This morning we started our new book Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words by Kevin Hall.  We covered from the Forward by Stephen R. Covey through page 18.

I am already completely captivated by this phenomenally well-written book.  We talked about the beauty of the idea of having a “Book of Greats”.  The newly acquired word in our collective vocabulary is “GENSHAI”, it means that you should never treat another person in a manner that would make them feel small.

Reading of the amazing Dr. Viktor Frankl in this section of the book inspired us to add “Man’s Search for Meaning” as a possible next book in The Book Readers Club.

Homework:

On page 17 the homework is explained.  Identify and Honor a Practitioner of Genshai.  Select someone whose behavior best reflects the principles of Genshai.  Write that person’s name in the box on page 17.  Reach out to and teach that person the meaning of “Genshai” and explain why he or she personifies this word.

Looking forward to this great book with excitement,
