Every Friday I post a short list of the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:
Here’s what I’m reading right now:
The 46 Rules of Genius by Brian K. Dodd. First of all, be sure you’re subscribed to Brian’s blog. He regularly posts some very good stuff and his weekly top 10 Leadership posts refers to lots of great writing.
An Rare Interview with Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling over on Phil Cooke’s blog. I loved the Twilight Zone and this interview with Rod Serling was recorded before his enormous success.
3 Facts to Wrestle If You Want to Grow as a Leader by Tony Morgan. I’ve always thought Tony’s writing and strategic leanings were strong. There’s a couple ideas in this post that are very, very good.
How to Handle Interruptions by Dan Reiland. When I grow up, I want to be like Dan Reiland.
5 Unfair Criticisms People Levy At Strategic Church Leaders by Carey Nieuwhof. As usual…so good!
Designed to Lead: The Church and Leadership Development by Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck. Technically…I’m re-reading this book. Very strong and helpful. You can read my review right here.
Here’s what I’m listening to:
David Allen on Getting Strategic with Personal Productivity on the Entreleadership Podcast. An excellent interview and a number of good insights into productivity.
Tim Ferris on Making the Most of Our Lives on the EntreLeadership Podcast. Super interview. Great stuff.
Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track – and Keeping It There by Les McKeown. I’m testing out Audible for absorbing an additional book every month.
Quote I’m wrestling with:
“What would have to be true for that approach to work?” Roger Martin.
App I’m using:
I’m committed this year to increasing my effectiveness. Nozbe is a leading productivity app. First heard about it from Michael Hyatt. It’s already making a big difference.
My own post I hope you’re reading:
Is Point of View Hiding the Answer to Your Problem? So often, we’re working under some false assumptions. This post is about the power of new perspective; new point of view.
Just added Mike Foster to GroupLife Southwest ’17!
That’s right! We’ve just added Mike Foster, author, speaker and founder of The People of the Second Chance to our program! His work has been very well received over the last several years (Freeway, Wonderlife, his new book People of the Second Chance).
Also, we rolled back prices to $124.95, but it’s only good til midnight Monday, February 20th. Hope you don’t miss a great price on the best small group ministry conference this year.
