Download and read online The Leap in PDF and EPUB Have you ever asked yourself, "Is this it?" Maybe you're trapped in a dead-end job that you're afraid to leave. Or maybe you already have a good job-one that gives you room to grow and exercise your talents-but you don't really feel like you're doing your best work. Your life is plain vanilla, yet you know in your heart that you can be a triple scoop banana split. You just don't know how to make that leap. So what do you do? Rick Smith knows firsthand what it's like to feel stuck in a career rut. He worked in a midlevel job where he had modest success. Then his life took an unexpected turn and he found himself creating a business that became successful beyond his wildest dreams. He unlocked a level of performance he did not know he had in him. After all, Smith was just a regular guy who didn't like to take chances or even step outside his comfort zone. But as he found out, those qualities don't have to be stumbling blocks. In fact, they're two of the keys to making the leap from good to great. And after talking to others who had also transformed their careers from mundane to magnificent, he realized that the secret doesn't lie with some mysterious talent, trait, or affinity for risk. And it certainly doesn't require you to quit your job and start from scratch. Rather, it lies with your ability to harness your true strengths and passions-what Smith calls your Primary Color. You'll meet remarkable people who've made the leap, such as: A soft-spoken middle manager who transformed her company, her industry, and her career with a simple-yet groundbreaking-idea. A door-to-door fax machine saleswoman who became a global fashion mogul after developing her own line of women's apparel. A Florida shrimp farmer who became a globally recognized genetics expert after both of his sons were diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. A software designer who became a leading advocate for the homeless after volunteering part time at a local shelter and realizing his true calling. Through powerful anecdotes, lessons from brain science, and tools for self-assessment, Smith shows how, with the right amount of passion, determination, and three simple steps, anyone can make the leap to a more successful and fulfilling life.

Download and read online Giants Leap in PDF and EPUB A violent childhood of poverty, Catholic Church hypocrisy and alienating experiences in institutions, low paid jobs and family tragedies catapulted me towards left wing political causes and a quest for social justice, placing me squarely in the middle of the social movements of the sixties and seventies. My experiences, which centered on trade union and Communist Party activism in the industrial city of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley region, are the topic of this memoir. I was born in 1942. As a young boy I recall looking out from the cliff called Giants Leap, overlooking our shack in Sandy Hollow and day-dreaming of escape to another world. Like that mythical giant, I leapt into the world with unfettered enthusiasm and in this book I record my various measures of success. My story-telling ability is partly inherited, as I have a strong dose of Irish in my blood, and partly acquired. In my lifetime I often found it necessary to spin a yarn to get me out of a sticky situation or else to occupy myself through hours of boredom when incarcerated in institutions. At Mt Penang Training School for Boys, we boys would sit around and ‘tell a movie’ as a form of entertainment. I have tried to relate the stories in this book with a humorous tone, highlighting the many ironies and hypocrisies that I see have punctuated my life. I have endeavoured to show the worldly development of a boy who suffers violence and family break-up, a juvenile who joins gangs and steals cars, a self-educated young man who eventually becomes the secretary of a large trade union organisation, who joins the Communist Party, is gaoled for inciting opposition to the Vietnam War, who as a mature adult, travels the world and works at dozens of different manual jobs, finally becoming an environmental educator. This is my intellectual journey; through blind rebellion to the embracing of left wing ideology, to the eventual rejection of rigid dogma and the growing philosophy centred on human compassion and environmental concern. My story is punctuated with twenty two songs and poems I have written along the way as well as sprinklings from my ASIO files which almost play the role of Greek chorus behind the narrative. The accelerating destruction of the Hunter Valley by coal mining giants remains my primary contemporary concern in this first serious foray into prose. While my life’s experiences have been particular, if somewhat unusual, I feel the message of the book is universal. With opportunity and education and a compassionate disposition, the world could be a better place.
Download and read online The Leap to Globalization in PDF and EPUB Whereas previous research concentrated on articulating what global strategies look like in large multinational companies with decades of experience in operations abroad, The Leap to Globalization focuses on how globalizing is realized over time in companies that start from a narrow geographic base. Three characteristics differentiate globalizing as observed in current practice from simple international expansion. First, globalization implies a redefinition of customer value; second, globalizing is an entrepreneurial process that transforms the company; and third, speed plays an essential role in globalization.
Download and read online A Leap in the Dark in PDF and EPUB It was an age of fascinating leaders and difficult choices, of grand ideas eloquently expressed and of epic conflicts bitterly fought. Now comes a brilliant portrait of the American Revolution, one that is compelling in its prose, fascinating in its details, and provocative in its fresh interpretations. In A Leap in the Dark, John Ferling offers a magisterial new history that surges from the first rumblings of colonial protest to the volcanic election of 1800. Ferling's swift-moving narrative teems with fascinating details. We see Benjamin Franklin trying to decide if his loyalty was to Great Britain or to America, and we meet George Washington when he was a shrewd planter-businessman who discovered personal economic advantages to American independence. We encounter those who supported the war against Great Britain in 1776, but opposed independence because it was a "leap in the dark." Following the war, we hear talk in the North of secession from the United States. The author offers a gripping account of the most dramatic events of our history, showing just how closely fought were the struggle for independence, the adoption of the Constitution, and the later battle between Federalists and Democratic-Republicans. Yet, without slowing the flow of events, he has also produced a landmark study of leadership and ideas. Here is all the erratic brilliance of Hamilton and Jefferson battling to shape the new nation, and here too is the passion and political shrewdness of revolutionaries, such as Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, and their Loyalist counterparts, Joseph Galloway and Thomas Hutchinson. Here as well are activists who are not so well known today, men like Abraham Yates, who battled for democratic change, and Theodore Sedgwick, who fought to preserve the political and social system of the colonial past. Ferling shows that throughout this period the epic political battles often resembled today's politics and the politicians--the founders--played a political hardball attendant with enmities, selfish motivations, and bitterness. The political stakes, this book demonstrates, were extraordinary: first to secure independence, then to determine the meaning of the American Revolution. John Ferling has shown himself to be an insightful historian of our Revolution, and an unusually skillful writer. A Leap in the Dark is his masterpiece, work that provokes, enlightens, and entertains in full measure.

Download and read online A Leap Into the Future in PDF and EPUB A Leap into the Future is a collection of speeches, essays and articles compiled during Prof. Anyang' Nyong'o's tenure in the Kenya government and soon afterwards (2002-2006). In this provocative collection, Prof. Nyong'o examines the challenges of development, analyses how pan-African and global partnerships could facilitate development, and invokes the visionary direction pointed out by prominent personalities in Kenya's political leadership to whom he pays tribute. Through the collection, the author projects his vision for socio-political and economic transformation of the Kenyan society in a bid to formulate an economic strategy capable of leap-frogging the country from the current quagmire of underdevelopment to development. Professor Anyang' Nyong'o is a renowned reformist and political scientist in Africa and is best known for his role in Kenya's "second liberation." He holds a doctorate degree in Political Science from the University of Chicago and has taught in universities in Kenya, Mexico and Ethiopia. Upon the re-introduction of multiparty politics in Kenya in 1991, he was involved in the founding of Forum for the Restoration of Democracy (FORD), which provided the premier opposition machinery in the run-up to the 1992 general elections. He was also involved in the formation of the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC), which defeated KANU, the party that had ruled Kenya for 24 years. In the subsequent NARC government, he became the Minister of Planning and National Development. Besides teaching, he is widely published in Africa and abroad. Prof. Nyong'o has also been at the frontline in championing the reform agenda in Africa, especially through the establishment of NEPAD. At the time of publication of this book, he was Secretary General of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
