Here at ADMIN, we are constantly working on enhancing our productivity both as a company and as individuals. For inspiration, we will often turn to things like TEDTalks and podcasts. In fact, that is why we started our podcast series here on our blog. This same initiative has encouraged us to start a new monthly series on the blog that is dedicated to books that have influenced our team. Welcome to the Monthly Book Review.
If you haven’t noticed (which we hope you have not) we are a little late on this month’s book review. The reason for this is because we decided to tackle ‘Tribe of Mentors’ during the month of September and boy is this a big book! There’s around 600 pages and each one is packed with advice from both Tim and a slew of world-class performers. That’s a lot of guidance to get through.
It seems almost impossible to give an in-depth review on a book like this. There are so many stories, experiences, routines, failures, successes, and suggestions to talk about. With that being said, that might be the best part of the whole book. There is something in here for everyone – no matter who you are, what you do for a living, or what you struggle with the most. Everyone is sure to find something in this book that they can love and learn from. While it is exciting to read the ups and downs from some of your favorite people (i.e. Maria Sharapova explaining how losing can teach you more than winning), this book is also packed with motivating content from people you may have never heard of.
It has been said that Tim Ferris believes after reading this book you will “like about half the book, love about 20%, and have your life changed by about 10%.” We couldn’t agree more. There is a lot of inspiration packed into these pages and it’s not just meant to benefit you in your work. There are morning routines that will help you start your day in a more productive and positive way, tips on how to realistically keep a journal, there is even talk about the benefits of a power nap!
We can’t say enough good things about this book, but one of our favorite things is that the book is written in way where it can be used as a reference guide later on. You can mark your favorite story or the person who encouraged you the most, and easily refer back to their feature as quick pick-me-up. This truly is a book that you won’t want to put down – time and time again.
