55 Fast-Acting Strategies for Long-Lasting Success. Learn practical, no-nonsense strategies for getting ahead and achieving your own personal success.
Author: Ryan Holiday
Category: BUSINESS & ECONOMICS
The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller "While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." --from the prologue Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back. Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to history. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by conquering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well. In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, "you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you've set out to achieve."

A SENIOR PASTOR TALKS YOUTH MINISTRY
Author: Tony Myles
Publisher: Group Publishing, Inc.
Ever wish your ministry hindsight could be your foresight? Sometimes you don’t know what’s about to happen next—or how to prepare for it. Other times you can almost glimpse the lessons you’re about to learn the hard way before they happen, like you’re peering through the tiny panels of a fence. You can barely make out what you see, but you know something important lives on the other side. What if someone was on that side of the fence? What if it was a senior pastor who truly understands what you face as a youth worker—and who not only understands, but wants to offer wisdom to help you in your journey? Tony Myles speaks from a unique perspective: a former youth pastor who remains deeply engaged in his church’s ministry to teenagers. He still has skin in the game as a lead pastor, volunteer youth worker, and dad of a youth group kid. He regularly interacts with students and sometimes even gives up preaching on the weekend so he can teach youth. Instead of recycling what’s common, this book reclaims things that are uncommon—thought-provoking questions, risky challenges, and uncomfortable ideas about personal character, church life, and youth ministry. And you’ll process all of this through the life of Nehemiah—with extra insights from youth workers who are on the same path you’re traveling. Uncommon Wisdom From the Other Side will give you the chance to change the typical youth ministry conversation happening at large and in your church—all with the goal of remaining glued to Jesus and reaching a generation of young people.

The Life You've Always Wanted...Based on the Finished Work of Jesus
Author: Mike Massé
Publisher: Charisma Media
Freedom from 'Christian slavery' Radical grace, radical love, radical life Mike Massé loved God and lived to reach the lost. He was admired for his commitment to the gospel and his passion for ministry. But for many years he harbored a private sense of unworthiness and inadequacy, striving to be “good enough”—until a grace conversion liberated him from the chains of expectation and requirement. Only as he came to recognize his true position in Christ did he find the power to love God and others as he desired—from the safe place of total acceptance. Challenging conventional wisdom, traditional thinking, and religious attitudes as he shares his experiences, Massé explains how you can find the same freedom to be who God has always said you are. With honesty, humor, and heart-felt conviction, he celebrates the liberty to be found in the radical truth between legalism and license.

Why People Are Working Harder than Ever but Accomplishing Less, and How to Fix the Problem
Author: Brent D. Peterson,Gaylan W. Nielson
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Category: Business & Economics
How many countless working hours have you spent on projects, proposals, paperwork, and meetings that felt useless or were ignored or dismissed? Hard work is not the same as real work. Half of the work we do consumes valuable time without strengthening the short- or long-term survival of the organization. In a word, it's fake. Not only does fake work drain a company's resources without improving its bottom line, it steals conviction, care, and positive morale from employees, and adds the burden of high turnover, communication breakdowns, and cultural patterns of poor productivity. But how can you turn fake work into real work? Internationally renowned business consultants Brent D. Peterson and Gaylan W. Nielson explain how to identify needlessly time-consuming and sometimes difficult tasks (which aren't always as easy to spot as they seem) and shift your focus toward rewarding work that will achieve results. With more than twenty years of experience, Peterson and Nielson have successfully helped corporations, government agencies, nonprofits, schools, and community groups increase their productivity and retain talented employees by understanding and using their skills on things that actually matter. They illustrate their advice with stories about real world employees who have been trapped by fake work. Fake Work offers solutions that will change the way you view work, including how to recognize fake work and how to get out of it, how (and what) to communicate with your colleagues to eliminate fake work, how to recognize and counteract the personality traits that encourage fake work, and how to close the gap between your company's strategies and the work that needs to be done to reach the results critical to your and your company's survival.
