A Message to Garcia: And Other Essential Writings on Success (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2009)

Elbert Hubbard was that rarest of beings–a philosophical businessman. In 1895 he founded the Roycrofters, a community of artisans selling handcrafted goods. A prolific author, he was a favorite of Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, and other great leaders of his time.

A Message to Garcia is Hubbard’s most famous work. In it, he argues that the greatest hero is the man who simply does his job, completing the task no matter what the obstacles. Within Hubbard’s lifetime, the Message was reprinted more than any book besides the Bible.

This edition, compiled by Charles Conrad of SuccessBooks.net, also includes Hubbard’s essays on “Mental Attitude,” “Initiative,” “Ability,” and other qualities essential to success.

Elbert Hubbard was one of the most interesting American characters of his time. He had a rare faculty of expression and he used it to serve the cause of common sense in this country.”  Henry Ford

My 10 Favorite TED (and TEDx) Talks

#1 Juliet Doherty--"Be Great!"

It still amazes me how many people have not heard of TED or TEDx. TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Here are my 10 Favorite TED or TEDx Talks:

  1. Juliet Doherty: Be Great!
  2. Joi Ito: Want to innovate? Become a “now-ist”
  3. Steve Jobs: How to live before you die
  4. Sir Ken Robinson: How schools kill creativity
  5. Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability
  6. Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius
  7. Jill Bolte Taylor: Stroke of insight
  8. Daniel Pink: The puzzle of motivation
  9. John Wooden: The difference between winning and succeeding
  10. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Flow, the secret to happiness

I hope you will find some spark of inspiration in these talks. Please share your favorites and help spread these ideas.
