'In a world beset by burnout, Greg McKeown's work is essential' -- Daniel H. Pink 'Effortless shows that achieving more doesn't have to be as hard as we make it out to be' -- Arianna Huffington FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ESSENTIALISM COMES A GUIDE TO MAKING THE MOST IMPORTANT TASKS EFFORTLESS The intricacy of modern life has created a false dichotomy between things that are 'hard and important,' and those that are 'easy and trivial.' Everything has become so much harder than it ought to be. But, Greg McKeown, bestselling author of Essentialism, says, there is a third alternative. In Effortless, he offers practical strategies for making the most vital tasks the easiest ones. Honed over the better part of a decade, these strategies include: · Asking 'What Step Can I Remove?' (accomplish more, in fewer steps) · Having the Courage to Be Rubbish (prioritize progress over perfection) · Deciding What 'Done' Looks Like (don't keep running after you pass the finish line) McKeown's philosophy of essentialism has helped thousands to eliminate nonessential activities and focus on the few that really matter. Working out what is essential is the first step - making these tasks effortless is the next. Effortless will show you how.

After over 15 years of training as an elite gymnast and over a decade of coaching, Coach Carl Paoli offers a fresh philosophy on training by connecting movement styles to fit your specific purpose, while also giving you a simple framework for mastering the basics of any human movement. Freestyle: Maximize Your Sport and Life Performance with Four Basic Movements is an interactive way to learn how the body is designed to move through space and how to interact with our constantly changing surroundings. Using this framework and four basic movements, Paoli will help you maximize your efforts in sport and life, regardless of specialty. Despite Carl's experience as an elite gymnast and a renowned CrossFit coach, this is not a book about gymnastics, CrossFit, or any specific fitness program. Rather, it is a unique take on how Carl studies and teaches human movement and how you can better understand how to move yourself. Carl is not going to teach you the specifics of a movement or sport; instead, he gives you a template that you can use to develop any specific movement. For example, instead of teaching you how to throw a baseball, this book teaches you a universal foundation that will help you further develop your pitching skills. Human movement is intuitive, but not always perfect. This book shows you how to: * Turn on and trust your intuition about movement * Use tools that help optimize imperfect movement * Tap into the universal movement patterns and progressions underlying all disciplines * Use Carl Paoli's movement framework to create roadmaps for your physical success * Learn what being strong really means Freestyle is a practical manual to develop human movement regardless of your discipline. It is equally applicable to veteran athletes, weekend warriors, fitness enthusiasts, people trying to pick up a new sport, and people who are simply curious about improving their health. By developing your awareness and learning to see across other disciplines, you can tailor any training regimen to meet your unique goals.

Watkins provides readers with practical and proven tools she designed along with health and wellness experts to get on the path to a healthy lifestyle in a 24-7 world. Prompted by Watkins’s own experiences while working inside the world of two presidential campaigns and other high-performing, stressful working environments, she shares her own stories as well as stories from prominent men and women across a wide range of industries on their experiences and how they came out the other side. Bestselling author and TV host Bill Nye “the Science Guy,” 2016 CrossFit Games competitor and RN Christy Adkins, professional speaker and Army veteran Dan Nevins, restaurateur Jamie Leeds, two-star Michelin-rated chef José Andrés, and former White House staffer Phil Larson are some of the many voices featured. Go From Stressed to Strong is for everyone with a busy lifestyle who thinks they can’t fit in being healthy—whether a CEO, a full-time student, a CPA during tax season, or a full-time parent. Watkins reveals how to handle specific challenges to health—sleep deprivation, poor diet, and stress.

This is a memoir by two-time CrossFit Games champion, Katrin Davidsdottir. Dottir is two-time consecutive CrossFit Games Champion Katrin Davidsdottir's inspiring and poignant memoir. As one of only three women in history to have won the title of “Fittest Woman on Earth” twice, Davidsdottir knows all about the importance of mental and physical strength. She won the title in 2015, backing it up with a second win in 2016, after starting CrossFit in just 2011. A gymnast as a youth, Davidsdottir wanted to try new challenges and found a love of CrossFit. But it hasn't been a smooth rise to the top. In 2014, just one year before taking home the gold, she didn't qualify for the Games. She used that loss as motivation and fuel for training harder and smarter for the 2015 Games. She pushed herself and refocused her mental game. Her hard work and perseverance paid off with her return to the Games and subsequent victories in 2015 and 2016. In Dottir, Davidsdottir shares her journey with readers. She details her focus on training, goal setting, nutrition, and mental toughness.

The Forest Dames

Naturally talented Ada Okere Agbasimalo remains richly endowed with that incredibly fertile imagination that drives her passion to connect with her immediate environment, and weave interestingly curious scenes, into big stories. Her deep knowledge of the themes of her works, pairs up with her rare gift in creative writing, to keep her readers spellbound; as she crafts suspense upon suspense, with such masterly control that you CANNOT put down her books. In this third book of hers, where she narrates her true life experience as a teenage girl caught up in the cross fire of war, she practically brings you, quite in subdued trepidation, face to face with the situation of reality. The author holds a doctorate degree in International Relations and had been an employee, in Nigeria, of the Johns Hopkins University/Center for Communication Programs (JHU/CCP) and COMPASS; both USAID sponsored. She also had a stint with Society for Family Health (SFH). Married with four children and two grandchildren, she is widely travelled and widely read. She is also the author of "Bow You Must" and Waves of Destiny. "The Forest Dames is a pulsating story about the devastating effects of war, in which Ada Okere Agbasimalo dwells on the sordid consequences of civil war on humanity, and the tortuous effort to achieve normalcy. It features Deze, a young girl with a keen mind, who lived with her parents in a typical African setting, and felt the pain of war. As an adult, the memories remain intact, kind of haunting her. The Forest Dames is a strident voice detailing and condemning potential malignant actions that continue to impede the development of African nations and indeed, parts of the developing world. These include wars, culture-based biases, illogical and deadly tribal hatred, wanton destruction of life and property, etc. African and world leaders, politicians, historians, students and the general public should be awakened by this book. It is a must read." Samuel Ozurumba Ejiogu Esq. The Forest Dames is: Designed to get war agitators to have a rethink. A vivid and authentic literature for post war citizens anywhere in the world, and anybody for that matter. A celebration of femininity. A motivation on how to move on. A potpourri of cruelty, resilience, ingenuity, industry, commitment, hopes and aspirations. A potent material for 'War and Gender' scholars. "The girls watched the women melt into the thick forest, through the same emergency pathway that had led them in. This time, there was no sound of water; there were no whispers, only footsteps on the path."
