One of the most challenging aspects of my work is staying engaged while leading a book circle with a book that I have already read and lead numerous times.
Case in point...Think Again by Adam Grant.
Last year, I hosted 6 different book circles with the book with four different companies (some companies had more than one book circle.)
Recently, I have started another one, and have 2 more starting in May.
I thrive on new-ness and change, so the idea of leading another 3 books circles on the same book could have made me gag.
Instead, I thought, "How can I stay engaged, so that the reader's will stay engaged?"
I already have...
So, what else is there to do?
Below is my answer...
I don't consider myself artistic, and whenever I see people's visual summaries and recordings of events, I am in awe.
I could stay in awe, and remain stuck in my belief that "I can't do that," or I could learn to do just that.
That's what I am doing.
According to Grant that's 'confident humility' - the belief that you can do it, even if you don't yet have the tools to do it.
Do you ever get stuck in, "I can't do that?"
