Book #10 – The Generosity Factor

generosity factor coverThe Generosity Factor – Ken Blanchard/S. Truett Cathy

Zondervan – 2002 – ISBN: 0-310-24660-1

I picked this book up at Half Price Books for the HCCSA monthly business person’s luncheon.  We give away a book at each lunch and I thought it would be great to check this one out. I think it was a good book.  Ken Blanchard explains that the book is partially based on S. Truett Cathy’s life.  I don’t know that I would recommend it to anyone who is not already a believer.

Here are the action points I came away with from this book:

  1. Lack of generosity creates a lack of significance [ and lack of relevance (mine)].
  2. We all have four commodities to give: Time, Talent, Treasure, and Touch (pg. 42).
  3. Generosity stems from understanding God owns everything (pg. 46).
  4. Generosity is impacting the lives of others.
  5. Generosity is an attitude.  It must be cultivated daily.
  6. Big difference between “held” values and “operational” values.
  7. Three Ms – Master, Mission, Mate.

5 keys to the Generosity Factor

  3. Action is required.
