March 26

Principle: Humility, be teachable, have life long learning. 

You all should have received an email letting you know that you'll need the book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie and that we'll read it all by the end of April.  If you haven't yet acquired a copy of that book, it is highly recommended that you do so you can stay on top of the reading schedule(see below.) Our study of this book will be fascinating! 

For the next few weeks the inspirements are going to be a little different. 

The requirements for earning Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master level work are as follows:
Apprentice: Read an hour's worth of the readings
Journeyman: Finish the readings
Master: Finish the readings and write your thoughts and insights/inspiration in your Truth Book about the readings in a meaningful way. Remember, this is YOUR education! 

On April 2nd we have a real treat for you. The author of the book "Latter-day Responsibility", Connor Boyack, will be coming to speak to us in Core Leadership.  In preparation for his coming we'd like each of you to read the chapter on Education from his book. This chapter is one of the foundational resources of our commonwealth and is really excellent! 

The inspirement for this week:

Read the chapter "Education" from Latter-day Responsibility, keeping in mind the requirements for earning an A, J, or M. (see above) An email will be sent out with the chapter. Mr. Boyack has given us permission to share this chapter with our students.
 You'll want to read and finish this chapter this week so you can get started on "How to Win Friends and Influence People" next week.

We encourage you to underline things in this chapter that you like or think are important and write your thoughts or questions in the margins. Dig in to this chapter and see what gold nuggets you find!

Below is the reading schedule for "How to Win Friends and Influence People."  Please acquire this book asap and be ready to begin reading it next week. You will be sooooo glad you read this whole book!!!! The things you learn will come in handy in so many ways in your life!
