GTY reminds me of GTO

I used to be a fan of anime. I watched them a lot during my undergraduate days. One of my favorite series is Great Teacher Onizuka or GTO.

Well recently, a friend of mine lent me a book called Greater Than Yourself (GTY) by Steve Farber. Notice the similarity? GTY -> GTO. Nah, although they both convey a similar message in a way but that is not the point.

The point is, this book is by far, the best book leadership book I've read so far. Its simplicity and direct messages could not be clearer to the readers. The funny thing is, we've all known the concepts but in practice, I've never personally experienced it.

Ok cutting the story short, I won't be explaining what the book is all about but rather, I'd like to share the three (3) basic concepts in GTY:
  1. Expand Yourself
  2. Give Yourself
  3. Replicate Yourself
Again, I'm not going to elaborate each of the concept above. My recommendation is, buy the book, understand the concepts and practice them.

Alright then, I'm off to find and start my first GTY project.
