Whatcha Reading, Schwartzy?

This book is a beast, but I am already learning a few “tools”.  For instance, doing the 5 minute journaling is by far the way to go.  Also, Tim is going to get me off my crazy coffee kick and into tea.  I know it.  I started listening to the audio version of this book, but it’s really more of a reference – something to take away pieces that work which leads to cramming bookmarks in a whole bunch of places.  As I go through this, I’ll blog with the tools that I think are amazing and because I know who you are and you are just like me (lol), you will think they are too.

GitHub & PTS

This book, well speaks to me.  It’s about time to get the wheels greased on this project.  The problem is that I am doing PTS as well, and I just got a teaching gig.  I am spreading myself too thin here, in my humble opinion.  So let’s take a poll in this next moment… ok, I am going to stick with PTS and put this one on the shelf to pick up another day.  Maybe in my PTS breaks.

Also, yay to another week!  Here are some of my habits – yesterday was MLK day, so I didn’t do that hawt, but I’ll get some checkmarks today.  Live on, people.  So I have exercise on there, 20 minutes at least 4x this week, gotta get in meditation, which Waking Up with Sam Harris is the way to go.  Read 10 pages, which comes from The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen, study, which will be the PTS, and fingers, well, I have a bad habit of putting my fingers in my mouth, so let’s not do that.

Robin Sharma’s Books to the World

Robin Sharma’s books are great.  Here is what I have read from him so far:

  • Family Wisdom from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
  • The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life
  • The Secret Letters Of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

I am currently working on the The Everyday Hero Manifesto.  The one that has changed my routine at least on a daily basis is the 5 AM club.  This new book, The Everyday Hero Manifesto is powerful, and hard to put down.  It’s full of great wisdom on how to lead a successful life on your terms and I highly recommend it.  The main theme in it that I am finding so far is how to be a great person, and how to respect, honor, and appreciate the world we live in.  It’s a beautiful manifesto to live by.
