Occasionally humorous. Frequently inspiring. And in all ways valuable.
Christmas came early this year and in the form of an … Amazon Review.
I suppose I can finally come clean with the fact that I like line charts and bar graphs and slow growth over time. I envision a chart of “What I Wished for Christmas” over the years and how it might look. Maybe it’s more of a SWAT diagram with four quadrants and weighted axis …
- Little red train
- Atari 2600
- Hair gel
- Bail bonds*
- Anything but a necktie
- A trip to Cape Town, South Africa
- Book reviews
I got a review recently that I just love, love, love. I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. It’s insightful, shows that not only did he read the book, but truly got it and was able to formulate his thoughts in just a few brilliant and concise lines.
It’s even a 4-star review and not a 5-star review. It tells me that it could be just a little better, that I can make that next book just a little more, a little deeper, a little more something. I don’t know what that is yet, but I can tell you that I’ll find out because this inspires me to do more, write more, make it better and improve.
Maybe that’s my true Christmas wish: to keep learning, to improve, to enjoy the journey, to cherish the learning along the way and not only not care if I ever get there, but to slow down to make sure the trip last a lifetime.

And in all ways valuable.
A great book for those contemplating embarking on a journey of change, improvement, and intentional growth. Charbonneau’s every man approach and aw-shucks humor delivers life-altering concepts and baby spoon servings. It isn’t until committing to reading a chapter or two a day that by the book’s end, you realized that you’ve already begun employing the principles.
