How to Gain Control of Your Free Time

How to Gain Control of Your Free Time by Laura Vandercam demonstrates how people can stretch their time to accommodate what they choose to put into it. For instance, if people were asked whether they could find seven hours in a week to mentor seven worthy people, most would say no. However, if those same people came home and discovered their water heater had broken and filled their basement with water, they would find seven hours to fix the problem. The key to time management is treating priorities as the equivalent of the broken water heater. Every minute you spend doing something is your choice. Rather than saying you do not have time for something, be more accurate and say it is not a priority.

How Great Leaders Inspire Action

How Great Leaders Inspire Action by Simon Sinek explains how all of the great leaders and organizations worldwide act and communicate in the same way. Inspiring leaders know exactly why they do what they do. They have a clearly defined purpose, cause, or belief. Powerful leaders know why their organization exists, why they get out of bed in the morning, and why others should care. As a result, the way they think, act, and communicate is from the inside out. For instance, rather than Apple saying “We make great computers,” the company says, “We believe in challenging the status quo in everything we do. We think differently and create beautifully designed, easy to use computers.” Because Apple knows that people are more interested in why companies do something rather than what they do, the company is a leader in selling electronic devices.

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals by Stephen Duneier shows how making small adjustments in your daily routine will help you achieve ambitious dreams. Because of the continuing and compounding nature of the millions of decisions you make on a regular basis, even a small improvement in your process can hugely impact your results. For instance, in 2001, Duneier decided that he would learn to speak fluent German during his 45-minute walk each way to work. He bought an entire set of CDs in a German language program and put them on his iPod. In 10 months, Duneier listened to all 99 CDs three times each. He then went to Berlin for a 16-day intensive German course. When he finished, Duneier walked around and engaged in conversations with the Germans. They understood him well.
