A couple of weeks ago, I was on a call with my friend Daniel Bauer, education leader, podcaster and author of the book Mastermind: Unlocking Talent Within Every School Leader.
He had included me in an email sharing about his favorite recording of all times: The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbBHR_CD56M
I had taken to time to find it and listen and ended up writing down several notes and questions.
Danny was generous enough to schedule a call with me so that we could talk about my questions, and we decided a few minutes into the conversation to record it as I had a feeling it would be full of great takeaways. I was not disappointed, and I believe you’ll find Danny’s feedback helpful for your leadership as we discuss ideas including:
- Setting goals and reviewing them
- Not responding to what you fear
- Giving more of yourself than ever before
- The realities of how good things usually come from doing hard things
- How “head winds and tail winds” in our lives influence our movement and generosity
