Read Drive, Watch Cosmos, Stop Not Delegating
Here’s my reading, watching, and stopping for this week:
- When defining incentive plans, I found reading Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us to be invaluable. Based on studies and data, he outlines what truly drives performance.
- Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is an excellent series on science. It does a great job breaking topics into understandable chunks from evolution to space. Like Steven Hawking’s Genius series, it’s fun to watch and discuss with your kids (if you have them).
- Stop not delegating. Anytime I do a task, I ask whether or not someone else could tackle it. From managing board meetings for the next year to setting up the weekly newsletter to approving requests for donations from our Foundation, I have my trusted team work the details.
