This was a great book! I was expecting to hear a bunch of coach stories but I was surprised it went in a different direction. I love all of the emphasis on doing important work without expecting praise. It’s easy to get caught in the trap of strategically doing good deeds to boost your own position and ego. I would recommend it to other coaches and even players in a captain position

Many students don’t understand the duration and volume of work it’s going to take to find jobs in the industry. Networking and experience trumps a degree.

Like many young idealists, Eric Greitens wanted to make a difference. During college and afterward, he traveled to the world's trouble spots, working in refugee camps, serving the sick and the poor on four continents, from Gaza to Croatia to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, among others. Yet he could not prevent violence or save anyone from becoming a refugee; he could only step in afterward and try to ease the damage. So Eric joined the Navy SEALs and became an elite warrior....

Learning how to write a book is easy. Learning how to write a book that doesn't suck and can actually make you money - and set you up for a full-time writing career is harder.

But it's nowhere near impossible. And it's far more doable than you can imagine. The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations: 1) Most self-published nonfiction books suck. 2) It's almost impossible to make a living from one self-published nonfiction book.

What if everything you ever wanted isn't what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn't anymore. Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism...and everything started to change.

Great storyline that also teaches key aspects of minimalism. I had never heard of minimalism before this book.

Would be great to have some tools or challenges bulleted to help a beginner on the process of initiating minimalism but there were quite a few examples blended into the story.

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

I run a small business and an online distribution business. Nowhere near the size of companies mentioned in this book. However, it helps identify flaws and how to capitalize on potential in the markets I work in. Great resource
