This book was recommended to me by a friend, Neal. He loved the book and said I should check it out.
We bet on NFL football games together, but the wagers are books. I forgot what game we bet on, but Neal lost and had to send me a book. This was it, “The Speed of Trust”.
First off, I was thinking this was the same author from the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, but it isn’t. It is his son. Was a bit surprised by this, but Stephen does a good job establishing his credibility and we were off.
It was a really good read that are very timely for me in my life. Good lessons in the book the biggest take away for me is HONOR AND RESPECT the commitments you make to yourself. Isn’t this the truth and just what I needed to hear in my life.
In honor of this, I have made a commitment to myself to constantly educate myself. I made the commitment to read 25 pages each day towards this aim in a new book. This is in line with reading 24 books during the 2014 calendar year. Not a blazing pace, but one to keep a fresh rotation of books in my hand and ideas in my brain.
In fact, this daily reading is one of m 30 Day Challenges i’m undertaking. I’m going to ready 25 pages everyday for 30 days.
There are many other lessons in this book that would be great for you, your business, and relationships.
AND YES: I owe Neal a book as of right now because I lost a bet to him, but i’ve neglected to mail him his copy. (shame on me)
If you read the book, let me know your thoughts.
