As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What fuels his impact?
I am inspired by the way he discusses faith, Jesus, loving others, and living a life of adventure. Get your notebooks out; Bob came with some wisdom. Everybody Always When I was reading his book, I was astonished when he said his child got into skydiving. He talks about the balance between manipulation and support as a parent. He takes it further by saying we should be students in every aspect of life which will bring about more kindness in the world.
