Tidbits from Sinek’s Book for Friday FFBS Presentation

I am really excited about the presentation I will give this week at the First Friday Book Synopsis at the Park City Club in Dallas.  If you have not yet registered, just go to:  15minutebusinessbooks.com.

The book is Together is Better, authored by Simon Sinek (Portfolio, 2016).  It is the secondSimonSinekPicture book we have presented from Sinek, and this one was on every business best-selling list that we could find.

Here are some advance tidbits from the presentation that I will make.

Most of us live our lives by accident – we live as it happens.  Fulfillment comes when we live our lives on purpose.

 A team is not a group of people that work together. A team is a group of people that trust each other.  

Fight against something and we focus on the thing we hate. Fight for something and we focus on the thing we love.  

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.  

A star wants to see himself rise to the top. A leader wants to see those around him become stars.

If you have to miss it, you can always purchase the presentation and handout on Together is Better Cover15minutebusinessbooks.com.  But, you don’t get the networking, and you don’t get an omelette.

This is an inspirational book, and I wish I had read it before Christmas, as it would have been a great stocking-stuffer for some of my professional contacts.
