The Apprentice Asia winner, Jonathan Yabut, is back for more dose of grit!
Coming from the success of his best-selling debut book, “From Grit To Great”, Jonathan explores further what motivates and frustrates today’s office workers, millennial employees, and their Gen X managers.
Packed with his signature rants and inspiring quotes, “Fast Forward” showcases advice that cover the classic life cycle of an average employee: finding a job, learning from others, defeating office politics, loving a boss that you hate, getting promoted, and deciding to finally quit to find greener pastures. The book is loaded with practical lessons and stories which the Asian Apprentice learned in his work experiences around the world. Fast Forward was written by a millennial for the millennial on how to fast track one’s career despite the ruthless politics in the competitive business world.
You spend more than 60 percent of your waking hours at work. So if you’re miserable in the office, you are therefore miserable more than half of the time you’re awake! Imagine what your life would be if you turn those long working hours of sheer drudgery into Extraordinary Joy – something you only dream about while you sleep! While it’s not hard to accept “Extra Joy” as a poetic pitch and as a religious experience, can it really be found – of all the places in the world – in your office cubicle? This book answers with a thundering YES! and shows you how.

It’s very rare for me to come across a book that, after reading it, I’d say to myself, “How I
wish I’ve written this book.” This is that kind of book. It’s even rarer when you’d come across a
person who’s genuinely happy and true to his name as the dean of peace (Dean Pax), and you’d
wish you’d find out his secrets. In this book, my dear adopted son, Pax, unselfishly shared with
us his secrets. Pax also coaches us on how to co-create with God a life of success and a truly
happy retirement life. Whether you’re about to retire, or have decided to retire, or even if you’ve
already retired, you cannot do without this guide book in striving to be happy.

I have known Pax Lapid since childhood and he has always struck me as someone born
with a mission to make others happier, healthier, wealthier and simply better. His latest book is a
major step towards realizing his avowed mission — I will have him advise Meralco’s retirees. He
is a rock star in this subject. I am pre-ordering the book. How about you?
