Summer's almost done but my reading list is not. How did that happen? In fact, the list is getting longer. A sale at a bookstore will do that.
Years ago, while running my photography business, I would rise before the sun to spend an hour reading, studying, and thinking. I like getting up early. I love thinking and creating new ideas. Why am I not doing this now?
Bad habits. Things like hitting the computer message boards before breakfast or watching re-runs of JAG. Or just plain piddling.
If it were quality things like spending time with The Pilot Guy or exercise that would be different. Both of those things deserve their own catagory of time devotion. But I'm just not getting things done.
Time to do better. Dust off those old habits and get back into them. Hopefully, they'll fit like well worn and comfortable shoes.
Look for reviews of these books in coming posts.
What's that you're asking?
Oh, you want to know the titles and author names of the books on the reading lists? Why? Will there be a test? No? Yes? Maybe?
