After exploring the topic of how to best present the Rotary Thought of the Day (versus invocation or prayer - see previous posts), I thought I would pass along some of my favorite sources of inspirational and thought-provoking ideas. The idea here is to find non-religious, inspiring ideas when it is your turn to offer the thought of the day.
Here is a list of books that are great sources of inspirational and thought-provoking ideas. Find the books at your favorite library or bookseller or click on the author's name for more information:
- True North by Bill George
- Finding Our Way by Meg Wheatley
- Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander
- How by Dov Seidman
- The Big Moo by The Group of 33 , Edited by Seth Godin
- Most books by Peter Drucker
- Good to Great for the Social Sectors by Jim Collins
- Change the way you see Everything by Cramer and Wasiak
- Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
If you don't own these books, try looking up the books at www.amazon.com and use their "look inside" feature to read an excerpt that just might contain the quote you are looking for.
