The hidden patterns behind the way we make decisions Several recent books, from Blink to Freakonomics to Predictably Irrational, have examined how people make choices. But none explain why different people have such different styles of decision making—and why those styles seem consistent across many contexts. For instance, why is a gambler always a gambler, whether at work, on the highway, or in a voting booth? Scott de Marchi and James T. Hamilton present a new theory about how we decide, based on an extensive survey of more than thirty thousand subjects. They show that each of us possesses six core traits that shape every decision, from what to have for lunch to where to invest. We go with “the usual” way of deciding whenever there’s a trade-off between current and future happiness, when facing the risk of a bad outcome, or when a choice might hurt other people. We’re also consistent about how much information we want and how much we care about the opinions of others. Readers can determine their own decision-making profile with a test in the book. Once they understand the six core traits, they’ll have a big advantage in their marketing campaigns, management strategies, investments, and many other contexts.

You are what you love. But you might not love what you think. In this book, award-winning author James K. A. Smith shows that who and what we worship fundamentally shape our hearts. And while we desire to shape culture, we are not often aware of how culture shapes us. We might not realize the ways our hearts are being taught to love rival gods instead of the One for whom we were made. Smith helps readers recognize the formative power of culture and the transformative possibilities of Christian practices. He explains that worship is the "imagination station" that incubates our loves and longings so that our cultural endeavors are indexed toward God and his kingdom. This is why the church and worshiping in a local community of believers should be the hub and heart of Christian formation and discipleship. Following the publication of his influential work Desiring the Kingdom, Smith received numerous requests from pastors and leaders for a more accessible version of that book's content. No mere abridgment, this new book draws on years of Smith's popular presentations on the ideas in Desiring the Kingdom to offer a fresh, bottom-up rearticulation. The author creatively uses film, literature, and music illustrations to engage readers and includes new material on marriage, family, youth ministry, and faith and work. He also suggests individual and communal practices for shaping the Christian life.

Seven salient points I want you to know and write in the marble of your heart: Nothing just happens. Anything good or bad happening to you is for a purpose; you were born in riches or a rag for a purpose. If you can identify with that purpose, you will surely make your dreams a reality. It is not what the enemy is doing to you that is killing you; not the society you are in; not the promises some politicians, relatives and associates fail to keep; not the family and community you came from; it is what you have failed to do with yourself that is killing you. Life failure is not the absence of opportunities but the absence of vision. You will create whatever opportunities you want in life when you have a vision; that is why you shouldn’t fight your way to be in the presence of great men; rather identify your gift, and when you do, it will make a way for you and bring you before great men. If God can trust you, He will increase your capacity to receive more from him. And one of the reasons you are in the struggle and things don’t seem to be working to your favor is because you have not earned God’s trust. A man with a vision struggles less than a man without a vision to pursue; goals to attain and targets to achieve. Conceive your vision today and pursue it diligently, because if you don’t, other people will hire you to pursue theirs. God never created anybody useless; if He knows you are useless, why would He spend his resources to create you? Your limitation is not entirely your situation, but your understanding of who you are. Biology is studied based on its definition; same applies to life. Your life is what you define it to be. It would have been better if you were aborted at conception than to live through life not achieving your purpose. Whom should I cry for, the fellow who died untimely or the fellow that is alive and without a purpose?

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.
