Présentation de l'éditeur

Throughout the ages, plenty of people have written and spoken about success and excellence. But leave it to contemporary philosopher and popular business speaker Tom Morris to gather the best of it into a universal tool kit for achieving nearly any goal. 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 great thinkers and successful people, such as Plato, Aristotle, Einstein, and Churchill, The Art of Achievement helps readers map out new paths to better health, greater efficiency, and deeper satisfaction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wise, Very Wise --- Best Tom Morris Book So Far 10 juin 2002
Par Greg Feirman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Tom Morris's "The Art of Achievement: Mastering the 7 Cs of Success in Business and Life" is a superb book. The book is very concise, about 195 pages including the Preface and Introduction, but it is absolutely brimming with insights into what it takes to achieve big goals and, more generally, fulfillment in life as a whole.
The book is structured around 7 conditions that Morris sees as helpful to the achievement of any goal one might set for himself. These 7 conditions are a Clear Conception, Confidence, Concentrated Effort, Consistency, Commitment, Character and the Capacity to Enjoy the process. Each part of the book fleshes out exactly what each of these conditions entails. Here are some of my favorite quotes. From the section on a Clear Conception, "Our choices are always broader than our past. The best adventures in life need to be chosen, not from a predetermined menu based on what we've done already, but rather out of our deepest sense of who we are and how we can contribute to the world" (pg 31). On Confidence, a quote from La Rochefoucauld, "There is a form of eminence that does not depend on fate; it is an air that sets us apart and seems to portend great things; it is the value that we unconsciously attach to ourselves; it is the quality that wins us the deference of others; more than birth, position, or ability, it gives us ascendance" (pg 41). On Character, "Aristotle stressed that human beings are always in a state of becoming. What we are becoming is determined largely by what we are doing day after day" (pg 152). And a few pages later, from Iris Murdoch, "But if we consider what the work of attention is like, how continously it goes on, and how imperceptibly it builds up structures of value round about us, we shall not be surprised that at crucial moments of choice most of the business of choosing is already past...... The moral life, on this view, is something that goes on continually...." (pg 154). On the Capacity to Enjoy the process, "Love is always connected to learning. All of us can look back on the times in our lives where we have had the most intense enjoyment and see that they were times of great learning - learning a new sport, a new job, learning about a new person, or learning new things about a person already clsoe to us. Love and learning go together" (pg 166).
This is a truly profound meditation on how the world works and what it takes to achieve true sucess in any endeavor. It's the kind of book I will come back to when I have questions about what I need to do to achieve a goal I have set for myself. ... Read this book!...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best "how-to" book I've read on achievement 26 juillet 2005
Par Dittohd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a really great book on the building blocks and requirements for attaining fulfilling achievement. I think one of the best parts of this book for me was the author's classification of achievement as an art. This softened the definition of achievement for me and liberated the concept from my perception as a cold, money-producing necessity to something beautiful, fulfilling, exciting and worthy of creation. Everyone is different, of course, and how we do things is always different from how others do things, even when we seemingly are doing the same thing. We all put our personalities into everything we do. That combined with our ability to choose how we use our unique, God-given abilities to create achievement art that will help both ourselves and others, makes fulfilling achievement very worth creating.

Tom Morris, according to the book, was a very popular philosophy professor at the University of Notre Dame. I don't doubt it. He breaks the art of achievement into seven c's and fully explains them all. He explains his thoughts, backs them up with further explanations, discusses them, tells of real-life examples, and further peppers the pages with quotes from past philosophers that support his assertions and conclusions. One thing he doesn't do is preach to you what he feels he knows is right and then expect you to automatically take his word for it as many persons do. I hate it when I run into that type of attitude. Tom Morris' tone is friendly and in addition to teaching, he convinces you throughout.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is stuck in a rut and feels that they're not achieving to their full potential, for whatever reason. He covers so much territory within each of his seven c's and in each of their supporting discussions that I think there is a lot in here for just about anyone in this predicament.

My only warning about this book: His politically correct college experience is no doubt responsible for the need he apparently felt to be conspicuously inclusive of both sexes in his examples throughout the book. He switches back and forth from the use of "he" and "him" to "she" and "her" in his examples and each time he did I found it very distracting from the discussion. Very annoying, but this is just a heads-up. Otherwise, the book is top notch and if you buy it, I'm betting you'll be glad you did.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A True Success Book At Last! 13 février 2003
Par Kerry Colling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am sorely disappointed that many of the major bookstores are not carrying The Art of Achievement.
It should be proudly displayed on the New Book stand in all its glory!
I've read other "success" oriented books and I can honestly say that Tom Morris latest book carries a depth far surpassing the majority. Although the subtitle "Mastering the 7 Cs of Success in Business and Life" may sound typical and perhaps a bit trite the vast amount of wisdom, insight, spirit and inspiration within these pages brings one to a point of realization, comfort and hope other pop books on success simply cannot touch!
If you have not been able to win friends and influence people. If your cheese has been moved and eaten up. If your prayer of Jabez is left unanswered it's time you to learn how to master the 7 c's of success!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I immediately bought a bunch of Tom Morris's books and I'm glad I did. 30 juin 2015
Par Brian Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"This book is about the ancient art of achievement. It's about making good things happen in business and in life. It's also a book of philosophy such as you may never have seen before. It will lay out some of the most practical and powerful guidance for living ever articulated by the world's great thinkers. It's all about growth, excellence, and the experience of a deep satisfaction in everything we do.
It's ultimately about making our mark in this world by mastering some of the most effective tools that have ever been devised for creative and fulfilling achievement." ~ Tom Morris from The Art of Achievement

I was introduced to this book by a friend and mentor of mine, John Mackey (the CEO of Whole Foods). John is one of my deepest inspirations to live my ideals and create cool stuff that can make a true difference in the world. So, when he recommends an author/book, I pay attention.

With a Ph.D. from Yale in both Philosophy and Religion, Morris was one of the most popular professors at the University of Notre Dame before dedicating himself to his pursuits as an author, speaker, consultant and chairman of the Morris Institute for Human Values. His books blend the intellectual rigor of a former philosophy professor with the fun, uber-practical advice of a wise uncle. I love it.

Here are some of my favorite Big Ideas:

1. The 7 Cs of Success - A road map to true success.
2. Telos & Targets - From Aristotle to you.
3. Competence & Confidence - One is the foundation of the other.
4. Courage & Confidence - The virtuous means.
5. Shortcuts & Magic - Ignore, please.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Agesless Wisdoms Integrated into a Practical Success Guide 16 février 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book does the reader a great service. With Tom's academic background he has searched the wisdoms of the ages to bring you a practical framework which will guide you in creating success in your life and business. His entertaining presentation style comes across in his writing, making this book very intriguing. It is a book that should be read and re-read as one implements the 7 C's of success. I will recommend this book to students and executives to give them an edge in making their careers and lives more successful. An inspiring and uplifting book. It will motivate you to achieve your dreams. It is "must have" for everyone's library.
