Choosing Greatness
In the space between instinct and outcome, between reflex and reflection, between ordinary and extraordinary, lies choice. This optimistic, fast-paced book provides clear direction on the daily choices required to achieve exceptional outcomes, living your personal version of Greatness.
Accredited master coach Curtis writes out the road map to achieving greatness in this easy-to-follow debut. "Have you ever felt that there is another level of success available to you?” she asks, before sharing sensible advice on how to achieve it: how to break out of routine and habits, conquer feeling overwhelmed, and even enjoy the simplest pleasures of daily life. Readers will find a wealth of practical tools and tips, delivered in an engaging and interactive format,for reaching that next level in the workplace and in life.

Curtis breaks this guide into four parts, focusing on growth as "the perpetual finish line." Often drawing on illuminating personal anecdotes, she shares times in her life that pushed her to slow down, breathe, and direct her attention to the situation at hand to successfully come out on the other side, although she acknowledges that outcomes have not always been as easy as she expected. That down-to-earth attitude flavors every page, even when Curtis shares interviews with and advice from renowned business leaders, including Lara Merriken (founder of LÄRABAR), CEO at Jonathan Johnson, and Richard Branson, among others.

Filled with pull quotes and interactive graphics, Choosing Greatness is an engaging resource that invites readers to dig deeper into self-awareness and explore different perspectives on what success really means. Not intended as a short term fix, Curtis’s guide is suggested as a “lifelong companion” to “push yourself one step further, climb up one step higher, and make the choices that will have the greatest impact every step along the way.” Curtis ends each chapter with clear-eyed takeaways, explorative questions for self-reflection, and tasks that will help readers put her advice into practice. Those seeking inspiration on finding and then walking their own paths to greatness, however they define it, will find much to appreciate here.

Takeaway: An informative guide on changing ones' mindset, focusing on growth and choosing greatness.
