If there's anything I've learned during the social distancing period and shutdown incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic is that feeling helpless sucks! And when I saw this book on Netgalley, I immediately reached out because John Maxwell has written extensively on leadership drawing from real life examples and the Bible- so reading up on the strides Rob Hoskins has made as well was a major boost. In the book, there's the story about 5 frogs where it's told that 4 frogs decided to jump, how many were left? And if you are like me, you probably said 1 and that's where you and I miss the lesson on the difference between decision and action/ intention and action. The 4 decided but did they follow through on that decision? We don't know so we can't say that they truly jumped leaving behind the 1. That is so human, we believe that once we have a decision then that's as good as acting upon it- but change is mobile, it involves movement- action and throughout the book, the two authors share practical insights on how to go about this. The greatest take away from this book is that if you read it to the end and cast it aside, that's on you, and if you read it and draw from the lessons shared here and actualize them, then that's also on you. Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.
