Find your passion
My first audible.com book and it was a great way to start. An interesting book that builds on the Good to Great concepts but applies it to the leadership traits of enduringly successful people. Whether you aspire to be this or not will not be changed by this book, but it does provide some great insight and self evaluation opportunities into what has truly driven successful people. It helped to bridge the gap between the hype in some books about finding your meaning in life and some real examples where this has occured. It will cause you to think about what you are passionate about and whether this drives enduring satisfaction in your life that could impact others. A mix of narrators in the book helped break it up and make it an enjoyable listen.

I listened to this prior to hearing Good to Great. It was a good introduction. The stories of successful business leaders are inspiring. It provides a treasure trove of anecdotes for business motivation.
