Day-2019-02-06

  • With just 3 days left in my trial period for The Brain I am still no closer to determining how it might fit in my workflow. It overlaps considerably with this wiki, but it is easier to create quick connections. So often I find myself putting the same location in both places, which is nuts.
  • I finished listening to the Educated by Tara Westover. What an amazing story of resilience, and incredible loyalty to a family that probably didn’t deserve as much. It is hard to believe that this is a modern-day story, given some of the events that occur. I appreciated the underlying narrative that eventually, we all grow up and have to make our own determinations about what life is and how it should be lived.
  • I started and finished a business book also, that had been lent to me by a client of mine. The Ultimate Blueprint for an Insanely Successful Business by Keith J. Cunningham has a cheesy title, and it’s opening chapter put me off also. I pressed on, and within there were some solid instructions about how to effectively manage a business for efficiency and productivity. Many of the lessons echoed the theory of lean thinking, without explicitly mentioning it. The book paid off the less than 2 hours it took to read it, although the hardline cross-selling grew towards the end. Still, it clearly explains financial management concepts, so I give it a thumbs-up.
