Very uplifting. A great read for a new college student.
This book has made me think of so many possible future accomplishments. It inspires hope and brings to mind many fresh takes on what the future can hold.
Youth Future Important
That it leads to so many other great stories. Orson Scott Card is an amazing weaver of tales.
I saw the movie first, that inspired me to read the book. I am happy I did it this way. The movie was great, and of course the book was better. If I saw the movie after reading I know I would be let down.
Sit at the table. This statement allows me to know I am just as welcome to any meeting as anyone else.
I had second thoughts about reading this book. I read it at a time in my life when I should have. While motherhood is a role in life, I can still push forward with my career. My career is not who I am or am not, but how I am contributing to the world and to myself in what I learn.
Yes, I attempted to read the book but found myself stopping and taking action dairying about events the book reminded me of. Not a bad thing, but I did not finish the book before it had to be returned to the library. As an audiobook I placed so many book marks. I listened once through and now am excited to read it again stopping to journal at the marks I have already made.
Another amazing notion from Mr. Godin.
At times I felt beaten down at work based on his comments.
A mystery told in snippets of a life torn down.
Having a virtual assistant and then finding out this assistant was not as helpful as you thought.
This book surprised me. Most movies and especially sit coms are predictable; I enjoy being surprised.
This book got me hooked on TED talks, which I had never heard of and not see and hear everywhere.
We all eat at restaurants, while this takes on a dairy like story of the narrator and not the gross things we expect to hear when you send a meal back to the kitchen, it shows that our servers have to put up with a lot of things to do their job. When they do it well, tip them - with money.
A couple of times it is referenced a tip above 20% is required for exceptional service, this seems to be aside from the social norm.
Here's My Money
Reviewing these topics that I learned in college was a nice refresher. For anyone who has not been trained in retail, this is a great listen as to why money is flying from our pockets.
Yes, I enjoy Jen Lancaster and hearing her read her own words brings new meaning to them. I can tell in her voice the words and phrases she is most proud of; the ones I can picture her yelling down to her husband Fletch in a sense of joy and passion in her craft.
Of course the main character.
Yes, it make me think of people in my life I should respect more.
Yes, it was a recommendation from a friend to me and I appreciate her for it.
Learning that all the factions have truth in today's world and everyday life.
Learning new things about someone you know well, shows that you can never know someone absolutely.
More details and explanations of the philosophical terms. This is a great book for those who are studying philosophy because it shows how you can apply it to your life.
More personal stories instead of ideas of what to and not to do.
