Happy Week 14 – Book club time!

March madness is done! Congrats to the North Carolina Tar heels in avenging a devastating loss last year. I fared pretty well this year – 4th out of a field of over 15 players.

So the Tar heels are the best. You would expect me to talk about some sort of basketball coaching strategy or something motivational in a sportsy-kinda way, but no. I’m going to throw a curve ball and say nay to all that. It’s time for the Happy Wisdom Book club!

We all know that happiness and wisdom take practice and work and knowledge.  Books are a great way to get those things, so without further ado, let’s check out the first book – “Originals” by Adam Grant.   I haven’t finished this yet, but I have started it, and thought it might be fun to post the occasional update here as I caught the juicy nuggets of wisdom Mr. Grant has packed into this book.

If you’ve read this, or want to start reading it, let me know. It’d be fun to have other comments on this entertaining read.

I’m not sure what other books I’ll be covering, but I’m going to shoot for about one a month.

Here’s an excellent introduction to whet your appetite:

Originals is one of the most important and captivating books I have ever read, full of surprising and powerful ideas. It will not only change the way you see the world; it might just change the way you live your life. And it could very well inspire you to change your world.” —Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In
