The World is a book and those who do not travel read
only one page.
- Saint Augustine
Whether you're off on yet another
business trip, taking an afternoon jaunt to a nearby town, or finally heading out
on your dream trip around the world, make room in your bag for The Power of Travel
by Steve Zikman. You'll gain more wisdom and insight from your travels if you reflect
on the themes woven through this gem.
Ultimately, leadership development
is really self development. I've found no better way of discovering what makes me
tick than a trip to a new locale. Open-minded travel is a powerful route to personal
growth, and Zikman's book is a thought-provoking guide for embracing the lessons
of life and leadership along the way.
Like a sculptor, travel removes the surrounding rock to
reveal our Essence... Whether we travel for a day, a week, or a year, travel presents
us with the opportunity to change ourselves in fundamental ways... We are able to
look at life from different angles, openly and freely...we gain perspective,
a sense of ourselves, and a sense of our place in the larger world.
from The Power of Travel
Get out of that armchair and give the Power
of Travel a try.
not cease from exploration
And at the end of all our exploring
Will be able
to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
