Take a Study Break!
We’ve been studying up on ways to improve our writing, but now I think we’ve earned a break! What are you reading right now for fun?
Me? I’m just getting started on Outlander book 6: A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon. I know, we talk about her a lot here, but if you really haven’t read this amazing series, you should. The beauty of these books is that there’s like a million of them, and each story is compelling and beautiful and leaves you wanting more. I really have no idea what I’m going to do when I finish this series, but it’s probably going to involve tears and the fetal position.
I haven’t been able to read for fun as much as I usually like to. I’m working on advancing my position in my day job, and that’s involving a lot of required reading that isn’t necessarily fun. We’re just getting started on Smarter, Faster, Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg in my Professional Development group, and I’ll say it’s a much better read than 7 Habits. The Stories are good, and the writing feels more genuine. I mostly felt like Stephen Covey was too stuffy in his writing, so I’m looking forward to seeing what Duhigg says in his book.
I’m also about to start reading The Four Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals (4DX) by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and a few others. This one is going to be a little heavier, and will likely require me to take notes. I’m reading this one on the side with my boss and office manager, so I’m interested to see what my boss is looking for with this one. I should have started it already, but it feels a little daunting to me. I’m going to make myself start it by next week, though!
I’d love to hear about what you’re reading! Comment below, or on our Facebook and let’s talk about it! Don’t forget to follow us! We have some awesome things in the works!
