A Real Dating Profile
--- Laws of attraction ---
People ask me all of the time what I'm looking for in a mate. Actually, they don't. And that's probably pretty good, because I'd just tell them it's less about what I'm looking for and more about who I'm trying to become. I believe "like attracts like," or in the words of the God of the Universe, "wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light."

Introducing my Top 10 Business & Self-Help Reading List

In truth, I can never answer the question "What book would you recommend?" with a list. Nevertheless, the books on this list are loaded with near-unending coolness that, if internalized, will revolutionize your life.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Stephen R. Covey

A paradigm-establishing, building-blocks type book that will give you the information you need to begin to see the world in a different light and find success that you are personally satisfied with.

Multipliers

Liz Wiseman & Greg McKeown

This is for all of the well-meaning, as well as the self-confident, managers out there. It's also for any who wish to make a sustainable influence in their workplace.

Leadership & Self-deception; The Outward Mindset

The Arbinger Institute

These are the books that started it all, and the books that will challenge the way you see the world. Are you an effective leader, really? It’s not what you think. 😊

The 4 Disciplines of Execution

Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, & Jim Huling

While most of the books I’ve selected are about changing the way we see the problem, this one is about changing the way we go about solving it.

Difficult Conversations; Thanks for the Feedback

Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, Sheila Heen

Two books by the same authors (Bruce Patton is only on the 1st book) with similar themes. However, the contexts are different and the principles worth reading twice! Apply these ones!

Good to Great

Jim Collins

I reference the principles in this book regularly, especially its observations on goal-setting and technology. It’s not what you would expect. :)

Mindset

Carol Dweck

One of the few books that I love that describes how the way we see things completely alters our behavior, without us having to think about our behavior.

The 3rd Alternative

Stephen R. Covey

One of the first “popular-press” business books I ever read, but one of the most important. I recommend the audiobook over the printed book. 😊
