The Shift—the book inspired by the movie of the same name—illustrates how and why to make the move from ambition to meaning. Experience the internationally renowned principles and teachings of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer as they come to life in this one-of-a-kind enhanced e-book. Download The Shiftand allow these lessons to guide you down a more authentic and rewarding path today. As we contemplate leaving the morning of our life, where ego has played a commanding role, and entering the afternoon (and evening), where meaning and purpose replace ambition and struggle, we may encounter unexpected occurrences that accompany this new direction. It’s almost a universal law that we’ll experience a fall of some kind. Yet these falls or low points provide the energy we need to move away from ego and into a life of meaning and purpose. The Shift doesn’t mean that we lose our drive and ambition; it signifies that we become ambitious about something new. We make a commitment to living a life based on experiencing meaning and feeling purposeful, rather than a life based on never-ending demands and false promises that are the trademark of the ego’s agenda.

The Next Evolution in Baseball Thinking

With its three-hour-long contests, 162-game seasons, and countless measurable variables, baseball is a sport which lends itself to self-reflection and obsessive analysis. It's a thinking game. It's also a shifting game. Nowhere is this more evident than in the statistical revolution which has swept through the pastime in recent years, bringing metrics like WAR, OPS, and BABIP into front offices and living rooms alike. So what's on the horizon for a game that is constantly evolving? Positioned at the crossroads of sabermetrics and cognitive science, The Shift alters the trajectory of both traditional and analytics-based baseball thought. With a background in clinical psychology as well as experience in major league front offices, Baseball Prospectus' Russell Carleton illuminates advanced statistics and challenges cultural assumptions, demonstrating along the way that data and logic need not be at odds with the human elements of baseball—in fact, they're inextricably intertwined. Covering topics ranging from infield shifts to paradigm shifts, Carleton writes with verve, honesty, and an engaging style, inviting all those who love the game to examine it deeply and maybe a little differently. Data becomes digestible; intangibles are rendered not only accessible, but quantifiable. Casual fans and statheads alike will not want to miss this compelling meditation on what makes baseball tick.

There is a world called Shoeba, much like Earth, but far off in the universe. It is governed by a faceless corporation known only as The Organization. Life there is similar to life on Earth, except that from the moment a baby is born it has the ability to shift the cells in its body, allowing it to take the shape of an animal. At the exact moment each person becomes 15 years old, they lose the ability to take the shape of all animals, centering on only one, which they call their 'Permanent'. That one animal determines new traits and personalities developed by that person and influences their entire life. This world has been experiencing complete peace for as long as history documents can tell. That peace is believed to continue for the rest of eternity�but one baby will change everything. When Mark Ornill realizes on his 15th birthday that he doesn't have a Permanent, his life spirals out of control. With each step he uncovers chilling revelations about his past and about the mysterious government which holds unimaginable secrets.

Preface This book has been in the works approximately thirty-seven years. When I was twenty-two, I knew I was going to write a book. I just didn't know what the topic would be or where it would go. That was in the days of manual typewriters. Functional home computers with word processing were still about eight years away. It wasn't until about two years ago in the spring of 2010 that I felt it was time to write. I toyed with a couple of different themes since biblical prophecy was my prime interest. However, as the writing progressed, I felt the Lord directing me to write the story of my journey from religion in the Roman Catholic tradition to a Bible-based, personal relationship with God as the creator of the universe. I grew up attending Catholic schools and my experiences are very similar to thousands of others who have attend parochial school. It was a great experience and solid educationally. It just wasn't fulfilling spiritually. I don't focus on the political and social issues facing the Catholic Church, as some folks have. I will not Catholic-bash. If anything, I have tried to be evenhanded concerning my experiences growing up Catholic and those of dealing with my Protestant Christian friends. There will be some things said in this book that will cause my Catholic friends to cringe. There will also be some conclusions with which my Protestant friends will disagree. The story is my personal journey and one I am happy to share. It is the story of my journey from religion to relationship, and my personal view from the pew.

"The Shift Age lifts us out of the rapids of techno-change and helps us see the course of the river we've been rafting on."-Howard Bloom, author of the GOD PROBLEM and GLOBAL BRAIN "[The Shift Age] is must read for anyone who is interested in where humanity is headed in coming generations.

Read this book!"-Reese Schonfeld, Cofounder of CNN, CNN Headline News, and Food Network "America needs a new educational vision. Shift Ed provides a clear vision that emphasizes the essential ingredients of a twenty-first-century education based upon creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. Houle makes a great case that nothing less than transformation will be enough."-Daniel H. Pink, author of A WHOLE NEW MIND: WHY RIGHT-BRAINERS WILLL RULE THE FUTURE and DRIVE: THE SURPRISING TRUTH ABOUT WHAT MOTIVATES US "The New Health Age offer a succinct primer on how we got here and where we should be taking the health of our nation" -Mehmet Oz, M.D., host of The Dr. Oz Show The Information Age? Think again. Change is everywhere: how we communicate, what we do for a living, the values we hold, the way we raise our children, even the way we access information. Thanks to a global economy, the force of the Internet, and the explosion of mobile technology, we have—almost imperceptibly—been ushered into a new era, the Shift Age, in which change happens so quickly that it's become the norm. Man-made developments—such as tools, machines, and technology—defined previous ages, but the Shift Age will be defined by our own power of choice. In Entering the Shift Age, leading futurist David Houle argues that we are going through a major collapse of legacy thinking, eroding many of the thought structures that have defined the last two hundred years of humanity. Houle identifies and explains the new forces that will shape our lives—including remote workplaces, the cloud, "24/7" culture, speed-of-light connectivity, creativity, and the influence of Millenials and Digital Natives—for the next twenty years. In this eye-opening book, Houle navigates this pivotal point in human history with clarity and anticipation, focusing on the power of human consciousness and the direct influence we can impart on everything from healthcare to media to education. According to Houle, we are more independent than ever before. We are in control. There's no "going back" to the way things were. Reality is changing ever faster, and ENTERING THE SHIFT AGE is your guide to keeping up.
