Read this book

51PyX60-j3L._SX335_BO1,204,203,200_I just finished Ross McCammon’s ‘Works Well With Others’, which is an easy, fun read with a lot of practical advice that beats the hell out of the typical ‘self-help’ book. It could easily have been titled ‘Get over that nagging impostor syndrome, and learn to look people in the eye and not take yourself so seriously,’ but his title is shorter, so it’s easier to find on Amazon.

McCammon is a senior editor at Esquire magazine who describes himself as wearing a perpetual scowl and a penchant for under dressing for that key interview. (Note: shirt + Tie – blazer or jacket = Walmart department manager) Nevertheless, he churned out this lighthearted look at life and sports a natural smile on the back cover leaf that makes you think he’s full of it.

By the way…

Today’s the future – well, ‘The Future 2’

A Quotation Challenge

In the interim between the Fall and Spring semesters, I’ve been letting the WordPress 365 Days of Writing Prompts to guide my posts. Today’s prompt asks us to consider a quote that you come back to again and again – and consider why it moves you.

Although I don’t think that I’ve kept this quote specifically on my mind, it is one that I consider close to my heart. Perhaps I’ll come back and comment later about what this means to me, so long as some of you share first.

The quote:

“A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.”

Take a moment to think about who you think might have said this before clicking here to find out. While you’re at it, let me know what it means to you and who you thought it was if you didn’t get it right.
