I find that a number of genres inspire me: philosophy, poetry, history, even articles of various sorts.

Midway along the journey of our life
I woke to find myself in a dark wood,
for I had wandered off from the straight path.

How hard it is to tell what it was like,
this wood of wilderness, savage and stubborn
(the thought of it brings back all my old fears),

a bitter place! Death could scarce be bitterer.
But if I would show the good that came of it
I must ta...

Peace of Soul by Fulton J. Sheen
Rate this book

Throughout this book, I found myself amazed that Fulton Sheen had written it in 1949. His wisdom is timeless and his insights profound. Now “Venerable,” Sheen argues that we are seeking answers in the wrong places and decries much of the scientism an ...more

Sell or Be Sold by Grant Cardone

This is the third Grant Cardone book I've read this summer and I was not disappointed. Though he weaves many of the same things through his books, they have one unifying theme: get after it! Cardone is an over-the-top, take no prisoners, leave it all ...more

Another over-the-top dive into motivation, accountability, and 10x thinking. I don't agree with everything Grant Cardone espouses but I do find that he has a lot of good ideas and is incredibly effective at challenging my thinking. Much of this book ...more

anything or anyone
