· How can you get people to stay focused on executing your plans?
· Are you pursuing too many "top" priorities?
· How do you avoid irrational traps without getting bogged down by over-analysis?
These are just a few of the vital questions you'll find answers to in this groundbreaking book by internationally acclaimed thought leader and decision expert, Nick Tasler.
Decades of research in social science and business strategy, as well as Tasler's own findings from surveying the decisions of hundreds of thousands of working adults reveal that the most successful people, teams, and companies are not those with access to the widest variety of opportunities or the steadiest supply of creative ideas. Surprisingly, the opposite is true. Too many exciting opportunities, good ideas, and "top" priorities erode our focus, confuse our teams, and keep us swirling around on a plateau of mediocrity.
Why Quitters Win reveals why Tasler's elegantly simple 3-part Strategic Behavior framework is already driving excellence for everyone from Fortune 500 executives and middle managers to busy moms, small business owners and church leaders. Tasler's gift for storytelling and casual writing style takes readers on an exciting journey to discover how the principles of strategic behavior preserved Yellowstone National Park and saved Starbucks, while the failure to practice these principles nearly brought the United States to its knees and might be holding your team back from achieving its true potential this year.

Add Nick Tasler's latest book to the list of things that make you go "hmm." This is a fun, easy read that attempts to breakdown the complexities of the human existence and then assemble a simple formula for success: Think -Know - Do. I'm not one to exagerate, but the pages really do fly by as Nick unravels what separates the men from the... from the really successful men who actually get what they want and generally don't live in their parents' basement (not that there is anything wrong with that). As I was reading this book, I found myself torn on whether I should start the next chapter or put the book down and immediately start implementing these ideas. (I applied Nick's decision making apparatus to my conundrum and quickly concluded that finishing the book was optimal.) I have to say, the ease and speed with which I can now make decisions is improved thanks to this book. Well worth the read.
