It was Peter Drucker who said that the only skill that will be important in the 21st century is the skill of learning new skills. This sums up self-improvement very nicely.
“If you want to grow and become the best person you can be, you’ve got to be intentional about it,” John C. Maxwell advised.
The book is structured in two parts. The first part, titled: Laying a foundation for self-improvement, dealt on the glaring importance of a conscious attitude toward growth. He shared some principles for self-improvement, the benefit of a strong devotion to growth, and why your ability to remain teachable is the push towards taking your talent to the next level.
The on-going process of improvement: the second part, focused on where your efforts for improvement should go into, the benefits of adversity, the place of experience, and the cost of growth.
John Maxwell did a good job of bringing the succinct point home. The conversational tone of the book and the stories embedded therein, makes for an enjoyable read.
I vote, yes! Go and read.
