The Energy Bus
Happy New Year!
Starting my 2019 reading The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon. My daughter recommended.
I liked this book and would recommend it as well. The concepts in this book all speak to going after your life with passion and, yes, energy! Being motivated and passionate about your work and personal goals makes a big difference. The book also talks about getting the right people on your bus, not letting people drain the energy out of your team, leading with your heart, and loving your passengers. If you lead a team and you (or your team) needs an energy injection then you should give this book a read! Get on the bus!
Memorable quotes from this book:
“Every crisis offers an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser; to reach deep within and discover a better you that will create a better outcome”
“Desire, vision, and focus help turn your bus in the right direction, but positive energy is necessary to take you where you want to go”
“Your positive energy and vision must be greater than anyone’s and everyone’s negativity. Your certainty must be greater than everyone’s doubt”
“Energy is the currency of personal and professional success today. If you don’t have it you can’t lead, inspire, or make a difference”
Some takeaways from this book:
1 Be passionate about anything you put your time into
2 Energy and enthusiasm affects culture and draws people
