  • Chapter 12 - Undercover agents. Lace or latex? Satin or silk? Your underwear is an effective relationship barometer. Excuse us while we rummage through your laundry, but sorting out your smalls can make a big difference.
  • Chapter 20 - Culture club. Cupid’s arrow can cut through all sorts of social, racial and religious differences, not to mention gender. Do cultures always have to clash? Of course not. Time to celebrate diversity.

  • Chapter 11 - Breaking up needn't be hard to do. You’ve reached your decision and you want to break up. So, how are you going to do it? This idea takes you through the actual break-up and helps you to leave without breaking the wedding crystal, or your heart.
  • Chapter 33 - Grandparents - the forgotten casualties. Grandparents are the overlooked casualties of divorce. In this idea we will look at the ways in which grandparents are affected by divorce and what they can do so they don’t become a forgotten statistic.

  • Chapter 1 - Who you are is what you get. To transform your life you have to understand how to take full responsibility for what you can make happen. And this means learning the difference between what you can control and what you can’t.
  • Chapter 6 - Creating your own reality. A positive mental attitude can transform a glass from being half empty to being half full and then actually help to fill the glass.
  • Chapter 17 - Encourage to inspire. The motivation to change has to come from within us. People can, of course, encourage us in a number of ways, but ultimately motivation isn’t an external energy.
  • Chapter 20 - Don't live your life by accident. We do have a choice about how we live our lives. For example, we can choose to focus on work. Alternatively, we can place a higher priority on family and leisure. Whatever our choice, how do we get the balance just right?

  • Index and Introduction

  • Chapter 8 - Actions speak louder than If you have taken a decision and informed your boss of what you and your team are going to do, for your career’s sake make absolutely sure it happens.
  • Chapter 19 - You are totally responsible for you. It is a great mistake to think that anyone is as interested in your career as you are. Once you are past first-line management, you have to work out where you want to go and how to get there. Use the annual appraisal to get your boss’s agreement to what you want to do.
  • Chapter 26 - What goes around comes around. Most people start networking when they are unhappy in their job or have been made redundant. Too late. Put your network of contacts to work on your career at all times. You never know when someone you used to know comes around again.
  • Chapter 34 - I'm alright, its the others. You can’t build a career by blaming those around you for any failure to perform. Assuming leadership implies taking responsibility for what your team delivers. You lose credibility with your boss if you blame your team, and it’s hugely demotivating. Break out of the blame culture.
