From Within The Pages

This is as simple as simple comes. From Within The Pages, is my podcast where I read a chapter or passage from one of the books that I'm reading at that time. I have urged myself to make time to read more and this podcast is my 'accountability' clause. If I don't keep reading then I won't have any regular content to put up, and I would rather that didn't happen.

I hope you enjoy the chapters from the books I read. They will no doubt be wide and varied but will always have struck a chord or excited me in some way.

Episode 2 – Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey

Todays chapter is from a book that made a huge impact in my life at a time when it needed it most. I had just left the 'office environment' and set up as a self employed tennis coached. Seven Habits was a book I read after hearing about it from a friend and picked up a tatty second hand copy at a bookshop. The book was a revelation. None more so than the chapter I read in this episode. It's subject is of something that we all intrinsically know about but reading it and having it explained is very powerful, as I found out. I try to pick this book up every so often and scan the pages of this chapter. It puts my mind back in the same positive, driven and excited place it did all those years ago on first reading.

I hope you enjoy listening, it's a long episode but well worth it in my opinion so I hope you can find the time and as always, you can pick up a copy of the book to read the rest at the link below.
