Fail forward

I recently heard about a book written by John Maxwell called Failing Forward. I haven't yet read the book, but when I heard the title, it immediately grabbed my attention. My mind started racing with several concepts of how I thought about “failing forward.” It was particularly timely as I had just had a project fail to work out, but was able to see it as a learning experience.

What would my replacement do?

I just attended the Chick-fil-A Leadercast event, which was very good. It was a simulcast presentation viewed live by 125,000 people with a goal of creating better leaders. It is an annual event that I would recommend: The presenters were very energizing, I picked up ideas for a few leadership and personal growth development books I want to read, and most importantly I came away with a new blog topic!

What “good” looks like

I just finished Steve Jobs’ biography, which is very good, and obviously he was a visionary and genius. I also recently read an article about managers attempting to adopt Steve Jobs' management style and techniques, including one CEO who even started wearing black turtlenecks.

The relentless tide

A client recently gave me a book called Younger Next Year (yes, I am turning 50 soon). It's a good book. It examines the “relentless tide” of physical decay that happens as you age. Thanks for the uplifting book, Mike! The good news is you can combat the tide with minimal deterioration (until age 80, the authors promise!) primarily through rigorous cardio and strength training.

Right effort

I was recently talking to someone who really needed to start putting more effort into their job, and it got me thinking about the concept of how much effort is enough. I thought back to my dad, whom I both give credit to and blame for making me as competitive as I am. In my childhood, whether it was school or sports, he was always asking me, "Did you try your best?"
