Reading Time: ~ 1 min.
To infinity & community,
Personally, I have no problem putting down a book the moment I’m “over” it, for whatever reason. And, I also only keep ~10 physical books with me and give the rest away.
But, I know that a lot of folks could probably do with a little less books in our lives… you know what I’m saying?
Building a community via a newsletter takes time and Rosie reminds us of the upfront work and investment that goes into it… over a long period of time.
Most folks quit too early in this game and that’s a damn shame.
A strong, authentic, and genuine relationship (and community) is one where you try to showcase and lift-up other folks before oneself. This is difficult to do and even harder to train into folks.
But, it is possible and we all need to model it first.
It’s a builder’s paradise. 🎵
But, a lot of folks are making a lot of excuses for why they won’t start and why they won’t build. They do the same when it comes to building community. We need more community builders. We need them badly.
Our future depends on great community builders, full stop.
Annie Duke changed the way I thought about poker, startups, relationships… life! Her first book was amazing and I had to read the second.
I’ve been thinking about doing a bookclub — if you’re interested in reading Annie’s recent book, email me (or reply to the newsletter) and let me know!
I think a similar thing when I think about community leadership.
Have a good one folks.
