Mike Myatt, in his article post for Forbes below shares some excellent thoughts on leadership for the new year. They speak well to the first three of the four cycles of Black Belt Business;
- Skills Mastery
- Team Mastery
It cannot be stressed enough how powerful following these cycles, in the exact order, are for creating sustained excellence in your professional and personal pursuits. From people like Steve Jobs to John Wooden to Theodore Roosevelt, the formula appears over and over. The best part is that it does not matter who you are or where you are in your profession or life. You don’t have to aspire to become a “Teddy Roosevelt” to benefit from doing good things for yourself and your career. Just move FORWARD…
Mike’s bonus tip is my favorite, probably because I’m right there with him having read close to 75 books in 2011 and have the same goal to read 100 books in 2012. It has been said that Theodore Roosevelt read one entire book per day throughout most of his life before his presidency. That’s serious reading!!
