This means that if you want to become antifragile it is important not just to read these blogs but also to practise them. After all, you cannot learn to swim just by reading a book about swimming.
If you want to get better at sports you have to practise. If you want to play a musical instrument you have to practise. If you want to become antifragile you also have to practise.
The book, Inner Leadership, will give you a series of tools and exercises that work to build your skills step by step. These blogs will show you some, but not all, of those steps. And the way that you then strengthen and build your abilities at the seven competencies of antifragility is by practising them.
To make this easier, Inner Leadership comes with a free downloadable electronic workbook. There’s also a large format paperback workbook. And you can use paper and pen.
But as every musician knows, the only way to get to Carnegie Hall is by practice.
Inner Leadership gives you a very practical set of tools for defining both what ‘Carnegie Hall’ means to you and for building the skills that will take you there.
All you have to do is practice.
Do you know what your equivalent of Carnegie Hall looks like? Are you willing to practice the skills that will inspire you and others to take you there? Do you want to think about changing or do you want to change?
Adapted from Inner Leadership: a framework and tools for building inspiration in times of change.
