What's in Your Library?

Posted by Abe Quiring on Apr 29th 2020

I typically have 5 books in my queue at any one time.

It's not about the number of books I read, but the goal to become a better leader. Most of the books I read are centered around leadership, motivation and positivity. I am currently reading 'The Promise of a Pencil' by Adam Braun.This book chronicles Braun's journey to find his calling, as each chapter explains one clear step that every person can take to turn their biggest ambitions into reality. 

I was hoping to find a heart warming story of a person doing good. Not only did I find this, but a whole new way of thinking about our business and the importance of living/working with purpose. A few thoughts stuck with me while I was reading:

  • Through struggle, sacrifice, and service, staggering personal transformation is possible.
  • How would I react without the familiarity of my past dictating the steps of my future (don't be afraid to be alone)?
  • Listening intensely is a far more valuable skill than speaking immensely.
  • What do I love doing the most?
  • Spend your time maximizing purpose rather than profit.

I would encourage you to read this book and if that is not possible please visit Pencils of Promise.  May you all continue to flourish!
