We can't copy our way to success (2)

Two days ago I posted this. I said that many books suggest that if we study other successful companies or individuals and copy what they have done, we can be successful too. The book SUCCES BUILT TO LAST seems to do the same but this is not so. It explicitly states the following:
"Your enduring success is not about following anybody else's roadmap, goals, or achievements. It must be constructed on a foundation of very personal choices that only you can make. None of the people you will meet in the coming pages are being offered as folks you should imitate."
This is an interesting book. Maybe I will write some more about it soon.
