People-Centered Leadership (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Too often, leaders see a 'gap' as a problem or something to avoid. In his work with leaders and organizations at growth-transition points, Scott Patchin has become convinced that the basic challenge of leadership comes down to creating and managing the gaps - those spaces between where you are now and where you want to be.

In this insightful whitepaper, Patchin outlines the three key gaps that every leader must master for effective leadership and the steps you can take to fill those gaps. He then looks at the four habits you should develop and commit to in order to successfully manage each individual performance gap.

Also included:
- Three hidden threats to effectively managing the gap
- How to take ownership of your gaps
- Steps to create an action plan
- Self-assessment

7 Minute Change (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

WARNING: Your Life Needs To Change...

Whether you know it or not, your life is subpar.

I don't say that to point fingers or anything.

But it's true.

Your life is not nearly as great and happy as it could be. As it should be.

Don't believe me?

How many days do you come home from work, completely beat and feeling like crap?

How many days are you too tired to play with your kids and create memories that are actually worth something?

How often do you feel like you're just wasting your time, and not accomplishing anything worthwhile?

If you're like most people the answer to all of those questions is: too often.

But I'm Here To Help You Make The Changes You Need!

You see, I used to be exactly where you are now.

Each day seemed like a dreary, worthless...nightmare.

I was never happy, didn't exercise anymore, barely got anything done, and was a complete wreck.

But then one day everything changed...

See, one day I discovered something that completely changed everything, and allowed me to do things I had never thought possible before.

With one simple technique I was able to:

  • Double and sometimes TRIPLE productivity.

  • Relieve the mountain of stress on my shoulders.

  • Pack on some much needed muscle.

  • Feel great 24/7.

  • Sharpen my talents. (And learn new ones.)

  • And much, MUCH more.

And the best part?


How is this possible, you ask?


The 7 Minute Superhuman Method

If your life is lacking, (which, to be blunt, it undoubtedly is) then the 7 Minute Superhuman technique could be the ONE thing you're looking for to turn your world right side up.

The 7 Minute method incorporates the use of snazzy little 7 minute routines that help motivate you, prepare you, inspire you, and destine you for success!

That may seem over-simplistic -- but that's the point!

Most self-help books and courses teach you how to use long elaborate techniques and programs to supposedly change your life.

The problem?

They're too complex, so you get bummed out and quit.

And never make any lasting improvements in your life.

7 Minute Superhuman will change that.

While simple enough that a child could use them, the techniques in this book will change your life dramatically and help you break out of the "dreardom" that is your current lifestyle.

If you want to break away from unhappiness and become FREE -- NOW is your chance!

This book contains the simple and easy to implement techniques and methods that you need to change your life.

All you have to do is buy the book, read through it one time, apply what you learn, and then reap the rewards for years to come.

Mental Models: 30 Tools To Master Logic And Productivity
Have you ever wondered what separates the most successful people from the rest of us? Is it superior genetics, or better education? Not at all! The real reason some people are able to reach top levels of performance is their reliance on mental models. They have learned and integrated systematic thinking into their own mental toolbox. They can leverage these models to produce better than average results.

A mental model is just a simplified way of looking at a more complex problem. It allows you to more easily understand and reach an accurate conclusion. You may not be aware, but you use models every day. A map is an example of a model that most people understand. When you leave your house to go to work you don’t need to constantly consult written directions, you have internalized the map. You have a mental model of how to get to work. This saves you time and simplifies your life. Now imagine being able to internalize mental models for different and more complex types of problems.

Author, Kevin Wagonfoot, covers 30 mental models that you can use to improve any facet of your life. The book is broken down into eight chapters, each containing several relevant models. Chapters include:

  • Decision Making

  • Dealing With Others

  • Understanding

  • Creativity

  • Reasoning

  • Negotiating

  • Learning

  • Working

While there are literally thousands of different mental models out there, this book serves as a guide to understanding some of the most basic and broadly applied models. If you have ever wanted to streamline your thought process, increase your mental horsepower, or just simplify your life buy this book today.
