DO! the pursuit of xceptional execution

DO! the pursuit of xceptional execution

Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly does an excellent job of examining a number of successful startups in various industries and highlighting how their exceptional execution made them successful. He admonishes readers that entrepreneurs don’t need to have a completely new business plan to be successful, but if they can execute even a common idea in an uncommon way, they can find success.

J. Robideau

What if launching and leading an xceptional business was simpler than you’ve ever imagined? Not easier. Not less time consuming. Not less gut wrenching, but simpler. Guess what: It is.
What if I told you many successful entrepreneurs didn’t start with a compelling vision or indeed a workable business plan? Guess what: That’s true too.
What if it was possible to dominate a market without any previous background in it? Well? It is.
Meet the Xceptionalists: entrepreneurs who live and breathe the xceptional execution ethos and made the breakthrough from “Dream it to Did it”. Drawn from every corner of the globe with turnovers ranging from US $100K to $130M, they show how.
From Outfit7 with its Talking Tom app nearing 1 billion downloads, to the fastest growing company in South America, Globant, to a family-like run business who continues to say “No” to the orderly queue of eager acquirers at their door ,Balsamiq. And more.
Best-selling author and international speaker Kevin Kelly distills from two decades of intensive research to highlight what makes xceptional businesses and their leaders succeed beyond all odds.
DO! Learn how to overcome idea killers, make your message cut through attention deficits, xceptionalise each contact point with your clients and grow your business to new heights.
Advance Praise for DO! the pursuit of xceptional execution
“Now I can retire in peace. Kevin Kelly has written the book I always wanted to write. And he’s done to the point of perfection–call it xceptional execution. Even the all-time best title: Do! Ah, Kevin, what a gift!”
Tom Peters
Co-author of the international best seller “In Search of Excellence” — the book that changed the way the world does business.

If you truly want to Think Big; Do will do it for you! Success will no longer be the exclusive domain of visionaries, entrepreneurs with fully loaded business plans and well financed startups. It can be anyone’s game –including yours. The huge barrier to entry is xceptional execution and Do highlights the DNA and strategies behind some of the brightest startups on the planet. In his engaging and energetic style and with extraordinary content, Kevin Kelly has become the voice of execution.
Jason Jennings, NY Times Bestselling Author of, It’s Not The Big That Eat The Small-It’s The Fast That Eat The Slow and The Reinventors

“In this remarkable book, Kevin Kelly skillfully proves it’s not the brilliant idea, but instead, the shining ability to execute simple plans that belies the greatest business success stories of our time. Read this book if you want to Do the great thing, and not just dream about it.”
Tim Sanders, author of NYT Best Seller Love is the Killer App and former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo!

“What got me was Kevin’s confession to having been an ‘idea killer’. He was a guy who looked for the reasons why…Not! His conversion to a DO’er is an inspiring journey through multiple examples of business successes achieved by others in a wide variety of fields worldwide. It’s not a book about him, it’s about them and how you can do what they did. Read this book to strengthen your belief in your ideas and in yourself.”
Jim Cathcart, Hall of Fame Professional Speaker, Author of Relationship Selling.

Awakening: A Christian Romance Novel (The Lewis Legacy Series, Book One)

Awakening: A Christian Romance Novel (The Lewis Legacy Series, Book One)

JoAnn Durgin

If you like well-written Christian romance that’s character driven and action packed, yet takes you on deepening spiritual journeys with the hero and heroine, you’ll love JoAnn Durgin’s debut novel, Awakening, published by Canadian publisher, Torn Veil.

Jude Urbanski

A God-fearing man. A God-seeking woman. For Sam Lewis and Lexa Clarke, it proves a combustible combination. Lexa Clarke signs up for a TeamWork Missions summer assignment expecting adventure in a far-off, exotic country. Instead, she’s sent to sweltering San Antonio to help rebuild homes destroyed by sudden flooding. She survives the four-hour bus trip from Houston, dust in the lungs, a flat tire, a tool-throwing incident and a spitting goat – not to mention an inquisition from a distractingly handsome cowboy – all before reaching the work camp. TeamWork director Sam Lewis isn’t sure what to think of his newest volunteer. She’s feisty, witty, and incredibly pretty, but looks more prepared to board a cruise ship than build houses. Burned by a past betrayal, he’s got a job to do, a reputation to uphold. Sam can’t afford to be distracted by a woman who attracts animals, defies his rules, finds trouble at every turn and questions God’s purpose. But when she tumbles from the top beam of one of the houses into his arms, Sam suspects his life will never be the same.

During their weeks together in the TeamWork camp, Sam and Lexa learn the power of forgiveness and healing. Enduring a chain of incidents which challenge their faith, trust and growing relationship, they look to the Lord for guidance as together they discover a love greater than either could ever imagine. At the end of the eight-week work camp, Sam is committed to a year-long, dangerous overseas mission for TeamWork. Can Lexa trust the Lord enough to let him go? Will Sam safely return and keep his promise to meet her at the Alamo? You’ll keep turning the pages of this sweeping romantic adventure.

With great characters, plenty of humor, enough emotion to make you shed a tear or two, and an ending that’ll have you cheering, Awakening will leave you breathless. Hold on tight. The adventures of Lewis and Clarke have only just begun!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Awakening is JoAnn Durgin’s debut novel. The first in the popular Lewis Legacy Series, this story is loosely based on JoAnn’s love story with her husband, Jim. Get ready for romance, adventure, friendship, faith and family in each installment of the series with Sam and Lexa Lewis and their lively TeamWork Missions volunteers. JoAnn and Jim live their three children in Southern Indiana and she works as a full-time estate administration paralegal in Louisville, Kentucky. She’s a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and its Indiana chapter as well as the Louisville Christian Writers.

Odds are, these ideas will only take a few minutes apiece to complete. The problem? You might feel like there’s not enough time to do all of them.

One Routine + Multiple Habits = Habit Stacking

We all know it’s not easy to add dozens of new habits to your day. But what you might not realize is it’s fairly easy to build a single new routine. The essence of habit stacking is to take a series of small changes (like eating a piece of fruit or sending a loving text message to your significant other) and build a ritual that you follow on a daily basis.

Habit stacking works because you eliminate the stress of trying to change too many things at once. Your goal is to simply focus on a single routine that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Within this routine is a series of actions (or small changes). All you have to do is to create a checklist and follow it every single day. That’s the essence of habit stacking.

LEARN: 97 Small Habits that Can Change Your Life

In the book “Habit Stacking: 97 Small Life Changes That Take Five Minutes Or Less,” you will discover 97 quick habits that can instantly improve your life. Plus you’ll discover how to create a simple routine (managed by a checklist) that you repeat on a daily basis. Even better, you’ll discover a few tools that will keep you motivated and consistent.

By completing dozens of small habits on a daily basis, you’ll be able to make giant leaps forward in your business, strengthen your personal relationships, stay on top of your finances, get organized and improve your health.

Never Work Again: Work Less, Earn More and Live Your Freedom

Erlend Bakke

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to start a business, already struggling with a business, or for those who have achieved some level of success… you will find something new in this one!

Danielle Marie

Never Work Again: Work Less, Earn More and Live Your Freedom

Welcome to a very different kind of business book.

Never Work Again shows you how you can build a successful and profitable business without the long hours and high stress that most entrepreneurs suffer from.

Trust me – I’ve been there and it’s not fun. In the months after I started my first business I didn’t know any better. My business was making me ill, but I was too wrapped up in what I was doing to spot the signs let alone to do anything about it. That is until the day I found myself on a London tube train begging a stranger to call me an ambulance and thinking I was going to die. That was my wake-up call. Luckily I got a second chance.

That day I realised that life is short and precious and I made a decision that if I pulled through I was going to do things differently. I decided to restructure my business efforts so that I could live life to the full.

What I decided to create for myself was:

A business that I could be proud of
The financial freedom to live the life of my dreams
The time freedom to do the things I love and to be with the people who matter most to me

And now I want to help you do the same.

After all, deciding to start your own business is something you do because you have a vision of a better life for you and your family. It’s your chance to take control and live life on your terms. And done right it will give you the financial freedom and the time freedom to do the things you love, when you want to do them and with the people who matter most in your life.

Never Work Again will show you how to create a business that gives you the time to work on your own passions in life.

In short, a business that allows you to work less and earn more.

Starting Your Virtual Business:

Never Work Again shows you how you can easily start your own no-money down virtual business – a business that will make you money online and allow you to quickly achieve financial freedom and time freedom.

All you need to do is choose from a number of simple blueprints and follow the one that’s right for you
You will learn how to create positive habits that will free up your time and allow your business to grow more quickly than you ever thought possible
You will be able to work from home or work virtually from anywhere on the planet – what’s your favourite city or beach?!
And you will learn how to automate and outsource your business, leveraging other people’s time for your own benefit so that you can start living the life you really want

But more than this, Never Work Again explores what it means to live a truly happy and fulfilled life – to really live the life of your dreams. It encourages you to examine your own motivations and desires in order to determine your true purpose and path in life – so you can discover what freedom really means for you.

Remember, your time is precious – in fact, it’s the most precious resource that you have. Don’t waste another second of it doing things that you don’t absolutely love. Learn how to start creating the life of your dreams today.

Man: The Dwelling Place of God

Man: The Dwelling Place of God

A.W. Tozer

Great read, down to earth, and useful information. Much is said to help the reader get and keep the right perspective in our relationship with our Father (GOD). It was/is a real blessing and I would recommend to anyone who is interested in growing deeper with our Savior Jesus Christ and our Father God.

duane1962

“As God’s self-knowledge lies in the eternal Spirit, so man’s self-knowledge is by his own spirit, and his knowledge of God is by the direct impression of the Spirit of God upon the spirit of man.”

In the heart of every Christian is the dwelling place where the Triune God desires to fellowship with his people. Tozer explores this truth with brilliant insight and care for God’s people. It is no wonder that this book has provided encouragement and comfort to Christians for over a century!

Love is a Verb: Stories of What Happens When Love Comes Alive

Gary Chapman

The book came in a timely manner and was in good condition. The book itself was a great book, very inspirational.

Pamela S. Ritsch

Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book The Five Love Languages is a regular on the New York Times Best Sellers list–even after being in print for fifteen years–and has made the term “love language” a part of everyday speech.

Love Is a Verb takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories–written by everyday people–go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a “Love Lesson” to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.

Little Black Sambo: A Children's Picture Book and Story (Illustrated) (Children's Picture Books)

Little Black Sambo: A Children’s Picture Book and Story (Illustrated) (Children’s Picture Books)

Helen Bannerman

A true classic! The story is sweet and adventurous for children and is NOT racially biased!! I remember the story from my childhood and was pleased to be able to share it with my grandchildren.

Candace Grant

The magical story of Little Black Sambo is one that little children can get into and recall easily. It grabs their attention and entertains in the same way as classics like the Three Little Pigs or The Three Bears. This version has lots of beautiful color illustrations (for devices that display color) along with black and white sketches that fire children’s imagination and bring the story to life. It’s far more captivating and mesmerizing than many modern children’s stories because it’s written in a style that captures a child’s imagination and makes it easy to experience the joy of make believe. If you are looking for a bedtime story for young children, this tale of a little Indian boy can’t be beat.

Little Black Sambo was written by Helen Bannerman, a Scottish lady living in India during the 1890’s for her two daughters during a train trip across India. The story is set in India and tells of the experiences of a little Indian boy who goes for a walk in the jungle. He ends up giving away his clothing to hungry tigers who wanted to eat him. The story has a unique ending that children love and it has to do Sambo getting his clothes back and then eating pancakes, but I won’t spoil the ending by revealing exactly what happens.

There are many parents and grandparents who will remember Sambo and his triumph over adversity from their childhood and who want to share it with a new generation and this digital ebook makes sharing very easy. It’s very legible on Kindle for iPhone/iPad/Android/Blackberry or Kindle for PC or other devices where you can view it in color. (Standard Kindle is currently black and white only)

Be aware that the story has attracted a fair bit of controversy over the years from people who feel it contains racist overtones. To children it is just a fairy tale and it is only when they are taught to discriminate by adults that they perceive things differently. Children do not have a natural color prejudice and delight in this lovely little tale – a tale that even a child can recognize as fiction.

Raspberries and Vinegar (A Farm Fresh Romance)

Raspberries and Vinegar (A Farm Fresh Romance)

Valerie Comer

Until I read this book, I’d never heard of “farmlit,” and didn’t know what to expect. Romantic, fun, with refreshing values, and small town atmosphere, readers will enjoy this romp on the farm!

Tara

Sweet like Raspberries. Tart like Vinegar.

Josephine Shaw: complex, yet singleminded. A tiny woman with big ideas and, some would say, a mouth to match. But what does she really know about sustainable living as it relates to the real world? After all, she and her two friends are new to farming.

Zachary Nemesek is back only until his dad recovers enough to work his own land again. When Zach discovers three helpless females have taken up residence at the old farm next door, he expects trouble. But a mouse invasion proves Jo has everything under control. Is there anything she can’t handle? And surely there’s something sweet beneath all that tart.

Raspberries and Vinegar is the first novel in the Farm Fresh Romance series which sees three young women purchase an old farm in northern Idaho together with the purpose of growing their own food and proving to those around them that they can make a difference. It is a story of living sustainably on the land and focusing on real, local food from a Christian point-of-view. It doesn’t pad the issues nor preach about them, but allows the characters the freedom to grapple with environmentalism as believers.

A contemporary Christian romance novel, Raspberries and Vinegar crosses genres into farm lit. Readers consistently comment on the uniqueness and creativity of the blend. It’s an Amazon bestseller in Christian women’s fiction.

“Valerie Comer’s voice has definitely been missing in the Christian fiction market.”

*~* EXCERPT *~*

Jo straightened her back, pasted on a smile, and consulted her clipboard. Ellie, at the desk, had informed her the resident of Room 224 lived in the present, at least some days. She tapped the door lightly and nudged it open. “Hello, Mrs. Humbert?”
An old woman, white hair floating around her face like a halo, sat in her wheelchair by a small table. A man swiveled at the intrusion from his seat facing the window.

Jo caught her breath. Zach?

“Please come in, my dear.” The old lady peered at her through rheumy eyes. “Do I know you?”

Jo closed the space. She could block Zach from her thoughts. This was her job. She took the soft white hand in hers. “I’m Josephine Shaw, the facility’s new nutritionist, and I’m here to talk to you about food.”
Zach chuckled. “Be careful, Grandma. She’ll toss your stash of candies in the garbage.”

Thanks a lot, buster. Jo shot a glare at Zach. Just her luck he felt the need to interfere on his grandmother’s behalf.

Jo turned her back on him and tried for a light tone. “Unless you have any fair-trade organic dark chocolate in there. That stuff is hard for me to resist.”

Mrs. Humbert’s poufy hair shimmered as she shook her head. “Now that’s something I don’t have, but John can pick some up for us if you like.” She patted Jo’s hand. “Then I can bribe you to be nice to me.”
John? Jo shot a questioning look at Zach, but he just lifted a shoulder and shook his head. She squeezed the old lady’s hand. “I don’t need bribing.” Not with anyone who needed help, and the fact that this was Zach’s grandmother clinched the deal. “It’s my job to make sure you’re getting the best possible nutrition, though, so let’s keep those empty calorie snacks at a minimum, shall we?”

Zach laughed.

If it hadn’t been directed at her, Jo might have enjoyed the deep, full sound. But no. It was at her expense. She gritted her teeth and swiveled to face him. “May I ask what’s so funny?”

He waved a hand. “Really, does it matter? Why make big changes? Let these folks enjoy the remainder of their days and eat what they like. It’s not like a diet change is going to make that much of a difference.”
She narrowed her eyes. “It’s my job. I’ve been hired to improve the menu.”

Zach leaned back in the chair and ran his gaze down and up her. Not, sadly, in a romantic way. More like an intimidation attempt.

The Forgiven Duke (A Forgotten Castles Novel)

The Forgiven Duke (A Forgotten Castles Novel)

Jamie Carie

For the life of me, I am enjoying this series. And when I say it’s melodrama at its finest, well part of me feels like I’m sneaking in some daytime soap watching while I read these books. There is just something about the storyline that is impossibly over-the-top and yet so fascinating that you can’t wait to see what happens next!

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon – the path of least resistance – Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton – the path less traveled by – on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.
