I’ve just taken on an intriguing challenge called the “Three Book Diet.” A Twitter friend referred to it as the “less-is-more” challenge, and I agree:
You commit to reading only 3 books over the course of the next year.
Now, many of us are business people in search of “holy grail-style” advice – the kind that will magically transform our success model – and/or relatively aware “seekers” looking for ways to create physical, mental and emotional health or healing. We have a tendency to blaze through a book and superficially take its advice, then move just as quickly onto the next book. “It was a good book,” we might say, “but its recommendations didn’t really make that much of a difference in my world.”
Well, what would happen if we REALLY took the time with it; took the time to see where we are in relation to the material; took the time to try on the recommendations; took the time to explore how we could use them for our growth and advancement. If we committed to that level of self-exploration, how might that information change us?
I’ve chosen my three books, but it seems to me that this is less about committing to the book(s) than committing to myself. As a Self-Care Specialist and a passionate teacher of Self-Nurture, I recognize this as an amazing opportunity to re-commit to my personal and professional development in a very deep way.
So I’d like to challenge you—will you join me? For details on the “Three Book Diet” go to http://www.chrisbrogan.com/3bd-day-one/
