Growth: The disciplined pursuit of excellence

Growth is about pursuing excellence. It’s about stepping up when a challenge is bigger than ourselves, instead of stepping back. It’s about stepping forward, even when we think we’re not ready. It’s about a fostering relentless determination to improve, to learn, to develop, and to progress personally, even if slowly. It’s also the natural outcome of the best objectives.

This is the book Essentialism, which we mentioned in the session. It’s all about the disciplined pursuit of less. It’s about how (and why) we should stop saying yes to everything, and start saying no to things. It’s about how to focus, and how by doing so, you end up in your highest state of contribution. It’s a fantastic book for every context you are considering optimizing.

This is the book Switch, that we discussed so much in the session. It’s all about how to change, when change is hard. It breaks down change efforts into three primary categories… how to direct the rider, how to motivate the elephant, and how to shape the path. Each of those three sections are broken down into three action steps. It’s filled with examples and illustrations that really help you understand how to put each to work. Wonderful book, probably one of my top 5.
