La procrastinación es conocida como «el ladrón del tiempo». Procrastinar es aplazar una tarea o situación que nos cuesta realizar y dedicarnos a otra que no nos suponga esfuerzo y nos produzca placer. Trabajar, estudiar, hacer deporte, levantarse de cama, realizar tareas domésticas, ponerse a dieta, tomar una decisión sobre algo importante... son ejemplos de tareas ante las que las personas solemos procrastinar.Tras la procrastinación no se esconde la pereza, la holgazanería o la apatía, sino que es el resultado un círculo vicioso en donde nosotros mismos nos generamos ansiedad porque anticipamos el sufrimiento físico o psicológico que hacer algo nos causará. Nos cuesta demasiado empezarlo y, como forma de evitar la ansiedad que nos produce pensar en hacerlo, lo aplazamos. En esos momentos, procrastinamos.Pero la procrastinación se puede vencer. La psicología nos proporciona las herramientas adecuadas para vencerla y no dejar que la ansiedad nos impida hacer algo que en realidad deseamos o necesitamos hacer.Esta edición ampliada de «Procrastinación: Vence las ganas de no hacer nada» profundiza en la historia de esta conducta, en sus causas y consecuencias, y explica con mayor detalle las estrategias para combatirla.

The central organ of the human body is the heart.It circulates the blood throughout the whole bodily system, pumping oxygen and nutrients to the other organs and pulling toxins away from them. Yet we human beings have another “heart”—a spiritual one—that is the true center of our existence. Our spiritual heart is our identity. It is the foundation of our whole being, from which our desires, designs, purposes, will, thoughts, and attitudes originate. Yet, as a result of the fall and our sinful nature, we all have symptoms of “heart disease,” and we need to know how to become spiritually heart-healthy. As the Scriptures say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” ( Jeremiah 17:9). Every spiritual, mental, and emotional matter—and many physical ones—is rooted in the heart. The state of our spiritual heart affects all aspects of our daily living. Therefore, the condition of our heart will be the condition of our life. Join Apostle Maldonado on a journey of discovery into the purpose, motivations, and potential of our spiritual heart. God wants us to understand how, in Christ, our heart is designed to “pump” life to our entire being—producing mental, emotional, and physical health and removing the toxins of sin. We were created to reflect the heart of our heavenly Father. And God is ready even now to change our heart to be like His through a supernatural transformation!

Fear Your Strengths
Author: Robert E. Kaplan, Robert B. Kaiser
Publisher: Berrett-Koehler Publishers
As a leader, your strengths can work against you. Many leaders know this on some intuitive level, but they tend not to accept it in practice. And the tools used to assess managers are not equipped to pick up on overplayed strengths. Nowhere in most assessments is there language or diagnostics that can reveal when someone is overdoing it--when more is not better. The authors help trace individuals' leadership behavior back to the "crooked thinking" and "trigger points" that can throw it off kilter. They identify four different overarching qualities of leadership and describe the damage that results when each is taken to an extreme, and how to get them back in balance. This work offers a practical psychology of leadership--a better way for leaders to get a reading on their performance, one that is truer to the realities of managerial work.
I'm working off my buttons. But I'm also giving them away. The more I fall for Crow, the more I want him to do the things that I want. Dinners, dates, and evenings at the beach. Everything comes at a price, and quickly the hoard of buttons I worked hard to earn are depleted. Will this go back and forth forever? Or will someone run out of their buttons first?
A book for nonbelievers who embrace the reality-driven life. We can't avoid the persistent questions about the meaning of life-and the nature of reality. Philosopher Alex Rosenberg maintains that science is the only thing that can really answer them—all of them. His bracing and ultimately upbeat book takes physics seriously as the complete description of reality and accepts all its consequences. He shows how physics makes Darwinian natural selection the only way life can emerge, and how that deprives nature of purpose, and human action of meaning, while it exposes conscious illusions such as free will and the self. The science that makes us nonbelievers provides the insight into the real difference between right and wrong, the nature of the mind, even the direction of human history. The Atheist's Guide to Reality draws powerful implications for the ethical and political issues that roil contemporary life. The result is nice nihilism, a surprisingly sanguine perspective atheists can happily embrace.
Everyone is controlled by something. Who is controlling your life, you, the devil, or the Holy Spirit? The Bible says we are controlled by the Holy Spirit. But how can someone know who is in control? Our flesh will always manipulate, make demands, and pressure us to fulfill its desires. The Holy Spirit is always gentle, meek, and humble. He will lead and guide us in a still small voice. By contrast, the devil's voice is sharp, hard, and pressing. The Holy Spirit will always lead us into all truth and bring clarity and understanding to our minds. Satan has only one purpose: to lie, deceive and confuse us. In THE SECRETS OF SPIRITUAL POWER, Joyce Meyer shows you how to obey the Holy Spirit. And by doing this you will experience spiritual power as well as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
