“Greatness is not for the chosen few

Greatness is for the few who choose”

Jonathan Metcalf - Chop Wood Carry Water

I read Chop Wood Carry Water this weekend and it is highly suggested. It is a simple book with an easy reading level that you could read or listen to in a few hours. One of the reasons that I liked it so much was that the author was able to bring together so many key ingredients to success and happiness into one simple story. He did not belabor these ideas for 20 pages like others, he simply told a story that has great meaning.

I highly suggest that everyone read this book. I plan on buying several copies and giving them to people that may find value in them. The audiobook is great because it is read by the author and I put it on 1.25x and breezed right through it.
