“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” -- Mahatma Gandhi
It's back to school time. To help students get the edge, Getting Results the Agile Way is available for free on the Kindle for a limited time:
Getting Results the Agile Way: A Personal Results System for Work and Life
Grab it today, so you don't miss out.
If you're a student, you can use Agile Results as your unfair advantage.
It will put some of the best science on your side, and help you master your time management and productivity skills. It's more than a system. It's a playbook full of proven practices for personal effectiveness.
It's the book I wish somebody gave me long ago.
Back to school time is a great time to do a reset and own your future.
That’s really what Getting Results the Agile Way is all about – owning your future. It helps you be the author of your life and write your story forward. By focusing on meaningful results, taking action, and creating continuous learning loops, you set yourself up for success.
It’s a playbook you can use for school, work, and life to help you make the most of what you've got, and enjoy the journey and the destination.
Times are tough. The world changes under our feet. You need a system to get rapid results and to embrace change.
You can actually use change as a way to transform any situation into opportunities, if you know how.
Maybe the most important thing you learn from Agile Results is how to flow incremental value … to yourself and others.
Darwin taught us long ago that it’s not the smartest or the fastest that survive … it’s the most adaptable who thrive.
The problem is that by default, we’re creatures of habit, and we aren’t very good at change, unless we know the habits and practices that can help us think, feel, and take action more effectively.
Even if you consider yourself more of an “artist” than a productivity type, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Agile Results has helped many artists experience what it’s like to be a “productive artist.” In fact, a key focus in Agile Results is leveraging your energy and creativity for breakthrough results. One of the big ideas is actually adding more Creative Hours to your week so that you can leap frog ahead in today’s ultra-competitive world.
You’ll be amazed at what you’re capable of, when you use the ideas from Agile Results to enhance your focus, play to your strengths, and sharpen your ability to complete things in record time.
There are a lot of time management and productivity systems out there. That’s a good thing, because it means you don’t have to start from scratch.
But there’s a challenge.
The challenge is, how do you integrate all of the best principles, patterns, and practices for productivity and time management into a simple system that works for you?
Agile Results is a simple system for meaningful results that integrates the world’s best techniques for productivity and time management. Here are some of the key distinctions that make Agile Results different, but complimentary and compatible with other systems:
In other words, you don’t have to throw out your existing systems. Instead, you can enhance your existing time management system, or get more out of it, by using some or all of the insights and actions from Agile Results.
Grab your unfair advantage today, so you don't miss out, and tell all the students you know so they, too, can have an unfair advantage:
Go back to school in style and unleash what you’re capable of.
