Your hard work is paying off. You are doing well in your field. But there is something standing between you and the next level of achievement. That something may just be one of your own annoying habits.Perhaps one small flaw - a behaviour you barely even recognise - is the only thing that's keeping you from where you want to be. It may be that the very characteristic that you believe got you where you are - like the drive to win at all costs - is what's holding you back. As this book explains, people often do well in spite of certain habits rather than because of them-and need a "to stop" list rather than one listing what "to do".Marshall Goldsmith's expertise is in helping global leaders overcome their unconscious annoying habits and become more successful. His one-on-one coaching comes with a six-figure price tag - but in this book you get his great advice for much less. Recently named as one of the world's five most-respected executive coaches by Forbes, he has worked with over 100 major CEOs and their management teams at the world's top businesses. His clients include corporations such as Goldman Sachs, Glaxo SmithKline, Johnson and Johnson and GE.

Publisher: Simon and Schuster
A New York Times bestseller! For the first time in his own words, President-elect Donald J. Trump explains his plan to make America great again! He wants to â€śput Americaâ€™s interests firstâ€”and that means doing whatâ€™s right for our economy, our national security, and our public safety.â€ť Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump conjured images of American strength and culture when small towns boomed with industry, mom and pop shops bustled, and people said, â€śMerry Christmas!â€ť The media scoffed at Trumpâ€™s vision and the people who supported him; they were blinded by the Clinton machine. But their eyes were opened after Trump won 62 million votes and the Oval Office. Even Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said, â€śDonald Trump heard a voice in this country that no one else heard.â€ť As Trump says in Time to Get Tough, â€śIâ€™ve built businesses across the globe. Iâ€™ve dealt with foreign leaders. Iâ€™ve created tens of thousands of American jobs. My whole life has been about executing deals and making real moneyâ€”massive money. Thatâ€™s what I do for a living: make big things happenâ€¦â€ť Trump is about to make the biggest deals of his life, and heâ€™s going to make them for America! From reversing lax immigration policies to eliminating regulations that restrict small businesses, Donald Trump understands that America â€śdoesnâ€™t need cowardice, it needs courage.â€ť President Elect Trump is about to â€śMake America Great Againâ€ť and Time to Get Tough is his blueprint!
