The Go-Giver

My 10-year-old son finished the “Go-Giver” recently. It’s one of the most beloved business books with the central theme around giving.

I asked him to recap the most valuable lessons he learned from reading the book. I share them below exactly as he shared them with me.

1. Money isn’t everything – there can be other things that have value instead of just money.

2. The key to successful giving is to be open to receiving – you have to be open to receiving from others. If you’re not open to receiving you’re taking away someone else’s chance to give.

3. People aren’t always what they seem – You might think that one person is something but they might be different from what you were thinking they were initially.

Kids have the capacity to learn if we expose them to the opportunity for it.

The “Go-Giver” wouldn’t be considered a book for kids but its structure and story lend themselves nicely.

The lessons are timeless.

Our kids will surprise us with what they can handle.

Don’t be afraid to let them step outside the box and explore.

Crafting well-meaning and articulate messages can take a lot of time to learn.

And that’s the rub of it.

We have to write thousands of bad messages in order to refine our skills, shorten the message, and get specific on the value.

That rationale can apply to many things we do in life. We must be comfortable being bad at something in the early stages in order to hurdle that gap from not knowing to knowing. From novice to proficient.

Once we start to “get it” and are feeling comfortable then we know we’ve acquired the correct knowledge, mostly through consistency and practice.

That’s when it might be time to look at new ways to be bad again.

To become a beginner learner in a new area.

To once again scale another mountain for growth opportunities that we haven’t yet considered.

Least Common Denominator

Changing the way our brain processes and learns things can be impactful on our growth and one of the best ways to get in this state is by being a beginner learner. It’s by getting well outside our comfort zone and having to rely on parts of the brain that we might not utilize as much. As we all know, most days we turn on “autopilot” and coast with our normal routines.

If we want to try and be a beginner learner again but don’t know where to start, try to do some things tomorrow with our least dominant hand. 

Brush our teeth, eat our food, tie our shoes. There is a myriad of things we do all day every day and don’t even consider the alternatives.

By trying this, we have to slow down and think about the process and steps to completion by using our opposite hand. It activates a different part of our brain and it shakes us a bit because it’s so foreign.

But, it allows us to see a different perspective and start to map out new ways to perform common tasks. 

Making what is normally easy for us hard can help trigger that part of the brain that we might have to use in situations down the road and it allows us to practice recognizing new patterns and getting more comfortable with situations that we don’t recognize.

That’s a good thing. That’s how we grow to think differently than we do today. 

That’s how we become a better version of ourselves tomorrow.
