Author Dean Erickson's New Book: "Act. Adapt. Achieve." Reveals Missing Step to Success and Introduces Idea Circle

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - The new book "Act. Adapt. Achieve." (Bionic Publishing, October 2012, ISBN: 1478286830: $12.95 paperback, $3.99 Kindle) reveals what is missing in the pursuit of most goals: the periodic analysis of the results of one's actions and the subsequent adaptations and course corrections that can lead to success. In this book, author Dean Erickson shares the process he developed while achieving success in academics, athletics, entertainment and the business world, as an Ivy League college graduate, honored athlete, former working actor and Wall Street trader, and current CEO of Bionic Capital LLC. "Act. Adapt. Achieve." introduces Erickson's newly-created "Idea Circle," which can be used by individuals who seek greater success in business, athletics, weight loss or almost any endeavor, and by larger organizations for project management, product development and other purposes.

The book explains how to:

  • gain clarity and focus in on your most important goal;
  • overcome setbacks;
  • adapt to new information, opportunities and challenges;
  • live by plan and action, not chance and chaos;
  • and make success a habit.

Packed with motivation and information, including Success Worksheets to help readers stay on track, "Act. Adapt. Achieve." is meant for anyone who wants to live their best life and attain their goals.

"Too many people hope for success more than they plan and work for it," says Erickson. "Rather than simply hoping that 'the universe will provide,' know that you already have everything you need to achieve success. You just have to accept responsibility and use what you already possess."

Erickson wrote "Act. Adapt. Achieve." as a follow-up to his first personal development book, "Choose Your Story, Choose Your Life," in which he wrote about the challenges he faced growing up in a home with an alcoholic father, and how he transformed his life by choosing to focus on and tell the best version of his personal story.

Ten percent of net proceeds from the sale of both books will benefit charities that help children achieve their dreams as well as The V. Foundation for Cancer Research.
