We had one goal in writing Yes, You Can!--to create the most vital book you've ever owned.
You can use it to succeed in all phases of life--thinking, doing, speaking, listening, planning, managing, leading, working, parenting, loving, serving, and much more. The proven suggestions in this book will help you in your professional as well as your personal life.
This book contains 125 "advisements," each on a separate page headed by a goal (for example, "Increase your job security.") followed by an explanation of why that goal is important. Below each advisement is a list of anywhere from six to fifteen actions that can help you achieve the stated goal.
