Focus and determination are the subjects of this 1921 parable about a 'never-say-die' salesman who is given a challenge and gets it done. The premise of being tested by a strict boss and succeeding may seem outdated. But by applying the timeless lessons in this parable, employees at all levels will learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.

Review: The Go-Getter (a Story That Tells You How to Be One)

User Review  - Amy - Goodreads

This was given to me by the new president. It's a very pedestrian account of a WWI veteran who accomplishes an outlandish task. The entire theme of this short story is do what the boss says regardless of the consequences or true purpose--don't ask questions, just take orders and make it happen. Read full review

Amazing tale of how important sheer will cab be. "It will be done" is an amazing motto especially this day and age. Fantastic parable for those young, hungry, and early in the work force. Read full review
