I was introduced to this book by a friend and mentor of mine, John Mackey (the CEO of Whole Foods). John is one of my deepest inspirations to live my ideals and create cool stuff that can make a true difference in the world. So, when he recommends an author/book, I pay attention.
With a Ph.D. from Yale in both Philosophy and Religion, Morris was one of the most popular professors at the University of Notre Dame before dedicating himself to his pursuits as an author, speaker, consultant and chairman of the Morris Institute for Human Values. His books blend the intellectual rigor of a former philosophy professor with the fun, uber-practical advice of a wise uncle. I love it.
If you resonate with this Note, I highly recommend the book and think you might also dig a few of Tom’s other books: , If Aristotle Ran General Motors and If Harry Potter Ran General Electric. He also wrote Philosophy for Dummies and you can follow his blog on the Huffington Post. :)
For now, let’s jump in and have some fun getting our wisdom on with a few of my favorite Big Ideas from this great book. We’ll start with a quick look at The 7 Cs of Success!
