Million Dollar Adjustments: The Power of Small Changes on Performance, Productivity, and Peace


Based on years of research in professional baseball, this book shares the reason why the word “adjustment” is the key to success.

Everyone has desires placed on their hearts. Whether it’s succeeding at work, losing weight, completing education, or improving key relationships, the list goes on and on. To fulfill these desires, we tend to employ familiar tools that have worked for us in the past. But then life throws us a curveball—a job loss, relationship troubles, or a global pandemic—and we get stuck. We have to search for new ways and new tools to adjust to these changes.

Linda Wawrzyniak knows the enormous impact even the smallest adjustments can have on improving performance and increasing overall confidence and contentment. As a consultant and educator for Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, Linda began helping players navigate the challenges that come from acculturation and transition; at the same time, she also discovered the secret to improving their performance on the field. For the first time ever, she shares the secret of successful adjustments from within the closely guarded world of professional baseball. As a special bonus, the reader will have the opportunity to learn more about their own adjustment pattern tendencies through the Adjustment Awareness Audit, derived from the test used inside the MLB draft.

Loaded with examples from Linda’s experiences as an MLB consultant and education coach, as well as her work in the corporate world and insight as a parent, Million Dollar Adjustments shows readers the difference between passive learning and active executing—allowing them to gain the confidence to make bolder steps in life and reach for their goals with greater awareness and new tools in hand. With insights from the results of testing and stories of how adjustments transform people, this is a unique and impactful read for today’s digital transformation age.
