Making Ideas Happen

Scott Belsky

Edison famously said that genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration. Ideas for new businesses, solutions to the world's problems, and artistic breakthroughs are common, but great execution is rare.

According to Scott Belsky, the capacity to make ideas happen can be developed by anyone willing to develop their organizational habits and leadership capability. That's why he founded Behance, a company that helps creative people and teams across industries develop these skills.

Integral Life Practice

Ken Wilber, Terry Patten, Adam Leonard, Marco Morelli

Обычная перекрёстная тренировка — плоская. Вы немного занимаетесь аэробикой, немного — поднятием тяжестей, и ещё, возможно, йогой, но все это лишь на физическом уровне. Что если мы применим принцип перекрётсной тренировки — а именно, что достижения в одной области ускоряют достижения в других — ко всем уровням и измерениям нашей жизни? Вот в чём здесь смысл. Предварительные исследования свидетельствуют, что, к примеру, медитирующий, занимающийся одновременно поднятием тяжестей, достигает боль…

In an informal, discursive style, he presents an arsenal of techniques for cultivating ideas and harvesting the usable onesto avoid mixed metapho…

Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It

Cali Ressler

Do you hate cramming all of your errands into the weekend?

Do you resent having to beg permission to watch your kid’s weekday soccer game?

Are you tired of seeing people who aren’t very good at their jobs get promoted because they arrive early and stay late?

There’s got to be a better way—and there is! Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson show that everyone benefits when we change the focus from hours to outcomes. It’s just that our traditional definition of work—Monday through Friday, nin…

The 4-Hour Workweek

Timothy Ferriss

What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer: "I race motorcycles in Europe." "I ski in the Andes." "I scuba dive in Panama." "I dance tango in Buenos Aires."

He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the "deferred-life plan" and instead mastered the new currencies-time and mobility-to create luxury li…
