Summary of Success Is a Journey
7 Steps to Achieving Success in the Business of Life
The secret of success: Plan, fail, change your plan.
Jeffrey J. Mayer presents a series of success principles, time management techniques, and networking guidelines for becoming more successful. The book is easy-to-read and targeted to the individual in any type of business. A basic flaw of the book is the lack of originality in both ideas and presentation. Indeed, there are many well-worn platitudes about success and most of the time-management material will sound quite obvious. The workbook-type questions also have a familiar ring. Nonetheless, getAbstract.com recommends the book to managers and executives who want to brush up on their time management skills.
In this summary, you will learn
- What traits successful people share;
- How to create a master plan to become successful; and
- How to take responsibility for your time and connect with the right people.
