Learn From Yourself,
This review is from: Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (Hardcover)
Every bookstore is filled with business books that tell you WHAT to do and HOW to do it. They often seem to give contradictory recommendations. This WHY book will resolve many of the apparent paradoxes and put you on your path.
The truth is most people are too busy doing to think about the most important question which is WHY they are doing. It is likely thinking through the examples in the book you will discover why you are working too hard for your results and more importantly be able to concentrate on achieving far more with far less effort.
Want to know why people love some companies and not others, why it usually takes 2 guys in a garage, why some companies soar and others crash? It's in there.
A note on what is not in the book. There are no 7 steps to accomplishing anything you want. What and how you do things are up to you, once you figure out the why. But again there are no shortages of other books and people who can help with that.
A final note, this is a business book, but the applications extend far beyond business.
