Continuous and never-ending improvement. Just one of the many valuable takeaways I gleaned from Pumptitude. I read the first book en route to Greenville, SC to see our Michelin client. The simple approach you took in introducing the book’s many important lessons, coupled with your colorful anecdotes, made it a very pleasant read.
I wish my law school books were as interesting! My team, wife and friends would all suggest that I am ADD to a greater or lesser extend. Many of your lessons were about focus. Top of the list was writing down the five things you want to do today. Today was day one of me implementing this. I cannot tell you how many times I have had in my mind what I wanted to get done, then I get to the office, team members start coming in to talk, phone rings, emails back up, and the tasks move to tomorrow, then tomorrow, etc. I am confident that committing my five to writing will help. Thank you so much for giving me the books. I have already passed Pumptitude to a team member, and will continue to do so throughout our executive team. I would love for you to speak to my staff at some point. I will be reading Maximum Pumptitude as soon as I get it back from Dean, and will also investigate some of the books in your suggested reading list.
