Leaders Read and Readers Lead

I love this quote. Don’t know where I came across it, but it’s always stuck with me.

I love to read. To be inspired, challenged, equipped and discover the distilled thoughts of those that have laboured a long time with their ideas.  I read a lot but this year, I’m taking it up a notch, and I’m getting a lot more intentional about. I’m also far more focused on putting the time to share the nuggets with those who’d benefit. I’ve set myself a target of reading 2 books a week. Once read, I’ll be writing blog posts and looking at the best take- aways from these books. I’m also going to be interviewing a number of these authors for a regular podcast that I will be doing each week. I’m very excited about doing this and will be releasing the first podcast later this month.

This idea has been cooking for a long time, and I’m finally going to engage in what is possibly one of my biggest passions. Stimulating, deep and meaningful conversations. The only difference this time round, is that they will be recorded and you will have the pleasure of receiving the insights of what I know will be some very interesting and incredible people I will have the privilege of talking to.

What books will I be reading? Well I’m pulling together my reading calendar and I’m so excited about what I’m going to learn. I’m looking at the intersection of success, technology, leadership and psychology with love, friendship, community and ancient wisdom. I want to serve the entrepreneurial visionary, the leader and the creative to be more intentional, content & fruitful in their pursuit to both achieve success and make a difference in this world.

One quick question for you? What books do you recommend to read and who would you like to hear in a conversation?

    I agree that Leaders Read, but I don’t believe that all readers are leaders. Great post…
