Leaders Read#35

Updated: May 20



👋 Hello everyone,


Here are a couple of posts you might have missed:


 

📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "The Bhagavad Gita" by Eknath Easwaran.


I'm sorry...this week's book is probably banned from the standard business book shelf. I also must confess, my grasp of Indian culture, eastern religion, spirituality, and history is limited. Yet, considering this was reportedly the guidebook for none other than Gandhi—it should maybe rightfully claim to be first on a leaders shelf.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. Perform work in this world, as a man established within himself - without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat."


✅ Actionable advice:

Love the process; don't strive for the result. Isn't this a struggle for all of us? Resist the urge to be driven by the desire for approval or the fear of keeping up. Challenge yourself to find joy in utilizing your strengths for the greater good rather than striving to outperform your peers.
