Availability: Ready to download

If you have ever felt like you just don’t fit, this book will change your life. Know your long-term goals, work hard (very, very hard), and stay the course in the face of all obstacles until you reach your goal. This is the commonly accepted formula for fulfilling goals and dreams. But what if we have it exactly backwards? While this standard formula works for some it fails If you have ever felt like you just don’t fit, this book will change your life. Know your long-term goals, work hard (very, very hard), and stay the course in the face of all obstacles until you reach your goal. This is the commonly accepted formula for fulfilling goals and dreams. But what if we have it exactly backwards? While this standard formula works for some it fails for far too many. Then there are those who buck the formula and triumph on their own terms. They are called dark horses. Researchers Todd Rose and Ogi Ogas have studied these dark horses, and in this groundbreaking book, use the experiences of these mavericks to demonstrate that there is a different and better formula for success. The Dark Horse Project was born at the Harvard Graduate School of Education to research alternative paths to excellence. Dark horses demonstrate that the secret to personal accomplishment is not dependent on connections, money, or standardized test scores. The secret is a special mindset that empowers them to consistently make the right choices to fit their circumstances and complement their unique interests and abilities. The philosophy behind this mindset is simple: it is not the pursuit of excellence that leads to fulfillment but rather the pursuit of fulfillment that leads to excellence. Dark Horse reveals the five elements of this mindset that have been road-tested by a wide array of individuals nurturing every manner of aspiration. No matter where you are in your career, Rose and Ogas show how the dark horse mindset can guide you to a life of purpose, authenticity, and achievement.

    4.5 Building on his previous book "The End of Average," Dark Horse lays out an alternate worldview from which to approach talent - life - development, sharing results from Rose and Oga's study of "women and men who achieved impressive success even though nobody saw the coming."

Moving past the critique of standardization ("The Standardization Covenant") to a mindset based on the science of individuality where every person has talent, the authors propose the "Dark Horse Covenant," based on the belief that there are endless varieties of merit and infinite pathways to fulfillment. They present four practical guidelines to personalizing your way to fulfillment, each of which have potentially powerful implications for education redesign work committed to learner-centered practices.

    I don't have too much time to write anything significant right now, but I enjoyed this book immensely. It gave me several ideas that I would like to apply and further consider in order to better my own life and, perhaps, help me find that sense of direction in my life that makes me feel fulfilled. (I do plenty of things I enjoy. I just haven't figured out how to tie them together into something fulfilling and unique.) I would say, though, that after about the 54% mark (the interlude section forwa I don't have too much time to write anything significant right now, but I enjoyed this book immensely.

(I do plenty of things I enjoy. I just haven't figured out how to tie them together into something fulfilling and unique.) I would say, though, that after about the 54% mark (the interlude section forward), the material felt less useful. That's not to say it was completely worthless, just that it had less of an impact on me than the first 50% or so. Overall, though, it was a very good book. One of the best "self-help" books I've ever read. Very well-written and intelligently laid out. I didn't feel like the author was underestimating my intelligence or padding the book with useless/insignificant examples. Everything came together very nicely and felt like it had a purpose.

    While success may mean different things to different people in all walks of life, Dark Horse presents a new and refreshing perspective that helps demystify a stereotyped, rigid formula for perceived success (and its pitfalls) and a deeply ingrained formula for life-long happiness pursuing success through knowing one's own micro-motives, choices and trial and error strategies in pursuit of fulfillment to attain excellence, namely the standardization mindset vs. the so-called dark horse mindset as While success may mean different things to different people in all walks of life, Dark Horse presents a new and refreshing perspective that helps demystify a stereotyped, rigid formula for perceived success (and its pitfalls) and a deeply ingrained formula for life-long happiness pursuing success through knowing one's own micro-motives, choices and trial and error strategies in pursuit of fulfillment to attain excellence, namely the standardization mindset vs. the so-called dark horse mindset as the authors vigorously advocate in the book, starting with a fundamental change of the standardization covenant that currently prevails the education system.

    Quite good. The book explains how there is a better way to motivate people than picking a passion and going to school for it and climbing the ladder. It's by following your micro-motives. It helps you realize what motivates you isn't so much a passion as it is your micro-motives. This book feels like a career help book that doesn't give help in what step to take next but instead imbues you with these knowledge to determine what step you want based on your desires and is a real quest for fulfillm Quite good.

It all sounds a little self-absorbed. Maybe it works?

    The concept of micro-motives was especially interesting. Dark Horse gave me a new way to think about what I find fulfilling and how to go about doing it.

    Another great book by Todd Rose to force you to think differently about achievement, measurement and happiness.

    Lots of food for thought, but misses the mark in certain areas as I write about in the "progress update" notes.

    Very thorough book but I found myself less interested in all the stories that were presented to support their argument. I wanted more advice on success and less examples.
