What Are You Reading?

“You will be the same person in five years that you are today except for the books that you read and the people you associate with.”

That sentence has been attributed to many people so I will simply state I take no credit for it, but do believe it to be one of life’s truths.

For the last few months, I have been trying to regain the discipline of reading for at least one hour a day.  My current position has me stretching outside of my comfort zone and I need to be prepared for new challenges each day. The routine has been re-established.

Currently, I am reading Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss, with Tahl Raz.  The book is about negotiations and how not to lose.

“In this book, I draw on my more than two-decade career in the Federal Bureau of Investigation to distill the principles and practices I deployed in the field into an exciting new approach designed to help you disarm, redirect, and dismantle your counterpart in virtually any negotiation. And to do so in a relationship-affirming way.” -Chris Voss

I just started this book, but it is easy to read and very interesting. I am looking forward to gleaning some wisdom and only wish I had found this when our daughters were teenagers.
