Whether you want to eat more healthfully, stop checking devices, or finish a project, the invaluable ideas in Better Than Before will start you working on your own habits—even before you’ve finished the book.
Author: Gretchen Rubin
Publisher: Broadway Books
New York Times Bestseller | Washington Post Bestseller The author of the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home, tackles the critical question: How do we change? Gretchen Rubin's answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives. So if habits are a key to change, then what we really need to know is: How do we change our habits? Better than Before answers that question. It presents a practical, concrete framework to allow readers to understand their habits—and to change them for good. Infused with Rubin’s compelling voice, rigorous research, and easy humor, and packed with vivid stories of lives transformed, Better than Before explains the (sometimes counter-intuitive) core principles of habit formation. Along the way, Rubin uses herself as guinea pig, tests her theories on family and friends, and answers readers’ most pressing questions—oddly, questions that other writers and researchers tend to ignore: • Why do I find it tough to create a habit for something I love to do? • Sometimes I can change a habit overnight, and sometimes I can’t change a habit, no matter how hard I try. Why? • How quickly can I change a habit? • What can I do to make sure I stick to a new habit? • How can I help someone else change a habit? • Why can I keep habits that benefit others, but can’t make habits that are just for me? Whether readers want to get more sleep, stop checking their devices, maintain a healthy weight, or finish an important project, habits make change possible. Reading just a few chapters of Better Than Before will make readers eager to start work on their own habits—even before they’ve finished the book.

“Kathryn Shay knows how to pack an emotional wallop.” Booklist In her never before published trilogy RIGHT MATCH.COM, Kathryn Shay tackles some of her trademark emotional issues: the dangers of online dating, deception, divorce, disabilities, domestic violence and raising children, all framed by three brothers who finally find their soul mates! Based on the premise, “Everybody lies on these sites,” the stories show how a lie told between each couple can have devastating effects! In BETTER THAN BEFORE, charismatic and super rich venture capitalist Spence Wickham makes a bet with his brother to join an online dating service and prove people lie on these sites. But his deceit trips him up with sweet and generous Annie Hopkins who’s looking for the type of man he’s pretending to be. When the truth comes out, Spence must find a way to make Annie love him for the man he is. “Another winner by Kathryn Shay! The online dating stuff is fascinating! I loved all the characters - flaws and all. Shay has a way to develop such real characters, lets them screw up, realize their mistakes and emerge as even better people. Reading this book I ran the emotional gamut - was mad as hell at what characters did, moved to tears in some scenes, laughed out loud and cheered. The love scenes gave me a case of the vapors. I can't wait for the next one in the series!” A reader Praise for Kathryn Shay’s contemporary romances: “A wonderful work of contemporary romance, with a plot ripped straight from the headlines. Kathryn Shay never disappoints.” NY Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner. “Shay writes an emotion-packed story. With angst and some hot sex, this dramatic tale also has a nice touch of humor.” RT Book Reviews

Abstract : Organizations often pay greater salaries to higher‐ranking executives compared to lower‐ranking executives.
Abstract : Organizations often pay greater salaries to higher‐ranking executives compared to lower‐ranking executives. While this method can be useful for retaining those at the organization's apex, it may also incline executives at the bottom of the pay pyramid to see themselves at a disadvantage and thus exit the firm. Naturally, organizations often want to retain some of their lower‐paid, but highly valuable executives; the question, then, is how organizations can reduce the turnover of lower‐ranking executives. By integrating social with temporal comparison theory, we argue that, when executives earn relatively less than their peers, more pay growth (i.e., individual pay increases over time) leads to less turnover. The results of our analysis, which covered almost 20 years of objective data on a large sample of U.S. top executives, provide support for our theory.

Most women feel that they are not whole unless they have a man, so they will settle for almost anything that comes along. They feel desperate, especially if they are not married by age of thirty. I hear the young ladies at the beauty salon talking when I go to get my hair fixed, complaining about how they can't find a good man.

Given the imperfections of our society and the apparent downward spiral of spiritual and moral values seen in recent years; loving, caring and respecting someone has almost become a thing of the past. Indeed, these once natural emotions and reactions to one another seem to have diminished so rapidly that even finding true, loyal friends, acquaintances and family members who support and encourage you and who partake in your successes can be difficult. Perhaps I am too critical when I say this but maybe it’s because it is this context in which I consider the following true story of a man who felt significant pain, and reflects the context in which I have endured my own pain over time. This book has been difficult for me to write. There are sections where I will be explaining certain things to you, the reader, about my very own thoughts and feelings regarding the hurtful insinuations and malicious gossip certain people have spread around about me to try and discredit me and bring about my downfall. You will find that I haven’t mentioned any ‘real’ names or named places of where events have taken place. Instead I have gathered together information on the situations I have endured, and of those that apply to the story provided here – that of a man who felt immense pain, How deeply we who love the Lord God desire to follow him and draw strength from him in order to gain power to surmount all the difficulties and test and conflicts in life in the same exultant and triumphant way that he had previously displayed. To learn the secret of ‘victorious living’ has been the heart’s desire of those who love the Lord God, in every generation. We who follow God all strive to help victims find hope and victory here on this earth and during this life. We hope that through our input, they will be able to always react to evil, tribulation, sorrow, pain and every negative situation that they experience in such a way that allows them to transform their emotions into something positive and that they too seek to praise God forever.

Is it possible, through use of existing psychiatric medications or talk therapy, to treat someone who has become slightly to severely mentally ill, and not only eliminate symptoms of his illness but also leave him “better than well”? This is a question with which eminent American psychiatrist, Peter Kramer, grappled in his landmark 1993 book, Listening to Prozac. Kramer concluded, based largely on responses of his own patients to the then relatively new antidepressant Prozac, that “better than well” may indeed be attainable in some persons. Not surprisingly, this is a controversial conclusion that has been met with a large degree of skepticism, including in a number of books that have since appeared. The current book explores this issue in detail, including analysis of cutting edge neuroscience and psychiatric research, concluding that "better than well" may indeed be attainable in some individuals. If so, this phenomenon may have broad reaching implications for medicine and society in general.

This book focuses upon more than our personal spiritual journey. We have developed what we believe to be a more authentic view of this experience called life on earth. The fact that spirits came into our home, however briefly, changed our lives and altered our perceptions forever. We try to explain this experience from our own unique perspective. Certain concepts, while not new, receive a fresh analysis. All of our personal realizations revealed here, are new and independent ideas presented to the world for the first time. I have tried to do more than simply sketch the outline of a perceptual model. I have tried to apply the far reaching consequences that result from our realizations to a world of human experience.

The beloved #1 Essence bestselling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards. Jewel is Hollywood royalty: as the teenage star of the TV show "Daddy's Girl," her face is instantly recognizable all across America. Now, though, she wants two things-to get a serious education, and to leave her controlling stage mother behind. Regina is the definitive upper-middle-class African-American girl. Her picture-perfect parents are what she calls "black Ward and June Cleavers" and their goals for her are like a stranglehold. No one can see, though, how far Regina's rebellious side will take her (or how treacherous it will become). Carmen is just trying to get by. A child of the projects whose father is dead and whose mother has vanished, Carmen has been raised by her abusive brother. Columbia is the way for her to get a better life-if she can hold down two jobs and keep her GPA up. When the three of them meet, their lives are at a crossroad. And as the years progress, from the 1980s to the present day, they are challenged by drug addiction, fame, secrets from the past, sickness, betrayal, and the darkest things women can face. One of them won't survive. But what will be the lasting legacy of their friendship? Better Than I Know Myself is a novel of heartache, triumph, tears, and the unshakeable bonds among women.
