豆瓣评分: 8.1


Much of the advice we’ve been told about achievement is logical, earnest…and downright wrong. In Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Eric Barker reveals the extraordinary science behind what actually determines success and most importantly, how anyone can achieve it. You’ll learn: • Why valedictorians rarely become millionaires, and how your biggest weakness might actually be your greatest strength • Whether nice guys finish last and why the best lessons about cooperation come from gang members, pirates, and serial killers • Why trying to increase confidence fails and how Buddhist philosophy holds a superior solution • The secret ingredient to “grit” that Navy SEALs and disaster survivors leverage to keep going • How to find work-life balance using the strategy of Genghis Khan, the errors of Albert Einstein, and a little lesson from Spider-Man By looking at what separates the extremely successful from the rest of us, we learn what we can do to be more like them—and find out in some cases why it’s good that we aren’t. Barking Up the Wrong Tree draws on startling statistics and surprising anecdotes to help you understand what works and what doesn’t so you can stop guessing at success and start living the life you want.

@ TravisCao 精英日课解读:成功,是在一系列矛盾中做出艰难的选择。你是做个好学生,与人为善呢,还是做个极端学生,与体制为敌?你是现实一点,正确评估自己的能力呢,还是乐观一点,用讲故事的方法哄着自己坚持下去?你是科学评估各种方案再动手呢,还是无知无畏先动手再说?你是做个内向的人,专心做好一件事呢,还是做个外向的人,积极寻找新机会?你是个收入高又顾家的新好男人呢,还是沉迷工作只顾自己?成功不在于你手里有什么,而在于你愿意是你愿意放弃什么。幸福,成就,意义,遗产要权衡。 @ ❤. 如实表达想法 被人骂没有同理心太尖锐;顺着别人说 被嫌弃四平八稳太无趣。包袱太重活得累死。正反都要被人在背后内涵,随便去吧。
