“It´s not how good you are, it´s how good you want to be” by Paul Arden was my recent read and my newest quick read recommendation. The book is separated in dozens of short 1-2 page chapters which are easy to read and point out their message. Give it 2-3 days and you are through with some new insights and ideas.
I´ve summarized nine quite interesting parts of the book for you, so that you will get a clue what this book is about.
Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have.
Do not seek praise, seek criticism.
It´s quite easy to get approval if we ask enough people or those we know that they say what we want to hear. Instead of seeking approval go for “What´s wrong with it? How can I make it better?” – with this question we probably will get criticism and may have the chance to get an improvement on our idea.
