A Message to Garcia: And Other Essential Writings on Success Kindle Edition
Elbert Hubbard was that rarest of beings--a philosophical businessman. In 1895 he founded the Roycrofters, a community of artisans selling handcrafted goods. A prolific author, he was a favorite of Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, and other great leaders of his time.
A Message to Garcia is Hubbard's most famous work. In it, he argues that the greatest hero is the man who simply does his job, completing the task no matter what the obstacles. Within Hubbard's lifetime, the Message was reprinted more than any book besides the Bible. Today, it is required reading at U.S. military academies.
This volume includes an introduction by Hubbard's personal assistant, Felix Shay, plus Hubbard's essays on "Mental Attitude," "Initiative," "Ability," and other qualities essential to success, making this the best available edition of the book.
This book is available in paperback, Audible audiobook, and Kindle e-book from Best Success Books.

It is one of the best books I’ve ever read and now get why, besides the Bible, it is the most publicized book ever. It is an “expresso” of wisdom and practical information for everyone who aspires to be . . . anything. It is for leadership, business owners, employers, employees, every race, every class; except maybe someone who is content with mediocrity. For all others, it will delightfully encourage and strengthen the direction you want to go.
It will be life changing!
Sip it slowly. Put it down often to properly savor its contents.
Then read it again, and again. Yes, it’s that kind of book.
If you are one who will deliver the "message to Garcia" without questioning, endangering your welfare or even life, without knowing what the message is, whether it is really important enough to warrant such risk, and without questioning the sender's motives for putting you into harm's way, you may be more worthy of a Darwin Award than an Employee Of The Month Award.
It comes down to efficiency, I think. When a decision is made to do something, just do it. If it works, the job is finished; if it doesn't you know immediately and can move on to the next best solution. But to stand and debate it just wastes everyone's time.
Garcia was a do-er and this short read makes an important point as to how necessary it is to have them in your camp.
