"Throughout the ages, plenty of people have written and spoken about success and excellence. In The Art of Achievement, contemporary philosopher and popular business speaker Tom Morris has culled the best advice--The 7 Cs of Success--from history's greatest thinkers to develop a concise, comprehensive, and eminently useful plan for achieving success in any endeavor. From a clear CONCEPTION of what we want to a stubborn CONSISTENCY in pursuing our vision to a CAPACITY to enjoy the process, The Art of Achievement outlines a simple framework that will lead readers down a road of excellence. Peppered with quotes from such great thinkers and successful people as Plato, Aristotle, Einstein, and Churchill, The Art of Achievement helps readers map out new paths to better health, greater efficiency, and deeper satisfaction"--Book jacket.
