I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- I love the advice James Altucher offers in his piece “How to Be Mentally Strong.” It is a great infographic on harnessing mental strength. The advice on relationships and the idea muscle resonated with me.
- Guess what’s back? Serial. I am such a fan of Sarah Koenig’s storytelling and this season’s podcast focuses on U.S. soldier, Bowe Bergdahl. He was a prisoner of the Taliban for nearly five years and eventually returned to the United States. Once at home he was hailed as a hero, but within days the public reaction to his rescue became a source of discontent. Find out the beginnings of this story with Episode 1.
- Do you dislike small talk? The New York Times, “A Neurotic’s Guide to Small Talk” is an amusing and humorous read.
- This heartfelt letter by my friend, Christine, is a beautiful tribute to friendship. I encourage you to read it and tell those special people in your life how much you love them.
