31: 31 Days to Becoming a Better Leader

Day #31 - Continuing Improvement   Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers. -Harry Truman  Read good books with a highlighter in your hand. Mark the passages that stand out. Put the book away and read others. Come back to this book sometime in the future and have a different color highlighter in your hand. Notice that you highlight different passages than you did previously. You are ready to learn something new that you weren’t ready to learn the last time you read that book. Repeat this periodically to learn new things and to remember what you have forgotten since the last reading. Gather knowledge and apply the learning. Don’t just acquire facts uselessly. Practice what you learn and take notes in your journal about the results. Review your journal frequently and you will learn from yourself.    Leadership Resources *   Leadership Modules: The Unbound Leader: Unlocking Your Inner Potential https://synervision.kartra.com/page/unboundleader    Books: Extraordinary Relationships: A New Way of Thinking About Human Interactions (Roberta Gilbert) http://amzn.to/HuEHlG Master Leaders: Revealing Conversations with 30 Leadership Greats (George Barna) http://amzn.to/HxjfLS Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life (Henry Cloud and John Townsend)  http://amzn.to/HVFjQn As A Man Thinketh (James Allen) http://amzn.to/MQk1qD Think and Grow Rich (Napoleon Hill) http://amzn.to/1teERAl Twist: How Fresh Perspectives Build Breakthrough Brands (Julie Cottineau) http://amzn.to/2cBWjx9 Platform: How to Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Michael Hyatt) http://amzn.to/2cwxAxe Meeting the Shadow: The Hidden Power of the Dark Side of Human Nature (Connie Zweig and Jeremiah Abrams) https://amzn.to/2UaUYBx Owning Your Own Shadow: Understanding the Dark Side of the Psyche (Robert A.
