Recommended Reading

So often I write about the comings and goings of everyone else in the house but I thought today I'd share a recommended book. There's several that I've really enjoyed but this one is definitely up at the top of my list. Yesterday I received from my best friend Jenny a book in the mail for my birthday. The book? "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch.

I know a lot of people have read it already and it's been on my list to read for quite some time. I didn't realize how good it would be until I started reading it. It's full of wonderful advice and ways to really live life to the fullest. I've gotten some great quotes from there that I've put up as inspiration on my black board at work. They include:

1. You can always change you plan, but only if you have one.
2. Complaining does not work as a strategy.
3. Not everything needs to be fixed.
4. I don't believe in the no-win scenario.

There's so many more. I can't wait to go back and start from the beginning again of course after I read the last 30 pages! So if you're looking for a good book - I recommend this one.

Sounds like a great book... I need to get one for my mom and highlight the complaining section! :)
