One of the nicknames a dear friend of mine calls me is, “Number 5.” I may be dating myself, but wayyyy back in the 1980’s there was this movie called Short Circuit, that starred Ally Sheedy. She played alongside a robot who could read books in a matter of minutes. He would plow through book after book. My voracious appetite for continuous quality improvement means that I love reading books that will fill in the gaps for what I need to move to my next level.
This keeps my mind strong. And it helps me to know what the process of achievement really looks like behind the scenes, so I can easily glide through even the rough days.
When your mind is strong, it is easy to stay focused and moving forward no matter what comes your way (even through a pandemic). I share the books I am using to keep my mind sharp right now. What books are you reading and why? I look forward to hearing from you! – Ericka
I’m under contract for my first book (!!) so a lot of my current reading is related. “TheStigma Effect” by Patrick Corrigan — of the 3 strategies for reducing stigma, it’s the least used that works best. “The Orchid and the Dandelion “ by Tom Boyce. A pediatric public health researcher finds that the kids who get sick most easily are also the ones who — under the right conditions— thrive most remarkably. “Pre-suasion” by Robert Cialdini. It ain’t what you say, it’s the environment into which you speak it.
Carlene! Congratulations!!! That is WONDERFUL to hear! I know you know your titles, so I will check these out. Thank you for sharing! Please let us know when your book is ready for reading!
