Chase the Change
Bridging the Gap between Thinking and Doing

  • Sandeep Jain - CEO & Founder, Value-Unlocked Private Limited

September 2022 | 248 pages | SAGE Response
The heaviest burden that anyone can carry is the burden of their unrealized potential, and yet most of us are guilty of carrying this burden. 

We all know that change does not come easy. It is a process, and we need to make it happen. The book explores what holds us back, the psychology of change, the unconscious biases that interfere with change, and the irrefutable laws of change which we all are aware of but don't live by. Using his learnings, observations and research, the author has codified the process of personal change in WONDER—an acronym for how to get started with change, build positive habits, motivation and commitment to stay the course, and how to eventually win at change.
