Description
"How do both elite athletes and business leaders climb to the top? Contrary to what you might think, it's effective habits rather than innate talent that are their keys to success. Dr. Jason Selk-director of mental training for the 2011 World Series Champions, the St. Louis Cardinals-and star business coach Tom Bartow combine the most effective elements of both their disciplines to offer an organizational improvement plan that anyone can learn and apply immediately. They outline eight fundamental ways to get organized, including the "time paradox," which allows precision to set your schedule free, and a two-minute mental training drill that will start your day with focus, confidence, and energy. Organize Tomorrow Today helps readers to move past their performance roadblocks and achieve more productive lives."--,Provided by publisher.
Description
"How do elite athletes and star business leaders alike achieve their peak performance? Effective habits, rather than innate talent, are the keys to success in work and in life. Now, prominent sports psychologist Dr. Jason Selk and star business coach Tom Bartow combine the most effective elements of both their disciplines to offer an organizational improvement plan that anyone can learn and apply right away. They've seen what works and what doesn't, and their Organize Tomorrow Today program condenses those success patterns into a streamlined set of core habit-building principles anyone can use. OTT is made up of eight simple, concrete, easy-to-understand rules: 1) Organize Tomorrow, Today; 2) The Multitasking Myth; 3) Creating Time; 4) Building (and Breaking) Habits; 5) Beating the Excuse Mindset; 6) Finding Your Fuel; 7) The Art (and Science) of Evaluation; 8) The Two-Minute Mental Toughness Drill. These rules work together as a performance improvement plan for both work and life--but you don't even have to master them all to get a benefit. The key to high level success is to pick one thing to change and master it. Then, over time, you can build on it, one step at a time. The rules are simple and straightforward, but this isn't some kind of "get-rich-quick" plan. You'll have to put in the work and change some habits to see improvement. It isn't any different than building your body in the gym, or improving a sports skill through practice. In Organize Tomorrow Today, you're getting your success pattern blueprint--a complete plan that builds on the little victories and establishes the long-term productive habits that will let you take control of your time and your life"--,Provided by publisher.
