In my speeches I am forever asking my audiences to take inventory of their skills, asking if there was anything they learned during all their years of school that could help them to change their lives for the better if they were to begin to apply that special ability immediately, regardless of their present condition, occupation or age.
Then, as dramatically and forcefully as I can, I remind my listeners that they all learned how to read, and with that talent alone they can work miracles with their lives if they wish.
-Og Mandino ~ Secrets for Success and Happiness
I’ve embarked on a new personal development path. I will start one new book, early each Monday morning, before I leave for work. If it’s good I’ll finish it that week. I’ll need your suggestions on what books to read because I’ll obviously need to find 52 new good books to read every year! I used to feel when I started a new book that I always had to finish it. Bad books slowed me down. Now, if it’s a bad book I’ll just move on and start a new book the next week. I figure my time is too valuable. I “just say no” to bad books. I feel no compulsion to finish them.
This week I’ve been reading a great book called TopGrading: How Leading Companies Win by Hiring, Coaching and Keeping the Best People by Bradford D. Smart. I HIGHLY recommend it. What do you recommend?
“What we become depends on what we read after all manners of professors have done their best for us. The true university of today is a collection of books.”
