The fablelike narrative follows David, a young man floundering in his first job out of college. After a difficult meeting with his boss, he finds a note abandoned by a mysterious young woman, warning him, “Your success is only possible if you avoid the nine mistakes.” It is signed by a well-known philanthropist. Over the following days, David meets a number of accomplished people known by generic titles (the Old Man, the Trainer, the Bartender), each of whom discusses falling prey to one of the titular mistakes:

  1. Working on someone else’s dream.
  2. Allowing someone else to define your value.
  3. Accepting excuses
  4. Surrounding yourself with the wrong people.
  5. Staying in your comfort zone.
  6. Allowing temporary setbacks to become personal failures.
  7. Blending in instead of standing out.
  8. Thinking there is a fixed and limited amount of success available.
  9. Believing you have all the time in the world.

If you have something still to learn — and, no matter what your age, you should — you may get something out of this book that can change the way you approach success.
