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!...
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.
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!
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.
