Good thinkers are always in demand. A person who knows how may always have a job, but the person who
knows why will always be his boss. Good thinkers solve problems, they never lack ideas that can build an
organization, and they always have hope for a better future.
Hi, I’m Tommy. I’m your success coach for the next 28 days. Born and reared in Ireland where I live with my wife Sandra, I have worked most of my life in the motor business. In 2009 I studied and qualified as a life coach because I wanted to improve my skills in motivating and coaching staff. I discovered a new profession that actually produces very positive results. In 2011, affected by the economic crisis, I wrapped up my motor business, and free time led me to look at life coaching along with my other skills to help me discover...
I was looking at Inco – a nickel-mining company – about a year ago. It had
outstanding numbers, including a low price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), big
margins, and a good cash flow. So – after doing my research into the
company’s growth strategy and management team – I recommended it to
It’s now up over 80%.
What did I know that other investors missed?
It’s pretty simple. I knew that mining companies are sometimes discounted
because their industry is so cyclical. What’s more, the price of the
commodities they extract can also be volatile.
As the commander in chief and highest political authority in Iran, the current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has played a critical role in the direction of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This has never been more true than during the tumultuous 2009 presidential elections, the outcome of which was determined by Khamenei’s decisive support of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Only two men have held the position of Supreme Leader since the Islamic Republic of Iran was established in 1979: Khamenei and his predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. As Khamenei ages and rumors of his ill...
The first part of the PhD published here provides a highly critical, richly theoretical and also controversial work. Its publication is not just in honour of Charlton Koen and the quality of his work, but is also likely to prove a path-breaker in our understanding of the complex web of factors that shape postgraduate student retention and success.
Pyle earned a bachelor’s degree in English in 1977 and a master’s degree in Linguistics in 1979. He has been involved in the field of English as a Second Language since he began work on his master’s degree in 1977.

He also wrote Cliffs Advanced Practice for the TOEFL in 1992. Although Mike no longer actively teaches for any institution, he periodically...
Perhaps no other “success” book has influenced more people
than Napoleon Hill’s Classic “Think and Grow Rich.” Since it’s
introduction in 1937, millions of copies have been sold around the
world. It still remains one of the top selling books of its kind.
Several months ago I came across an audiobook biography of
Hill and it was an eye-opening adventure into the life of a man
whose days were not the “smooth sailing” I had always assumed

It manifests itself in the shape of the lucky fool, defined as a person who benefited from a disproportionate share of luck but attribute his success to some other

Our Destiny in these Turbulent and Evolutionary Times
There was once a professor who wanted to go down a river, so he
approached a local boatman who agreed to row him downstream for a
small sum of money.
As they wound their way down the river, the professor decides to show
off his intelligence and high education so he started to test the simple
Herbert George Wells was born in 1866 in Bromley, England
into a family where there was little money to spare; his father ran
a small shop and played cricket professionally and his mother
worked as a housekeeper. The family's financial situation meant
that Wells had to work from the age of fourteen to support
himself through education. His success at school won him a free
place to study at a college of science in London, after which he
became a science teacher.
When my friend Mike Johnston asked me to write the foreword for this book, I
was happy to help. After all, it was his firm Hewitt & Johnston Consulting (now
HJC New Media) that got The NonProfit Times up and running on the Web many
When I started to read the manuscript, I couldn’t get an old Monty Python routine
out of my head. In a scene titled “The Miracle of Life” in the classic comedy
movie The Meaning Of Life, the doctors helping to deliver a baby were impressed
with “the machine that goes ping!” Of course, none of them knew what it actually
Randy’s dream has come true. An insurance underwriter for
the last four years, he can finally call himself a manager. His
boss recently told him, “You’ve worked hard, the agents like
you, and your results have been outstanding. So we’re going to
put you in charge of one of our underwriting units. Our hope is
you’ll teach your employees how you do it, and your success
will rub off on them.”
In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?
His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.
We conclude the Study Guide with a chapter called The Organized
Trader. A person who is serious about his success has to organize his
decision-making process and record-keeping. Questions in this chapter
deal with trading records such as the equity curve, trading spreadsheet,
and trader’s diary. They cover time management, setting priorities, and
rating your performance.
The charts in the Study Guide go beyond illustrating key analytic
points. Each comes with questions about what you would do at the right
We would like to dedicate this book to Dr. C. L.
Hwang. Through the course of his academic career,
Dr. Hwang researched and assessed an exhaustive list
of Multiple Attribute, Multiple Objective, and Group
Decision-Making techniques in both the crisp and
fuzzy environments, which are published in six of his
books. Dr. Hwang was an early pioneer in the field
of Decision Science and his contributions to this field
are still realized today in academia and at the heart of
this book. He introduced this area of study
to the authors who worked together with him
for a number of...
A researcher may be under the illusion that his research will sell itself more or less
automatically. On the contrary, it is the duty of an author to write an article so that an
outsider can understand the main points and the reasoning logic with relative ease. Your
article competes against other submitted article proposals. The decision on acceptance is
not done based only on the article substance, but the readability of the article also matters.
Consequently, an article must have a clear and logical structure combined with fluent
Moreover, nowhere in the passage does the author compare portraiture with other art forms. Choice (E) is too narrow and refers to information not mentioned in the passage. The passage is not just about Reynolds but about the portraiture encounter in general. Also, the author does not comment on Reynolds’ “success” or about how his relationship with his sitters might have contributed to his success.

On August 10, 1994 at about 3:30 in the afternoon, I was driving
to Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio. Our then 20-
year-old son, Kevin Michael O’Toole McHugh, was with me.
Highland Meadows was not a new experience for either of us.
Kevin had played there many times, including in junior golf tournaments.
His sisters, Kathy and Lisa, had both worked at the Club.
Kathy was the Club’s office manager for several years and Lisa
worked in the dining room and the office while going to college....
