Filled with good questions, advice on listening and tips on saying no. I recommend this book for almost everyone including leaders, managers, parents and employees.
This is my first reading of a Seth Godin book, enjoyed in very much. It has insights on a variety of topics. His thoughts on the decision between better and safer was a significant ah-ha moment for me. Understanding that most people are looking for safer and not better is an important mental model I have incorporated into my thinking.
Well rounded book on prospecting and sales. I like the advice on leveraging text messaging and social media for prospecting. My favorite quote is "When you decide not to read; you are making the conscious choice to limit your growth and income."
Charlie Munger wrote a letter containing this list of Warren Buffett's eight reserved activities. My favorite one is: "His first priority would be reservation of much time for quiet reading and thinking, particularly that which might advance his determined learning, no matter how old he became." The post contains a list of all eight.
This is one of my best books of 2018. Short but highly concentrated. Almost every sentence left me wanting to take notes. My favorite quote and key takeaway from the book is "The ability to connect with others begins with understanding the value of people."
Contains both philosophical and tactical advice. Filled with stories and anecdotes from George's law enforcement career. The explanation in chapter 5 of three types of people, nice, difficult and wimps, was eye opening and helped me in my relationships with several people.
Personal review of my performance for last week. Including my top "ah-ha" lessons learned for the week.
