Martin and Jordan have been extremely successful in their entrepreneurial careers, but through their wisdom and intelligence, have managed to do so without pushing themselves too hard.
I've read lots of self-help books, and many of them are poor and written by people who are just putting the same old ideas in another book. This is a business book with tips for living and working woven in.
There's three good reasons for buying this book:
1. The authors have actually been successful in their work. Hiring 100 people and have a turnover of 50 million a year is a great achievement for anyone.
2. The book is in nice, bite-size chapters. Lots of insights like: why change your to do list to a today list. Why ideas should not be kept secret. And many more.
3. Having met them, I can genuinely say they are nice people wanting to make a positive difference in the world. And you can feel that as you read their words.
What I liked most about the book is that it could have easily gone too far with what may seem like a hippie, unrealistic vibe, but instead it gives you a practical view of each of its 66 strategies. It's beyond "self help," and more like a buddy giving you a pep talk after a long day at work, reminding you of what really matters in life.
Another thing I noticed is that I find many business-related books to be skewed towards either a male or female reader--mostly by accident and sometimes based on which is writing it--but this felt universal in nearly every way. I'd recommend it to anyone from the budding entrepreneur starting out, to the most seasoned of veterans. MUST HAVE reading for your next flight.
Beyond its idealistic title, Winning Without Losing is packed with 66 inspiring short essays giving practical, actionable advice on how to build and lead a balanced life. The short essays include detailed examples of successful role models. The emphasis on examples is key to the book's credibility; helping readers embrace that it is actually possible to "have it all". But what is "all" anyway? The role models come from all paths of life and would make for an eclectic dinner party, but one thing they have in common is that they took the time to define what is important to them. If anything else, the main lesson I learned is: Define happiness first, then try to optimize your life to achieve your goals armed with these insights. The book is a handy cocktail of demonstrated tactics, choose the ones that better serve your purpose and fit your circumstances.
The authors created a non-prescriptive, inspiring read that is relevant to any professional. We are individually responsible for balancing our lives. Sadly, work/life balance is not only a neglected topic in most conventional organizations, but a seemingly contradictory goal in the race to the top. Winning Without Losing opens the door to discussing the possibility of being happy and accomplished. Evidence suggests it is possible!
I can honestly say that it has re-built my brain for a much healthier attitude to work and life and keeping them in a healthy balance.
I am now even more determined to succeed in my endeavours and I feel happy and Zen at the same time which had long eluded me.
Thanks Martin & Jordan
