Laws of Lifetime Growth – Book Recommendation

I’ve been reading a lot lately about keeping the ‘entrepreneurial mindset’ alive in a maturing organization.  Dan Sullivan, co-author of The Laws of Lifetime Growth, coaches thousands of entrepreneurs each months so his book caught my attention.  It’s a quick read with easy to remember laws.  Here’s a few insights I found helpful:

Law 2 – Always Make Your Learning Greater Than Your ExperienceThe Laws of Lifetime Growth by Dan Sullivan
‘Make each day a source of growth.’
‘You don’t get to choose all the experiences you have, but you do get to choose what to do with them.’
‘Transform your experiences into lessons and you’ll never feel world-weary or disadvantaged by your past.’

Law 3 – Always Make Your Contribution Bigger Than Your Reward
‘Always focus on creating new kinds of value for larger numbers of people, and you will ensure that your contribution is always greater than your reward.’
‘People want to align themselves with others who are making great contributions.’

Law 4 – Always Make Your Performance Greater Than Your Applause
‘The greatest performers in all fields are those who strive to get better.’
‘Continually work to surpass everything you’ve done so far, and your performance will always be greater than your applause.’
‘The true sign of a talented performer is that he or she can perform the same material over and over and make it seem different every time.’
