Reading is a wonderful thing. It puts new ideas into your brain. It fosters creativity, new concepts and learning. It has taken me to some amazing places over the past few months. I have walked with Phil Knight around the world and into Japan to get a manufacturer for his future Nike shoes. I spent time with Ed Catmull at the Pixar campus learning how to overcome obstacles that stifle creativity. I won’t soon forget the lessons of extreme ownership from the streets of IRAQ with Navy SEAL officers Leif Babin and Jocko Willink. I took these journeys and many more with the 97th Floor book club.
