Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us, by Seth Godin

I picked up the Tribes book by Seth Godin. Some people would argue the book lacks a specific “how-to”. Indeed, this book is not a step-by-step on how to lead. Instead, the Tribes book is inspirational; it’s a collection of inspirational nuggets.

Take a look, it’s a quick read. And like anything, you reap what you sow. Enjoy.

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

With over 1,800 reviews on Amazon.com, one would thing another review of the Steve Jobs book would a a bit much. No? Yes. So I’ll keep this short: Buy this book.

See. Nice and short : )

Sure, he was abrasive. Sure, he was a control freak, but in the end, what matters is that we’ve in a better place today because of him.

Read the Book.

Will Tomorrow’s Leaders Learn from Gaffs Made by Today’s Leaders?

Remember last year when Rep. Anthony Weiner creepily tweeted a picture of his undies to a college student? Or when Rep. Christopher Lee resigned after sending a shirtless picture of him flexing to a woman on Craigslist? Then there’s David Petraeus, the former CIA director was caught in an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, where the FBI found a number of inappropriate communications on the couple’s anonymous Gmail accounts.

Today’s youth should learn from this, though, there will be a few who won’t. Like Ricky Catanzaro, 16, of Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, who not only won’t soon forget his lesson, the Internet won’t let him forget.

At some point today’s youth will grow into tomorrow’s business leaders, team members, teachers, police, doctors, politicians, and even our next president.

The question is: Are you, and/or your children, working towards building an online identity free of these damaging incidents?
