According to John Eliot, Ph.D., Such self-improvement balderdash will do nothing but relegate you to a career in mediocrity.
As Dr. Eliot has discovered through his cutting-edge research and real-world coaching, techniques such as goal-setting, relaxation, visualization, stress management, and flow just don't work for most people. Relaxing when the pressure is on is the wrong way to go. Instead, to really ratchet up your performance, you'll need to change the way you think about pressureand learn how to welcome it, enjoy it, and make it work to your advantage.
Mixing scientific insights with entertaining and inspiring stories, Overachievement will help you achieve spectacular success in any situation that demands you rise above and beyond what you ever thought possible. BACKCOVER: The antithesis of every self-improvement guru.
