At a fascinating dinner gathering a few nights ago, I had the privilege of meeting uber-Blogger Eric Barker. I learned that evening (not from him, for he seems quite humble and self-effacing) that his Blog, "Barking Up The Wrong Tree" is one of the most widely read Blogs in the world.
So, I have now subscribed to his newsletter and have been reading some of the back issues of his Blog. The one linked below is based on a book by Daniel Pink entitled, "The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need." This wisdom contained therein is so succinct and so on target that I knew I wanted to share it with readers of The White Rhino Report.
The basic outline of Pink's book, and of Barker's post is contained in these 6 principles:
- There is no plan.
- Think strengths, not weaknesses.
- It’s not about you.
- Persistence trumps talent.
- Make excellent mistakes.
- Leave an imprint.
So let’s break these down and explore what they mean and why they’re so effective. . . ."
I encourage you to click on the link below to read Barker's wise exegesis of these 6 principles.
