Unlocking Your Success Equation, by Harvard Business Review

June 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

It all started when Jim “was a second-year student at the University of Sydney and the captain of the fencing team, Rupert Bligh, who was also a friend, asked if he wanted to go to Melbourne the next day to fence in the national university championships.”

“You’ve got to be mad,” Jim said. “I’ve never fenced in my life.”

Read the story of Jim Wolfensohn, a story full of unlikely outcomes, a look at how to view failure optimistically, and what just may be the secret equation to success.

The author of this article, Peter Bregman, is a strategic advisor to CEOs and the leadership teams. His most recent book is 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done.
