This week’s book review is The Connection Algorithm by Jesse Tevelow.
Tevelow explains how important it is for each of us to expand our networks. Establishing a solid network will allow our personal growth to expand exponentially because we will be able to leverage the experience and contacts of the people in our network. One of the best ways to expand your network is to establish connections with people that he calls Connectors – “thought leaders, experts and influence in a given discipline or range of disciplines.”
My takeaway from this book is Tevelow’s formula for personal growth:
f(pg) = (ri)(x) + (re)(y)
- pg = Personal Growth
- ri = Risks
- re = Relationships
Basically, personal growth is a function of the risks you are willing to take and the relationships that you are able to cultivate along the way.
