Feedback analysis…

…is a fancy way of saying that, instead of just using our gut feeling, we should instead test ourselves based on actual past successes and failures.

This sounds simple but it will show us that we have weaknesses in an area.

Simple but not easy.

Most will not do this for fear of exposing an area of weakness. For our ego is a strong force to harness.

But this is how we get better.

–>This IS how we get better.<–

-These are my notes from the book Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker

Get the book as it’s one I would call foundational to teaching us how to manage ourselves. Which is the first most important thing we can do.

Books I’ve read…

I got serious about reading a few years ago. Before that I don’t think I ever read a book cover to cover.

Even in high school I resisted reading because it wasn’t something I enjoyed. My mind tends to wonder when I read so I don’t remember what I’m reading.

I’ve gotten better at staying focused on what I read but it still needs to be something I’m interested in at the time.

It also helps when I take notes about what I’m reading and write about what it means to me.

Recently I’ve started buying my books on kindle so I can have them with me wherever I go. This has been one of the best things I’ve done to keep me reading.

I can carry an unlimited number of books with me and choose what I want to read when I have some down time.

I like to read different types of books depending on where I am or what time of day it is.

During my morning routine I typically read self-help type books. How to learn a new skill, how to be a better leader, how to be a better person and so on. Even books about how to run my business and how to stack cash.

At bed time I like to read about people. Biographies, auto-biographies, stories of hero’s, adventure or fiction. I read about people who did great things.

Books have brought mentors to me and supplied me with knowledge that I would not have been able to acquire.

Here’s a list of what I’ve been feeding my mind. It explains a lot about the decisions I make and how I think.

When I read I like to have some soft jazz in the background and this is one of the channels I listen to on Spotify.

Here’s a tip…if you are an Amazon Prime member there are many books you can borrow for free!

And a few words of wisdoms form Warren Buffett…

I hope you invest in yourself and learn to enjoy reading as much as I have.
