There are many generous people out there. People are sharing knowledge and resources like nothing I’ve ever seen. It’s beautiful – most of the time. But I need to take a moment and acknowledge the person who has shown me the most generosity. This person seriously added value to my life in this current season. While the title of “Most Generous Person” may differ for us all, mine goes to a dude named Jeff Goins.
He’s a writer from Nashville, TN. I never met the guy, but that didn’t stop him from being relentless in helping me. I heard about him in a conversation with pastor Wayne Hilsden. We were discussing writers/teachers/leaders like Michael Hyatt and Chris Brogan. But he didn’t let the conversation end without being sure I knew who Jeff Goins was.
So I found out. And it was his “My 500 Words” challenge that got me to start blogging last year. It was his enthusiasm to offer quality resources for f-r-e-e, that helped me learn about adding value for others. (I particularly like the ebooks “The Beginner’s Guide to Building an Audience” and “The Surprises of Success.”)
But now he’s outdone himself by offering his latest book, “The Art of Work,” for only the price of shipping. Yeah, he wants you to pay for shipping, he wants you to get the book, to read it, to have it in your hands, on your shelf, in your life. And it’s worth it.
The book “The Art of Work” touches a nerve. It hits the deep frustration that we are dealing with when it comes to a mammoth-big issue: WORK
This concept has been dragged in the dirt for far too long. We might not think it, but in many ways we are experiencing the collateral damage of a Second Industrial Revolution. You can blame Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, or you can do something about it.
Here are 10 of my favorite quotes from the book:
Thanks again, Jeff.
