Cheap Smell of Success
The red book on the bargain shelf at Barnes & Noble caught my eye.
Unexpected Strategies for Success! Promised the cover.
That's for me! I thought. My climb to the top has been more like a dash up a down running escalator. Expending effort, yet sliding backwards and looking foolish.
Perhaps this book would steer me to the right escalator. Or a stairs. I could learn how to be more productive! Indispensable! Worthy!
I bought the book.
The irony hit me as I pried away the discount label.
If this author knew so much about success, why was her book in the discount pile?
