Old Habits Die Hard - 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

It was the first "business book" I ever read.

Like most people, it was given to me by a parent.

I read it and forgot it almost instantly.

But a decade later, I picked it up and it became the foundation of what I consider a "professional" and a "leader" to be.

It's not fun to recommend this book.

Everyone looks at you condescendingly like you're an idiot and says
"oh that, I read that eons ago" and turns away half muttering "naive

But do they remember even one habit?
Do they live any of them?

Probably not, I know because I was one of those people.

And now I read it every single year.

I get something new and powerful out of it every time.

To start this blog off, it is the perfect first step on ou
r journey together.

I leave you with the most powe
rful chart that I first found in the book.

It continues to roc
k my world. Q2 rules.
