The best thing I can do for all you who are my friends in blogosphere is to give you something proactive and productive to start 2008. I've done this little exercise for the past three years and it's one of best things I do all year. It's called New Year New Results and you can get it here: Download new_year_new_results.doc. This isn't just a feel good set of questions. It's a tool to analyze what all the good, the bad, and the ugly looked like in your life in 2007. If you do anything, take an hour and complete this. The ROI (return on investment) for your time will be ten fold. This is how I managed to write four books this past year!
Also, to get you started on some good leadership books, I have a few to suggest:
Deep Change by Robert Quinn - the best book I've ever read on leadership and changing your behavior.
Heroic Leadership by Chris Lowney - a breakdown of a great 450 leadership organization - The Jesuits.
Celebration of Displine: The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard Foster - learning how to go deep in your spirituality.
C'mon don't just read this and sit there. Take action! Download this tool and put it to work. Get some of these books and apply the principles to your life and create change! Let me know how it goes.
