Spark by Jason Jaggard – Book Review
On a scale of 1 to 100, how satisfied are you with your life?
Are there areas where you’d like to make changes – real, sustainable changes – but aren’t sure how to begin?
Do you dream of not only changing your life, but the lives of those around you?
If so, consider adding Jason Jaggard’s book Spark – Transform Your World One Small Risk At A Time to your reading list. In this book, Jason shares how transformation begins with the choices you make and the risks you take.
According to Jason, a spark is a choice… a small risk… a decision to move from inaction to action.
Jason believes we need to overcome our fear of risk-taking to begin the process of transformation because small risks can result in huge changes, both in our personal lives and in the world. He defines small risks as immediate, controllable, challenging, and positive. To help us overcome our aversion to risk-taking, he created a company called Spark Good that invites people to start Spark Groups and support one another in taking the risk to be extraordinary.
Here are a few of the questions you’ll explore as you read this book?
- What does it look like to create a lifestyle of healthy risk-taking?
- Why do the standard ways that we learn things almost always leave us unchanged?
- How can we learn in different ways so we can more rapidly become who we were meant to be?
Most importantly, you’ll be challenged to ask yourself:
- What’s one risk I can take this week to make myself a better person or the world a better place?
As I read this book, I could not help but remember that “it only takes a spark to get a fire going…”
I found Spark highly motivating and I’m sure that you will, too!
