Take the Stairs

In his new book, Take the Stairs, Seven Steps to Achieving True Success (Perigee Trade, $23), author and motivational speaker Rory Vaden reminds us that self-discipline is the key to achieving success in all aspects of our lives. Procrastination, lack of focus, acceptance of the “average” and incomplete commitment are all enemies of self-discipline that get in the way of our creating our best selves. This book is a quick read and an inspiring reminder that what seems to be the easy way in the short term can end up being harder in the long term.

Twenty minutes after showtime, the Oregonian folk-rocker joined his four-piece band as the sold-out crowd jumped to its feet. After the first song, “Fire & Rain,” Kearney asked the crowd if they were awake. Perhaps weary from their long drive to Aliante Station, the crowd seemed slow to energize. But by the fourth song, they had—rising to their feet, clapping their hands and singing along to the lyrics of “Down.” In turn, Kearney ran through the showroom, slapping high-fives and hugging audience members.
