Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers. Why? Because there are too many wisdom nuggets to learn in life to gather them all by one’s own experiences. Reading allows a person to gain wisdom through reflecting upon other people’s experiences which saves time and pain. LIFE Leadership is an educational company designed to help people save the time and pain of making all the mistakes themselves.

How many fields are you a master of?

Tell me what you do with your free time and I can fairly accurately predict your future. Indeed, investments over time compound and a person separates himself from the field. What are you waiting for? Get reading today from books of the top thinkers. If you are not sure where to start, I humbly submit (in addition to the Bible) Launching a Leadership Revolution, RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE, and LeaderShift for your reading pleasure.
