Book Review – Become a Game Changer

“Become a Game Changer” is a solid book that brings together the thinking across multiple disciplines of managing an organisation or your own business. Mark brings together a collection of thoughts for how to take your passion and turn it into your reason for being.

It is summarised best by this quote, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” by Mark Twain.

This book outlines the importance of starting with your purpose, and then driving your actions to achieve the value you wish to provide. Albert Einstein recognised this when he said,

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

Mark Brigden, outlines that “you can only control three things: The thoughts you think, The pictures you see, The actions you take”.  He provides a simple and clear read for someone wanting to understand how to embrace technology in their business, including the usage of the internet, including social media, tools to promote your organisation / business / idea.

Mark details, “It’s a long road, but it’s not hard work if you’re having fun doing it”.  This book is not hard work however, and is a simple and concise read of key principles to consider in driving to your dream.
