Overview

Tom Morris is the Notre Dame philosophy professor whose classes have become a campus legend and whose nationwide speaking engagements have brought a new ethics of excellence to the business world. Now he reveals in a wise and joyous book how the pursuit of true success leads to genuine achievement—and genuine happiness. He offers a framework for success that he calls “The 7 Cs”—seven basic concepts that are essential to meeting life’s challenges. And he creates realistic guidelines for putting our beliefs into practice and making our goals become realities.
 
He doesn’t just shed new light on old problems—he sheds old light on new problems, referring to the great thinkers of the past and revealing the continuing importance of their message in the world of today. With down-to-earth humor and honesty, Tom Morris offers us a renaissance of values—and possibility of deep, lasting fulfillment in work, love, and play.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This eclectic author, philosopher (Univ. of Notre Dame), composer, and rock guitarist joins a long list of others who write in a genre that appeals to New Age thinkers with substantial questions about life, work, and the topic of Morris's 13th book: success. Morris describes his seven Cs of success, which he relates to real-life situations, his personal remembrances, and exemplary anecdotes. The Cs are conception, confidence, concentration, consistency, commitment, character, and a capacity to enjoy the process along the way. Stephen Covey has sparked many imitators, and this is one of them; Morris's ideas are nothing but a rehash of Covey's solid The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People ( LJ 3/15/90). Recommended for general collections that do not own Covey's trendsetting tomes. See the preceeding review of Stephen Covey & others' First Things First for an assessment of his latest work.--Ed.-- Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
