* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. By reading this summary, you will discover how to create a serene and healthy work atmosphere. You will also discover : that by eliminating distractions, you can do more than enough work in less than 40 hours a week; that meetings are useless: rather than reacting immediately to a given piece of information, write it down and study it; that it is perfectly acceptable to do nothing, because being efficient means being able to have free time, not working all the time; that a business is not a family: your work should never become more important than your family and your private life; that talent should not be plundered, but nurtured and cultivated: focus on the work your employees do rather than their degrees; that the best way to get more work done is by having less to do: you need to know how to say no in order to get some time back. How many times have you ever heard someone say, "It's crazy at work"? Maybe you've even said it yourself. But why all the craziness? Today, being overworked and exhausted have become symbols of success for many people. People work more, but accomplish less and less because they lose a lot of time in trivialities. Hours are wasted in meetings and distractions, in inefficient work practices. Chaos should not be the hallmark of the workspace and anxiety is not a prerequisite for progress. Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the leaders of Basecamp, an application for organizing projects and internal communications. They have created a healthy and sustainable company, and hope to be an inspiration for change. To date, running a company with serenity is unfortunately not the custom. Put toxic standards aside and finally recognize that when it's crazy at work, there's a problem! *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!

Too many of us feel trapped in stagnant romantic, family, or workplace relationships. Weighed down by toxic thoughts and emotions, we might be quick to judge and slow to pardon, and self-righteous about our feelings as we dwell on memories of what we or others did (or failed to do). In this new book, Iyanla Vanzant challenges us to liberate ourselves from the wounds of the past and to embrace the new power of forgiveness. With Iyanla’s 21-Day Forgiveness Plan, you’ll explore relationship dynamics with your parents, children, friends, partners, co-workers, bosses, yourself, and even God. With journaling work and Emotional Freedom Techniques (also known as "tapping"), you’ll learn to live with more love; gain new clarity on your life, lessons, and blessings; and discover a new level of personal freedom, peace, and well-being. Forgiveness doesn’t mean agreeing with, condoning, or even liking what has happened. Forgiveness means letting go and knowing that—regardless of how challenging, frightening, or difficult an experience may seem—everything is just as it needs to be in order for you to grow and learn. When you focus on how things "should" be, you deny the presence and power of love. Accept the events of the past, while being willing to change your perspective on them. As Iyanla says, "Only forgiveness can liberate minds and hearts once held captive by anger, bitterness, resentment, and fear. Forgiveness is a true path to freedom that can renew faith, build trust, and nourish the soul."

Don’t miss the chance to read the novels that launched New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala’s career. WHOSE SIDE WAS SHE REALLY RUNNING TO? Debbie Randall told herself her trip from California to Oklahoma was an errand of mercy. Her best friend’s father had broken his leg in a car crash, and she had offered to help him out while he recovered. But, deep down inside, she knew that something else—or, rather, someone else—was behind her offer. While she was helping Morgan Brownfield recuperate, she would have a chance to spend time with his son, Cole. Since the day she’d met him last summer, she hadn’t been able to forget the tall, quiet cop with the solemn eyes. She’d fallen for him, and she wasn’t about to let love slip through her fingers just because he lived halfway across the country. Cole was wary from the minute Debbie arrived. He’d faced stakeouts and drug busts without fear, but this woman had single-handedly sent him running for cover. He’d chosen to lead a solitary life for a reason, and there was no way on earth he was going to let her weaken his resolve. The problem was, his heart had other ideas.

Dive into the Omegaverse Mates World! This collection includes all three serials taking place in the emotional but also magical world of Omegaverse Mates, where men can get pregnant and families aren’t always bound to you by blood, but instead made up of people you love and who love you! Dive into this more than 450,000 words or almost 1,800 pages long saga today! Second Chance Mates Wilder Ten years ago, Logan left me. He told me that two Alphas cannot be together, that our mating wasn’t real. Yesterday, my sister called and told me that Logan passed away, leaving behind an Omega and a child. Today, I’m at Logan’s funeral. Why am I offering to look after his little family? Why am I the only one who will help them? Sterling Logan and I had everything we ever wanted. Then he was ripped away from us in a car crash. Logan’s family doesn’t care for me after the funeral, so one of Logan’s old friends steps in. Only, in all the commotion, I didn’t keep an eye on my calendar, and my heat starts at the most inconvenient of times. And why is Logan’s friend reacting to my heat? Only true mates are supposed to react to a mated Omega... What’s going on? Making a Family When your idea of asking a cute Omega to be your pretend-husband for a weekend takes an unexpected turn… Clay I have my pride as an Alpha, and I don’t want to be the only unmated sibling at my youngest sister’s wedding. What’s a successful, but bachelor, Alpha to do? Well, maybe ask the cute Omega frequenting my cafe to be my fake husband for the weekend. Only, I didn’t expect a weekend of fun to go so very differently… Aiden The day after my sister leaves her three-month-old to look after, to be the parent she can’t be, I get an odd request from the handsome Alpha running the cafe I frequent. And who can resist a request from the only man able to make me smile this week? So, I show up, play the role of adoring husband, and that’s when things go a little off-script… Omegas’ Destined Alpha Two Omegas. One kiss. And an Alpha who wasn’t supposed to see it happen… Nathan I’m supposed to be an author, but I haven’t finished a book in years. Not since things got out of control. So, to hopefully get back on my feet, I move to a new city, start teaching at college and suddenly find myself intrigued by two Omegas that pass me by every morning. One day, on a whim, I follow them and see something I shouldn’t have seen. A kiss. A beautiful kiss. And it’s the start of a journey I never expected to make… Zeke I fled from the arranged marriage my parents set up for me and I was ready to give up on love entirely, and then my best friend saved his younger Omega brother, Wes, from a bad situation and suddenly I was falling, head over heels. It’s amazing to be at Wes’ side and to see him flourish, even if our relationship is a little complicated, we’re making it work. Maybe love isn’t so bad after all. What I hadn’t counted on was the Alpha walking into the cafe, and the way my eyes keep getting drawn to him... Wes After my brother saved me from my abusive ex, I’m getting my feet back under me. I’m finally doing the things I was never able to do, like having a job and going to college. It’s not easy to combine it with caring for my four children. But with my Omega boyfriend Zeke and my brother’s family at my side, we make it work, they’re all the people I’ll ever need. Until, one morning, an Alpha walks into the cafe that I work at, and he asks Zeke and me out on a date, together...

After years of working on a string of sitcoms, Phil Doran found himself on the outside looking in. Just as he and his peers had replaced the older guys when he was coming up the ranks, it was now happening to him. And it was freaking him out. He came home every night angry, burned- out, and exhausted. After twenty-five years of losing her husband to Hollywood, Doran’s wife decided it was finally time for a change—so on one of her many solo trips to Italy she surprised her husband by purchasing a broken-down 300-year-old farmhouse for them to restore. The Reluctant Tuscan is about the author’s transition from being a successful but overworked writer-producer in Hollywood to rediscovering himself and his wife while in Italy, and finding happiness in the last place he expected. In the witty tone that made him a success as a writer in Hollywood, The Reluctant Tuscan captivates those who simply love a good travel narrative as well as anyone who loves the quirky humor of Bill Bryson, Dave Barry, and Jerry Seinfeld.
