About this title

Synopsis:

Tools, tips and strategies to stop the cycle of 'busy' and start getting ahead

Stand Out shows you how to stop working so much, and start achieving instead. Everyone is busy, but working harder to do more isn't getting us anywhere. We're overwhelmed, distracted and detached, and our greatest fear is that this will never change. This book is your guide to taking back your life. Through simple models, robust diagnostics and practical suggestions you'll identify where you are now and how to implement real change. Explore how to move on from Check Out (the sense that you are just going through the motions), combat Burn Out (the feeling that you're on a treadmill that is dialled too fast for your legs, brain and talents to keep pace with) and move through Freak Out (that overriding anxiety generated by knowing where you want to go but not getting any traction). Real-life stories, anecdotes and ‘life hacks' provide ideas you can implement immediately, while in-depth discussion of psychological theory explains the science behind the actions. The goal is not to find your One True Passion, but to identify what's most important right now. When you're clear on purpose and actually making progress, you hit the sweet spot of activity that allows your talents to shine.

The concept of 'being at work' has changed. We're expected to be plugged in 24/7, and continually expected to do more and more with the same 24 hours in every day. Organisations suffer, families suffer and workers suffer – so why do we perpetuate this cycle? This book shows you how to hop off the hamster wheel and thrive through relentless change by doing less – but by doing it smarter.

  • Treat self-care as an imperative for success
  • Connect to what's important here and now
  • Stop day-dreaming and put action to purpose
  • Take control of your day, your path and your life

It's not about productivity training or the latest organisational system – it's about having the tools, mindset and skills in place to make your activities work for you. Stand Out helps you find the courage and optimism to live the life you crave, let go of the ‘shoulds' and shows you how to prioritise what really matters.

From the Back Cover:

STAND OUT DON'T FREAK OUT

Being busy has become a badge of honour—albeit a heavy, awkward, uncomfortable badge that doesn't go with anything in your wardrobe. It doesn't have to be like this, you can bring calm to the chaos.

Whether you find yourself checked out, burnt out, or just plain freaked out, I'm here to tell you this: you deserve better. Using psychology, this book takes you deep into the key pillars for our happiness, health and sanity to help you live a life filled with purpose and progress; a Stand Out life.

But be fairly warned. Your journey won't be without challenge —you will be digging in, and so you should, because the stakes are crazy-high; I mean, this is big. Imagine a life to truly brag about, where those things that matter get done. Go on, close your eyes and imagine it for a second. Bliss, right? A bit scary too? Good. You're in the right place.

So I'll see you on the flip side. Technically I suppose that's the inside, right?

Together we've got this.
