Through 25 years of teaching Stanford University's famed Personal Creativity in Business course, Michael Ray discovered that people who move beyond ordinary success and achievement have a secret. They live for a highest goal that drives them to accomplish their dreams, find fulfillment, and become generative leaders.

Michael Ray. The Highest Goal. I’ve been on the trail of this discovery for several decades, distilling the essence of insights gleaned from twenty-five years of teaching the Personal Creativity in Business course at Stanford University. The journey hasn’t always been a direct one. The world has changed dramatically since I began teaching the course.

The Highest Goal will lead you to your greatest rewards. As an alum of Michael Ray's first creativity course, I have benefited for 25 years from his revolutionary and refreshing insights. Here, Ray develops the deeper meaning of his teachings so you can discover and pursue your highest goal. Enjoy this valuable opportunity to find your calling and the true success it offers. Michael Ray introduces eight simple life steps in his book and reinforces these life steps with a powerful mechanism he refers to as heuristics or "rules of thumb for insight and learning. What is truly powerful about these heuristics is that they are quite simple to understand and, of even greater importance, they are easy to put into practice on Monday morning-in business or in our personal lives. I believe this book can easily change the life of anyone who puts these eight life steps and heuristic "live-withs" into practice.

Throughout the book, Ray offers exercises, stories, and reflections that will help you get in touch with your highest goal, follow a path in tune with it, and let it inform every aspect of your life. Your highest goal is a source of power and wisdom that can vastly improve not only your own life, but the lives of everyone around you. Ray shows us how to open this inner font of creativity, compassion, and courage.

The Highest Goal guides you with a distinctive set of "live-withs" or credos that you can use to translate your highest goal into a new way of living. These principles can transform your life. The Highest Goal will lead you to your greatest rewards.

book by James C. Collins. Michael Ray's "Creativity in Business" class was the most influential course I took as an MBA student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (or anywhere else for that matter). The life-changing insight I drew from his class was that my own inner Voice of Judgment (VOJ) is the only obstacle to my becoming the person I am meant to be by doing the work I am meant to do.

Michael Ray explains that it is this ultimate goal, rather than worldly goals such as prestige or money, that is the true motivator of all successful people. Throughout the book, Ray offers exercises, stories, and reflections that help us to get in touch with our highest goal, follow a path in tune with it, and let it inform every aspect of our lives.

I recently read on Google that a thousand books are published every day in the United States. However, in my opinion, there are only a very few that are personally transformational or life changing. My short list of books that changed my thinking or made me sit up and take notice includes:

"The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck
"The Art of Selfishness" by David Seabury
"Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning" by Viktor E. Frankl
"Ideas Have Consequences" by Richard M. Weaver
"Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom
"Witness" by Whittaker Chambers
"Guide for the Perplexed" by E.F. Schumacher
"The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" by Dan Millman
"Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius
"The Lessons of History" by Will Durant
"Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill
"The Richest Man in Babylon" by George S. Clason
+ any books by Mortimer Adler and Eric Hoffer.

Now, I can add one more title to my list:--"The Highest Goal" by Michael Ray.

As a book junkie and an avid reader, I have skimmed and read many books, sometimes three or four times. Many of them have provided some wonderful insights and some new wisdom, but seldom does a book capture on every page profound thoughts and ideas of value. "The Highest Goal", in my opinion, does just that. When I read it, I took the time to underline key phrases and words, and wrote my own thoughts and ideas in the margins as well. After I was done, I was amazed at the number of entries I had made. For me, that is one important way to judge the value of a book. Moreover, the book is very well written in a clear and lucid style, and very well organized as well. Simple but quite profound, which is my highest accolade for a book.

I also call "The Highest Goal" a capstone book, which means for me, a book that brings together a lot of ideas under one framework. Michael Ray introduces eight simple life steps in his book and reinforces these life steps with a powerful mechanism he refers to as heuristics or "rules of thumb for insight and learning." What is truly powerful about these heuristics is that they are quite simple to understand and, of even greater importance, they are easy to put into practice on Monday morning--in business or in our personal lives. I believe this book can easily change the life of anyone who puts these eight life steps and heuristic "live-withs" into practice.

Here's my challenge to each of you. Buy the book, read it carefully, underline those ideas or thoughts that resonate with you, and in the margins write ideas or thoughts that are prompted by your reading. When you complete the book, I think you will be amazed at what has occurred. Michael Ray is a voice of value and his book is one to be shared with family, friends, and business colleagues. I would love to hear back from anyone who reads it. [...]

This book is based on the author's acclaimed Personal Creativity in Business class, which he taught at Stanford University for 25 years to the likes eBay entrepreneur Jeff Skoll and Good to Great bestselling author Jim Collins. But it's not another business management book, or even a book on how to tap your creativity.

Instead, Ray reveals the secret that all the successful people he taught ultimately attributed their success to - living their life connected and committed to their "highest goal." Essentially, your highest goal is the aspiration that gives meaning to your life, motivates and sustains you. Aligning your efforts with it will help you accomplish your dreams and find fulfillment. Ray suggests exercises to to identify it, then helps you better integrate it into your life based on your key challenges. His "live-withs" are simple but powerful tools for shifting your thinking and actions so you can benefit from living with your highest goal every day.

What you should know....to some, the title and cover photo may imply a very "new age-y" type book. While there is a little of that, the book overall takes a very practical approach to the subject.
