12. Assignment for Section 2

  1. Read the following sections of the Student’s Handbook for Graduate Course on Book Distribution (download PDF):
    • pp. 10-12 – Standards for Book Distribution
    • pp. 24-26 – Guidelines on Appropriate Lifestyle
    • p. 43 – ISKCON Personnel Philosophy and Ethics
  1. Take the Lifestyle Assessment (download PDF) to see how the lifestyle characteristics of book distributors currently apply to you and identify opportunities for growth. Assess yourself on how successfully you apply yourself to each item. On a paper or notepad, ring one number for each from 0 (terrible) to 10 (excellent). A score of 5 is average. Put 5 if one item doesn’t apply to you (e.g. if you don’t drive). Add up your total. Choose the items with the 2 lowest scores, and ask someone for help to improve them.
