What I Am Thinking and Learning This Week
I am still restructuring my life after 9 days of digital detox. Through this restructuring I am working to get caught up on everything that I missed. Here is a rundown of some of my favorite articles and links so far.

What books am I reading?
Another good week of reading. With less time online I am finding more time and focus to reading and feeling empowered. Here is what I read this week.
You can access all three books here as I have them saved to my Amazon page
1. On Bullshit – This is a very short read of around 70 pages in a tiny book. The title grabbed my attention, but what I took away from this book was more than just a definition on bullshit. The author wrote an eloquent dissertation and argument why no other word could possibly be as good as the word bullshit. I studied this book to learn how to argue and find ways to looking at the whole issue and being able to create active dialogue. Read this book for nothing more than how to articulate your ideas and thoughts.
2. Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey – I read this book to work on a personal goal of eliminating debt. Many people swear by his methods. There are plenty more who argue with what he says. I listen to his podcasts and have read his work online so I will be using this book as a guide. Common sense stuff and at the end of the day it is all about mindset and sticking to a plan. That is however the hard part. Book read very fast and the stories woven throughout kept the material from being boring. Now if I get out of debt this will be a miracle book!
3. The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday – A great read and a book that is getting a lot of buzz lately. Ryan takes the work from the great stoics and creates a read that helps the reader understand that obstacles are to be expected and are part of the journey. I enjoyed this book and wrote down many great ideas. However, it did not suck me in and some parts I read faster than others. A worthy read, but not one that I would probably read again.
Something new for the newsletter is not only a video of the books I read
But I have also included the books I did not read this week and returned to the library.
Let me know what you think about this. Until next week.
