This week’s reading recommendation: The One Thing You Need to Know : … About Great Managing, Great Leading, and Sustained Individual Success Marcus Buckingham, the author, is like the rest of us – looking for “simple” answers while realizing the reality is complex. He, like me, was frustrated with the movie City Slickers when they never told us what the ol’ cowpoke Curly meant by, “I’ll tell you the secret to life. This one thing. Just this one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean sh**.” “What’s the one thing?” Billy Crystal asks. “That’s what you’ve got to figure out.” replied Curly.
In this book, Buckingham gives us much more than just one thing – and it’s in large type so I don’t need my reading glasses 😉
As for the meaning of life, I think it’s whatever you make it (Oy! That’s almost as bad as “That’s what you’ve got to figure out” isn’t it?)
