The secret to an extraordinary life starts with five simple changes that anyone can make. No matter who you are, where you come from, what you do for a living, or how much money you have, everyone has a shot at greatness. Zack Friedman has inspired millions with his powerful insights, including more than fourteen million who have read his advice in Forbes. In his ground breaking new book, The Lemonade Life, Friedman starts with a fundamental question: What drives success? It's not only hard work, talent, and skill. The most successful people have one thing in common, the power to flip five internal switches. We all have these five switches, and when activated, they are the secret to fuel success, create happiness, and conquer anything. The Lemonade Life is filled with inspirational and practical advice that will teach you: Why you should write yourself a $10 million check Why your career depends on the Greek alphabet Why you need ikigai in your life How Judge Judy can help you have better work meetings How these twenty questions will change your life Learn from the entrepreneur who failed 5,126 times before becoming a billionaire, the fourteenth-century German monk who helped reinvent Domino's Pizza, the technology visionary who asked himself the same question every morning, the country music icon who bought more than one hundred million books, and the ice cream truck driver who made $110,237 in less than one hour. With powerful stories and actionable lessons, this book will profoundly change the way you live, lead, and work. Your path to greatness starts with a simple choice. Everyday, you're choosing to live one of two lives: the Lemon Life or the Lemonade Life. Which life will you lead?
Building a successful company and career doesn't mean sacrificing your family, health, or life. You check email the moment you lift your head off the pillow in the morning. You bring work with you on vacation, sneak glances at your smart phone during family dinners, and take business calls and texts at your kid's sports games. It's as if you've been forced to make a choice between your company or your life, sacrificing time for yourself and family for the sake of career success. But it doesn't have to be that way. The most successful business leaders have learned to bust through the direct one-to-one relationship between hours worked and value created by refocusing their company, department, or team's best talent and attention on their highest value activities-generating hundreds, even thousands, of hours of value in the process. In The Freedom Formula, Wall Street Journal bestselling author and successful entrepreneur David Finkel will help you operationalize working smarter. No fluff, no theory, Finkel shares the detailed blueprint to create maximum value for your company without working nights, weekends, or while on vacation. You'll learn: Why working longer and harder doesn't pay off (and what actually does) Why the 80-20 principle doesn't go far enough (and how to take it to its most productive extreme) How to escape the Time and Effort Economy How to structure your day and week so that you reclaim five or more hours each week in usable blocks of your best time How to leverage the five Freedom Accelerators to get your life back faster And much more! Whether you're a business owner, top executive, key manager-or aspire to be one-The Freedom Formula offers a radical new approach to structuring your time and priorities (and your team's) in order to reclaim hours of your day-and the freedom to live your life, not just your job.

Reading Face to Face is like being a fly on the wall, watching Brian Grazer work his magic. Utterly entertaining, this is how you become Hollywood's best producer. -Malcolm Gladwell, author of Talking to Strangers Legendary Hollywood producer and author of the bestselling A Curious Mind, Brian Grazer is back with a captivating new book about the life-changing ways we can connect with one another. Much of Brian Grazer's success-as a #1 New York Times bestselling author, Academy Award-winning producer, father, and husband-comes from his ability to establish genuine connections with almost anyone. In Face to Face, he takes you around the world and behind the scenes of some of his most iconic movies and television shows, like A Beautiful Mind, Empire, Arrested Development, American Gangster, and 8 Mile, to show just how much in-person encounters have revolutionized his life-and how they have the power to change yours. With his flair for intriguing stories, Grazer reveals what he's learned through interactions with people like Bill Gates, Taraji P. Henson, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Eminem, Prince, Spike Lee, and the Afghani rapper activist Sonita: that the secret to a bigger life lies in personal connection. In a world where our attention is too often focused downward at our devices, Grazer argues that we are missing an essential piece of the human experience. Only when we are face to face, able to look one another in the eyes, can we form the kinds of connections that expand our world views, deepen our self-awareness, and ultimately lead to our greatest achievements and most meaningful moments. When we lift our eyes to look at the person in front of us, we open the door to infinite possibility.

Everyone gets 168 hours a week, but it never feels like enough, does it? Work gobbles up the lion's share--many professionals are working as much as 70 hours a week--leaving less and less for rest, exercise, family, and friends.

Just imagine having free time again. It's not a pipe dream. In Free to Focus, New York Times bestselling author Michael Hyatt reveals to readers nine proven ways to win at work so they are finally free to succeed at the rest of life--their health, relationships, hobbies, and more. He helps readers redefine their goals, evaluate what's working, cut out the nonessentials, focus on the most important tasks, manage their time and energy, and build momentum for a lifetime of success.
What if everything you know about raw talent, hard work, and great performance is wrong? Very few people are truly great at what they do. But why aren't they?

Talent is Overrated will change the way you think about your life and work - and will inspire you to achieve more in everything you do. Great performance isn't reserved for a preordained few.
