The Laws of Lifetime Growth
While I often times reference a book in this blog, it is not often that I actually recommend one. Today I do.
Dan Sullivan, founder of The Strategic Coach has just released his newest book, The Laws of Lifetime Growth . Dan is a friend of mine and a coach to me. This blog would not exist were it not for the thoughts, guidance, support and cheerleading that Dan has given me over the years.
I admit it. I’m a shill for Dan. Dan has dedicated his life to working with entrepreneurs of growth companies. An entreprenuer himself, there is no one who understands the issues that impact entreprenuers better than Dan.
This little book is Dan’s philosophy in 109 pages. Dan co-wrote it with Catherine Nomura, one of his Strategic Coach team members. Catherine’s touches make it an easy read, so there it is not one of those books that just ‘sits’ on your bookshelf. It’s easy to talk about, and it gives you a great structure for thinking about life and growth.
The 10 laws are:
Always Make Your Future Bigger Than Your Past (my favorite)
Always Make Your Learning Greater Than Your Experience
Always Make Your Contribution Bigger Than Your Reward
Always Make Your Performance Greater Than Your Applause
Always Make Your Gratitude Greater Than Your Success
Always Make Your Enjoyment Greater Than Your Effort
Always Make Your Cooperation Greater Than Your Status
Always Make Your Confidence Greater Than Your Comfort
Always Make Your Purpose Greater Than Your Money
Always Make Your Questions Bigger Than Your Answers
I encourage you to read the book share your favorites.
