Perhaps no other “success” book has influenced more people
than Napoleon Hill’s Classic “Think and Grow Rich.” Since it’s
introduction in 1937, millions of copies have been sold around the
world. It still remains one of the top selling books of its kind.
Several months ago I came across an audiobook biography of
Hill and it was an eye-opening adventure into the life of a man
whose days were not the “smooth sailing” I had always assumed
Before beginning the book you will profit greatly if you recognize the fact that the book was not written to
entertain. You cannot digest the contents properly in a week or a month. After reading the book thoroughly,
Dr. Miller Reese Hutchison, nationally known Consulting Engineer and long-time associate of Thomas A.
Edison, said-- "This is not a novel. It is a textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the
experiences of hundreds of America's most successful men. It should be studied, digested, and meditated
upon. No more than one chapter should be read in a single night.
“Creative projects do not make for
smooth sailing. The most stimulating
and rewarding projects are somewhat
like a roller coaster ride. You never
really know where the dips, twists,
and turns will come. You have to
enjoy the challenge and feel confident
I your ability to stay the ride through
to the end. Like the turtle, project
managers make significant progress
only when they stick their necks out.”
