Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall In Love With the Process of Becoming Great by Joshua Medcalf
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a great book to read as a group or as an individual! My boss chose this book for us to read as an office to see how we could improve ourselves individually and as a staff.
In this story, John has a strong desire to become a samurai warrior. He goes away to samurai school and quickly learns from his sensei, Akira, that the key to becoming the best samurai warrior is to chop wood and carry water. John learns a series of lessons over his five years with Akira. Some of the lessons he learned were easier than others but none taught him as much as chopping wood and carrying water. You must start at the bottom in order to be successful and to learn from mistakes made along the way. The second biggest take away for me personally from reading this book is to remember you are building your own house.
This is a super quick read chocked full of practical advice for those looking to make a difference!
