Top 10 Books : ICMS – Success is NOT Logical
We all face trials and troubles. The most successful, happiest people in the world are therefore not ones who escape trouble but know how to bounce back from a traumatic event … death in the family, loss of a job, sickness, disappointment. Gordon’s book is a permanent addition to my library and on my Top 10 list.
The primary intended audience for this book is young pastors. If you know one, buy this book for them. They will be eternally grateful. It contains great wisdom and discernment from a successful, seasoned, 60+ year old pastor. If you’re not a pastor, this book provides great insight, stories and ideas to improve any man’s life.

I lacked an easy way of explaining the difference in mission and why. Darren Hardy solved that for me on page 63 of The Compound Effect: If I invite you to walk a 10 inch by 30 foot board for $20, you’d likely do it. If I made the same offer but the board now connects two 100-story buildings, you’d likely not do it. But if the other building is on fire and your child is in it, you’d cross the board for free. The former is money-power. The latter is why-power.
Peter Drucker once said that great consultants don’t know all the answers. They simply ask great questions. This book focuses on one big question “What’s the one thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
