When I present one of my book synopsis presentations, I like to read some of the key quotes from the book and then ask folks to “turn to the person next to you and tell them which quote most resonated with you.” It always sparks some lively and useful conversations.
Here’s the next step – the takeaway for you whenever you read a book. Ask yourself:
“what have I read that resonates with me – with my situation, at work, especially at this time?”
Now, ask yourself this question:
“So, what am I going to do about this?”
When you get the answer to this question, then you can begin implementing what you have learned from reading your book.
In other words, understand – get clear! – and then, do!
In other words, the world belongs to those who understand, and then execute!
For those who never execute – it’s all just wishful thinking…
