<b>The instant <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller<br />#1 <i>Wall Street Journal</i> Business Bestseller<br />Instant <i>Washington Post</i> Bestseller<br /><br />"Brims with a surprising amount of insight and practical advice." --<i>The Wall Street Journal</i><br /><br />Daniel H. Pink, the #1 bestselling author of <i>Drive</i> and <i>To Sell Is Human</i>, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home.聽<b><br /></b></b><br />Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of "when" decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.<br /><br />Timing, it's often assumed, is an art. In W<i>hen: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing</i>, Pink shows that timing is really a science.<br /><br />Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology, and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work, and succeed. How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores? How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? Why is singing in time with other people as good for you as exercise? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married?<br /><br />In <i>When</i>, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淪ignificant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.鈥?鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <br /> <b>Ray Dalio, one of the world鈥檚 most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he鈥檚 developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business鈥攁nd which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><br /><br />In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine鈥檚 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater鈥檚 exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as 鈥渁n idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.鈥?It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio鈥攚ho grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood鈥攖hat he believes are the reason behind his success.<br /> <br /> In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he鈥檚 learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book鈥檚 hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of 鈥渞adical truth鈥?and 鈥渞adical transparency,鈥?include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating 鈥渂aseball cards鈥?for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they鈥檙e seeking to achieve.<br /> <br />Here, from a man who has been called both 鈥渢he Steve Jobs of investing鈥?and 鈥渢he philosopher king of the financial universe鈥?(<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you鈥檒l find in the conventional business press.

<b><b>The #1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller.聽</b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don鈥檛 miss the hourlong Netflix special聽<i>Bren茅 Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><br /><br />From thought leader Bren茅 Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />聽<br /> <i>鈥淚t is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>鈥濃€?lt;/i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Bren茅 Brown聽PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: 鈥淲hen we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.鈥?lt;br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It鈥檚 about courage. In a world where 鈥渘ever enough鈥?dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It鈥檚 even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there鈥檚 a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena鈥攚hether it鈥檚 a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.

<p><strong>SALE: Only 99 cents for a limited time!</strong><br /></p><p><strong>Elastic habits are easier to form, more impactful, more fun, and more resilient than habits formed with any other strategy.</strong><br /></p><p>These flexible habits are just as easy to form as a mini habit, but with 3x the results (or more). To explain how and why this is possible, here's a hypothetical scenario involving my greatest fear in the world... bears.<br /></p><p>Imagine you鈥檙e trail running in the woods, trying to set a new personal best time. Out of the corner of your eye, you see a large brown object moving towards you with great speed. And now it鈥檚 upon you. You gaze up in horror at a roaring mother grizzly bear. What do you do?<br /></p><ol><li>Continue running (adrenaline boost!)</li><li>Tackle the bear</li><li>Play dead</li><li>Call out 鈥淛umanji鈥?lt;br /></li></ol><p>Go ahead and play dead. It gives you the best chance of surviving a grizzly attack. But if you treated this situation as we are taught to treat goals and habits, you wouldn鈥檛 have that option. You鈥檇 have just one option, because most goals and habits are unchanging. So here鈥檚 your one option.<br /></p><p>1. Continue running (certain death)<br /></p><p>You had a plan (trail running), but your environment changed (momma bear). Whenever that happens, you must <em>adapt</em> to the unexpected situation for the best result. In the case of a bear attack, it can save your life. In the case of behavior change, it can save your habits.聽<br /></p><p>This concept doesn鈥檛 only apply in a negative way, either. There will be times in which a situation is <em>more</em> favorable than anticipated, in which case, adapting to seize the opportunity is in your best interest. But if you follow any other habit book鈥檚 advice, they will tell you to do the same thing every day, to be inflexible.聽<br /></p><h3><strong>The Result of Static Habits</strong><br /></h3><p>If your static habit is small, you鈥檒l achieve remarkable consistency (mini habits). But on days in which you can do more, it will feel (and possibly be) <em>wrong</em> to aim for something that easy. Over time, this may frustrate you.<br /></p><p>If your static habit is large, you鈥檒l have occasional big wins, but whenever life sends you a figurative grizzly bear, you鈥檒l fail and your habit may die young.<br /></p><p>Small habits are the best choice if you choose to form a static habit, but here鈥檚 why you shouldn鈥檛.<br /></p><h3><strong>The Power of Elastic Habits</strong><br /></h3><p>No two days are the same. By making your habits elastic, you can adapt your aim to conquer every unique day of your life. You will still be surprised by the crazy happenings of life, no doubt, but you will no longer be <em>unprepared</em> for them.<br /></p><p>Elastic habits give you an answer for every situation. They destroy excuses naturally, by saying, 鈥淥kay. How about doing this instead?鈥?If normal habits are a hammer, elastic habits are your grandfather鈥檚 garage, a magical place with a tool for every need. It鈥檚 not a burden to have a hammer, a wrench, <em>and</em> a screwdriver鈥攜ou simply select the one you need for the job.<br /></p><p>In this book, you鈥檒l find a comprehensive framework of elasticity for habit building. Elastic materials are stronger than rigid, brittle materials because they can adapt to pressure. The same is true for habits. Any dread or sense of monotony you鈥檝e felt about forming habits will disappear, because this system is dynamic and exciting.<br /></p><p>Your elastic habits can survive threats and thrive in favorable circumstances. There鈥檚 no downside because they鈥檙e simply a smarter version of the habits we typically try to form. <br /></p><p><strong>Read <em>Elastic Habits</em>, and you鈥檒l soon discover the power and freedom of smarter, flexible habits that adapt to your day.</strong></p>

<b>From the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Start With Why </i>and <i>Leaders Eat Last</i>, a bold framework for leadership in today鈥檚 ever-changing world.</b><br /> 聽<br /> How do we win a game that has no end? Finite games, like football or chess, have known players, fixed rules and a clear endpoint. The winners and losers are easily identified. Infinite games, games with no finish line, like business or politics, or life itself, have players who come and go. The rules of an infinite game are changeable while infinite games have no defined endpoint. There are no winners or losers鈥攐nly ahead and behind.聽<br /> 聽<br /> The question is, how do we play to succeed in the game we鈥檙e in?<br /> 聽<br /> In this revelatory new book, Simon Sinek offers a framework for leading with an infinite mindset. On one hand, none of us can resist the fleeting thrills of a promotion earned or a tournament won, yet these rewards fade quickly. In pursuit of a Just Cause, we will commit to a vision of a future world so appealing that we will build it week after week, month after month, year after year. Although we do not know the exact form this world will take, working toward it gives our work and our life meaning. <br /> 聽<br /> Leaders who embrace an infinite mindset build stronger, more innovative, more inspiring organizations. Ultimately, they are the ones who lead us into the future.

<b>The updated edition of聽the book that has changed millions of lives聽with its insights into the growth mindset.</b><br /><br /> After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a <i>fixed mindset</i>鈥攖hose who believe that abilities are fixed鈥攁re less likely to flourish than those with a <i>growth mindset</i>鈥攖hose who believe that abilities can be developed. <i>Mindset</i> reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.<br /><br /> In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love鈥攖o transform their lives and your own.<br /><br /> <b>Praise for <i>Mindset</i></b><br /><br />鈥淎 good book is one whose advice you believe.
