1- "If you assume that you can learn from anyone—if you assume that you must learn from everyone—then everyone becomes a great teacher for you. Even if someone's a slime-sucking scumbag of a leech they qualify for greatness if you can learn something from them."
2- "Scan—just like you were a computer scanner. Your scanner just copies; it doesn't comment, it doesn't offer an opinion, it doesn't tell you you're stupid for time on that photo of the girl you met while v all were dancin' on the bar at Jimmy Love's. Just scan your environment and record what you see. Scan the bestseller lists and notice what people are reading; scan the magazine racks and pick up publications that don't interest you—like, I dunno, The Tattoo Review or Graffiti Today, scan the weekly TV-show rankings; scan the headlines of the daily paper in 20 different cities; scan the room that you're sitting in; scan the crowd as you're toolin' down the street during your lunch break. Then, every so often, write down what you're seeing in your WUP. Write down your observations of subcultures that are entirely alien to you and trends in the tastes of the popular culture. Capture little idea-snapshots of natural, political, and social phenomena. Scan, scan, scan. Look at everything going on around you and write your observations in the pad...After collecting your observations for a while you stop, read it over, and give it some reflection. What are the implications of this? What can I earn from that? Why are so many people doing X, and what might that mean for all of us?...Talk About it...With everyone...Or everyone that matters, anyway. Talk about your observations and ideas with your team, for example.Read more ›
The Radical LEAP!
It was a good follow up to LEAP, where I got into Steve Farber and fell in love with his message(s) on leadership. A great assignment for Mr. Cashman about 8 years ago. I read through the book in one weekend, took a bunch of notes, came back to the book/notes a few times while in college, then the book got a bit dusty and I ignored it for a bit. I skimmed through LEAP and the lessons were just as relevant as 8 years before.
The Customer is never Just the Customer
A statement that I forgot, but re-realized. The customer, rather what ever the customer/audience is in your life, can never never ever be just a customer. They are your life blood. Whether it was in my political life and the customer=voters, as a student where the customer=students, or now where my customer=students (again); just as amazingly relevant.
Something lost, something found
Now my attempt at a summary which is not really possible (unless I am done reading forever or dying). Both of these book were able to re-energize me in life and trying to be a "leader". Learning every day. Something I may have lost over the past few years, that vigor is back again.
The most important advice I got from the book is to love the people you serve. There is no higher calling, no matter how you accomplish this.
I am starting my own WUP and am re-reading the book. I highly recommend Radical Edge!
