Six minutes…

I just finished my third read of this book. My first was in 2005 when the book was published. I didn’t know how to read a book back then. No writing, just highlights and underlining. My second read was back in 2011. Some writing. Some learning. Some extrapolating.

I just finished my third read today on the flight to Chicago. So much more learning. So much more writing and reflecting. So much more extrapolating to my work and life. C.S. Lewis was right – there is no good reading, only good rereading – same with writing.

Btw. The average time it took a survivor to decide to move who was below the impact zone in either of the Twin Towers? Six minutes. Fact. How long are you waiting to decide to act into something unthinkable in your work/life? What are you rereading? When did you last rinse your CORE and OPUS? What are you waiting for, friend. You know you aren’t here forever, right?

Live hard. Love harder…

  1. Chester… each year I reread The Cure by Trueface. First time, blew through it. Since then lots of reflecting, writing, unlearning, relearning.
