Tuesday’s Titles with Yvonne Quinn

Chop Wood Carry Water by Joshua Medcalf

This wonderful book helps you to focus on becoming great. Joshua talks about the philosophy of turning dreams into actions. “You can never be great without chopping wood and carrying water”. You cannot build a house without laying out your foundations.

Wood and water mean different things to all of us, so it is about discovering what your wood and water are; reading more books? Going on a trip? Getting experience in another area of the business? Discovering what you love!

“The person who is simply focused on maximising what they can learn and how they can grow will become much greater than the person who sees life as one continual test to prove themselves”.

This book helps you to view the process of carrying water and chopping wood as an opportunity for your own personal growth.
