"Is there anything more boring than traditional self-help books? Thankfully Isaiah has written something untraditional here. The Science of Intelligent Achievement digs beneath the surface of what make measurable growth possible - identifying the patterns, processes and science behind being successful in any field. He does all of this while infusing each chapter with real world examples, humor, and a much needed dose of personal responsibility and hard truth."

"The Science of Intelligent Achievement unapologetically slapped me in the face by telling me what common mistakes ‘average’ people do and how these ‘average’ habits and actions are keeping me in a mediocre career and life. There is something fresh and simple about Isaiah’s ability to sugar-coat topics. This books is full of relatable stories and interesting facts that stay with you after you are done reading. I recommend this tough as nails self-help book to anyone who wants to evaluate their direction in life."

About the Book

Smart strategies for pragmatic, science-based growth and sustainable achievement.

The Science of Intelligent Achievement teaches you the scientific process of finding success through your most valuable assets:

  • Selective focus – how selective are you with who and what you let into your life?
  • Creative ownership – how dependent are you on others for your happiness and success?
  • Pragmatic growth – how consistently and practically are you growing daily?

This book will show you how to develop your focus by being very selective with where you spend your mental energy. You will also learn how to stop allowing your happiness and success to be dependent on other people and instead, start taking ownership over your life through creative work. Finally, you will learn the art of changing your life through pragmatic decisions and actions.

Achieving real success means you must focus, create, and grow daily. The Science of Intelligent Achievement will show you how.

"The key to success is learning the meta-language of learning. Learning how to learn. How to achieve peak performance in a difficult arena of life that requires mastering 100 micro-skills to become among the best in that field. Isaiah Hankel breaks down that meta-language, and shows us how, regardless of our life's mission, to quickly achieve mastery in whatever field of life inspires us."

"Reading this book is like a healthy punch in the gut. Many of us "top performers" present externally as having it all, when really, we're miserable inside chasing after someone else's version of success. Isaiah's gripping personal story is a harbinger of what can happen if you fail to listen to the voice inside reminding you of who you really are. His framework of selectivity, ownership, and pragmatism is one I wished I had when I was going through a similar time. If you're ready to reclaim your life, live it according to your own standards, and take back control, you need this book. I dare you to read it and not come out transformed."

"You can’t outwork a bad strategy. Isaiah Hankel wrote a scientifically proven playbook designed to help you focus on the things that matter. He delivers an actionable roadmap to help you focus on the things that truly matter. There's a saying that the wisest investment is wisdom, and The Science of Intelligent Achievement is full of it."

Jordan Harbinger

"The biggest advantage of reading The Science of Intelligent Achievement is the sense of personal responsibility the book provides. Most books in this category are either pure fluff in that they offer nothing but feel good nonsense about how to 'be grateful' and 'be nice', or they are written with the goal of absolving the reader or any fault in life. Here, Isaiah takes a completely different angle as he puts the responsibility of choosing your focus, creating something worthwhile in life, and continuing to grow pragmatically squarely on the reader's shoulders. Every page pushes you to take control rather than give up control, to actively choose what to spend your mental energy on rather than just 'letting go' and hoping for the best. It's a great read if you're up for the challenge of taking ownership over the good and bad in your life."
