The Fred Factor is a business/life management book about how bringing passion and excellence to your job, activities, and relationships can make your life more extraordinary. It’s a very quick read, and at first I wondered if I really wanted to read the book since I read pretty widely in this genre.
However, after I finished the book I found I had gleaned several solid take-aways that made it to my idea page. Although the book focuses primarily on work, I found the principles perhaps even more applicable to my family and friend relationships than to my work. The book is a good resource for small, daily habit changes that can add up to great improvements in how you interact and relate to other people.
For that reason, I’d recommend the book. If you work in a corporate or traditional office setting you may find that Sanborn’s ideas are also helpful to you professionally. In any case, as I mentioned, it’s a very fast read, so The Fred Factor could be a great way to amp up your ordinary.
What sort of life management ideas do you like best? Big, sweeping systems? Or ideas for smaller, incremental changes?
