Now Martin is back to shed some light on the concept of pressure. As he explains, pressure is neither good nor bad. It's a neutral force that can either cause you stress and failure or that can be harnessed for greater happiness, productivity, creativity, and purpose. One of the key components of ultra high achievers is their healthy relationship to pressure. They learn how to use it, when to use it, how to apply it to themselves and the people around them. While the underlying principle is easy to understand, it's the plethora of useful examples and techniques that make this book immediately actionable. Quick, fun read. You'll be nodding your head from beginning to end, and find yourself inspired and excited to bring pressure into your life more consciously and constructively. Highly recommend.
