How anyone can be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle--the well-known, unpublicized secret that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.

The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.

Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today's business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.

The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.

生命,才是最值得去的地方 : 敘事治療與旅行的相遇

黃錦敦 著

旅行看似出走,卻是一種回歸。

作者透過旅行途中遇見的人事物,介紹敘事治療的視野;同時透過敘事治療的眼光,回頭看看旅程裡的風景,一路上且行且思,讓「旅行故事」與「敘事治療概念」來回對話,交織成一幅深刻動人的生命風景,幫助讀者打開心扉,向內旅行,撐起更大的心靈空間。

在旅行裡,旅者交換了故事,也就交換了生命的某種能量。

當我透過聆聽別人的生命故事,而碰觸到自己內在的深刻經驗,這種共鳴感受就是所謂的生命感。這些生命的碰觸會影響我接下來的行動與思考,影響我的人生。這就是敘說故事的影響力。因為彼此的生命在故事裡現身,於是更深刻的相互影響就發生了,這也就是為何敘事治療強調聽故事、說故事,因為故事可以承載活生生的生命,可以更自然地產生影響人的力道。

地圖集 : The Atlas : Archaeology of an Imaginary City

董啟章 著
online access from AiritiBooks

check resources by the author in CityU Library Catalogue

這不是一本地圖
它是90年代以來重要的城市論述
在空間與權力中
它讓我們認識一座城市的身世

中國時報開卷好書獎、亞洲週刊中文十大好書、紅樓夢獎決審團獎、香港藝術發展局藝術發展獎年度最佳藝術家獎、聯合文學小說新人獎、聯合報文學獎、聯合報讀書人最佳書獎得主、香港知名作家董啟章┼畫家楊智恆,跨界跨域首度合作

地圖模仿世界,還是世界模仿地圖?
地圖是埋藏在時間之下的地方,
地圖是凝止在地方之上的時間。

在1841年之前,在1997年之後,
故事已經開始,故事還未結束。
考古學家是下一個太平盛世的第一位備忘錄零餘者,
用文字繪畫香港的地圖,建構一段被遺忘的V城歷史。

彷彿波特萊爾筆下所描述的城市漫遊者般,
或者卡爾維諾的馬可波羅,
考古學家憑藉上一個千年殘存下來的維多利亞城地圖,
通過想像,解讀和重構一個湮沒城市的面貌,
開發地圖這種地理測繪形式中的歷史、文化和權力暗示,
把地圖重新讀成一種小說、一種虛構、一種偽嚴肅,偽學術風格,看似正經,實則荒誕。
有如卡爾維諾的《看不見的城市》,用解讀地圖的方式
把一座實實在在的香港城拆成數十節神祕而虛幻的片段

香港新生代重要畫家楊智恆,特別為本書繪製四幅具有代表性意義的跨頁插畫,
小說家VS.畫家,是對昔日香港的沉思,對香港未來的推想;
更是小說諧仿理論論述的有趣實驗。

地圖集》分為理論篇、城市篇、街道篇和符號篇,全書成於1997年前夕,作者董啟章嘗試在這歷史性時刻重繪香港地圖:

.理論篇發掘或發明各種形容香港地理的名詞,帶出閱讀城市的理論;
.城市篇與街道篇結合虛構與地方掌故,重寫歷史,審視當下的香港;
.符號篇是對香港城市透過書寫想像的空間刺探一個實體城市的過去、現在與將來。在史實的基礎上鋪排虛構的情節,虛實之間,令讀者著迷。

從理論篇→城市篇→街道篇→符號篇,
從消失到重建,
香港,這個名字,
從文字到畫面躍然紙上。
