Your personal goals need a long-term strategy. It's no secret that we're pushed to the limit. Today's professionals feel rushed, overwhelmed, and perennially behind. How can we break out of the cycle and create the kind of interesting, meaningful lives that we all seek? Just as CEOs who optimize for quarterly profits often fail to make the strategic investments necessary for long-term growth, the same is true in our own personal and professional lives. As top business thinker and Duke University professor Dorie Clark explains, we all know intellectually that lasting success takes persistence and effort. And yet, so much of the relentless pressure in our culture pushes us toward doing what's easy, what's guaranteed, and what looks glamorous in the moment. In The Long Game, she argues for a different path. It's about doing small things over time to achieve your goals—and being willing to keep at them, even when they seem pointless, boring, or hard. In The Long Game, Clark shares unique principles and frameworks, as well as her own instructive experiences, to show how you can tap the same twenty-four hours everyone has—but leverage them in more efficient and powerful ways to break out of the frenetic day-to-day routine and transform your life and career.
