'It is easier to complicate than to simplify' – this book takes up that challenge and aims to refine and clarify the theories in the original Results to produce a more succinct route to clarity and better results for the reader – because we all want to see results at home, at work and in life! Using transformational coaching techniques, examples, exercises and metaphors, Jamie talks the reader through the three key changes they need to achieve the results they are after and inspire others to do the same. Based on the principles of The Clarity Coaching Model, the reader will learn how to de-congest their mind to think more clearly, make better decisions and improve performance – achieving the ‘flow’ state attributed to the results of top-flight individuals. Clearer thinking removes the stress and anxiety from decision making and allows you to focus on your goals. Rather than a step-by-step process, the reader is encouraged to form a deep understanding of themselves to awaken their inner potential and improve their innate abilities including better listening, deeper connections, more motivation and greater innovation and creativity.

The Barbeque Eatery is the institution that the locals find as the defining mark of the expatriate Australian and American communities in their own country.<br><br>If there is one expatriate, he sends home letters and postcards. If there are two expatriates they set up a Sunday service. If there are three expatriates then after the worship service, they set up the barbeque.<br><br>In a way the Barbeque represents the stage when the expats consider the foreign country no more foreign than their home.<br><br>They have been accepted by the local community and they can gather to enjoy themselves in a way that is special to them.<br><br>This book takes the approach of expats introducing the barbeque to the locals. Many local communities have the barbeque but none has developed such a rich food culture related to the barbeque.<br><br>The food culture would be less rich if not for the addition of the barbeque and the social life that grows around as locals and the expats mingle over good food.
The author focusses on the delights of the food to be offered to the customer.<br><br>"Indian" food is meant to excite the senses, as it is colourful, it is tasty and making it is a joy. To the food entrepreneur indian food causes so much joy to you that I have included Unit 13 because I am afraid that the joy will carry you to beyond the limits to sheer exhaustion and a sense that you or your food is not fully appreciated.<br><br>So you need to be on guard against those who only choose one aspect and push that one aspect to its ultimate end. I am referring to those who misinterpret Indian food as being chilli hot. The truth is that chilli is just one aspect of that food. Other interpretations may include the slowness of the cooking. Another aspect of Indian food is to provide a large variety of fresh food from fish to vegetables to meat and to fruit.<br><br>All Indian food is about communal and personal enjoyment. <br><br>Keep up the good work of spreading the sensual joy of Indian food to the far flung corners of the world.<br><br>I wish you every success in your endeavours.
