Experience is the best teacher if only it didn't take so long! And if only you didn't have to suffer the consequences while learning your lessons. Now you don't. The answers - or many of them - are collected in the book you are holding in your hands. That's because Richard Edler has tracked them down - along with some of the questions that are worth knowing, worth posing, and worth pondering now. He's done so by consulting those in a position to know: successful business people, seasoned CEOs, and other modern-day contemplatives. To each he's posed a simple question: "What do you know now that you wish you knew twenty-five years ago?" The result is a compendium that will spare you 3,000 years of aggravating personal experience and may ward off a lifetime of "shoulda," "coulda," "woulda."
Hindsight is 20/20, but why wait twenty-five years for the clarity when it's yours for the taking? And unlike the uninvited advice of friends and family, it's also yours for the leaving. You can browse through this volume at your leisure - and your pleasure. But you can also put it down only to savor it another day. Don't cheat yourself! As one of the contributors explains: You are 100 percent responsible for your own happiness.
