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.
