Springboard: Launching Your Personal Search for Success (Paperback)
Wharton professor Richard Shell created the Success Course to help his world-class MBA students answer two questions that aren't as obvious as they seem: "What, for me, is success?" and "How will I achieve it?"
Based on that acclaimed course, "Springboard" shows how to assess the hidden influences of family, media, and culture on your beliefs about success. Then it helps you figure out your unique passions and capabilities, so you can focus more on what gives meaning and excitement to your life, and less on what you are "supposed" to want.
