Don’t Change Too Much

If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…

A Modern Approach to: How To Win Friends and Influence People

So this is going to be a little bit off-topic then my more recent posts. I’ve recently been listening to the audio-book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, a classic if you may, and I’m not really trying to provide any kind of summary, as you’ll find about 10 million of…

Notes from Underground

There are few books in my life, maybe even none at all, that I can truly say they changed my life after reading them. I know that’s such a cliche thing to say, as, it’s cliche to say things like “this book changed my life”, but after reading Notes from Underground, by Dostoevsky, and it’s…
