Book I read this week: Insane Productivity by Darren Hardy. I attended the conference on which this program is based, and I have listened to the audio course several times. So much of my ability to get so much done is based on the principles Darren teaches in this course. I can’t recommend it highly enough for everyone!

 Book I’m reading next week: The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss. This book literally changed my life and changed how I looked at work. It’s time to read it again for inspiration!
