Review by Susan Hamilton
Don’t you love a good book that motivates you? With action steps at the end of each chapter, you’ll not only be motivated, but challenged to continue to improve.
One perspective I found very helpful was John’s approval of the ‘pause.’
In today’s busy world, we feel like we’re getting slung from one activity to the next. It’s one of the biggest reasons we fail to get to the next level in business, too. In the fourth chapter, The Law of Reflection, Mr. Maxwell says that when we pause, we allow our growth to catch up to us. I love that!
I’m reflective by nature, but routinely become frustrated by circumstances that don’t seem to favor my time spent like that. With Mr. Maxwell’s encouragement and permission, I can plan time for regular reflection so that I get the most out of each experience. The planning of it removes that frustration, because reflection then becomes an accepted and expected behavior, rather than something I feel I have to excuse.
In Chapter 11, he talks in detail about the Law of Trade-offs. I think this chapter is significant for every business owner. He says the higher you climb, the tougher your trade-offs; and they’re to be expected. That’s good to know!
