Finally subscribed to Robin Sharma

My brother introduced me to Robin Sharma.. well not in person but over the internet by letting me know about his website and his works. Parag, my brother has also been doing quite a bit of reading and has recently finished with the "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" authored by Robin Sharma.

Sharma Leadership International Inc. (SLI) is a global training firm with a single focus: to help people in organizations Lead Without a Title. We passionately believe that you don't need a title to show leadership. Their clients include many of the best-known companies on the planet including Microsoft, Nike, FedEx, IBM, BP, KPMG and GE. SLI does business in over 55 countries and has a proven record for delivering winning results for clients for nearly 15 years.

Founded by Robin Sharma, who in an independent 2007 survey of over 22,000 businesspeople was named the #2 leadership guru in the world (source: along with Jack Welch and Tom Peters, SLI is dedicated to helping build leaders. Pure and simple.

Robin Sharma is one of the most widely read authors in the world with his blockbusters such as The Greatness Guide (HarperCollins) and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (HarperCollins) not only topping bestseller lists but being translated into nearly 50 languages. He is also a trusted advisor to the media on leadership issues and has appeared on CNN, CNBC and NBC.

I had briefly checked out the website & had planned for subscribing to his newsletters bu hadn't done that till day before. So finally I started getting the newsletter coming into my inbox.

This is the excerpt of the Newsletter.. Rest can be found on the website or one can subscibe to it:

#1. Protect Your Thinking. 
#2. Take the long view. 
#3. Outwork your competition.

#4. Stay Strong. No point in letting the stress and challenge of these interesting days ruin your health-or break your spirit. Tough times make great leaders. Maintain the champion's mindset by reading uplifting books, associating with excellent people and making time each day to renew your self. Oh, and take good care of your health. Please. Now isn't the time to neglect daily exercise. And those who don't make time for fitness must eventually make time for illness.

I personally liked the 4th point and I would try to follow the regime as suggested..

Look forward to the next newsletter. Till then...keep leading.. or reading....
