In 2019, a friend of mine that I met when we were both in the EO Chapter in Seattle, Russell Benaroya, while living in Costa Rica, began writing about his journey as an entrepreneur.
He told me it quickly became less about work and more about how to reconcile the “what” he does and the “why” he does it. What resulted was a book he has just published, One Life to Lead, that looks at leadership through the lens of how we choose to architect our lives.
The book is filled with experiences from “Life Designers” who share with us the intersection of life and leadership that sits beyond the surface of what most people see. I thoroughly enjoyed in particular Max Nelson's section in "Be a Lucky Person". Intrigued? You should be!
Through stories and exercises in the book, One Life to Lead, is an effective guide to help each of us check in with how we want to lead ourselves before we can effectively lead others.
I hope you get a chance to read the book which you can find here on Amazon. If you are interested, there is a companion workbook with a bunch of great exercises that you can download for free if you use this discount code:1L2L100OFF.
What I appreciate about the book is that it humanizes the journey toward business success and helps create a deeper connection with the people I lead and serve.
