Successful People are Different

28 Feb 2011

The Harvard Business Review has shared its latest insights about the secrets of successful people. The maxims include such gems as ‘be specific’ and ‘build your willpower muscle’: I guess that’s the best one could hope for from a PhD in motivational psychology.

Kind of reminds me of McSweeney’s version of the 7 habits of highly successful people:

  1. Skiing
  2. Yachting
  3. Snorkeling
  4. Golf
  5. Polo
  6. Dinner parties
  7. Shopping

Successful people ARE different. They’re successful.
