Improved Question-Book on the Life of Christ: Anonymous
Every scientist has his or her ´´ultimate question,´´ the unknown quantity that, if answered, would break open their field. In the spirit of this, Edge.org publisher John Brockman asks 284 of the world´s leading scientists, academics, artists, and intellectuals: ´´What is the last question?´´ Contributors include: Jared Diamond: ´´Why is there such widespread public opposition to science and scientific reasoning in the United States, the world leader in every major branch of science?´´Steven Pinker: ´´How can we empower the better angels of our nature?´´Carlo Rovelli: ´´Is there an ultimate reality?´´Nina Jablonski: ´´When will race disappear?´´Kevin Kelly: ´´How can the process of science be improved?´´Andrei Linde: ´´Where were the laws of physics written before the universe was born?´´Mario Livio: ´´Will it ever be possible to download the information stored in the human brain?´´Ian McEwan: ´´If the sum of all significant knowledge is finite, what proportion of it can humans, aided by intelligent machines, eventually attain?´´George Dyson: ´´Why are there no trees in the ocean?´´Dylan Evans: ´´Will civilization collapse before I die?´´And many, many others
In today’s frenetic, uncertain world, the ´´same old, same old” routines are perfect ways to go nowhere fast. What has worked for you before—professionally or personally—no longer gets results. Whether you’ve been downsized, reached the end of a long relationship, or found yourself questioning where you are in life, it’s clear you need to change. To innovate. Make it new. Make yourself new. Now, in this invaluable book, the world-renowned ´´Dean of Innovation,” Jeff DeGraff, shares his tried-and-true techniques on how to reinvent yourself—creatively and with maximum impact.Innovation You reveals DeGraff’s unique four-step program to bolster your ingenuity and remake your life. From forging ahead in a new career to losing weight to finally pursuing that long-held dream, DeGraff’s strategies are effective and easy to follow. Inside you will learn to Rethink Innovation: Find ways to think outside the box, seek out diverse opinions, and pay attention to the next great trend. Rethink Your Approach: Use DeGraff’s Competing Values Framework to identify your natural innovation profile—do you compete, collaborate, create, or control?—and then deliberately draw from the other styles to augment your usual tactics. Rethink Your Methods: Put your reinvention plan in motion—set specific, realistic, and meaningful targets, cultivate relationships with relevant mentors and experts, and try alternate methods to achieve your goals. Rethink the Journey: Understand that innovation is a process and that progress comes in cycles rather than a quick straight line. Accept uncertainty, question assumptions, and acknowledge areas where you can improve. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Degraff.

The questions we ask ourselves determine our lives. Our thoughts are nothing more than a continuous question-and-answer session we have with ourselves. Our lives - material, emotional, spiritual, and financial - are a direct reflection of our thoughts. Eighty-five percent of these thoughts are both habitual and unconscious. Meaning, we are asking and answering the exact same questions every day, usually in the same way over and over again. If there is any area of your life you´re not 100% happy with, the root of the needed change is in the questions you´re asking of yourself. And since these questions are habitual and unconscious, the first order of business is to become aware of the questions. Only then can we change them. That is exactly what we´re doing with this book. The improved quality of your questions will lead to an improved quality of life. No matter how much skill and how many resources you add to your arsenal, bad questions will always drag you backwards into failure. Not taking full control of your questions will lead you into the randomness of the world - good days and outcomes followed by just as many bad days and outcomes. If this has happened to you before, there isn´t anything wrong with you. You just didn´t know what you didn´t know. No one ever told you about this. There aren´t any classes in school teaching you the habit of asking strong, empowering questions. Some people live 80 years and never consider what they´ve been asking themselves all day every day, thus they think success in life is based on randomness, the luck of the draw. Success and happiness are not random. You become exactly what you ask yourself. Are you ready to ask yourself better questions and improve your life, one answer at a time? You´d better be, because the journey begins now. Let´s get started. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dre Baldwin. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/078513/bk_acx0_078513_sample.mp3.

Have you ever wondered where your organization is headed? Have you ever asked yourself: why is it that some organizations are more successful than others? Management fads can bring some benefit, but they rarely deliver the sustained success their advocates promised. Equally, while the caliber of an organization´s leadership is important, along with the strategies they pursue, they in themselves are not the answer to the question.Beyond Default argues that there is something more fundamental at play; something that ultimately determines the destiny of an organization. All companies are on a trajectory to their ´´default future;´´ a place they will end up if they don´t take new action. Identifying this default future and knowing whether this future is acceptable or not, are the ultimate keys to sustaining future success for any business.Written by two experienced strategy consultants, Beyond Default provides an important perspective on sustaining business success.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.
