Book review: It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be: The world’s best selling book

This Tuesday I spent the day in Cardiff and mooched about in various shops. I popped into Urban Outfitters and discovered this book; a beautiful, compact and monochromatic guide on success by Phaidon publishers.

It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want to Be: The world’s best selling book

I don’t necessarily agree with everything in the book but here are the Top 5 golden lines:

  • Don’t look for the next opportunity. The one you have in hand is the opportunity
  • Have you noticed how the cleverest people at school are not those who make it in life?
  • If you get stuck, draw with a different pen
  • When it can’t be done, do it. If you don’t do it, it doesn’t exist.
