Front Cover
BalboaPress, Feb 28, 2012 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 136 pages

As the last rays of the industrial age finally give way to the full force of the information age, a giant leap in the complexity and pace of daily life takes place despite the change-fatigue that has taken up residence in our corporations, businesses and homes. Tolerance levels are shifting to disallow energy-sapping step-by-step processes, moving toward accelerated growth through iteration and innovation. The result is that the change-plateau-change pattern of the past has morphed into unceasing transformation.

Social networking, reality media, and the masses of information at our fingertips offer a corresponding toolbox for all to use in rising to the challenge but theres a catch. For not only do we need to stretch even farther to learn the mechanics of these tools, they are so powerful that intense focus is required to apply them dynamically enough to reap their benefit.

This book offers professionals, business leaders, artists, entrepreneurs, parents, and students the mental shifts and soft skills required to make the leap to everyday transformation. It describes how best to approach and wield the new technology toolset and ultimately lights a path to flourishing in the new era of everything, all the time.
