The Universe Doesn't Give a Flying Fuck About You (Epic series Book 1)

If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this.

If you have a "next big thing" in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this.

The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine.

The universe doesn't hate you, but it doesn't love you, either. You're just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn't care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you.

Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

I Will Teach You Excel: Master Excel, surpass your co-workers, and impress your boss!

Ever get passed up for a promotion or pay increase and wonder, "why didn't I get it"? Ever wonder if your skills are good enough to compete in today's crowded job market? You work hard, go above and beyond and still can't seem to get noticed. Many of today's jobs require that you be familiar with Microsoft Excel. How can you become proficient at Excel when companies aren't willing to teach you this valuable skill?

This leaves many people trying to learn as they go and never quite feeling 100% comfortable with the program. What's worse, most people haven't even scratched the surface of Excel's potential, even if they've been using it for years. If you feel this way, you're not alone.

Think about this for a second; what will your career look like in a year if you don't take action today and improve your Excel skills? How about five years from now? Unless you take matters into your own hands things may not look much different.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, people who show proficiency in Microsoft Excel and other common office applications earn, on average, 13% more than those who don't. For most people this could mean tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years, and this doesn't even factor in lost promotions and job offers. Can you afford to leave so much on the table as a result of maintaining the status quo?

I've experienced this transformation in my career and can tell you first hand how it has helped me. When I was fresh out of college and working my first accounting job my manager asked me to complete a project that involved using VLOOKUPS. I enthusiastically obliged, walked back to my desk, and proceeded to panic. I tricked myself into thinking that I was an excel expert only because I knew a few formulas, my limited knowledge only scratched the surface. I turned to a college buddy for help; Google. I eventually managed to learn what I needed, after a lot of time and energy.

I've climbed the ladder and worn many hats since then. I can't say that the opportunities I've earned in my career are solely due to my increasing Excel proficiency. What I can definitely say is that Excel has earned me more opportunities to prove myself to management than waiting for opportunities to materialize on their own.

That's why I decided to write this book. My goal is to take you from Excel novice to master in the shortest time possible. I wrote my book specifically for the busy professional, in an easy to read manner that gets straight to the point and teaches the meat of Excel. I wrote this book for you.

>

I have helped many people improve their careers through Excel and now it's your turn. Here is what you get when you download my book:

-18 chapters of the most useful Excel techniques that will immediately take your skills to the next level

-Practical use cases plus downloadable workbooks so that you can take what you learn and feel, first hand, how to apply those skills to real world scenarios

-A FREE copy of my latest book on Google Sheets so you can stay ahead of the curve

You're at the point of decision. You can either continue down the path of least resistance, the path you have already been traveling, or you can choose the road less traveled. The path of least resistance will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you've always received.

But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your career you're going to have to do something different. Make a choice now, pursue new outcomes.

Content Marketing Strategy Guide: Your Formula For Achieving Success Across Social Media, PR and SEO

I looked at all the other books on content marketing and they were filled with history lessons and industry charts and all sorts of fluff.

I've been told it's funny too. Why must business books be so dull?

Napoleon Hill's Awesome Secret (Wealth Book 1)

Napoleon Hill's early career was as a newspaper reporter, during which time he met and interviewed the wealthy entrepreneur Andrew Carnegie who issued him with a challenge. Carnegie (the richest man in the world at the time) commissioned Hill to interview 500 extremely successful men and, from the experience, distil the secret of success into a simple workable formula.

He accepted the challenge and the resulting book - Think and Grow Rich - took him 20 years to produce. This book has sold more than thirty million copies worldwide and been responsible for creating more millionaires than any other philosophy of achievement. In Will Edwards' book Napoleon Hill's Awesome Secret, his 'secret' for creating wealth is outlined in a simple 7-step formula that anyone can apply to create abundance.

You are dying, and your world is a lie (Epic series Book 2)

What is pain? What is discomfort? Is it something terrible, something to be avoided... or is it the very thing that lets us know that we are alive?

The modern world has sold us on a lie. The lie says that to live is to be comfortable. To live is to be free of struggle. The lie says that the ultimate existence would be to never want for anything, to never be pushed so far that it hurts. So why do some of us seek out "edge" experiences? Why do we flirt with deprivation, with intentional chaos? Why do some of us push toward and through our own physical, emotional, and emotional limits, just to see how it feels?

Every day, safe in our modern cocoons, we can comfortably ignore the fact we are dying. But should we blind ourselves to the truth? Beyond self-help cliches lies a painful and sobering reality: YOUR TIME IN THIS LIFE IS LIMITED... AND IT IS RUNNING OUT.

This essay looks at what it is to strive, to seek out what hurts us so that we may find out what it is to truly be human.

Disobey (Epic series Book 3)

We've been handed a world that was created by others, shaped by their thoughts and actions, and told that this is the way things must be.

We've been given a set of rules that are at root only opinions of the majority, and have been told that these are objectively, morally correct, immutable truths.

We've been sat down to play a game that is rigged -- a game that, even if we win, gives us something other than what we believed we would receive in victory.

And if we don't begin to consciously question the rules of our world and to look closely at the game we're unwittingly playing, then we will never get what we want.

It's time to look. Assess. Investigate. Choose. And, where appropriate, to disobey.

This essay follows the author's path from a life of "good kid" conformity in youth to his present-day decisions to start his own business, "unschool" his children, and to give up on what is not working. It's his manifesto of freedom and of conscious choice, and it can be yours, too.

If life is not what you wanted or expected it to be, this essay will help you to become more. To question norms. To disobey.

Money God’s Way: Rich or Poor It’s Up To You

Money is the second most discussed topic in the Bible. Therefore, it must be important. You need to know how to handle money the way God wants you to handle money.

God knows that money is something that has a lot of power here in this fallen world. This is why He spends so much time telling you how to properly manage it.

Listen to God and learn all you can about money. However, don't simply learn from sources of this world. No, learn from the Bible. It is the best guide to money you will ever find.

This devotion will show you what the Bible says about money and how you can properly manage it. Money flows from the hands of those who don't manage it to the hands of those who do. It goes from the fools to the wise.

It's time for you to become wise with your money and manage money God's way. Remember, if Christians don't take control of their money then it will flow into other hands - into the hands of the non-Christians.

Do you want the non-Christians to have that power and influence? Money can accomplish a lot of good or a lot of evil depending on who has it. Therefore, work hard to learn what God wants you to do with your money.

Graphs Don’t Lie: How to Lie with Graphs and Get Away With It… (Bite-Size Stats Series Book 2)

Sarah Palin, abortions, global warming and Usain Bolt. The CEO of Apple, 35 trillion gun deaths in 1995, Fox News and 193%. This book has got scandals galore!

With 9 witty chapters taking you on a roller coaster tour of graphical lies, pictorial deceits and pie charts of mayhem, this might just be the most entertaining book about graphs you'll read this year.

Did you know that between them, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney enjoyed a total of 193% support from Republican candidates in the 2012 US primaries? It must be true - it was on a pie chart broadcast on Fox News. Did you also know that the number 34 is smaller than 14, and zero is much bigger than 22? Honest, it's true, it was published in a respectable national newspaper after the 2017 UK General Election. There can't have been any kind of misdirection here because they were all shown on a pie chart.

In this astonishing book, award winning statistician and author Lee Baker uncovers how politicians, the press, corporations and other statistical conmen use graphs and charts to deceive their unwitting audience. Like how a shocking, and yet seemingly innocuous statement as "Every year since 1950, the number of children gunned down has doubled", meant that there should have been at least 35 trillion gun deaths in 1995 alone, the year the quote was printed in a reputable journal. Or how an anti-abortion group made their point by trying to convince us all that 327,000 is actually a larger number than 935,573. Nice try, but no cigar - we weren't born yesterday.

In his trademark sardonic style, the author reveals the secrets of how the statistical hustlers use graphs and charts to manipulate and misrepresent for political or commercial gain - and often get away with it.

Written as a layman's guide to lying, cheating and deceiving with graphs, there's not a dull page in sight! And it's got elephants in it too...

Discover the exciting world of lying with graphs and charts. Get this book, TODAY!

Twitter Marketing In Combination With Your Social Media Strategy For Business

Use The Power of Twitter To Attract Customers

Maybe you just don't know how to get started on Twitter, or what to do once you have. I've put this book together to give you some actionable, powerful tips to make the most out of marketing and selling on Twitter. I'm going to show you how to build a great profile, connect with your customers, participate in the community, find opportunities to branch out, and network effectively.

In the first chapter, "Build Your Profile", I'll be teaching you about what it takes to make a proper Twitter profile, and giving you some examples that I consider to be very well done. Every facet of building a profile from choosing your avatar to setting backgrounds and colors will be covered here, as well as techniques to make a proper introduction.

In Chapter 2, "Link Up!", you'll learn about connecting various services, maximizing your exposure. Methods for (sanely) working around the 140 character limit will be discussed, along with tips to leverage pre-existing connections. I'll also give you some quick and easy tips about tweet construction to lead customers to your product pages, and introduce the concept of "retweeting"-- something that seems simple, but can be an extraordinarily powerful tool.

Chapter 3, "Find Your Peers", might be the most important chapter in this book for a business owner just starting out. Inside, I lay out the concrete, proven process to finding and keeping connections with both your fellow business owners and your customers. I'll be covering the unique ways that Twitter enables businesses to interact with their customers, as well as cross-company promotion opportunities.

The fourth chapter is just as important in my opinion, though. "Meaningful Interaction" is about exactly what it seems to be-- interacting with Twitter users in a relevant, reasonable, and exciting way. I'll go more in-depth about the various functions of the platform, including the retweet, @, and direct message. I'll also be talking about the importance of tone on Twitter, and how to avoid nasty pitfalls that could damage your brand and thereby your chances at success.

The points contained in Chapter 5, "Market Effectively", are a little more broad than those in other chapters (with one exception). I'll be talking a little more generally about what makes a good marketing strategy, and how those lessons can be applied on Twitter specifically. The one Twitter-exclusive point deals with promoting your tweets, but many platforms have an equivalent function.

In this book you'll learn:

Everything you need to know about creating a powerful profile

Important things to remember when creating your Twitter handle

What type of photo and background to use for your profile

Why proper introduction helps you get followers quickly

Cross promotion between various social media platforms

Correctly using built-in link shortener to promote your products or services

Why a blogpost account can help you Twitter account

Leveraging your existing contacts and power of retweets

How to find your target customers

A solid under utilized way to find new potential customers

How karma works on Twitter

And much much more

How to Think Bigger: Aim Higher, Get More Motivated, and Accomplish Big Things

How to Get More Motivated, Set Bigger Goals, and Achieve More by Thinking Bigger Have you ever wondered what separates people who think bigger from people who set their bar low? What makes one person accept low standards and another person to constantly raise them? Why does one person strive to build an international organization affecting the lives of millions of people, while another person is content working her entire life as a clerk? (Not that there's anything wrong with being a clerk!) Why is one person challenging herself to run marathons, train her body and get fitter, while another is happy living a sedentary, unhealthy lifestyle? What drives a person who's optimizing every single aspect of her life and what causes another person to maintain the status quo? You can say, "Well, the answer is simple enough - one person is ambitious, while the other one is not." But what exactly causes it? And most importantly - how do you become more ambitious and think bigger? Is it something you're born with and can't change, or is it something over which you have control? I found this topic so fascinating I decided to find out the answer for myself and write a book about it. This book is the result of my research about people who think big and the science of being more ambitious. Here are just some of the things you will learn from the book: - What key things you need to inspire yourself to think bigger, and more importantly, achieve your big goals. - Why you need a "why," and what kind of motivators will set you up for success (hint: attaining money or status are some of the least motivating goals possible). - The single most important thing to thinking bigger. If you don't have it in your life, you will sabotage your efforts - guaranteed. - What the chimp is and why you need to learn how to control it to get yourself motivated and work on your big goals. You can be making things hard for yourself without being aware of it. - How to cultivate the art of strategic laziness

Enabling Things to Talk: Designing Iot Solutions with the Iot Architectural Reference Model

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging network superstructure that will connect physical resources and actual users. It will support an ecosystem of smart applications and services bringing hyper-connectivity to our society by using augmented and rich interfaces. Whereas in the beginning IoT referred to the advent of barcodes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which helped to automate inventory, tracking and basic identification, today IoT is characterized by a dynamic trend toward connecting smart sensors, objects, devices, data and applications. The next step will be "cognitive IoT," facilitating object and data re-use across application domains and leveraging hyper-connectivity, interoperability solutions and semantically enriched information distribution. The Architectural Reference Model (ARM), presented in this book by the members of the IoT-A project team driving this harmonization effort, makes it possible to connect vertically closed systems, architectures and application areas so as to create open interoperable systems and integrated environments and platforms. It constitutes a foundation from which software companies can capitalize on the benefits of developing consumer-oriented platforms including hardware, software and services. The material is structured in two parts. Part A introduces the general concepts developed for and applied in the ARM. It is aimed at end users who want to use IoT technologies, managers interested in understanding the opportunities generated by these novel technologies, and system architects who are interested in an overview of the underlying basic models. It also includes several case studies to illustrate how the ARM has been used in real-life scenarios. Part B then addresses the topic at a more detailed technical level and is targeted at readers with a more scientific or technical background. It provides in-depth guidance on the ARM, including a detailed description of a process for generating concrete archit

Protecting the Rights of People with Autism in the Fields of Education and Employment: International, European and National Perspectives

Fundamental rights for all people with disabilities, education and employment are key for the inclusion of people with autism. They play as facilitators for the social inclusion of persons with autism and as multipliers for their enjoyment of other fundamental rights. After outlining the international and European dimensions of the legal protection of the rights to education and employment of people with autism, the book provides an in-depth analysis of domestic legislative, judicial and administrative practice of the EU Member States in these fields. Each chapter identifies the good practices on inclusive education and employment of people with autism consistent with principles and obligations enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Articles 24 and 27). The book contains the scientific results of the European Project "Promoting equal rights of people with autism in the field of employment and education" aimed at supporting the implementation of the UN Convention in the fields of inclusive education and employment.

The Arab Spring Five Years Later, Volume 1: Toward Greater Inclusiveness

The dilemma felt particularly by Arab youth was captured in Tunisia by the self-immolation in 2010 of Mohamed Bouazizi, who was frustrated by restrictions on his small street-vending business. Bouazizi's death became the catalyst that seemed to light up revolts throughout the Middle East. The frustration had been building for some time: large segments of society were denied economic progress, while the middle class was squeezed, and governments had cut back on services and public employment. Since the series of uprisings began, the debate in Arab countries has focused almost exclusively on politics and questions of national identity. In fact, economic issues are driving the agenda, and real economic grievances must be addressed in order for the many transitions to succeed. Ghanem gives a thorough assessment of the Arab Spring, beginning with political developments since the revolutions and changes in the legal and institutional frameworks that affect economies. Arab economies grew at healthy rates before the revolts, but the benefits of economic growth were unfairly distributed. The politically connected reaped great benefits, while educated youth could not find decent jobs, and the poor and middle class struggled to make ends meet. Ghanem advises that Arab countries need to adopt new economic policies and programs that enhance inclusiveness, expand the middle class, and foster growth in undeveloped regions. Key elements include strengthening economic institutions, developing small businesses, reforming the education system to better prepare Arab youth for the modern labor market, promoting gender equality with the objective of raising female labor market participation rates, and setting up programs for rural and regional development to reduce inequality and eliminate extreme poverty.

The Onlife Manifesto: Being Human in a Hyperconnected Era

What is the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on the human condition? In order to address this question, in 2012 the European Commission organized a research project entitled The Onlife Initiative: concept reengineering for rethinking societal concerns in the digital transition. This volume collects the work of the Onlife Initiative. It explores how the development and widespread use of ICTs have a radical impact on the human condition. ICTs are not mere tools but rather social forces that are increasingly affecting our self-conception (who we are), our mutual interactions (how we socialise); our conception of reality (our metaphysics); and our interactions with reality (our agency). In each case, ICTs have a huge ethical, legal, and political significance, yet one with which we have begun to come to terms only recently. The impact exercised by ICTs is due to at least four major transformations: the blurring of the distinction between reality and virtuality; the blurring of the distinction between human, machine and nature; the reversal from information scarcity to information abundance; and the shift from the primacy of stand-alone things, properties, and binary relations, to the primacy of interactions, processes and networks. Such transformations are testing the foundations of our conceptual frameworks. Our current conceptual toolbox is no longer fitted to address new ICT-related challenges. This is not only a problem in itself. It is also a risk, because the lack of a clear understanding of our present time may easily lead to negative projections about the future. The goal of The Manifesto, and of the whole book that contextualises, is therefore that of contributing to the update of our philosophy. It is a constructive goal. The book is meant to be a positive contribution to rethinking the philosophy on which policies are built in a hyperconnected world, so that we may have a better chance of understanding our ICT-related problems an

Poverty Reduction Policies and Practices in Developing Asia (Economic Studies in Inequality, Social Exclusion and Well-Being)

This book looks at the major policy challenges facing developing Asia and how the region sustains rapid economic growth to reduce multidimensional poverty through socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable measures. Asia is facing many challenges arising from population growth, rapid urbanization, provision of services, climate change and the need to redress declining growth after the global financial crisis. This book examines poverty and related issues and aims to advance the development of new tools and measurement of multidimensional poverty and poverty reduction policy analysis. The book covers a wide range of issues, including determinants and causes of poverty and its changes; consequences and impacts of poverty on human capital formation, growth and consumption; assessment of poverty strategies and policies; the role of government, NGOs and other institutions in poverty reduction; rural-urban migration and poverty; vulnerability to poverty; breakdown of poverty into chronic and transitory components; and a comparative study on poverty issues in Asia and other regions. The book will appeal to all those interested in economic development, resources, policies and economic welfare and growth.

The Economic Consequences of the Gulf War

The Iran-Iraq War were one of the longest and most devastating uninterrupted wars amongst modern nation states. It produced neither victor nor vanquished and left the regimes in both countries basically intact. However, it is clear that the domestic, regional and international repercussions of the war mean that 'going back' is not an option. Iraq owes too much to regain the lead it formerly held in economic performance and development levels. What then does reconstruction mean? In this book, Kamran Mofid counteracts the scant analysis to date of the economic consequences of the Gulf War by analysing its impact on both economies in terms of oil production, exports, foreign exchange earnings, non-defence foreign trade and agricultural performance. In the final section, Mofid brings together the component parts of the economic cost of the war to assign a dollar value to the devastation.

Manifesto of the New Economy: Institutions and Business Models of the Digital Society

The book describes the main directions for the development of the digital society. The author angles its book to those who are interested to know what would replace search engines, and how social networks would evolve; what profit can be made of different forms of informational collaboration (crowdsourcing, collaborative filtering). And, the main thing, how it will influence the structure of the society and human pursuit for happiness. The author does not confine himself to a theory, he sets and solves practical questions: How talent, success and "stardom" are interconnected, how to make money in social networks, what is the business model for the development of entertainment and media, how to measure cultural values, and what is the subjective time of the individual and how to make it qualitative? There have been no answers to these questions before. Internet and social networks have provided tools and data that Alexander Dolgin was the first to use in economics.

Innovations in Quantitative Risk Management: TU München, September 2013 (Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics)

Quantitative models are omnipresent -but often controversially discussed- in todays risk management practice. New regulations, innovative financial products, and advances in valuation techniques provide a continuous flow of challenging problems for financial engineers and risk managers alike. Designing a sound stochastic model requires finding a careful balance between parsimonious model assumptions, mathematical viability, and interpretability of the output. Moreover, data requirements and the end-user training are to be considered as well. The KPMG Center of Excellence in Risk Management conference Risk Management Reloaded and this proceedings volume contribute to bridging the gap between academia -providing methodological advances- and practice -having a firm understanding of the economic conditions in which a given model is used. Discussed fields of application range from asset management, credit risk, and energy to risk management issues in insurance. Methodologically, dependence modeling, multiple-curve interest rate-models, and model risk are addressed. Finally, regulatory developments and possible limits of mathematical modeling are discussed.

S-BPM Illustrated: A Storybook about Business Process Modeling and Execution

S-BPM stands for "subject-oriented business process management" and focuses on subjects that represent the entities (people, programs etc.) that are actively engaged in processes. S-BPM has become one of the most widely discussed approaches for process professionals. Its potential particularly lies in the integration of advanced information technology with organizational and managerial methods to foster and leverage business innovation, operational excellence and intra- and inter-organizational collaboration. Thus S-BPM can also be understood as a stakeholder-oriented and social business process management methodology. In this book, the authors show how S-BPM and its tools can be used in order to solve communication and synchronization problems involving humans and/or machines in an organization. All the activities needed in order to implement a business process are shown step by step; it starts by analyzing the problem, continues with modeling and validating the corresponding process, and finishes off by embedding the process into the organization. The final result is a workflow that executes the process without the need for any programming. To this end, in the first step a very simple process is implemented, which is subsequently extended and improved in "adaption projects," because additional problems have to be solved. This approach reflects the organizational reality, in which processes must always be changed and adapted to new requirements. This is a hands-on book, written by professionals for professionals, with a clear and concise style, a wealth of illustrations (as the title suggests), and focusing on an ongoing example with a real industrial background. Readers who want to execute all the steps by themselves can simply download the S-BPM tool suite from the www.i2pm.net website.

Society - Water - Technology: A Critical Appraisal of Major Water Engineering Projects (Water Resources Development and Management)

This book presents the results of the Interdisciplinary Research Group "Society - Water - Technology" of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. It describes interdisciplinary evaluation criteria for major water engineering projects (MWEPs) and portrays an application to the Lower Jordan Valley (Middle East) and the Fergana Valley (Central Asia). Both areas are characterised by transboundary conflicts, by challenges due to demographic and climate change and by political and societal pressures. Based on the findings, the book provides recommendations for science and political decisions makers as well as for international financing institutions. In addition, it outlines research gaps from an interdisciplinary perspective. In the past, MWEPs have been used as an instrument to cope with the demands of growing populations and to enhance development progress. Experiences with MWEPs have shown that a purely technical approach has not always brought about the desired results. In many cases, MWEPs have even resulted in negative implications for society and environment. Therefore, improved management strategies and enhanced technologies for a sustainable water resource management system are a prerequisite to meet present and future challenges. And, moreover, the continuous evaluation and optimisation of these measures is, likewise, a must.
