On the Back Cover
"The ability to get greater results and preserve well-being amidst change and challenge is the defining skill set of our times. Read this book--it is packed with life-changing insights and practical tools to put you in control of your own success."-- Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times bestselling author of MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There Overflowing email. Endless to-do lists where everything is a "priority." Pain-in-the-neck colleagues. A crisis suddenly dumped on your desk. Nagging guilt. No doubt about it: For most of us, stress is "the new normal." Each day amid a steady stream of anxiety-producing events, it gets harder and harder just to stay afloat--and keep the tension from affecting your personal life--let alone achieve your next level of success. Conventional wisdom says we should eat right, get enough sleep, and take a deep breath. All good. Yet, even these don't always seem sufficient now. And anyway, who has the time? Business psychologist Sharon Melnick spent a decade researching tools and techniques for staying resilient and productive even under chaotic and ever-changing circumstances. In Success Under Stress Melnick supplies a treasure-trove of the most effective quick-fix tools that you can use immediately to: Get back to sleep in 3 minutes if you wake up at night worrying about work - Increase the time you have to think--and to finish your high-priority work - Boost your productivity dramatically by following one simple, but very powerful rule - Turn obstacles into opportunities by getting the emotion out of situations - Keep a cool head--even when others drive you nuts - Turn self-criticism into self-confidence, and speak up more powerfully at meetings - Increase your focus during the day (and keep things from falling through the cracks!)--and have more energy left at night. Success Under Stress provides a veritable arsenal of "magic bullet" solutions for increasing your productivity and minimizing your stress. It will help you turn down your internal pressure-cooker, remove friction from any relationship, and derive more career satisfaction than ever...all while exuding a level of calm and confidence that you've never known before. SHARON MELNICK, PH.D., is a business psychologist and stress-resilience speaker dedicated to helping professionals "get out of their own way."
