Those of you who have followed Tom Peters over the years know how much he’s contributed to the growth of excellence in businesses worldwide.    His book In Search of Excellence he co-authored with Robert Waterman is considered “the greatest business book of all time” by many and indispensable by most.

Well, Tom has a new book called The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE.  I am thrilled and honored Mr. Peters included of my essays as one of the ways to pursue excellence!   Mine is pursuit #50 starting on page 136 about how you have to show up to move up.  You can read my contribution by downloading the Acrobat pdf of it here (posted with permission):  Show Up! (It’s a Start.)

The Little Big Things (163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE)

My copy of Little BIG Things arrived last week and it is indeed a BIG book – a whopping 576 pages in all.  But it isn’t the type of book you read cover-to-cover in one sitting.  All of the 163 pursuits are condensed nuggets of excellence building tips and strategies.  Pick one, read it, think about it and digest it.

There is a lot you can take out of just one of the tips.  If you employ all 163 you’ll be unstoppable!

This sounds like a good book, I am reading one by Paul McKenna at present which is excellent. I might well get this to read next so thank you for the recommendation.

Congratulations Brad! Looks like a great read. I have to pick this up soon. Unfortunately, I’m about 200 books behind, and this looks like it’s going to leapfrog over them all.
