What are you doing to grow yourself as a leader?
There are a few themes I tend to repeat here on 3QL, and the need to grow always makes the list. Because if we don’t grow, how can we expect the people around us to grow?
One of the ways I try to keep myself growing is by consuming books. I’m in the middle of 3-4 books right now (yes, I have commitment issues), but I want to share one that has sparked my interest greatly.
Carey Nieuwhof is a thought leader when it comes to leadership. If you aren’t subscribed to his blog or following him on social, I would encourage you to do that right away. Carey experienced burn out a few years ago, has been able to recover in a healthy way, and just released a book titled At Your Best sharing how he rescheduled his day to increase his productivity. It’s been a fascinating read and extremely thought provoking exercise for me over the past couple weeks. I thought I would pass it along.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes so far:
“Workaholism is, after all, the most rewarded addiction in the nation.”
“Stop saying you don’t have the time. Start admitting you didn’t make the time.”
“Balanced people don’t change the world. Passionate people do.”
“If you don’t declare a finish line to your work, your body will.”
