Have you read any good Books lately? Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy is an excellent book

I recently read the book "Quiet Strength" by Tony Dungy. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. I read it in less than 3 weeks and actually gave it away for someone else to read when I finished it. Tony Dungy has an awesome story and it was very encouraging to read about how he overcame lifes challenges (i.e. tragically losing his teenaged son who committed suicide). I reccomend that you read this book. If you don't have time to read it. Here are some of the notes that I took:
  • Tony's slogan: "No excuses, no explanations"
  • Life Drags on when you're losing but it marches on when you're winning
  • Appreciate the joys of the moment
  • While dealing with anger, ask yourself "Will losing my temper make the situation better".
  • Develop a quiet strength
  • Learn the art of story-telling (Good leadership attribute)
  • Do the ordinary things better than everyone else
  • Be uncommon, Do what you do
  • Talent is God given; Be Thankful
  • Praise is man given; be humble
  • Conceit is self given; be careful
  • Be consistent (Mc Donalds Fries are the same everywhere)
  • Trust your preparation
  • Build a legacy in those places that people will never see
  • Dont allow the pursuit of life's goals caue you to lose sight of purpose
  • Your purpose is to glorify God
  • Pray that people will see more of God's prescence all around them
  • Always make family a priority
  • Enjoy the Journey of Life
  • You are faced with a choice everyday; be a giver or a taker

Have you read any good books lately? Let me know which books you reccomend.
