Book Highlight — The Motivation Myth by Jeff Haden
Are you tired of trying (and failing) to get motivated before you start a new endeavor?
Author Jeff Haden has a secret: motivation isn’t what spurs your effort towards a goal; it’s the result of making progress.
In his book, The Motivation Myth: How High Achievers Really Set Themselves Up to Win, Haden argues that the modern concept of “motivation” is nothing more than a myth. What sets a high achiever apart from a failure isn’t some ineffable sense of purpose and initiative. It’s simply the willingness to try.
In the book, Haden explains how to get started without conventional motivation and how to expect it after you’ve made some progress. By taking on this perspective, you can change how you think about self-improvement and success and better understand that all high achievers began from the same place.
