Should We All have Professional Life Coaches?

mentor, life coach,

While reading the book Lives of Promise by Karen Arnold I had a few thoughts. It seems like a path to success and satisfaction in one’s career relies on either luck, self-exploration, career exploration and guidance. It seems that rarely do people going through school know what they actually want to do without this process. … Continue reading Should We All have Professional Life Coaches?

Review of Lives of Promise: What Becomes of High School Valedictorians: A Fourteen-Year Study of Achievement and Life Choices by Karen Arnold

What becomes of high school valedictorians, education,

Why I Chose This Book The book Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Eric Barker was published sometime early 2017 and there seemed to be some buzz surrounding its release. What initially caught my eye, before I knew it was related to Barker’s book, was an article or two stating that valedictorians don’t become really … Continue reading Review of Lives of Promise: What Becomes of High School Valedictorians: A Fourteen-Year Study of Achievement and Life Choices by Karen Arnold

Music Video: Bittersweet by Kevin MacLeod

Kevin Macleod, Music Video

I think I was perusing Kevin MacLeod songs one day when I came across a slow ballad. I had made a few videos using royalty free music by that point and I had typically chosen dramatic or cinematic songs. This one was different. This one was indeed slow, but it was also somber. I might … Continue reading Music Video: Bittersweet by Kevin MacLeod

Why I Chose to Read this Book Pamita Rao (I think it was her or some affiliate account) and I connected on Twitter one day and she sent me a message offering a free preview copy of her book.

Review of Watchmen by Alan Moore

graphic novel, alan moore, Dave Gibbons

Why I Chose this Book Why did I choose this book? I think I’ve been slowly gravitating towards graphic novels. I remember wondering a few years ago why the medium wasn’t more popular. They’re books with pictures! They have fewer words than a traditional text-based novel and they have interesting images. They’re like a transition … Continue reading Review of Watchmen by Alan Moore

Why I Chose This Book I was talking with a colleague of mine about working out when he recommended I read two books, The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone, unrelated to fitness by the way, and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger by Mike Matthews. I exercised occasionally, but I sometimes yearned for a workout plan that I … Continue reading Review of Bigger, Leaner, Stronger by Michael Matthews

Why I Chose this Book A former colleague of mine recommended this book one day. The same weekend, I believe, I put this book and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger on hold at my library. I made it to the second to last chapter when I had to return the book. Fortunately, I had mentioned to a … Continue reading Review of The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure by Grant Cordone
