Do you have a library of books you’ve never read before? Several people do, and if that’s you, don’t worry – I don’t know it’s you. I’m not here to call you out. I am suggesting a process to vet information, though, and it’s up to you to receive and employ it.
Like all methods shared on this website, you’ve payed the price up front. You’ve allowed yourself to be open minded in a time when it might not be considered common sense to think critically.
I vet the people not the products. I interview people I meet in person to qualify them. If I go logical, I look for the results before I ever buy a book. I follow Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady’s conception of leadership (TLL) for big flags. I look for a mindset conducive with a level from the stages of culture shared in Tribal Leadership. Typically, there’s more eustress at higher stages of culture, or mindset. If they fill the need with fruit on the tree, there’s no reason to vet past conducive values if they’re ethical.
A method in my process from Jeffery Combs is to read five sections or chapters from five books per week, letting my intuition decide what’s best for you. Assuming said sources are qualified, see how you’ll grow when applying what you’ve got.
At this point in time, if you click the links in some of these posts, you might experience some cascading a-ha moments. My wish for you, dear reader, is for you to take action.
