What This Leadership Blog Will Do for You

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 19, 2008

Leadership Revolution pictureI was reading the introduction to a book of quotes on wisdom and was impressed by a page called, “What This Book Will Do for You.”   I want to share with you the thoughts, but change it slightly to make it fit Chris Brady and my leadership blogs.  This introduction captures the essence of why Chris and I write blogs and books.   Here it is:

This self-help leadership blog will give
you a priceless liberal (old meaning of liberal, meaning well rounded in classic literature and thought) education, and it includes the prescriptions for successful living.  Here is a blog that will stimulate your thinking and help you to be successful in your work, your study, and in your everyday living.  The
prescriptions spelled out in these pages, will, if followed, help develop your
inner qualities, for that is where your real wealth is.

Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for. – Socrates

This blog is compiled and written for the express purpose of condensing the best thoughts and advice of the greatest men and women in history in the hope that their distilled wisdom will be a guide to inspire you to build a solid bedrock foundation for a better, nobler life. This leadership blog contains some of the most powerful and persuasive utterances of man—words that will inspire, help and delight you.

The short sayings of wise and good men are of great value.  They are like the
dust of gold or the sparkle of the diamond. – Tolstoy

Through the centuries great men and women have stood out like the beacons of a lighthouse to guide and enrich their fellows.  The examples of these greats
live on through the years; everyone can benefit by the trails they have blazed
toward a better life.  No person is great in and of themselves; they must touch the lives of other great beings who will inspire them, lift them, and push them forward.

He is a rich man who can avail himself of all men’s faculties. – Emerson

This leadership blog of wise sayings was undertaken in the belief that there was a need for a blog of practical, everyday, usable sayings, thoughts and articles—that would help modern man develop his full potential and be the person they are capable of being.  If we are to be highly successful in life, we
must look backward to learn from the experience of the greatest minds of the
past, and then apply this wisdom to the greatest fulfillment of our everyday
living.  The experience of the sages coupled with our own gives us the unbeatable combination to reach our worthy goals.

The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotation. – Disraeli

Isn’t that a phenomenal introduction of why a leadership blog?  It was so good I had to share it!  Let’s develop and apply wisdom together, so we can make a difference.  God Bless, Orrin Woodward
