Why me? Why not me? GAP – Day 336

Why me? Why not me? GAP – Day 336

Today’s GAP post is for gratitude. Today I was reminded of a great passage from the Andy Andrews book The Traveler’s Gift that underscores a decision to be responsible. I first read this book about 6 years ago and have since recommended it often to various people. I love the journey that the main character experiences to learn … Continue reading

Anchor or engine (revisited): GAP – Day 283

Today’s GAP post is for progress. While driving between my meetings today, I decided to listen to Darren Hardy’s The Compound Effect for like the 6th time this year.

Last chapter: GAP – Day 243

Today’s GAP post is for gratitude. You know that you read a great book when you are sad to arrive at the last chapter. That has been the case for the last 2 out of 3 books I have read. You start to identify with the characters or the storyline and you get this feeling … Continue reading

Outliers: GAP – Day 145

Outliers: GAP – Day 145

Today’s GAP post is for gratitude. I recently finished Malcom Gladwell’s book Outliers. The concepts laid out in this book are incredibly thought-provoking. I have long been a believer in pigheaded determination and a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ mentality in order to reach success. But, as Gladwell explains, there are other factors at … Continue reading
