new old understanding book: Drive

by Daniel H.Pink. Shows how we are more motivated with a better purpose and for the betterment of the world, or a bigger cause. Something I always understood and always wondered why most managers I worked with didn't see this, so was nice to see how he proves this with studies etc. Examples also help the non believers I guess. Very good book, worth reading for the future managers I hope they will all see this.
Keep smiling !!!

Read to laugh: Duck Soup for the Soul

by Swami Beyondananda, the altered ego of Steve Bhaerman. Is a great pick me up, and to help you get a smile more often, all day and every day. To learn to pump ironnies etc. Very good.
Helps you to keep smiling !!!

You can now choose to be 100! How, you may ask?

Start by thinking you can live to 100. Then read "Dare to be 100" by Walter Bortz 1996. and / or, Next read "Younger Next Year" by Chris Crowley + Henry S. Lodge MD They give a step by step exercise program and just sensible eating is also required, plus you must have purpose to your life. I have retired and for many years expected to live to be 100. But now I know how to get there, as these two books easily explain the plan.
Keep smiling !!!
May the blessings be!
