Thinking For A Change: 11 Ways Highly Successful People Approach Life and Work (New York: Center Street, 2003)

John Maxwell has been writing books on leadership for decades. This one is my favorite by far. In Thinking For A Change, Maxwell doesn’t tell you what to think but how to think. He shares 11 mental habits everyone needs to develop, including:

  • Big-Picture Thinking – seeing the world beyond your own needs and how that leads to great ideas
  • Focused Thinking – removing mental clutter and distractions to realize your full potential
  • Shared Thinking – working with others to compound results
  • Reflective Thinking – looking at the past to gain a better understanding of the future.

Have you read this book? If so, what were the most helpful habits discussed?
