May I strongly encourage you to read Orrin Woodward‘s latest blog, Leaders are LIFE-time learners; but please watch the attached video as well. We’ve heard the saying “All leaders are readers, but not all readers are leaders.” As Orrin says ‘for leaders, reading is a non-negotiable’. So let me ask just 2 simple questions:
1. Are you in the habit of reading? and
2. What are you reading?
I was struck watching that video as he described reading a book by legendary coach John Wooden, that one could glean the highlights of his (then) 91 years of successful living, and get it all in a one time purchase of a 16 dollar book! Talk about bang for the buck.
But then it hit me. We have the highlights of one of the top leadership (if not THE top ) minds in the world recently write a book, namely “Resolved: 13 resolutions for life“, that captures and packages his thoughts on how to think like he does, which in turn, could lead us toward the results he has. Yet some of us won’t take the time to read it, OR, we will read something of no lasting significance. Alas, as always, it’s our choice. Choose wisely.
God Bless, John Graff
