Many of us would like to see our children and grandchildren carry on the same family values that we hold. Many want their students or company employees to reach a great level of success, or continue leading the company into a better and brighter new era. Curtis Clewett’s 3G: The Art of Living Beyond Your Life lays out how you can go about making those desires into realities. This is a simple, though not easy, guide which demonstrates practical ways that cause those values most important to you to stick not only to the generation following you, but to the generation which follows them. In 3G, you will learn the difference between controlling how things progress with succeeding generation and purposely instilling the core values and creativity that are able to adapt to the changes which come in the generations beyond. Curtis Clewett’s 3G is full of appropriate illustrations, focus questions, and an addendum of 21 practical ideas for applying 3G to families and leadership teams.
If you truly desire to leave a legacy or to affect the lives of future generations, then you need to not only get the book, 3G: The Art of Living Beyond Your Life, but you need to adapt it and apply it to your own life as a parent or as a leader. Curtis Clewett has provided plenty of practical examples from Abraham to Socrates to his own experience with his family and the organization King’s Kids to make this book easy to read and understand. The book is not only about how to utilize a 3G approach, but is itself a 3G approach, which asks probing questions meant to help you focus on how you can make use of what you are reading. Practical, accurate and potentially life-changing, 3G will help you refocus what you do and how you do it in order to affect future generations.
