How’s this for a book to kick off the new year!? This will be meeting #30 of our book club, so come launch 2024 with your favourite rag-tag bunch of personal development rascals 😎. Forget about making new year’s resolutions and calling it a day, let’s talk about developing the character skills and systems that will help us succeed in 2024 and beyond!

Join us in January to discuss ‘Hidden Potential: The Science of Achieving Greater Things’, the latest release by New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Originals, Adam Grant.

From the book jacket:

We live in a world that’s obsessed with talent. We celebrate gifted students in school, natural athletes in sports, and child prodigies in music. But admiring people who start out with innate advantages leads us to overlook the distances we ourselves can travel. We can all improve at improving. And when opportunity doesn’t knock, there are ways to build a door.

Hidden Potential offers a new framework for raising aspirations and exceeding expectations. Adam Grant weaves together groundbreaking evidence, surprising insights, and vivid storytelling that takes us from the classroom to the boardroom, the playgrond to the olympics, and underground to outer space. He shows that progress depends less on how hard you work than how well you learn. Growth is not about the genius you possess – it’s about the character you develop. Grant explores how to build the character skills and motivational structures to realize our own potential, and how to design systems that create opportunities for those who have been underrated and overlooked.

This book reveals how anyone can rise to achieve greater things. The true measure of your potential is not the height of the peak you’ve reached, but how far you’ve climbed to get there.

At this meetup, we will discuss Grant’s insights on the changes we can make to increase our ability to achieve ‘greater things’. Love the book? Hate the book? No time to read the book? You’re all welcome! Message me if you’d like to attend in person, as space is limited. But remember, you can always join us on Zoom as well 😊
