"The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again illuminates how we can elevate ourselves and others to unexpected heights. We live in a world that's obsessed with talent. We celebrate gifted students in school, natural athletes in sports, and child prodigies in music. But admiring people who start out with innate advantages leads us to overlook the distance we ourselves can travel. We underestimate the range of skills that we can learn and the amount of ground that we can gain. When opportunity doesn't knock, there are ways to to build a door. Hidden Potential offers a new framework for reaching aspirations and exceeding expectations. Realizing potential isn't about being a workaholic or a perfectionist. What matters most is not how hard we work, but how well we learn. It's not about being a genius-growth depends more on developing character skills than cognitive skills. The character skills that propel progress include the proactivity to absorb and adapt to new information, the courage to embrace discomfort, and the determination to find the beauty in imperfections. Mastering those skills doesn't require us to find the one perfect mentor or expert coach to guide us. Often we just need to borrow a compass to begin charting our own path. And we can clear the path for more people by building better systems of opportunity in our schools, teams, and workplaces. Many writers have chronicled the habits of superstars who accomplish great things. This book breaks new ground by revealing how anyone can rise to achieve greater things. The true measure of your potential isn't the height of the peak you reach, but how far you climb to get there"--… (mais)

3.5 rounded up. This is quick and entertaining but nothing new or ground breaking. Just be curious, be willing to fail, and never stop learning. There are always others who will have a leg up on you, but that doesn't have to hold you back. That's the jist here. ( )

Nonfiction bookworms who have read a dozen or more self-help/personal growth books will discover that some concepts in Grant’s latest work have been covered before. I fall into this group of readers and agree with reviewers who suggest that “Hidden Potential” revisits a lot of familiar territory. Nevertheless, this engaging work offers fresh spins on achieving goals and serves up many intriguing anecdotes I’ve never heard before. For me, the most valuable aspect of the book is that it effectively reinforces some important strategies for success (most of us benefit from occasional reminders as we trudge down the twist-filled path toward self-improvement). Among the helpful tidbits:
 Perfection is a liability. Accept – and even appreciate – inescapable flaws. Grant touches on the ancient philosophy of wabi sabi that celebrates the beauty of imperfection.
 Don’t aim to be perfect. Aim for a clear and attainable target.
 Get comfortable being uncomfortable. It can help unlock new learning.
 The true measure of our potential is not the height of the peak we reach, but how far we’ve climbed to get there.
 Making progress isn’t always about moving forward. Sometimes it’s about bouncing back. Resilience is a form of growth.
 People typically judge our skills based on our best moments, not our worst. Let’s give ourselves the same leeway. (Example: The Bard wrote “Hamlet,” but he also penned many less-than-stellar works.)
In summary, “Hidden Potential” was well worth with the investment of time.
