Each Friday I like to share at least four suggested reads, listens, learnings or reviews. Thanks for joining me for the this week’s 4forFRIDAY August 4, 2017.
- A Really Good Read – Six Thinking Hats – by Edward de Bono
“The main difficulty of thinking is confusion,” writes Edward de Bono, long recognized as the foremost international authority on conceptual thinking and on the teaching of thinking as a skill. “We try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope, and creativity all crowd in on us. It is like juggling with too many balls.” The solution? De Bono unscrambles the thinking process with his “six thinking hats”

- A Short, Inspiring Read: The Man who built Stihl Inc. remembered for a personal touch.
For company presidents looking to be fondly remembered, take a note from Stihl Inc.’s longtime leader Fred Whyte, who died July 7: Make it personal.
- A Really Good Movie on PPV: The Zookeeper’s Wife:
The Zookeeper’s Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion and occupation.
And a quote that I pondering from Thomas Edison:
“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends, there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”
