The techniques of time management can alter the way you live your life. With time management techniques, you can truly maximize the way you live every minute of your work, school, or personal life. This book asks you the question: do you find your life slipping away from you? Do you find that you haven't met your true success or life satisfaction, despite your continuation in the same mundane job and life? You were probably taught to fuel yourself directly into a job you don't like for résumé purposes. And now, you find your day slipping away from you; you find each minute at your computer sliding away like it never happened. You aren't maximizing your potential, and whatever time you waste at work due to lack of inspiration or procrastination has to be made up at home, thus robbing you of a personal life. Stop the procrastination cycle in its tracks. Procrastination has many causes. You find yourself with a massive task before you; you feel the deadline creeping toward you. And yet: you can do anything but that task. You find yourself scrambling at the end to deliver a sloppy product: a product you cannot be proud of. Eliminate your procrastination cycle. Stop the scrambling, and begin to manage your time wisely. Everything you create pushes you forward to greater success, and no one achieved anything with abounding procrastination. Maximize your life and achieve success with proven techniques This book contains a plethora of different proven techniques that can jumpstart you on your path to greater time management skills. Look to the seven steps to achieve work and life balance; the one-week plan to achieve time management at work; and the PERT method to eliminate procrastination. Start living today. 1.

What is the evolutionary purpose of a woman's orgasm? On today's show, Susie ponders this question and looks at a wired.com article that called the female O a "mystery". If an orgasm isn't necessary to procreate, why does it exist biologically? Men need an orgasm to produce semen, so the science makes sense, but what about women? Is the fairer sex entitled to pleasure just for a bonus, for fun and feeling good? So many questions… but here comes Susie to the rescue. Next, a transsexual porn star tells all about what you won't see in an X-rated movie. Susie has been following the blog of PrettyQueer.com. She reads from the blogger's recent article about the top five moments never seen on a porn screen. It's all about the money! Then in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, a listener writes in with a disturbing question. She asks: "I'm a high-school teacher and my boss wants me to include abstinence-only in our curriculum called Life Management Skills. How can I make this course more sex-positive and still keep my job?"Have a question? You can call Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110.

In the early 1980s, Caterpillar, Inc. lost one million dollars per day for three consecutive years. Its continuing existence came into question. Today, "CAT" is the world's most profitable manufacturer of construction and mining equipment and large engines. The now-legendary global company made numerous well-calculated, though risky, decisions for three consecutive decades - in the process scaling to heights unimaginable to even the finest business enterprises. How did they do it? The Caterpillar Way. Senior management at CAT facilitated the authors' one-year odyssey through the hallways and intriguing history of the construction-industry giant. This inspiring audiobook takes you behind the scenes with the CEOs, executive vice presidents, managers, dealers, customers, union bosses, and Wall Street analysts who were players in Caterpillar's drive to global dominance. The Caterpillar Way provides essential management lessons in powerful behind-the-scenes stories.

Like all of us, though few so visibly, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. No one with any meaningful role in economic decision making in the world saw beforehand the storm for what it was. How had our models so utterly failed us? To answer this question, Alan Greenspan embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future, and how it can predict it better. Economic risk is a fact of life in every realm, from home to business to government at all levels. Whether we're conscious of it or not, we make wagers on the future virtually every day, one way or another. Very often, however, we're steering by out-of-date maps, when we're not driven by factors entirely beyond our conscious control. The Map and the Territory is nothing less than an effort to update our forecasting conceptual grid using twenty-first-century technologies. It integrates the history of economic prediction, the new work of behavioral economists, and the fruits of the author's own remarkable career to offer a thrillingly lucid and empirically based grounding in what we can know about economic forecasting and what we can't. The audiobook explores how culture is and isn't destiny and probes what we can predict about the world's biggest looming challenges, from debt and the reform of the welfare state to our competition with China to natural disasters in an age of global warming. No map is the territory, but Greenspan's approach, grounded in his trademark rigor, wisdom, and unprecedented context, ensures that this particular map will assist in safe journeys down many different roads, traveled by individuals, businesses, and the state. 1.

If you saw a toothpick on the floor, what would you do? This seemingly innocuous question was posed to Subir Chowdhury by one of his longtime clients and ultimately led him to a profound realization: Good enough is not enough. The best processes in the world won't work without developing the kind of mind-set - a caring mind-set - that is needed to achieve real and sustainable change in both organizations and individuals. In his compelling new book, best-selling author and globally recognized management consultant Subir Chowdhury tackles an issue that has haunted him in his work with many of the world's largest organizations. Why is it that some improve only incrementally while others improve 50 times that? The ideas and training are exactly the same. What is the difference? The difference, Chowdhury explains, is the ability to nurture the skills, loyalty and passion of the people who make up an organization. It is a culture built on straightforwardness, thoughtfulness, accountability and resolve. Organizations and individuals that embrace all of these "STAR" attributes - not just one or two of them - will shine. He goes further, showing us why having a caring mind-set outside of work is integral to both personal and professional success. A powerful guide to living a successful life and career, The Difference will inspire you to be the difference - at work or home. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dominic Hoffman.
