About the Book

"My second-grade teacher noticed. She guided me out of the classroom and into the hall. She gently asked why on earth I was crying over a game of bingo. As only a precocious 8-year-old could, I tried to explain that I hated bingo because it required no skill. It was pure luck. There was no strategy to employ, no natural talent to rely on to win. Either your numbers were called, or they weren't. I couldn't extract value out of a win. There was no meaning to victory-although loss still hurt. My teacher gently explained that it was "just a game" and encouraged me to enjoy it. But that's the thing. There has been nothing in my life that has been "just a game." Every win was a small indication that things would work out, that I'd be okay. Every loss was a devastating reminder that I could lose everything-and probably would."--

Book Synopsis

What Works: A Comprehensive Framework To Change the Way We Approach Goal Setting is an antidote to the relentless pursuit of "more" and the culture of striving that we live in. It's an unconventional approach to goal-setting, planning, and execution that prioritizes practice over achievement in both life and work. Not just a call to slow down or find the joy in missing out, What Works walks the reader through a framework for examining what's driving their pursuit of more, setting commitments to orient their growth, and organizing their action as a learning process.

This book is not only for the overachievers, the productivity-obsessed, and the ladder-climbers who are ready to do things differently, but also for those who have never seen themselves in the pages of books about goals or habits but crave some structure for growth. Above all, it's for those exhausted by constant comparison and the quest for conventional success, looking for a gentler way to work toward what they truly want. It's a framework for exploring growth without striving. It's a blueprint for making choices based on who we want to become rather than who we're "supposed" to become to get ahead.
