Quiet Strength

As someone who lives in Steeler Country I have great memories of Tony Dungy as both a player and a coach.  I think the best way to describe the impact that he had was the fact that he only played a few years here yet I remember his play.  It was always noted about how “football” smart he was and that he would certainly become a coach and though his playing career was rather short he soon became the coach of former teammates who were much older.  In Quiet Strength  Tony Dungy shares his journey as a player, coach, Super Bowl champion , and most important to him, father and man of God. 

Crush It

Crush ItMy son introduced me to the world of Gary Vaynerchuk, a sort of Tony Robbins except that Mr. Vaynerchuk has some success beyond his lectures and books.  I am not sure that came out right, but Gary Vaynerchuk (it is so much fun carefully typing his last name) cashed in on his passion (wine) and has used both conventional and unconventional methods to become successful, turning his family business from profitable to mega-profitable.  While Robbins is best known for speaking, just speaking.

Fish

The good news about Fish is that you learn how to bring energy, passion, and a positive attitude to your job everyday.  The bad news is that you probably work for someone who does not encourage energy, passion, and a positive attitude.  I would not let that stop you from reading this book by Stephen C. Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen.

I do not happen to work in a place that emulates the principles in Fish, but I found this book encouraging and entertaining.  I always try to have fun at work.  It is either that or go crazy.
