In Richer, Wiser, Happier, William Green draws on interviews that he’s conducted over twenty-five years with many of the world’s greatest investors.

Clearer, Closer, Better: How Successful People See the World

When it comes to setting and meeting goals, we may see—quite literally—our plans, our progress, and our potential in the wrong ways.

We can learn to leverage perceptual illusions if we know when and how to use them to our advantage.
