What Are You Reading?

I received a gift certificate for a local bookstore for my birthday from Jelly and stopped on the way home this evening and used it before I miss-placed it.

I’ll be out of town later this week on some family business and got a few books for the plane rides/layovers.  51VNjbPk6UL._AC_UL115_

The one I’m most excited about reading is Simon Sinek’s, Leaders Eat Last, Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t.

Here is what is found on the inside flap:

Leaders are the ones who run headfirst into the unknown.    

They rush toward the danger.    

They put their own interests aside to protect us or two pull us into the future.

Leaders would sooner sacrifice what is theirs to save what is ours.  

 And they would never sacrifice what is ours to save what is theirs.  

 This is what it means to be a leader.  

 It means they choose to go first into danger, headfirst towards the unknown.

And when they feel sure they will keep us safe, we will march behind them and work tirelessly to see their visions come to life  and proudly call ourselves their followers.
