Learn from Others

Mastering Mistake Making {Book Recommendation}

John Pearson’s new book is a highly engaging look at 25 of his most memorable mistakes and what he learned.

From the front cover to the back cover, this book is engaging, insightful, easy to understand, profound, and entertaining. (That’s not a misprint. This book is entertaining and funny!) 

Mastering Mistake Making; My 25 Memorable Mistakes - And What I Learned by John Pearson is a personal and transparent deep look at his life and leadership learnings. Reading it will save you a lot of time and grief if you are on a path to be a better person and leader. 

It is also in the form of a workbook, so you can make notes and look at illustrations. The humility and profound amount of information make it something you really need to read.

It covers a wide range of topics on life and leadership. My favorite mistake is No. 2: Reading and Not Learning. 

Why do I read things and then not learn and put them into practice? As John explains, “leaders are readers” but not all readers are lifelong learners. 

Get the book. Read it. Learn from it. You will be a better person.

Thanks, John, for putting the work in to make this a gift to all of us!

About Bob Lonac

Today, friends call me a leader of leaders. But this wasn’t always the case.

During my life of working in faith-based, Christ-centered ministry, relationships have proved to be the common thread. My passion is helping other people grow through one-on-one mentoring and small group training. I love building teams. I love seeing people and organizations succeed. You can read more about my story and what I'm doing now.

I am still learning a lot and it would be fantastic to share this journey with you! If you haven’t yet, sign up for my email newsletter so we can stay connected.
