Some good thought provoking content, but not convinced by all opinions
28 February 2018
There some interesting content in this book that reminds you of the importance of being humble (Donald Trump is apparently a great example here... according to him <- my comment not the author's).
There are also a few points I simply disagree with. One is the negative view of anyone who jumps from idea to idea or project to project. This isn't a necessarily a reflection of egotistical behaviour, which is implied by the author. Any study of personality profiles like Myers Briggs can explain this tendancy with some personalities. I am an INTP and this trait is common with my personality type. The Belbin look at team roles based on profiling also highlights that certain people are plants or shapers of new ideas, but rarely follow through and are completer-finishers. It's not a 'fault', but it is a characteristic or behaviour. Good teams balance the roles as described by Belbin.
Another point was that anyone that needs recognition is egotistical. Again, this isn't necessarily egotistical, but points to different personality types that need feedback.
Maybe I misunderstood the author, but I'm not sure Ryan is explaining himself well enough.
