset turned an “average” employee into her company's top producer, enabled a senior vice president to reignite his team and achieve record results, transformed a stressed-out manager's work and home life, helped a CEO who felt like he'd lost his edge regain his fire and passion, and much more. By implementing these simple and easy-to-understand habits, supported by tools like the Personal Productivity Assessment, you will learn how to lead a life by design, not by default. You'll feel the power that comes with a sense of control, direction, and purpose.
