The Hows are the domain of the universe. It always knows the quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between you and your dream. – The Secret
Several weeks ago I was with a corporate client (I do life and executive coaching) and we ended up talking about Patrick Lencioni’s ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’. I knew of the book and some of the concepts inside it but hadn’t read the book. I made a mental note to myself that I needed to read the book and research the material. Each week after that I reminded myself that I still needed to do that! Basically I was focusing on the ‘what’ I needed and not the ‘how’. I hadn’t quite figured out a strategy yet as to how I would get the book. Some books I borrow from our library, others I just buy for my Kindle.
A couple months ago I had signed up for a speaker event at work, it was actually Patrick Lencioni coming to talk about his new book Getting Naked! I showed up and because Patrick wanted the session to be interactive he offered a free book to the first 3 people who asked a relevant question! The whole session was fantastic so it was easy for me to stand up and ask the first question. After that exchange Patrick literally threw a book at me, lo and behold it was a copy of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team! There’s more to this story so please stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog!
