News & Opinion: Srikumar Rao/Are You Ready To Succeed? Interview

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:02 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In this interview, I talk with Srikumar Rao, author of Are You Ready to Succeed?: Unconventional Strategies for Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life.

This book is about deep, heady things. It is about how your perception of reality shapes everything. It is about how the mental chatter in your head drives your decision-making. It is about finding joy in all aspects of your life.

Srikumar says he wrote the book as "an instrument to bring about profound change, and it will only happen if you invest a good deal of time and emotional energy into doing the exercises [in the book]".

I am really encourage you to listen to this one.
