Random Thoughts: February 2015

Needless to say, it has been a while since I have written. I am glad to be back and all of this time has allowed me to compile quite a few Random Thoughts. For the sake of time and space, I will keep it to the month of February.

Here is the latest in Titles and Tunes:

Titles 

The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

Why we do what we do in life and business

Why we do what we do in life and business.

If you are…

1) a nerd

2) a leader

or

3) a nerdy leader

then this book is for you. Duhigg investigates the science behind habits and how to change them. I have found it to be a very quick read, while remaining engaging and insightful.

Psalms

Psalms

Yes, the Psalms. As in Biblical Psalms. The last few years I have read the Bible cover to cover in some capacity but this year i elected to read the Psalms each month. So far I am two months in and have made a few observations.

1) I miss A LOT when I read Scripture (or anything for that matter)

2) Due to #1, it seems that going over something again helps me discover something I missed. What a concept right?

3) The Psalms are rich. But also raw. I love how David and the other Psalmists are so open about their doubts, fears, and concerns. Lately, Psalm 34 has been hitting home for me. Check it out.

Tunes

My top 5 tunes as of today:

1) Multiplied by NEEDTOBREATHE

2) Follow You by Ben Rector

3) How Can it Be by Lauren Daigle

4) Overwhelmed by Big Daddy Weave

5) Thunderstruck by AC/DC (Admittedly, this song is an outlier. But it is on my run playlist and I kick it up when this tune comes on.)
