"We all have reservoirs of life to draw upon of which we do not dream.”
William James (1842-1910), philosopher and "Father of American psychology"
The resources listed below have been curated from a seminar that I've taught to graduate students at Carnegie Mellon called Grit and The Path to Superhuman Performance as well as what's directly benefitted my outlook and results in a tangible way. Some of them have withstood the test of time while others teeter on the cutting edge of modern science and technology. Clicking on any of the books will bring you to Amazon where you can learn more and decide if it's worth your investment.
