I am age 67 and all forecasts say I should live to age 85. Therefore, I've got almost 20 years to build up my legacy. This book helped me define outcomes and a plan to do that.
I made lots of notes during the reading of this book, but three key takeaways were:
1. Problem finding is more important than problem solving, for if we don't define the most important problems clearly, we can end up promoting a single solution to every issue, i.e., I've got a hammer so everything looks like a nail.
2. The inherent problem with the advice "follow your passion" is that it focuses on what you can GET, not what you can GIVE. The perfect passion is something you enjoy that benefits others.
3. Intellectual growth results not from accumulating but instead integrating knowledge.
My legacy? Stamp out normal.
Maybe you feel aimless and need to take bold steps toward your destiny. Toddy Henry is an author, speaker, and thought leader. He is also the author of Accidental Creative, Herding Tigers, and Louder than Words.
He wants us to Die Empty of passion, curiosity, and regret. This book is part motivation and part roadmap. Todd has a knack for inspirational content. He wants us to redirect our compass and take a stand. Stoke the claims of curiosity. He's also a pragmatist. There are questions at the end of each chapter.
I found Todd Henry on Grant Baldwin's podcast, The Speaker Lab.
I think of his statements as darts of poignant calls to action. He gives theory and practical suggestions. Mapping + Making + Meshing = Developer. That's translated into Mapping (Planning or Strategizing) + Making (Doing the work) + Meshing (Analyzing what you've done) = Developer (Successful Person).
We often miss one or two elements. We could be drifting (no planning). We could be dreaming (not doing).
Thank you, Todd!
This is huge. From a career and personal perspective, it sets you apart from everyone else. People will want to work with you. You’ll be making a bigger difference. You’ll enjoy what you’re doing at a much deeper level.
In the book, Henry states: If you believe you’re capable of more, your best work is ahead of you. I love it. Then, he guides you through a process to step out of your comfort zone. His 3-step approach includes:
1) Mapping: figuring out your plan.
2) Making it happen; doing the work.
3) Meshing: prepping for long term success.
I strongly encourage people to read this book simply to understand that concept better — and hopefully, embrace it. My life has changed immeasurably since I committed to wholeheartedly giving away my personal gifts.
Don’t settle for a life of mediocrity. Go for it.
The book has been easy to digest and apply quickly. I found myself immediately brainstorming ways that my current commitments could have significantly more meaning and also dream (and plan) for work that could bring fulfillment. I have always has a deep sense that there was something in this world that I was "supposed to do" and this book gives a strong foundation for following that through and making sure I don't put it off until it's too late.
Todd is often tongue and cheek about the irony of writing a book about ways to live with the focus of death on the forefront. He handles this existential topic well. There are also tools created to make a nice component for this content. I plan on using them with my small work team and also with some of my clients. As I talk to more and more people about this topic, it seems that we live in a day when most people want to do more than just earn money. This book really helped clarify how to walk that out.
It challenges you to work on your current and daily opportunities as opposed to focusing on what is behind us and can no longer be changed.
I would encourage All who really wants to make positive changes to their lives to get this book and the most important is for anyone who reads such a powerful book is to Act Now and share the knowledge with A friend As Well .
