I read books. All kinds. I have nature-find yourself within kind of book going right now but have not touched it a month or so. I bring this up because I find it odd that many people get stuck in one subject of books. For instance, here at work, I ask someone if they like to read and yes is the response. Naturally, I ask what kind of books. The response baffles me because the person reads all business motivation process improvement type books. I have read a few of these books because I was curious and people have recommended them to me. I find myself reading these books and thinking, eureka, author du jour, you have successfully outlined common sense in a new way. Stuff like, do what you say you will do, don't set unrealistic expectations, accept responsibility, plan well and execute the plan..... I am in awe of their abilities(not really)! Maybe I am missing the point here and these types of books really do make people better and more effective workers and leaders but if one more person tells me how to go from Good to Great I might set myself on fire(I stole that phrase from the Sports Guy on ESPN.com, who used to be the Boston Sports Guy and is a great and funny writer).
