Sales : Achieving Excellence

Here is an interesting article in the Harvard Business Journal Network, ” Six Keys to Being Excellent at Anything.” Author Tony Schwartz echoes research and recent books by Malcolm Gladwell in Outliers and Matthew Syed in Bounce : “it’s not inherited talent which determines how good we become at something, but rather how hard we’re willing to work.”

Schwartz lists six keys to achieving excellence. Here is the link to his article:
