"We've mastered the art of living with goals and what has it gotten us? More commitments, more obligations - and much less time to be playful, loving and alive. What if we could let go of our goals - and our belief that without them we are nothing - and open ourselves to even more productive and fulfilling experiences?" "The process of doing this is what James Ogilvy describes. One of a rare breed of full-time philosophers working in business, Ogilvy shows how the need for Authority runs so deep that we are often unaware of its existence. This internal taskmaster determines goals for us - even against our deepest wishes." "Ogilvy shows how to navigate the fertile and frightening territory between mindless obedience and abject aimlessness. He explores how lovers, ideologues, executives and philosophers, from Plato to Nietzsche, have at one time or another lived brilliantly without goals. Goallessness is a new method of achieving personal creativity and freedom by fashioning one's day-to-day life not as a goal in a larger goal-producing machine, but as a personal work of art."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
