I was one of those on the fence (Heck, I was playing golf no where near the fence), but you hooked me. I have read more this year than I have in the past 10. It becomes addictive. Once you begin to learn, you want to continue. Books I have read in the past month or 2:
“Drive” – Daniel Pink
“It’s not what your sell, It’s what you stand for” – Roy Spence
“Life is tremendous” – Charlie Jones
“Rework” – Founders of 37 Signals
Lincoln on Leadership" – Donald Phillips
and I am currently reading “The go Giver” by Bob Burg.
Each book has brought something into my being that was not there before. As Charlie T. Jones says, you will be the same 5 years from now except for the people you meet and the books you read. Truer words were never spoken.
When I was a law enforcement officer in Arizona, there was this Juvenile Detention Triage Officer that reminds me of your Dad. I still remember him telling the kids being processed in…“read everything you get your hand on in here, even the toothpaste tube.” He was great man he turned a few around.
I hear you Dennis. I have read more in the past year than I have in the past decades. And it just makes you hungry for more. Thanks for including you reading list. There’s a couple on there that I need to add to my pile:-)Thanks for your comment!
I like that Austin, that’s a good one. He was a wise man indeed:-) Hopefully some heeded his input!
