In the search of books & resources, I have come across many excellent authors or masters. I have already featured a few in my earlier posts.
In this post, I would like to review one original, thought provoking book, written with warm, passion & clarity as well as mastery of content.
Actually, I had read `Breakpoint & Beyond' during the mid-nineties, when it was first published. At that time, I had just embarked on a journey to play a better game in the second half of my life.
Oftentimes, I have returned to the book to read certain earmarked pages.
In a nut shell, it weaved a compelling story about change by focusing a new & penetrating lens on the master teacher of change, Mother Nature herself. The authors asserted that understanding the invisible forces of natural change would uncover the hidden patterns that could unlock our potential as individuals & organisations.
The authors also showed that natural growth was characterised by long periods of stability, punctuated by "breakpoints" - bursts of explosive change & showed how we could take advantage of the tremendous opportunities that would arise during these exciting periods.
Amidst the somewhat lofty rhetoric - the book was rather heavy to read - I would like to single out one principle from the book - the Principle of Future Pull.Read more ›
A central point of this book is that all systems go through distinct phases of change. These phases are visible in rocks and relationships; they govern the behavior of crystals and families and galaxies. Each phase has its own rules for success. This book maps out the phases of change, teaches you how to tell "where the system is", and most importantly, how to adopt strategies that work in the current set of rules.
A must-read for executive leadership, this book has been indispensible in helping organizations understand and implement the process of transformative change.
It certainly opens ones eyes to the way Nature does things, and in turn, the way we should look at moving past those "knock your head against the wall" times. How can I improve, what is the processes that I need to embrace to allow that to happen. As most people do, I bang my head against the wall a couple of times, and then I remember that I should work smarter, or in a different way, rather than harder. I have used it as a teacher, a coach and in my personal life.
I recommend that it should be made required reading. at least twice in one's life.
