Our lives are a series of experiments--investments of resources that test the world around us--and we can do our experiments either poorly or well. Smart Experiments empower us to achieve more favorable outcomes and greater success. Whether we're pursuing a personal mission or inventing the future for a start-up or established organization, How We Succeed allows us to see our actions in a new light and do our best experiments to achieve and succeed more.

From the Author:


Have you ever wondered why some people succeed more than others?


This is the way that How We Succeed starts, and it's the question that the book answers.

Steve Gold wrote How We Succeed over a period of three years and based on more than 20 years of academic and practical research, including his work as an entrepreneur, Professor, educational consultant and Director of one of the leading college accelerator programs in the country. In this groundbreaking book, he shares why some people achieve and succeed more than others. The book is written in a clear and accessible way that includes many helpful diagrams and illustrations. It's intended to be read quickly and easily understood so its lessons can benefit us right away.

While there are three factors that drive sustained achievement and success (experiments, relationships and expertise), How We Succeed focuses on experiments.

The book answers the following questions:

  1. What are experiments and why do we do them?
  2. How does the way we do experiments affect our destinies?
  3. What's the difference between a poorly done and a well done experiment?
  4. What's a Smart Experiment and what are its four steps?
  5. What key lessons can we learn from all of this?
How We Succeed is unique because it isn't based on success stories, but instead thousands of hours studying people's behaviors in real-time, including analysis of their successes and failures and deep knowledge of the underlying psychology (the author is also a M.D.). By taking this approach, Steve Gold doesn't just share what successful people do well -- which is an important aspect of this book because in many cases unsuccessful people do the same things -- he shares what successful people do differently. Then he goes on to discuss Smart Experiments, what they are and how all of us can do them. The book uses wonderful diagrams and illustrations to walk us through the process and share the concept in an engaging and useful way.

The goal of How We Succeed is to help all of us understand the power of experiments; see that we can choose whether to do our experiments poorly or well; and learn how to do Smart Experiments. Based on this, we can all achieve and succeed more over the long run.
