The FIRST thing you need to do as a leader is R E A D!
Yes, READ! This is so important for leaders new and old. If you don’t like to read, listen to an audiobook. I recommend using Audible but you could even use your local libraries app to listen too. However, nothing really replaces that trusted, go-to hard copy book. Something you can easily reference, markup and bookmark. You’ll want to be able to make notes and highlight what sticks out to you.
Go back and read those books that really fed you and affected you. Read them once a month or once a quarter. Keep them handy when you find they really do motivate you! Depending on where you are at today, you may be in a different place than when you read it the first time. You may take away messages that you didn’t get the first or second time reading it! Reread these books!
I still read Go Pro once a quarter. I used to read it once a month… But now it’s once a quarter. I love, love, love the book Motivation Manifesto. And I really got a lot from the book On Fire. Currently, I am reading the 5 Second Rule AGAIN. It’s fabulous with a lot of takeaways.
Read, Read, and Read some more!!
