The Mindset

Productivity is a mindset. In my new book, 14 Steps To Better Productivity, I get into the details on fourteen different things you can do in your own life to increase your productivity. From goal setting to keeping a positive attitude, it’s often the little things that make the biggest difference in a person’s life. I hope you all pick up a copy of my new book, and to help make your decision a little bit easier this blog post will break down and describe the overarching themes and concepts discussed within. It’s my hope that a taste of what this book contains will help you realize that productivity is only fourteen steps away.

The first section of my book, chapters one to three, focuses on concepts centered on a person’s mindset. Like I said, productivity is a mindset, so getting the barriers to productivity out of your way is merely the first step to achieving it. These chapters break down a few common errors that people make and repeat, ultimately impeding their level of productivity. Some people obsess about one thing, others try to do too much. Without giving away the whole story, let me just say that having and maintaining the correct mindset for productivity is absolutely necessary to increasing efficiency in your day to day life.

Taking Actions

Moving on from mindset, in chapters four through seven I delve into ideas focused on a person’s actions. This is what most people think of when they think productivity, right? Ultimately it’s not at all incorrect to associate a high level of action with high levels of productivity. However, there are many exceptions. In these chapters I dive into a few of these issues, highlighting commons ways that people impede their productivity through their actions. For example, avoiding mistakes. Everyone does it. It doesn’t feel good to make mistakes, we all know that. But by purposefully avoiding any and all mistakes, many people are decimating their overall efficiency. Shake off the fear and get working, everyone makes mistakes!

Good Habits

After dissecting the actions and inaction that affect a person’s productivity, it takes us to the self. Undoubtedly a center of productivity, or lack thereof, in many people’s minds. This is where your habits come into play. Most people don’t realize that the start of a productive mindset frequently lies in the little things that we do throughout the day. For instance, goal setting. Experts across the world agree that simply through setting goals and recording them somewhere concrete, merely writing them down in many cases, can lead to incredible increases in productivity. Many people believe simply writing out one’s goals leads to their achievement. While I don’t go that far, in chapters eight through twelve I discuss many of the little habits a person can build or avoid, to ultimately skyrocket their performance.

Goal Setting

In the final two chapters before the conclusion, I take a moment to speak with my readers about lifestyles and lifestyle goals. This is a key section. While productivity is absolutely a mindset, it is also a lifestyle. Throughout the book you will find tips and tricks to build a better, healthier lifestyle. This is on purpose. You see, establishing the foundations of a healthy and happy life is one of the greatest things a person can do for their own benefit. Think about the last time you went to work unhappy. How was your productivity? Probably pretty low. Then think back to the last really great day you had in the office. High levels of productivity, right? The final chapters of my book serve to tie the bow on the overall themes, helping to cement the idea of a productivity mindset.

Bonus: Free 90-Day Success Planner

In conclusion, I can’t forget to mention that all readers of this book on productivity will receive Free 90-Day Success Planner. This is just a little thank you from me, as well as being an invaluable tool for increasing anyone’s productivity. I encourage each and every one of you to buy my book, I would not lead you astray.

Whether written or spoken, words have the power to break and build, hurt and heal. In the context of political speeches where stakes are so high, public speakers use words as the only instruments to influence the masses…

This is the first time ever I am making my PhD thesis available to a wider public since 2003. More so, the abstract is now available on Amazon. People kept asking me what my thesis was about and I decided to put together an executive summary and make it available for those who might be interested in the research I did :).

The thesis investigates the linguo-stylistic analysis of political discourse through the exploitation of textual categories such as modality. The choice of political speech as research material in a dissertation is conditioned by the available high coefficient of modality and the specific characteristics of its expression and implementation, particularly in oratory speeches. Distinctive features of modality expression in oratory speeches are the simultaneous interplay of logical, psychological and emotional factors that altogether make public speech more impressive. The study is based on factual materials, i.e., important political speeches by the UK prime ministers and the US presidents on the topic of war / terrorism and peace.

The overarching goal of the research is to understand the role of argumentation in oratory speech through the expression and implementation of modality, and the more specific role is to analyze those linguistic and stylistic means with the help of which the speaker exerts influence on the audience. Research topicality is conditioned by the need to explore the author’s modality and its expression means in oratory speeches, which has been brought into focus both in the domestic and foreign science of linguistics and by increasing interest in modern society towards mastering public speaking skills resulting from the process of democratization in
our country.

The scientific novelty of the research is an attempt, for the first time, to study the style-forming function of the category of modality in oratory speeches, given the extra-linguistic factors (endemic mentality, national distinctive features, historic, cultural, social and psychological elements of perception, along with place, time and audience of public speaking), which heavily influence the modality coefficient. In addition, stylistically analyzed linguistic means being directly involved in the expression of modality in oratory speech are considered, per se, to be the means of argumentation through which the author’s attitude is reflected towards objective realities.

The theoretical value of the research is the elaboration of the author’s evaluative modality that constitutes an essential part of the “argumentation-modality-style” triad concerned in the thesis and development of linguistic means analysis methodology in oratory speeches. The research results allow for deducing that modality in oratory speech is defined as a functional- communicative category, which directly contributes to the creation of the public speaker’s individual style and together with all its linguistic, psychological, cultural, social and political characteristic features, performs a characteristic function that, eventually, connects the author’s feedback with his/her audience and serves to exert an effective impact on the latter.

The full abstract is available on Amazon. Inside the abstract you can find a link to a full copy of the dissertation in Russian.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
