Yet all I have to do is read a couple pages of this book (or even a few paragraphs) and I'm willing to take on the world. Sometimes I read the same page a few times throughout the day and this gets me motivated to do whatever I need to do regardless if I feel like doing it or not. If this book cost fifty dollars it would still be a worthwhile investment. This is the bible of knowing how to get things done and I can't thank Mr Djukich enough for making this information available as well as affordable.
The book is about how people can build or train themselves to be much more effective in their personal and professional lives. This book is not just for CEO's or high level executives. Anyone wanting to be more effective and or solve a challenge will benefit immensely from this book if they apply the information.
There is a very useful chapter on "Stop Stopping." That's right many people in life stop before they get to their intended goals or objectives. The tools or "distinctions" as the author refers to them are effective in breaking through a lot of the self-sabotaging activities people engage in. I have been working with this material with my own staff at work and we have all found this material extremely useful in dealing with challenges that we have been struggling with for some time.
He then discusses what I believe to be a basic truth about human performance--that it's about our INNER game. Most of us don't need to learn more strategies, we need the right mindset to put what we already know into action.
The rest of the book sets down in a simple, straightforward way a number of "distinctions" used by the world's top performance coaches to help their clients move in a straight line to be more powerful and effective: Owner vs. Victim; Commitment vs. Trying; How To vs. Choose To...
As a performance coach, I have given this book to clients as a gift many times--not just to business leaders--but to professionals and sales professionals, as well. Virtually all of the concepts in it are used in my coaching and anyone who is not satisfied with his or her performance NEEDS to read this book.
Dusan Djukich masterfully takes you to the woodshed and puts YOU back in control, You are the one who is in charge of your life. You are the creator of your life. You can live a StraightLine Life!
The book StraightLine Leadership: Tools for Living With Velocity and Power in Turbulent Times - is like the Leatherman we all wish we had the guts to wear.
Open it up - Find the tools that apply, apply the tool, problem solved.
It is not so much that we are living are lives wrong - we just are not living them right.
The distinctions defined give us immediate compass corrections - "Do this to get that!"
It is refreshing to have brief results oriented advice to get from A to B.
It has been said - Read this book as if your life depended on it. It Does!
