Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for. – Socrates
One of the hallmarks for growing leaders is that they are readers. It’s as you read that you can expand your horizons, be stretched in your thinking, and sharpen your leadership skills. It’s a great habit all leaders should develop. Reading stimulates the mind and can take you on a journey of a thousand miles without leaving the comfort of your chair. As of late I’ve been reading David and Goliath (Malcolm Gladwell), 7 Men and the Secret to Their Greatness (Eric Metaxas), and All In (Mark Batterson). What about you? What book are you enjoying right now? Leaders know the secret to personal growth and development – a good book!
