Up & Ahead: Use Strategy to Succeed in Life and Work by Sunny Bindra
Strategic thinking is an essential life skill that business leaders, entrepreneurs, and marketing strategists have mastered for business success. If you’re new to this way of thinking, you might feel bogged down with academic texts and esoteric theories. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Using decades of experience as a strategy advisor, Sunny Bindra delivers a simple and practical method for thinking about and applying strategy to your business and life in Up & Ahead. Written to deliver deep insights with an easy and natural light touch, without any unnecessary theory or jargon, Bindra’s book distills strategy into four manageable steps:
1. DIAGNOSE: What’s really going on in our world and what we need to become
2. POSITION: Where we choose to play and how we think we might win
3. INSPIRE: How we will explain this to our people and excite them with it
4. ACT: The concerted action sets we need to make this strategy happen
Even if you have learned strategy formally, Up & Ahead will help you unlearn all that was unnecessary, so that the necessary can take prominence.

Deep work By Cal NewportKSh2,650.00Read more
Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life – the ability to master distraction.
Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves your attention the most.
When Cal Newport coined the term ‘deep work’ on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve. Most of us, after all, are excruciatingly familiar with shallow work instead – distractedly skimming the surface of our workload and never getting to the important part. Newport began exploring the methods and mindset that foster a practice of distraction-free productivity at work, and now, in DEEP WORK, he shows how anyone can achieve this elusive state.

Promise me, Dad;Joe BidenKSh1,390.00Add to cart
In November 2014, thirteen members of the Biden family gathered for their traditional Thanksgiving celebration. But this year felt different from previous. Joe and Jill Biden’s eldest son, Beau, had been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour fifteen months earlier, and his survival was uncertain. ‘Promise me, Dad,’ Beau had told his father. ‘Give me your word that no matter what happens, you’re going to be all right.’ Joe Biden gave him his word.
Promise Me, DadÂ chronicles the year that followed, which would be the most momentous and challenging in Joe Biden’s extraordinary life and career. Vice President Biden travelled more than a hundred thousand miles that year, across the world, dealing with crises in Ukraine, Central America and Iraq. While Beau fought for, and then lost his life, the Vice President balanced the twin imperatives of living up to his responsibilities to his country and his responsibilities to his family, while contemplating the insistent and urgent question of whether he should seek the presidency in 2016. Even in the worst times, Biden was able to lean on the strength of his long, deep bonds with his family, on his faith, and on his deepening friendship with the man in the Oval Office, Barack Obama.
The Merchant of venice; William ShakespeareKSh1,250.00Add to cart
In The Merchant of Venice, the path to marriage is hazardous. To win Portia, Bassanio must pass a test prescribed by her father’s will, choosing correctly among three caskets or chests. If he fails, he may never marry at all.
Bassanio and Portia also face a magnificent villain, the moneylender Shylock. In creating Shylock, Shakespeare seems to have shared in a widespread prejudice against Jews. Shylock would have been regarded as a villain because he was a Jew. Yet he gives such powerful expression to his alienation due to the hatred around him that, in many productions, he emerges as the hero.
Portia is most remembered for her disguise as a lawyer, Balthazar, especially the speech in which she urges Shylock to show mercy that “droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven.”
