52 Weeks, 52 Books – Book 10Ordering my Life

I - like many people - have a busy life. I work a full-time job while I'm working to build a consulting business from the ground up, and I try to be a good husband and father at the same time. Oh, and did I mention that we get possession of a new house in … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Book 10Ordering my Life

52 Weeks, 52 Books – Book 9

I'm not sure that this post will do justice to this incredible book. It's not often that you stumble across a life-changing book like this one, especially when you order it off the internet instead of getting it from the bookstore. Frankly, I just thought that the title sounded interesting, so I added it to … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Book 9

52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 6, Book 6

This was, again, an audio book as well as one that I listened to more for personal enjoyment than for any work-related reason.

In this case, it is a future that is less likely, but … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 6, Book 6

This was a challenging read for me because … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 5, Book 5

On top of that, the book I expected to finish this week has some very challenging themes and ideas that have … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 4, Book 4

52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 3, Book 3

This week's book has actually been a few weeks in progress and is one of the many books I listen to rather than read. My job involves a lot of travelling, and one of the things that passes the time while I'm driving is to listen to audio books of all types. This one happened … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 3, Book 3

52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 1, Book 1

One of the personal challenges I've set for myself is to read/listen to an average of at least one book per week for the entire year. I used to be a voracious reader, sometimes ripping through five or more books in a week. Life, work changes, and family have all made my quantity of reading … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Week 1, Book 1
