“I don’t have time to read because: (paste in generic excuse) try this one.
“A werewolf tossed me against a giant packing crate while I was trying to rescue a frightened young girl who’d been kidnapped by an evil witch and a drug lord.”
? Patricia Briggs,
Which is my way of introducing yet another new feature for my blog which for now I am calling, “Your Weekend Read” and published every Saturday.
In this feature I will give you the top five best-selling books in various categories related to business and self-development. I’ve taken a gander at Amazon which will give me enough material so that I don’t have to repeat a list very often. I will also feature something from one of the books on the list. Either I will do a review or include a YouTube video as I’ve done here, or a news clip or other brilliantly creative ideas.
This weeks list is

Making Excuses ranks right up there as one of the most destructive habits we have because an excuse makes us smaller and puts us at effect and not at cause over our life. Hear Wayne Dyer talk about excuses in this short video clip.
So what’s your excuse for not crushing it?
If there is interest I would be willing to host a reading club on Spreecast. Jon Olson use to do this for a while late Saturday afternoon. He use to do a whole book at a time. But suppose we pick a book and do a chapter a week with discussion and analysis each Saturday. Let me know.
Reading Quote of the Week.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”

That’s a wrap.
Have a good weekend.
Go on an adventure: Read a Book.
