To mask and hide can eep us from Friend Foe knowing who we really are I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of the book It will be released on September 24 The author is offering some freebies for people who pre order it Details available HowToLeadOnlinecom This is a tremendous book which I highly recommend every leader and maybe even every person to read This book gives incredible advice on you and me can create a better you and me including focusing on our emotions simplifying life and focusing on the whylong term success is critical even if it means failure in the short run Some uotesA life of distraction is a shallow life a life lived without self awareness It s a life lived in constant anticipation of the next thing that willeep you from slowing down to listen to what s happening withinThe answer is to turn down the noise You cannot be emotionally oblivious and emotional healthy at the same time Emotional health begins with becoming emotionally aware and this reuires listening to what s happening on the insideThe greatest danger of being controlled by negative emotions is that you re missing out on allowing God who incidentally created all emotions to have control This was not my favorite book Clay Scroggins seems to be unaware that different personalities exist besides his own He doesn t seem to realize that introverts exist and many of his illustrations are geared to sports fans and no one else His advice is similar to the things so many deeper people have said It didn t feel like he referenced or uoted nearly enough because none of his ideas are original He at times felt extremely tone deaf to conversations The only reason that I m giving this book 2 stars instead of 1 is that it can help provide language for people who are unfamiliar with introspection and I can see how the book could help extroverts This book has some solid points about minimizing distractions but wasn t what I was expecting regarding leadership This book focused on leading yourself so you can be a better leader of othersMany points the author made were backed up with research and stories yet some points lacked much or even any supporting research For example the author states The lesson that life goes on without us has a huge positive impact on our emotional stability and health yet provides nothing for the reader to understand why that may be trueAs the book went on I found some topics becoming repetitive with fluff especially toward the end Almost as if the publisher reuired the author to create a 200 page book so the author strung out his concepts and added repetitive sentences in large size fonts to fill up. Y Scroggins teaches leaders four simple habits that create space for emotional evaluation and exploration These helpful practices will empower leaders to replace the chaos of their busy days with emotional competence and awareness that leads to a calmer fulfilling life You'll learn how to incorporate four noise cancelling habits into your daily life finding simplicity speaking to yourself getting uiet and pressing pause that will make you mindful and aware of the vital inner desires that need your attention Transforming the toxic cocktail of emotional distraction starts with emotional awareness being able to identify and understa.
Pages which I found unnecessary and distractingThe book may be valuable to people with less exposure to concepts like simplicity self talk and uiet time or meditation For me this book was decent and at times motivating and causing me to self reflect but not something I will read again or recommend I won this in a Good Reads giveaway Many thanks to the publisher for providing me with an opportunity to read and review this bookThe older I get the interested I am in leadership I ve learned that just because someone is in a leadership position it doesn t mean they can lead I ve seen highly productive employees who lack leadership skills and ability be put into leadership positions with disastrous results for all the team members Charisma is not leadership Brilliance is not leadership Passion is not leadership While I think the author of this book addresses important topics I didn t care for his casual folksy writing style Perhaps it s because he s a minister and he s using his pulpit style of speech in which to write If you re someone who responds well to a casualfolksy way of writing with pop cultural and Biblical references mixed in this may appeal to you I will continue looking for leadership books that speak to me as much as Stephen Covey did in the 1980s and Brene Brown does now Yes I am aware of Simon Sinek He s on my to read list Clay s book How to Lead in a World of Distraction has a modern approach to the distractions that plague our leadership Clay s own voice comes through loud and clear sharing his passion to see current day leaders pay closer attention to what they allow to consume their time The wisdom from Clay s thoughts are often only lessons learned by experience and this book offers insights for leaders to adopt earlier in their growth His four main habits of simplicity speaking to yourself getting uiet and pressing pause are overlooked by todays leaders as they allow their leadership to be attacked by the distraction s leaders are not attending to Yes as leaders we must be emotionally healthy enough to turn down the noise low enough and long enough to allow space for curiosity Dr Troy Robertson Leadership Coach When I received my book I was expecting it to be good Once I started reading it it was completely different than what I expected but it was truly brilliant This book was intriguing informative and captured my attention and held onto it continuously through the book There was great points in this book that I never thought of and some that I have I think this a great book for someone leading major business or someone just leading themselves Great read Awesome job Clay.
