Aspiring House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has recently dominated news headlines and feeds. His multiple attempts to become the next Speaker have established an epic political losing streak.
I personally admire his determination and resiliency. It reminds me of a Zig Ziglar quote:
“The Difference Between a Big Shot and a Little Shot is that a Big Shot is Just a Little Shot that Kept on Shooting.”
And as I publish this, Rep. McCarthy is still shooting.
But enough about the political leadership circus world. There’s a different Kevin McCarthy I’d like you to meet.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy
By Office of the House Republican Leader (2019)

Kevin W. McCarthy is the world’s leading innovator and authority about clarity of purpose and, more importantly, powerfully putting purpose to work, or being on-purpose.

He’s the author of two highly impactful two books that I’ve read, recommended and gifted for years.
Kevin W. McCarthy Books
#1 Recommendation: For Developing Your Self-Leadership
This quick reading parable is a guide to being and living “On-Purpose” Of course, to do so, you need to have a clear defined purpose for yourself.
When you’re “On-Purpose”, you develop an enhanced awareness for being either on or off purpose with what ever you do.
#2 Recommendation: For Developing Your Formal Leadership
Also a quick reading parable. It’s a guide to creating an “On-Purpose Business”. A tool for holistic strategic thinking. I integrated several of the book’s concept when facilitating strategy session.
As Daniel Pink describes in his book on motivation, DRIVE, everyone want to feel part of something bigger than themselves.
This book provides a framework for generating that kind of engagement.
I urge you to take a break from the political circus to invest some time on yourself. Buy and read one or both of these books. You’ll thank me as others have.
