This book is in public domain and you can read the ebook PDF online by searching in Google : "awareness anthony de mello pdf" Wow. Just wow. Thanks to you guys, Ive been listening to the Anthony de Mello recording for the last 3 days. Amazing. What a voice of sanity. And funny! Its really too perfect. On the recording you hear a pleasant , energetic Anthony De Mello speaking in front of a large audience. With little fuss, Anthony De Mello cheerfully begins explaining to them through stories, jokes and excercises exactly how phony, mechanical, deluded and completely selfish they are. How meaningless their lives, how false and foolish their ideas about God, love, family and country. The antidote? Awareness, awareness awareness. Wake up! These themes continue on for several hours. Man, this isnt a seminar, its more like a spiritual atom bomb! With a smiley face painted on it! How Anthony De Mello can keep a profoundly illusion-shattering conversation like this warm, light-hearted and funny is beyond me...a testament to his utter sincerity and wisdom. It's really something. The connection speaker-to-audience is palpable, not unlike an Eckhart Tolle recording. But with a bit more attitude, perhaps. Eckhart tolle radiates stillness, Anthony de Mello confronts you If you are on a spiritual path, listen to this lecture, also if you enjoy Eckhart Tolle Power of Now or A New Earth or Stillness Speaks , Byron Katie, Marianne Williamson, Adyashanti, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Thomas Merton, Ignacio Larranaga, Henri Nouwen, Pavel Kolmacka , Werner Erhard ,Landmark Forum, Anthony de Mello, Thomas Merton, Rajneesh Osho, Alan Watts, Ramana Maharshi, Wayne Dyer, Mooji, Don Miguel Ruiz, Pema Chodron, Mooji Spirituality means Waking Up. "As you identify less and less with the me, you will be more at ease with everybody and with everything. Do you know why? Because you are no longer afraid of being hurt or not liked. You no longer desire to impress anyone. Can you imagine the relief when you don’t have to impress anybody anymore? Oh, what a relief. Happiness at last!" "Suffering points out that there is falsehood somewhere. Suffering occurs when you clash with reality. When your illusions clash with reality when your falsehoods clash with the truth, then you have suffering. Otherwise there is no suffering." This is an excellent audio book by Anthony De Mello. I found him after Eckhart Tolle recommended his book "Awareness" . I read Anthony De Mello's book "Awareness" and found the audio lectures that made up the text here in YouTube. The full text of his book "Awareness" is in public domain and you can search for it. I have posted about him a few times and won't repeat myself here, other than to say that I find Anthony De Mello's work to be profound and beautiful. Anthony De Mello's spiritual classic remains at the top of the Fount bestsellers more than five years after its original publication. One of the most gifted spiritual guides of the 20th century, de Mello uses humour, compassion and insight to help his readers into a real understanding of the importance of "awareness" in understanding ourselves and the world around us. Awareness is a comprehensive spiritual guide filled with wisdom as it tackles life's big questions--love, anger and fear, change, suffering, happiness and loss. Anthony de Mello's talks/books are very interesting in that he is a Christian but his ideas are very similar to Eckhart Tolle (and I'll venture to say the real spirituality - which is within ourselves).

How Starbucks Started, Became Popular, Expanded Its Business, Advertises (2011)

Published on Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:14:42

Howard D. Schultz (born July 19, 1953) is an American businessman. He is best known as the chairman and CEO of Starbucks and a former owner of the Seattle SuperSonics. He was a member of the Board of Directors at Square, Inc. In 1998, Schultz co-founded Maveron, an investment group, with Dan Levitan. In 2012, Forbes magazine ranked Schultz as the 354th richest person in the United States, with a net worth of $1.5 billion. After graduating, he worked as a salesperson for Xerox Corporation and was quickly promoted to a full sales representative.[9] In 1979 he became a general manager for Swedish drip coffee maker manufacturer, Hammarplast,[8] where he became responsible for their U.S. operations with a staff of twenty.[9] In 1981, Schultz visited a client of Hammarplast, a fledgling coffee-bean shop called Starbucks Coffee Company in Seattle, curious as to why it ordered so many plastic cone filters.[9] He was impressed with the company's knowledge of coffee and kept in contact over the next year, expressing interest in working with them. A year later, he joined Starbucks as the Director of Marketing.[11] On a buying trip to Milan, Italy for Starbucks, Schultz noted that coffee bars existed on practically every street. He learned that they not only served excellent espresso, they also served as meeting places or public squares; they were a big part of Italy's societal glue, and there were 200,000 of them in the country. On his return, he tried to persuade the owners (including Jerry Baldwin) to offer traditional espresso beverages in addition to the whole bean coffee, leaf teas and spices they had long offered. After a successful pilot of the cafe concept, the owners refused to roll it out company-wide, saying they didn't want to get into the restaurant business. Frustrated, Schultz decided to leave Starbucks in 1985. He needed $400,000 to open the first store and started the business. He simply did not have the money and his wife was pregnant with the first baby. Jerry Baldwin and Gordon Bowker offered to help. Schultz also received $100,000 from a doctor who was impressed by Schultz’s energy to “take a gamble”.[12] By 1986, he raised all the money he needed to open the first store 'Il Giornale' after the Milanese newspaper. Two years later, the original Starbucks management decided to focus on Peet's Coffee & Tea and sold its Starbucks retail unit to Schultz and Il Giornale for $3.8 million. Schultz renamed Il Giornale with the Starbucks name, and aggressively expanded its reach across the United States. Schultz's keen insight in real estate and his hard-line focus on growth drove him to expand the company rapidly. Schultz did not believe in franchising, and made a point of having Starbucks retain ownership of every domestic outlet. On 26 June 1992, Starbucks had its initial public offering and trading of its common stock under the stock ticker NASDAQ-NMS: SBUX. The offering was done by Alex, Brown & Sons Inc. and Wertheim Schroder & Co. Inc.[13] Schultz authored the book Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time with Dori Jones Yang in 1997. His second book Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life Without Losing Its Soul with Joanne Gordon, was published in 2011. On January 8, 2008 Schultz returned as CEO of Starbucks after an eight-year hiatus.[14] At this time, Schultz was earning a total compensation of $9,740,471, which included a base salary of $1,190,000, and options granted of $7,786,105.[15] Schultz is a significant stakeholder in Jamba Juice.[16] On the first of November 2013, it was announced that Schultz had stepped down from the board of Square, to be replaced by former Goldman Sachs executive David Viniar.

Daniel Goleman on Focus: The Secret to High Performance and Fulfilment

Published on Fri, 24 Jun 2016 23:25:26 Filmed at the Royal College of Music on 25th October 2013. Psychologist Daniel Goleman shot to fame with his groundbreaking bestseller Emotional Intelligence. The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life. A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships. Now Goleman comes to Intelligence Squared for an exclusive talk on the themes of his latest book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. Attention, he will argue, is an underrated asset for high achievers in any field. Incorporating findings from neuroscience, Goleman will show why we need three kinds of focus: inner, for self-awareness; other, for the empathy that builds effective relationships; and outer, for understanding the larger systems in which organisations operate. Those who excel rely on Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and positive emotions that help improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence.

On May 22nd he came to Intelligence Squared to share the insights he has acquired over his 40-year career into the nature of how we think, decide and act. Dennett revealed his favourite thinking tools, or 'intuition pumps', that he and others have developed for addressing life's most fundamental questions. As well as taking a fresh look at familiar moves -- Occam's Razor, reductio ad absurdum -- he discussed new cognitive solutions designed for the most treacherous subject matter: evolution, meaning, consciousness and free will.

The Automatic Customer by John Warrillow TEL 229

Published on Wed, 30 Dec 2015 19:47:39

A summary of things you should know about The Automatic Customer according to John Warrillow: Introduction In this episode John Warrillow takes a deep dive into his book, The Automatic Customer, where he discusses how to create a subscription business in any industry. In his book Warrillow provides 9 unique business models based on a simple step-by-step guide for building an online subscription based business that are designed to fit nearly any kind of industry. The goal of the book is to teach you the fundamentals of recurring revenue, how to attract automatic customers, ways to market subscription products, and the statistics you need to measure results. This books is perfect for entrepreneurs who are technology savvy and want to own a business that allows them to work from home while building a large, sustainable income. The Book’s Unique Quality (5:20) I think the nine subscription models are really easy for businesses to comprehend and apply to their business. We try to explain that no matter what business or industry you’re in you can apply one of these nine models to create some form of recurring revenue. The Best Way To Engage (6:00) This book has three major sections. The first section is dedicated to really making the case as to why you want recurring revenue. So if you already know that you absolutely want recurring revenue than you can skip section one and go straight to section two which is the nine subscription models. What these nine subscription models are going to do is help you think through all the different forms of recurring revenue that you might use in your business. And you can cherry-pick through those as you see one that is more relevant and less relevant. The final section is scaling up your subscription business which is all about the metrics you want. The Reader’s Takeaway (11:25) The LTV (Lifetime Value) to CAC (Customer Acquisition Cost) ratio is the most important metric any subscription company operator focuses on and we give you a formula on how to calculate it. A Deep Dive Into The Book (7:04) The key is to find some way to create some form of recurring revenue because that is going to both improve the value of your company as well as make your business a whole lot easier and more enjoyable to run. I believe that the essence of what we are trying to do can be encapsulated in a story I tell in the book. This story is about a guy named Sonu Panda who took a different approach to selling flowers. If you think about it a flower shop doesn’t have much hope unless it’s Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. In this business you constantly have to throw out rotten un-bought inventory because it simply wasn’t purchased which is a big waste of profit. Sonu Panda is trying to get you to think differently about what business you are in, even the low-tech business of selling flowers. So he tried to figure out who out there buys flowers on a recurring basis and realized that spas, restaurants, and hotels actually buy flowers relatively frequently. And so Sonu went to the individual establishments and negotiated with them on scheduling a time to bring fresh flowers every two weeks so that they could get back to the business or spa treatment etc. and not have to worry about whether their flowers are fresh. With that value proposition he started H. Bloom and today there are thousands and thousands of H. Bloom customers and subscribers around the world. So really the book is trying to convey that no matter what you do and no matter what business you are in you can rethink your business to create recurring revenue. NOTE: That was just a summary. To get the full deep dive, play the audio clip at 07:04 Notable Quotes From The Book (14:19) “Happiness bombs.” – Bark Box The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (1:51) I am the founder of something called The Value Builder System where we help business owners improve the value of their company. I found that business after I wrote the book Built To Sell a couple years ago. Most of the inspiration came from me screwing up writing Built To Sell. In Built to Sell I talked about the importance of making the business thrive without you personally doing all the work. The one thing that I didn’t spend enough time on was recurring revenue and it turns out that recurring revenue has the biggest impact on whether or not someone wants to buy your business. With The Automatic Customer I wanted to kind of write that wrong and really dedicate an entire book to how a business creates passive income and recurring revenue streams that are not necessarily reliant on the owner themselves.

Apple Steve Jobs The Crazy Ones - NEVER BEFORE AIRED 1997 - (Original Post)

Published on Fri, 18 Sep 2015 22:48:27

Steve Jobs narrates the first Think different commercial "Here's to the Crazy Ones". It never aired. Richard Dreyfuss did the voiceover for the original spot that aired. However Steve's is much better 1997. Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso. The young girl at the end is Shaan Sahota Steve Jobs' tribute. Richard Dreyfuss makes reference to this video. Amazingly cool. The link above was something I posted 2 years before Steve would pass on. I had the video for more than 10 years and I wanted to share it to evoke a good rhythm, a vibe of what it truly meant to be apart of Apple. What it meant to be Apple through Steve's eyes. The spirit above ALL ELSE rises to the top. It isn't the cash and it isn't the product. It is the passion that rules the day. I truly feel sorry for those who haven't experienced an Apple product yet. They are really missing out on something that is beyond words or magic. It is simply wonderful, because the people who put this together, bled six colors. If there is ever a true moment of transference of a soul, you can find it within this product that Steve graced with his touch. Magnificent. Brilliant. Happiness.

Greg McKeown: "Essentialism" | Talks at Google

Published on Fri, 4 Sep 2015 16:52:43

Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Do you sometimes feel overworked and underutilized? Does your day sometimes get hijacked by someone else's agenda?Have you ever said "yes" simply to please and then resented it? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. The Way of the Essentialist involves doing less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution. The Way of the Essentialist isn't about getting more done in less time. It's not about getting less done. It's about getting only the right things done. It's about challenging the core assumption of 'we can have it all' and 'I have to do everything' and replacing it with the pursuit of 'the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'. It's about regaining control of our own choices about where to spend our time and energies instead of giving others implicit permission to choose for us. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown draws on experience and insight from working with the leaders of the most innovative companies in the world to show how to achieve the disciplined pursuit of less. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Essentialism isn't one more thing; it is a different way of doing everything. It is a discipline you apply constantly, effortlessly. Essentialism is a mindset; a way of life. It is an idea whose time has come. Greg previously spoke at Google about "Multipliers".

From "Unleashing the Master Within" and "Delivering Jaw Dropping Moments" to "Sticking to the 18-minute Rule," Gallo provides a step-by-step method that makes it possible for anyone to create, design, and deliver a TED-style presentation that is engaging, persuasive, and memorable. Ideas are the true currency of the twenty first century, and Gallo gives readers a way to create presentations around the ideas that matter most to them, presentations that will energize their audiences to spread those ideas, launch new initiatives, and reach their highest goals.
