Reading a book has the potential to alter the way we behave. This can be a gift. It can also be a curse.
The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch, was a gift.
Randy’s book helped me see the same things I always see, in a completely different light.
It was in the contemplative moments, inspired by his news, “You have about six months to live”, that really helped me see a blind spot.
A blind spot that most humans share.
Putting important things off because they are not urgent.
Health. Family. Spirit. Life. Legacy.
What does this have to do with leadership?
Do I really have to explain it? Because if I do, it worries me that you still might not get it.
You will eventually, but what if someone disconnects your phone?
