In the business world there are sinkers, floaters, and swimmers. Sinkers are overwhelmed, overworked, overtired, and nearing a crisis or burnout. They keep trying to work harder (rather than smarter) and they are unaware of the physical and mental signs that they are one breath away from going under. Floaters are too often comfortably numb as they fail to realize that they have untapped potential, but they lack the energy and strategies to make it happen. They are just trying to stay afloat, to make it through today's meetings, this week's deadlines, or this quarter's goals.
But there is hope and there is a better way. There is a way to become a swimmer: someone who is full of energy and resilience, someone who had wiped away their brain fog and their fatigue and developed the strategies and habits to energize themselves, their teams, their organizations, and their brands. Sink, Float, or Swim teaches you how to become a swimmer.
Finally a book that really encourages us to think different. The writers lay out a very effective and above all practical approach to sustainable high performance in the corporate world. These are not just words. Implement their strategies and the results reveal themselves almost instantly to you and your team. I can not recommend this book enough. It is time we realize we have to take care of ourselves to thrive in the current business environment. Great find.
