It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be by Paul Arden, Phaidon, 2003.

Looking for some motivation without resorting to cheesy self-help books? This well-designed pocket book is well worth the read. Some of my fave wise nuggets:
Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have.

Aim beyond what you are capable of. Try to do the things that you're incapable of.

Do not seek praise. Seek criticism.

If you can't solve a problem, it's because you're playing by the rules.
