A BLUEPRINT for SUCCESS is the architectural rendition of what success should look like. It will give you the detail and various views of the concept. It is no secret that achieving goals is a personal and individual pursuit. Your goals are invariably different to those of your neighbor. One important secret in pursuing your goal is in your ability to identify it clearly and distinctly. Accomplishing any goal for success requires us to make changes to the identified product/service/present condition or situation, in order to produce what we are trying to achieve. While difficult to define success succinctly, we have been given many pointers along the way. Successful and well-known people have always given us food for thought. A few examples are: "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." John R. Wooden "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu "What the mind can conceive, it can achieve." Napoleon Hill "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." Milton Berle The Celebrity Experts(R) in this book have dedicated themselves to their goals. Their blueprints include the good, the bad and the ugly. They are not afraid of success or failure. Their experiences will guide and mentor you as you pursue your own goals and begin designing your own SUCCESS BLUEPRINT.

Fierce Leadership

A Bold Alternative to the Worst "Best" Practices of Business Today

From the author of the acclaimed book Fierce Conversations comes the antidote to some of the most wrongheaded practices of business today. · “Provide anonymous feedback.” · “Hire smart people.” · “Hold people accountable.” These are all sound, business practices, right? Not so fast, says leadership visionary and bestselling author Susan Scott. In fact, these mantras — despite being long-accepted and adopted by business leaders everywhere — are completely wrongheaded. Worse, they are costing companies billions of dollars, driving away valuable employees and profitable customers, limiting performance, and stalling careers. Yet they are so deeply ingrained in organizational cultures that no one has questioned them. Until now. In Fierce Leadership, Scott teaches us how to spot the worst “best” practices in our organizations using a technique she calls “squid eye”–the ability to see the “tells” or signs that we have fallen prey to disastrous behaviors by knowing what to look for. Only then, she says, can we apply the antidote.. Informed by over a decade of conversations with Fortune 500 executives, this book is that antidote. With fierce new approaches to everything from employee feedback to corporate diversity to customer relations, Scott offers fresh and surprising alternatives to six of the so-called “best” practices permeating today’s businesses. This refreshingly candid book is a must-read for any manager or leader at any level who is ready to take a long hard look at what trouble might be lurking in their organization - and do something about it.

The Wonder Weeks

How to Stimulate Your Baby's Mental Development and Help Him Turn His 10 Predictable, Great, Fussy Phases Into Magical Leaps Forward

The Wonder Weeks reveals what's going on inside baby's mind. Including a bonus chapter with everything about the relationship between sleep and leaps, as well as unique insight into your baby's sleeping behavior. The book includes: * Week-by-week guide to baby's behavior* When to expect the fussy behavior, what this implies (cranky, clingy, crying (the three C's) behavior) and how to deal with these regression periods (leaps)* A description from your baby's perspective of the world around him and how you can understand the changes he's going through* Fun games and gentle activities you can do with your child* Unique insight into your baby's sleeping behaviour The book is based on the scientific- and parental-world-changing discovery of a phenomenon: all normal, healthy babies appear to be more fussy at very nearly the same ages, regression periods, and sleep less in these phases. These age-related fluctuations in need for body contact and attention (regression periods) are related to major and quite dramatic changes in the brains of the children. These changes enable a baby to enter a whole new perceptual world and, as a consequence, to learn many new skills. This should be a reason for celebration, but as far as the baby is concerned these changes are bewildering. He's taken aback--everything has changed overnight. It is as if he has woken up on a strange planet. He needs you to guide him and understand what he is going through! Get ready to rediscover the world all over again with your baby... Bonus: Sleep, and the lack of sleep... that's something we all have to deal with when we have a baby. The bonus chapter includes everything about the relationship between sleep and leaps, as well as unique insight into your baby's sleeping behavior. Hint: did you know your baby learns (and there's a lot of brain activity) during those little, 'light' sleeps?
