你準備好即興過人生了嗎?

CEO與創業者艾瑪.艾薩克斯(Emma Isaacs)忘記做好人生規劃,也沒有立下五年目標。她不相信工作與人生有可能達到平衡——畢竟她有五個孩子要養,而且還是澳洲最大的女性社群Business Chicks 的CEO。

如雪柔‧桑德伯格(Sheryl Sandberg)提出的「挺身而進」(lean in)才能成功,艾瑪想告訴我們的是,你沒辦法計畫好每件事的細節,然後等待自己累積足夠信心後再起步;她建議我們馬上行動,立刻往自認是正確的方向前進,一切自然會水到渠成。換句話說,與其等待,你必須學習如何「即興過人生」。

從自身的經驗與她認識的成功人士無私的成功秘密分享,包括維珍集團的創辦人兼董事長理查·布蘭森爵士(Richard Branson)、微軟(Microsoft)創辦人比爾蓋茲(Bill Gates)等,艾瑪.艾薩克斯告訴我們

★把夢想變成工作
★把工作變成事業
★無時無刻運用社交手段廣結人緣
★不讓你的時間被瑣事佔據
★認知失敗是過程不是終點

本書不只是出版品,更是一項生活運動,號召所有女性勇於嘗試,建立財富,製造影響力,多次跌倒後再爬起來。本書教你學習相信自己,不要依賴「安全」或「簡單」的選項,或是躲在完美計畫的背後(而且說到底,沒有完美的計畫這回事!)。作者分享她成功與失敗的故事,以及她從這些經驗中學到的教誨,讓讀者了解成功不是只保留給別人,也鼓勵他們現在就起身勇敢追夢。正如TED演講者、社會心理學家、哈佛大學教授艾美.柯蒂(Amy Cuddy)說的:「《即興人生》是我們人人都需要的行動指令。這是我們需要的鼓勵,也是我們渴望實際邁步前進、放膽追求收穫的保證。」

‘I have always thought Business Chicks to be the modern day Country Women’s Association – a movement of women working together to support one another, and support their communities. Emma is at the helm of this movement and it’s easy to see why they have achieved such success – her genuine desire to serve women, and to ensure our daughters are left with a better world, is ubiquitous.’
--THE HONOURABLE DAME QUENTIN BRYCE AD CVO, 25th Governor-General of Australia

‘Emma Isaacs doesn’t just encourage us to move out of fear, she demands it of us. Winging It is the reminder we all need that life is short and we have to pack in as much living as we can. She’ll equip you with the tools to use and show you the shortcuts you need to get ahead and start thriving.’
--TURIA PITT, author, humanitarian, athlete

‘Winging It is the book I wished I’d read when I was starting out in business. I started my company thinking I was doing it for the flexibility of raising my young family but soon realised it would take every moment of my time, every ounce of my energy and every piece of resolve to make it all work and become a success. My 30s were a complete blur as I scaled my company and raised my children and I wish I had this resource to guide me – it would have made all the difference!’
--NAOMI SIMSON, founder of RedBalloon, co-founder of Big Red Group, Shark Tank Australia

‘Winging It is a manual for the brave and open-hearted. It’s a practical, witty and inspirational guide for opening yourself up to possibilities and attempting what hasn’t yet been achieved. Read it, then jump!’
