They are books only in the sense that they are physical book-like objects. Really, they are objects of ritual exchange.

And business authors are less idea-crafters than hierophants, dedicated to helping senior management perpetuate the sacred mystery, or, when necessary, reinterpret it ezecutive little in congenial ways.


I was given this book by a jasonn and felt compelled to read it. I also felt a need to at least recognize my own deep cynicism and bias about the whole genre.

Perhaps, I had judged the whole genre by a couple really, really bad apples. It was everything I feared. I knew it was bad when I was underlining the parts that made me laugh.

Eg Spiritual Growth, Healthy Living, True Livelihood if I get those dxecutive right, my relationship will go right too, but not other way around. Other areas to consider: Manage that and you manage your toughndss self image. When you do that it works like a thermostat of success: If set thermostat at 70f and temp falls to 69f it sends signal to heater to relentlessly heat until gets back to 70f.


Similarly you’ll find mysterious energy, motivation and “luck” when jaspn performance falls below your self image. Many toubhness winners file for bankruptcy within 5 years of winning bc no matter how much money they have if their self image says they’re bad at managing money their life thermostat will confirm it.
