I’m particularly pleased to share today’s blog with you and invite you to listen to my interview with Dr. Marshall Goldsmith about his new book: Triggers (Creating Behavior that Lasts; Becoming the Person You Want to Be). It’s 21 minutes long.
Marshall wrote the Foreword to Change Your Questions, Change Your Life. His last book, the bestselling What Got You Here Won’t Get You There is a classic. He is considered the world’s most influential leadership thinker as well as one of the top executive coaches in the world.
Marshall and I share a passion for the power of questions. What I love about Triggers is that it’s so practical in terms of implementing question strategies into your everyday life. This is insurance so that you succeed with the behavioral changes you want.
Marshall himself has a two-minute call everyday with a coach to keep him on track for his goals. Here are six questions he thinks are important to ask every day.
- Did I do my best to set clear goals today?
- Did I do my best to make progress toward my goals today?
- Did I do my best to find meaning today?
- Did I do my best to be happy today?
- Did I do my best to build positive relationships today?
- Did I do my best to be fully engaged today?
Marshall’s enthusiasm for what readers can get from his book is contagious and inspiring. I hope you’ll click on the far left of the audio player below to listen to this interview, and also buy his book and reap the rewards. You can get it at Amazon.com by clicking here.
