Foreword by Faisal Hoque, Author of Everything Connects, Columnist for Fast Company & Business Insider
What if we knew our moments more richly, more deeply as they unfold? What if we experienced more memorable moments in any given day?
That is the simple premise of The Moment. While traditional books on mindful living focus on how we achieve enlightenment or establish a meditation practice, The Moment offers a disarmingly practical, no-nonsense approach to creating a mindful life.
It introduces 4 Keys that instantly elevate our experience of any moment: Wake up your senses. Crave meaning. Wave-ride energy. Make time stand still.
These 4 Keys are instantly applied. They foster success in absolutely every facet of our lives. And they offer a truly playful path to creating a mindful life.

Technology allows us to communicate at a furious pace. We have reduced our communications down to efficient sound bites – and at the same time we seem to know less and less about how to connect. Deeply, profoundly connect.
In Infectious, acclaimed performance coach Achim Nowak introduces the reader to his powerful 4 Levels of Connection. Folks who connect deeply with others connect on 4 levels: They shape conversations with ease, and they play consciously with the unspoken elements of a connection – personal power, intent, and energy. The result? Infectious connections that accelerate personal success!
Infectious offers clear language tools for framing any conversation. It demystifies the experience of energy – the deepest of the 4 levels, and the root of any connection. It looks at how we access our energy. Remove energy blocks. Play with energy and own it.
“It’s time to take a hard look at your people connections, and use these tips to kick your results up a notch.” Forbes
“Nowak’s tone is upbeat and encouraging; his appeal to “rejoice!” in the ability to work together with others will be a welcome exhortation for readers looking to make their business or social encounters more real and more productive.” Publishers Weekly
Why do some speakers do everything right and still not connect with an audience? What is the secret of the star presenter who is able to inspire even the toughest crowd?
