It’s not how good you are. It’s how good you want to be

Posted on: February 20, 2014


It has been quite sometimes that I last read and shared the book” How to get things done without trying too hard” in September 13. I went to library to pick a book to read during the Chinese New Year festive, and I found this little paperback book with huge prints and pictures in it. Title of this book is called “It’s not how good you are, It’s how good you want to be.” By Paul Arden. What attracts me to borrow this book is at the back of the book describe ” … ‘Bible’ for the talented and timid to make the unthinkable thinkable and the impossible possible”. It sounds great right!

After completed reading the book, there are a few points which I think will be great for me to share. Firstly, having a goal is not enough, you must have a vision of where, who and how great you want to be. Would you like to be the best in the field or best in the world? How far would you like to aim to reach which could make the unthinkable thinkable and the impossible possible during the process as nothing is impossible.

Next pointer is don’t be afraid to share your knowledge to others. Often most people would afraid to share their knowledge to others as they are afraid he or she might overtake them one day. Here, Paul’s view is by sharing your knowledge to others, you will left with nothing and will indirectly forces yourself to look, aware and replenish new knowledge instead. This way, you will obtain more knowledge than compare to others.

This book is certainty a super quick read books that I read so far. It takes about 30mins to an hour depending how fast you could read. Even though some of the pointers mentioned do share the same with other authors, I do think it is still worthwhile reading as could enrich my knowledge within such a short time!
