Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life edited by Bryan Curtis
Classic Wisdom for the Professional Life is a collection of quotes and words of wisdom from a wide range of historical and modern-day leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. Sometimes the day to day drudgery of going to the office can overshadow the satisfaction and happiness we’d otherwise find in a job well done. Other times we find ourselves in a place that disconnects us from ourselves and what we want to contribute to the world. These quick snippets serve as reminders filled with encouragement, insight, and simple classic wisdom that really held my attention and made me reevaluate where I choose to spend the majority of my day and the attitude I’ll bring there. While I was disappointed that the quotes were not separated out categorically I would still recommend this book to others. In particular I think it would make a great office gift.
