We know that it takes hard work, talent and the occasional dose of luck for someone to make it to the top of their chosen field...but is that all? To find out we asked dozens of extraordinary people including celebrities, businessmen, artists and iconoclastic achievers, “How do you do what you do?” The result is our book “The Art of Doing: How Superachievers Do What They Do and How They Do It So Well” (Plume/Penguin Jan 2013). We talked to Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, actor Alec Baldwin, Freakonomics author Stephen Dubner, actress Laura Linney, rockers OK Go, startup king Bill Gross, wire walker Philippe Petit, business guru Guy Kawasaki and many more. We discovered that these superachievers, however diverse their goals, shared many fascinating qualities that contributed to their success. We’ll discuss what you can learn from their strategies, principles and tips and how you can apply them to your own work and personal life.
