GEN The 10 - Tablet hand tappingWho is getting excited for the NFL regular season? Are you more of a college football fan? Or do you like to watch other sports? College football is huge here in the South, but I have become more of a professional football fan over the years. Maybe it is the injuries and interviews I do about injuries in NFL players. I’m curious if you are a football fan. Let me know what you watch and why! Share your thoughts on Twitter or Facebook!

Book I read this week: Do the Work: Overcome Resistance and Get Out of Your Own Way by Steven Pressfield. This book is amazing, just like The War of Art. Do the Work is more tactical, helping you get through an individual project. You can read it in a single sitting, just like I did. This is another book that I expect I will read frequently.

Book I’m reading next week: Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life’s Work by Steven Pressfield. If you haven’t guessed, I’ve become a big fan of Pressfield’s work. Next up for me is Turning Pro. Read it along with me!
