Habits of Successful People

A crazy, but true story.

Early in my career, I went to the COO of the large Financial Services company where I worked

I asked him, "what is the #1 book I should read?"

(He was paid $10 Million a year!!)

He handed me a copy of "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" off his book shelf

I opened the book, and looked at the table of contents

Nowhere did it say that a trait of a highly effective person was to "read this book"

I gave the book back.

I've always looked at that story sadly, that I was way too naive and overly confident.

But last year I retired at 43.   So maybe there is something to my point.

Highly effective people close books and do something.
