How do we advance? As individuals, families, and businesses? As societies, nations, and a species? In a world where it’s said there is nothing new under the sun, we humans are remarkably resourceful at creating new things. The key to innovation is understanding, but not just by using facts, data, and casual observations. Progress demands the profound and useful understanding of a person or a thing, a situation or an issue. And profound and useful understanding that truly effects change is that most elusive of phenomena: insight. How To Be Insightful provides a novel and deeply practical framework that anyone can use to generate more powerful and impactful insights from the increasing volumes of data we all face every day, whatever we do. The framework – the STEP Prism of Insight – has been developed through decades of both practice and training, and the book includes many exercises designed to help strengthen and develop readers’ insight muscles. The book explains the history, psychology, and neuroscience of insight and includes snapshots of insight from international experts in many different fields – psychology and neuroscience, music and acting, forensic science and market research.

HOW DO I TRANSFORM MY LIFE? The answer is simple: come up with ten ideas a day. It doesn't matter if they are good or bad the key is to exercise your 'idea muscle', to keep it toned, and in great shape. People say ideas are cheap and execution is everything but that is NOT true. Execution is a consequence, a subset of good, brilliant idea. And good ideas require daily work. Ideas may be easy if we are only coming up with one or two but if you open this book to any of the pages and try to produce more than three, you will feel a burn, scratch your head, and you will be sweating, and working hard. There is a turning point when you reach idea number 6 for the day, you still have four to go, and your mind muscle is getting a workout. By the time you list those last ideas to make it to ten you will see for yourself what "sweating the idea muscle" means. As you practice the daily idea generation you become an idea machine.When we become idea machines we are flooded with lots of bad ideas but also with some that are very good. This happens by the sheer force of the number, because we are coming up with 3,650 ideas per year (at ten a day). When you are inspired by an extraordinary idea, all of your thoughts break their chains, you go beyond limitations and your capacity to act expands in every direction. Forces and abilities you did not know you had come to the surface, and you realize you are capable of doing great things. As you practice with the suggested prompts in this book your ideas will get better, you will be a source of great insight for others, people will find you magnetic, and they will want to hang out with you because you have so much to offer. When you practice every day your life will transform, in no more than 180 days, because it has no other evolutionary choice. Life changes for the better when we become the source of positive, insightful, and helpful ideas. Don't believe a word I say. Instead, challenge yourself to try it for the 180 days and see your life transform, in magical ways, in front of your very eyes.

Everyone knows the importance of good marketing, but few companies consistently create successful campaigns. Spending marketing dollars wisely, especially now when the economy is in a downturn, is more important than ever. Based on over forty years of combined marketing experience, consultants Sally Beamer and Gerardo Tabío will teach you a solid marketing strategy to develop innovative ideas targeted to the interests and wants of your customers. Using a methodology that they have honed with both large corporations—like Coca Cola, Volkswagen, and Wendy’s—and small, locally owned businesses, such as car dealerships, jewelry stores, and radio stations, the authors guide you step by step to create a marketing plan that will produce positive, measurable results. From their wealth of experience, Beamer and Tabío use many entertaining and enlightening anecdotes so that you can immediately understand and implement their advice. Their simple formula allows you to quickly generate a lengthy list of diverse, novel, and relevant ideas, while holding to a high standard. Then you will learn how to troubleshoot and refine this list to find the best ideas to reach your target customers and add to the bottom line. Using the ingenious approach taught in this book, companies both large and small will be able to develop customized, novel ideas that meet specific marketing objectives and vastly improve the likelihood of a campaign’s success.
