Robin Sharma’s latest book The Greatness Guide offers 101 tips on making yourself great.
Sharma pulls together his own experiences and combines them with succinct quotes from others to illustrate numerous ways that you can better yourself or your company.
You may have heard a lot of his advice before. Some points will be new. Either way I found this book a great kick in the pants on some things I know I should be doing but haven’t been.
This book is a very quick read with short one or two page chapters. You may even want to read one a day to get your daily dose of inspiration.
Sharma touches on a little of everything: time management, family life, goal setting, determining what is really important, and more.
Some of my favorite quotes include the following:
Success isn’t sexy. It’s all about working the basics of excellence with a passionate consistency.
The urge to chase after “get rich quick” schemes must be tempered by reality. Most success doesn’t come from winning the lottery, it comes from consistently working at something over time.
Your schedule is the best barometer for what you truly value and believe to be important.
I caught myself thinking about my schedule. Are the things I claim to be important really taking up the majority of my time? While reading this book, I often was compelled to think about my situation and how I could make some positive changes.
Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you say no to something that is important.
Too often I let little things distract me from my bigger goals. Just because I’m busy doesn’t mean I’m making forward progress.
It’s never too late to become the person you have always dreamed of being.
We don’t have to procrastinate any longer. Make a simple change today and you’ll see the difference it can make.
