“Die Empty” by Todd Henry, may sound like a slightly morbid book title, but it actually encourages us to make the most of our time here on earth and unleash our very best work each and every day. Die Empty is not a book filled with empty promises of sustained motivation, but rather focuses on defining your passions, setting goals, overcoming the fear of failure, embracing discomfort, maintaining your purpose, and increasing your daily effectiveness. This book is filled with great tips on how to increase the power of your life, and it cover a little bit of everything, and it is a great book to read if you are ready to unleash your best work each day.
Die empty focuses on several major themes, the most important of which is continual growth. As time goes on we tend to grow comfortable and complacent in life; Todd Henry gives us a ton of tips on how to embrace uncertainty and use challenge to cultivate personal growth each day.
A common rut many people fall into is the rut of working without a purpose, and by focusing solely on results and numbers we often neglect spending time challenging ourselves and growing as people. When we stop growing we ultimately stop thriving, and then we are just holding onto what we have.
The book is written in chapters with several tidbits and sections present in each chapter. Each chapter features a nice little review section where Todd sums up the main points of the section and gives us a few tips on how to implement the book ideas into our own lives.
If you often find yourself working hard, and being busy, but if you are not increasing your position in life, it is likely because you have fallen into the trap of mediocrity.
