Reading: I really don’t know where I come up with these books to read. Well I buy them at Amazon but it never ceases to amaze me how I can stumble upon what has to be the best books written. Certainly not all books are good or enjoyable to read, I remember reading badly written or boring books, it was during a time called “college”. But I got to tell you I haven’t read but one not so good book in the last 25 or so I’ve read.

You’re Right: I recently bought Pour Your Heart Into It by Howard Schultz (the CEO of Starbucks). I’m not really sure why I bought the book, actually I was watching tv and Shultz and Dell were doing a commercial about something, I really have no idea and something in my head said, “Nick you should see if he has a book out”. So I checked and he did. Back to the main point. I began to read this book over lunch knowing I would glean something. Little did I know I would learn more in 30 pages than I have in months. I’m not sure how I know it’s “right” but somehow when I read his ideas I just know that as I am reading I am finding golden nuggets page after page. Kinda Weird yet invigorating.
