Tools, tips and strategies to stop the cycle of 'busy' and start getting ahead

Stand Out shows you how to stop working so much, and start achieving instead. Everyone is busy, but working harder to do more isn't getting us anywhere. We're overwhelmed, distracted and detached, and our greatest fear is that this will never change. This book is your guide to taking back your life. Through simple models, robust diagnostics and practical suggestions you'll identify where you are now and how to implement real change. Explore how to move on from Check Out (the sense that you are just going through the motions), combat Burn Out (the feeling that you're on a treadmill that is dialled too fast for your legs, brain and talents to keep pace with) and move through Freak Out (that overriding anxiety generated by knowing where you want to go but not getting any traction). Real-life stories, anecdotes and ?life hacks' provide ideas you can implement immediately, while in-depth discussion of psychological theory explains the science behind the actions. The goal is not to find your One True Passion, but to identify what's most important right now. When you're clear on purpose and actually making progress, you hit the sweet spot of activity that allows your talents to shine.

The concept of 'being at work' has changed. We're expected to be plugged in 24/7, and continually expected to do more and more with the same 24 hours in every day. Organisations suffer, families suffer and workers suffer ? so why do we perpetuate this cycle? This book shows you how to hop off the hamster wheel and thrive through relentless change by doing less ? but by doing it smarter.

  • Treat self-care as an imperative for success
  • Connect to what's important here and now
  • Stop day-dreaming and put action to purpose
  • Take control of your day, your path and your life

It's not about productivity training or the latest organisational system ? it's about having the tools, mindset and skills in place to make your activities work for you. Stand Out helps you find the courage and optimism to live the life you crave, let go of the ?shoulds' and shows you how to prioritise what really matters.

          The only other book that I can compare this too is the 2007 publication of "The Four Hour Work Week" by Tim Ferriss. I remember how easy it was to keep turning the pages and wanting to know more about what Tim was talking about. "Stand Out" had me turning the pages the same way. For a book about life and success and passion and dealing with being busy, Alison is relatable, funny and keeps it simple. Alison Hill is the Tim Ferriss that I can relate to and I know I'll refer back again and again to this guide for practical and useful life habits.

            Comments about Stand Out:

            I am 8 months into a new business venture. I was running as fast as I could possibly go and whenever I got the chance to look up I would feel deflated at just how little progress I had made. I was burning the candle at both ends, I was overwhelmed, I was anxious about what to do next. Then I came across Stand Out. Through her humorous and genuine approach to writing, Alison made sense of the way I was feeling and provided challenges and inspiration to take back the control. This book is real, raw and confronting but so refreshing when you compare with others in the market. I know my personal journey is far from over so having this little gem on my book shelf means I can go back time and time again to bring me back to equilibrium.

              This is a super-practical guide for anyone who struggles with the busyness of success. The author's authentic voice speaks through to keep a conversational style that makes for easy reading, but the principles contain a grounded assuredness.
