Friday Filosophy #2015-35

For our Friday Filosophy #2015-35 I want to give you all a quick peek at what we do in our classrooms.  In nearly every one of our learning classes I ask for definitions of three words: ignorance, stupidity and insanity.

There is a lot of hemming and hawing but ultimately we get to the end.

Ignorance is not knowing what to do.

Stupidity is know what to do and not doing it.

Insanity is continuing to do what you have always done expecting different results.

Pretty straightforward, I think.

How can we know what to do if we don’t read? So today rather than put out quotations to stimulate your thinking I am going to give you some authors that you should be reading.

Patrick Lencioni. This man has been extremely busy with ten or so books to his name. All of them are great reads and very insightful. Try “The Three Signs of a Miserable Job” and “The Five Dysfunctions of team.”

The second author is Clayton Christenden. Two books come to mind with this author; “How Will You Measure Your Life” and “The Innovator’s Dilemma.”

Finally are three individual books; Bold: How To Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World and finally Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think.

Fall is a wonderful season for reading. I hope you take some time and get these books and continue with your personal development.

The time is now.
