Productivity Book Promotion #BeBetter

As an executive and productivity coach, it isn’t very uncommon to have a book published on productivity. This was my first ever book and my next book on Success Principles will be published later this year. Given we are all back after a long summer, a great long bank holiday weekend, it might just be the right time to kick-start your productivity habits. I have developed a 7 pillar framework which looks at – Defining what success actually means – Looking at your values and purpose – Defining the here and now and status quo – What do you want to achieve? – Define your stepping stones. – Plan your actions, as a plan is no good without actions – #BeBetter There is a lot more in the book, about trusted systems, healthy bodies, and spirits; it covers habits and routines, productivity tools and more. Let me know if you like the ideas or want to have a chat about the book or how this could be applied to your executives and teams. Best thing. The book is FREE to download from AMAZON this week! Promotion is on until Thursday.

Start practising today! Love and Kindness, Volker

We watch movies on a regular basis but normally a compromise between what I like to watch and what my wife likes to watch. She did something else on Sunday night, so I had the TV all to myself 🙂 Anyway, I got some relaxing times with the boys last weekend too which was good as the week prior to that had been busy. Monday I started back at work with a conference about mobile marketing. This then triggered a post about the state of the industry which will be published in March. We came a long way in the last three years. I have then been publishing those motivational quotes and put some on my own website. I am hooked on motivational quotes and videos that push you over the edge. Or at least they should. They should motivate you, show you the real tests in life and motivate you to do what you like to do. Even my wife got one as
