WHY DELAY?

Things always get delayed. Having been delayed once, they get delayed again. Soon another project or another report is now delayed. Why? Relax. It’s not just you. Almost everyone is like that. Why? Whether it is a term paper at school, a report at work, a project...

WORK AT HOME OR NOT?

There is much debate about working at home vs. office. It’s the wrong debate. There is also much debate about how many hours a day or week one should work. It’s also the wrong debate. You need to put in as many hours a day, whether from home or office or both, as is...

Most budgets start with trying to increase prices as much as you think the market can bear. Next you try and squeeze down salaries and benefits as much as possible. Then you go squeeze your suppliers, maximum. Finally, your budget shows a good profit. You have...

The Plain Secret of Motivation

The plain secret of motivation is that you should NOT be motivated by others. Many professionals complain that their work is not up to par because they are not motivated by their superior. They say their immediate boss: steals credit for their work does not give clear...

DON’T “ALLOCATE” TIME FOR WORK-LIFE BALANCE

Advocates of work-life balance say that we need to allocate enough time for our personal and leisure lives. But life is not that simple. Life demands that we put in the time needed to meet and exceed the expectations of our stakeholders. Life demands that to succeed...

DOING IT RIGHT OR ON TIME?

Many of us believe we should get our work out on time - even if it can be improved. We argue that things need to keep moving and we can’t keep delaying, checking and improving. There are others who believe that it’s better to get it right and be a bit delayed, but...

Testimonials From All Over

Behind the secret of success delivers a simple but powerful message – People who are going to get ahead in the world are the ones who are motivated enough to control their attitudes. I have seen Ashok personally live the pages of this book over the last decade and half that I have known him. This is impactful

This new book by Ashok Nath is indeed a case of an honest tale speeds best, being plainly told. Secrets of success was never revealed in such easily understandable terms and actions for everyone.

Wilson Chan

Founding Partner, The Gravitas Partnership Former CEO, Ammirati Puris Lintas Hong Kong Fellow member, Hong Kong Institute of Directors

I met Ashok very soon after landing on our shores from Burma then (now Myanmar). Despite being in a new country he easily got very well accepted by the Filipino business community.

A very good friend of mine Tony Mercado Of Publicis introduced him to me and we have been friends ever since. Aside from being a member of Tony’s board he was the Founder and Publisher of World Executive Digest!

Since then Ashok has had many other positions. Presently he is Senior Fellow: Centre for Economic and Social Development, Myanmar. Chairman: Advisory Board, Hospital Management Asia and Co-chairman: Asian Publishing Convention.

I could go on and on, but it’s his new book I am strongly endorsing.

BEHIND THE SECRET OF SUCCESS – The Real Story is a book one has to read to appreciate so I will say no more! You won’t be sorry!

This is wisdom par excellence! I have spent over thirty years assigned to transforming business operations in distress for fortune 500 companies and as faculty at premier business schools teaching business excellence to E.M.B.A. & MBA students. How I wish I had Ashok’s “ Behind the Secret of Success” publication to hand at these times. If I have any criticism of the book, It’s a bit too short and has left me wanting much more! Ashok, when is the sequel coming?

We all aim at being successful. If you think hard work and perseverance will get you there, you are wrong. If you think luck and power will, you are also wrong. This book is aspirational because it believes we can become successful if we understand the triggers and drivers within and around us. The real story is about what we must do to achieve success.

The guidance in this book offers us a compass for thoughts and of actions, including a useful toolkit that creates catalytic impact in our journey to success.
