This week’s Resource Recommendation – Mojo: How to Get It, How to Keep It, How to Get It Back if You Lose It By Marshall Goldsmith
Some call it a hot streak; others use words like momentum, flow or good karma. Marshall Goldsmith, one of America’s top executive coaches, calls it mojo, and he has written this book to define it, explore the components of it, help you see why you want it and how to get it.
Our default response in life is not to experience happiness. Our default response in life is not to experience meaning. Our default experience in life is to experience inertia.
From this paradox, he moves forward to help us get past that inertia in thoughtful, conscious ways so we can create more happiness, more meaning and more mojo.
The book then explains the four building blocks of mojo and how to use them in your life. Those blocks are:
Often in this space I recommend books that have a pretty narrow focus and might only be applicable to some readers based on their professional interests. This is NOT one of those books.
If you are interested in having more happiness and a more meaningful life, this book is for you (and who doesn’t want that). It will help you think about getting more happiness and meaning – and give you specific ideas about how to make that happen. And, it all comes from one of the best executive coaches on the planet. That makes the few dollars spent a darn good investment!
I’ve read this on my Kindle and wish I hadn’t. Not because I didn’t want to read the book, but because this is one of those books I would have taken a few notes in the margins and highlighted some sections.
This book challenged me to think and reflect and will help me both professionally and personally to get – and keep – my mojo. It is hard to beat that!
Final note – Marshall will be one of our guests on the Remarkable TV event Coach and Be Coached tomorrow, March 16. Register now (for fr/ee) for all the details. Plus, as a registered guest, you can find out when he is scheduled to appear!
