Mark H. McCormack personally delivers a peak performance as often as physically possible. He rises at 4:30 a.m. to make overseas phone calls and dictate letters until 7 a.m. The rest of his day moves along in carefully orchestrated half-hour increments. Guided by a tight schedule, McCormack is never without his "list of things to do" and is never happier than when he is crossing things off it.
For years, McCormack's work as "the most powerful man in sports" (Sports Illustrated) has dictated that he move freely in international business circles and among the great sports champions of our time. He is a true insider and a keen observer of human nature. There is perhaps no one else on the American business scene today with the ability and knowledge to tell you more about 110 percent performance than Mark McCormack... the skilled negotiator... the elegant host... the hard-driving entrepreneur... the far-sighted businessman... the fascinating raconteur and?most important of all?the wise mentor.
Widely regarded as the creator of the sports marketing industry, McCormack is founder, CEO and chairman of International Management Group (IMG), of Cleveland, Ohio. The company, with 45 offices in 22 countries and over 1,000 employees, represents sports celebrities, creates sports programming for television, manages promoter sporting events, and is a marketing consultant to at least half of the Fortune 100.
IMG is also a publisher, a literary agency, manager of world renowned classical musicians, an international modeling and licensing agency, and a leader in providing personal financial planning.
McCormack is a graduate of William and Mary College and the Yale Law School. After accepting a position with a prestigious Cleveland law firm, he combined his business and legal skills with his lifelong passion for golf. In 1960, on a simple handshake agreement, he began managing the business affairs of a young golfer named Arnold Palmer, thereby launching IMG. McCormack is author of What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School, a best selling N-C audio program based on his book of the same title, and the follow-up audio program, What They Still Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School.

Dear Listener :
I used to believe that success in the corporate world was about all the success you needed. If you built a good career, earned enough money and enjoyed a solid business reputation, you had it made.
Well, I don't feel that way anymore.
Sure, I still believe in business success, but I see it as just one aspect of success in life. And it is success in life?comfort and confidence in dealing with others, enjoying a healthy self-esteem, knowing the joys of affection?that finally matters.
I hope you take that all-embracing definition of success seriously and?should you decide to do so ? devote 110 percent of your attention and energy to achieving it. You'll feel at your best when you're doing your best. With peak effort comes peak self-esteem. With peak concentration comes peak confidence. And with total involvement comes a sense of exaltation.
You can experience the thrill of 110 percent effort yourself. You can know the excitement and reward of holding nothing back. It just takes practice, discipline, a certain amount of knowledge, and a willingness to push yourself beyond what you think of as your personal limits.
To help you reach 110 percent performance, I'll share ideas, insights, approaches, do's and don'ts, strategies, tactics and examples with you. That's the avowed purpose of this audio-cassette program.
But in the final analysis, the 110 percent approach to life will only work if you love what you're doing. If you get great pleasure from your work, you'll achieve superlative performance both in business and in life. The key is to enjoy the process as well as the outcome.
