The Ultimate Life List Guide

With a foreword from Gary P. Latham, Secretary of State Professor of Organizational Effectiveness, Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.

This groundbreaking book is the first to explain how the new science of Positive Psychology intersects with goal-setting research to help people set and achieve life list goals. Happy people have a strong sense of personal agency, and they tend to set harder and more challenging goals, which gets them more of what they want in life. Learn how to develop your own sense of self-efficacy, create powerful mastery experiences, and use your environment to work for you and not against you.
