I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison
This book is actually a collection of short stories by Harlan Ellison. All are sci-fi based in a sense. Some realm of reality on one or two as well. They are mind binding and have an significant meaning through out each of them. He writes stories that just get inside your head.
Read this book, don’t even question it if you don’t like sci-fi or not. This book will take you to a different world and make you think.
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
I’ll make it sweet and simple, the book is about focusing your efforts on only the essentials. Get rid of all the other things in life that are taking your time.
Very good book, highly recommend. I honestly went into it thinking, I wouldn’t like it but I loved it. The examples and the stories all tied together perfectly. I recommend everyone read this book! So many things I learned and grew from this book. I honestly took my time with it because of how much I got from it. I spent 4 days on it. So I could truly digest it all.
Been really difficult lately to stay on top of reading. I just had way too much to do and too many places to be. This is the week I make it all up and get caught up fast. I have a bunch of books on my desk and I’m dedicating time to just knock book after book out. The issue hasn’t been so much getting it done as much as its just having the time lately. Even when I take 5 minutes here and there to read, its been hard. But I’m working through it all and I plan to accomplish my goal no matter what.
This is the year I knock out some really exciting and difficult goals. In fact I’m working on a massive goal. Bigger than this. World record level type stuff. Should be cool, working on it yet, lots of players that need to be aligned before it happens.
