IN THIS SUMMARY
In Driven, Razi Imam introduces the concept of Junoon, an ancient Arabic/Persian term that describes the obsession to achieve an impossible goal infused with a super-human level of motivation. The world’s foremost scientists, artists, creators and leaders of movements have all reached their personal pinnacle by tapping this powerful inner source of energy to achieve a seemingly impossible goal. Imam provides a context for his discussion of Junoon by revealing his own amazing personal story of ascension from a lowly dockworker in the port of Kuwait, to a self-taught physics student, to a computer scientist and successful entrepreneur in America. Along the way, he experienced Junoon as the driving force behind his ability to reach his dream against insurmountable odds.
