Die subtile Kunst des darauf Schei ens

Author: Mark Manson
Publisher: MVG Verlag
ISBN: 9783961210596
Release Date: 2017-05-08
Genre: Self-Help

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.

Immortal Words

Author: Terry Breverton
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9780857383099
Release Date: 2012-03-29
Genre: History

Immortal Last Words is a fascinating, diverse collection of history's most uplifting, entertaining and thought-provoking dying remarks and final farewells. The 370 entries in this book have been drawn from some of history's greatest statesmen, poets, scientists, novelists and warriors - the eminent men and women who have shaped events over the last four and a half millennia and whose final recorded words have often inspired great deeds or shed light on the nature of the human condition. There are also entries are from less well- known individuals who did not make such an impact on history but whose dying words are equally noteworthy as they encapsulate the spirit of the times or simply reflect the character of the speaker. And finally, the pages of this book contain the last words of some of most ignoble personalities in history - the monsters and maniacs whose final defiant utterances prompt us to reflect on the nature of evil and man's inhumanity to man. Arranged chronologically from antiquity to the present day, each entry is accompanied by contextual information giving a brief biography of the author and an explanation of the circumstances that gave rise to the quotation. Some of the sentiments expressed are unbelievably sad while others are optimistic; some final words have become famous while others have remained obscure, but all reflect the follies and greatness of mankind - its heroes and villains, war and peace and the absolute power of language to change our feelings and challenge our minds. Sample entries include: Buddha 'Strive for your own liberation with diligence'; Vespasian 'Dear me, I believe I am becoming a god'; Thomas Hobbes, 'I am about to take my last voyage, a great leap in the dark'; Robespierre 'Death is the commencement of immortality!'; George Washington'Tis well'; John Keats 'Here lies one whose name was writ in water'; John Maynard Keynes'I should have drunk more champagne'; Salvador Dalí 'I do not believe in my death'; Keith Floyd 'I've not felt this well for ages.'

Master the Art of Presentations Collection

Author: Jerry Weissman
Publisher: FT Press
ISBN: 9780133739930
Release Date: 2013-08-19
Genre: Business & Economics

World-renowned presentation coach Jerry Weissman has spent 20 years helping top executives succeed in the most important business presentations of their lives. Here’s what he’s learned: the best way to get his message across is to show his techniques in action. In Presentation in Action , Weissman does just that: he teaches how to make spectacularly successful presentations by showing exactly how great presenters have done it. Weissman dives into his library of outstanding presentations, sharing examples from current events, politics, science, art, music, literature, cinema, media, sports, and even the military. His compelling examples don’t just demonstrate what’s universal about effective human communication: they also reveal powerful ways to solve the specific challenges presenters encounter most often. This book’s five sections focus on each element of the outstanding contemporary presentation: Content: Mastering the art of telling your story; Graphics: Designing PowerPoint slides that work brilliantly; Delivery skills: How to make actions speak louder than words; Q+A: How to handle tough questions; Integration: How to put it all together. Now, in Winning Strategies for Power Presentations, Weissman identifies the elements of a great presentation, distilling 75 best practices from the world's best persuaders into bite-sized chapters designed to be easy-to-read -- and equally easy to apply. Following on the heels of Weissman's best-selling Presentations in Action, this book presents powerful new insights into the four key areas of delivering winning presentations: contents, graphics, delivery, and Q-and-A sessions. Throughout, Weissman's compelling case studies range from Jon Stewart to venture capitalist John Doerr, Stephen King to Mark Twain, Franklin Delano Roosevelt to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. Weissman also includes brand-new advice on a wide spectrum of "special presentation" issues, ranging from developing a richer public speaking voice to delivering scripted speeches, interviewing like a TV anchorperson to demonstrating products more successfully.

Ein autobiographisches Meisterwerk von Patti Smith, Ikone der Punk-Bewegung, Dichterin und Ausnahmekünstlerin Patti Smith führt uns in das New York der frühen Siebzigerjahre, in eine Ära, die für sie vor allem von der tiefen Freundschaft zu einem Menschen geprägt wird: dem später zu Weltruhm gelangten Fotografen Robert Mapplethorpe. Just Kids erzählt die bewegende Geschichte zweier Seelenverwandter, die für und durch die Kunst leben, und entwirft zugleich ein betörendes Bild einer revolutionären Epoche.Als Patti Smith und Robert Mapplethorpe sich im Sommer 1967 in New York kennenlernen, sind sie beide 20 und ohne einen Pfennig in der Tasche auf der Suche nach einem freien Leben als Künstler. Eine intensive Liebesgeschichte beginnt, die später in eine tiefe Freundschaft übergeht. Von Brooklyn ziehen sie ins Chelsea Hotel, wo Patti Smith Bekanntschaft macht mit Janis Joplin, Allen Ginsberg, Sam Shepard, Todd Rundgren, Tom Verlaine und vielen anderen Künstlern. Patti Smith taucht ein in die Welt der Rockmusik und wird zu einer der einflussreichsten und stilprägendsten Künstlerinnen des Jahrzehnts. Auch wenn sich ihre Wege zwischendurch trennen, bleiben Patti und Robert bis zu dessen Tod im Jahr 1989 eng verbunden.Just Kids, halb Elegie, halb Romanze, entwirft ein so noch nicht gesehenes Bild einer aufregenden Epoche und besticht durch die Offenheit, Wärme, den feinen Humor und die große sprachliche Kraft, mit der Patti Smith erzählt. Radikal, zärtlich und unverwechselbar eigen ist hier die Künstlerin Patti Smith als Schriftstellerin zu entdecken.Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen aus dem Privatarchiv von Patti Smith und Robert Mapplethorpe
