The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman - Worth Reading

Quick verdict - it's a good book, and I think it's worth reading.

Josh Kaufman sent me a message on Twitter a bit back, asking if I'd like a review copy of his book. Indeed, I would, I replied, and he sent me a digital copy.

Before I review the book, let me tell you how I read - when I get a nonfiction book that I'm not sure if I'm going to read, I "fastread" it. That's me starting to skim and move quickly, then I slow down and read in depth when something catches my eye, and speed up after I finish that section.

I fastread a lot of books. Especially reading a in-depth reference book on a topic you already know, I think you can get 90% of the lessons of a book in 30% of the time by fastreading. I typically fastread historical backgrounds about eras I'm very familiar with, thoughts on an aspect of business I know, introductions to technologies I'm already familiar with, etc.

My first thought when I was reading The Personal MBA was that this would be a good book to fastread.

Overcoming Negativity: Day 7

On Huan M. Nguyen

The seventh day of Overcoming Negativity.

A full week! Definite progress has been made in this week, and I hope the remaining two-thirds of time left will show even more improvement!

There isn't much to write about, for this day. Most notable is that it's now been a week, but other than that... not much.

I'm starting to get sporadic about my journaling and meditation, even though they're supposed to be daily habits. That wagon is one that deserves jumping back on immediately.

I thought of something to talk about: how interesting it is the way we get used to things.
