Quite interesting, as Adam Grant always is, but a few days later, I'm remembering the case studies but not much in the way of the content...

Adam Grant writes an inspirational book about character and provides some great motivational zingers. Lots of great anecdotes and the first half is excellent. The second half lost a little steam for me- there‘s a lot of athletic stories, and the education aspects were weaker than other chapters. Even still, it‘s an inspiring, quick book to lift spirits.

I‘ve been reading the scrolls for 4 months almost everyday now and it‘s crazy to see how quickly life can start changing when you take control.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Overall I found it interesting, but none of it seemed like new information to me - more like stories & studies to back up things I already knew. Grant reads the audiobook, which feels like a long-form podcast, and there are quite a few differences between the audio & the hard copy-I‘d recommend the audio. If leadership studies or growing potential is an interest of yours, I would definitely recommend this.I‘m just not his prime audience.

#two4tuesday on Wednesday

1. It depends. I don‘t believe that merely thinking about something will make it appear, particularly when talking about tangible things (e.g., money, property). But I do believe in the power of positive thinking & that setting intentions will lead to positive outcomes.

2. The tagged, which comes out today. I enjoyed his book Think Again.

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. Absolutely not. Do I think that - all other things being equal - positive thoughts are more likely to lead to a good outcome than negative thoughts? Sure. But the idea that your circumstances are wholly dependent upon your mindset is absurd, and becomes rather odious when taken to its logical extremes.

2. 'The Secret', aka The Grifter's Bible

RaeLovesToRead You may enjoy my GR review of The Secret. It's not for everyone 😅 4mo
The_Penniless_Author @RaeLovesToRead "Quantum physicists tell us that the entire Universe emerged from thought!" As if the moral implications of this book weren't gross enough, it includes absolutely batshit, made-up claims like this one. The Secret is the reason I have to pause if asked, "Are you categorically against book burnings?" ? 4mo

My answers:
🎃 Yes. I think if we are positive then we tend to draw positive outcomes to us and vice-versa.

Finished this week for the Leadership 101 series I teach at work. While I (& most of my group) appreciated (pun intended) much of the core & practical information in this book, we didn‘t appreciate all of the fluff such as listing out each kind of workplace & saying why appreciation will work there. We‘d have liked more practical examples & ideas for each type of appreciation. Note: those participants who read The 5 Love Languages liked it most.
