Lead with the best version of yourself.

Top 10 Most-Read Articles of 2020


In 2020, a small team of volunteers worked behind the scenes at From the Green Notebook to produce over 100 published articles read by almost half a million people. This team is a great example of how a few people with a purpose can have an outsized impact.

The submissions we received this year represent a diverse set of perspectives, coming from all ranks and branches of our military, our civilian workforce, and our civilian partners who study and write about leadership. 

Thank you to all of you who contributed your thoughts to the blog and the profession this year!
