A Book I’m Looking Forward to Reading – Leadership: In Turbulent Times
This book has been recommended to me a number of times. It’s coming up soon on my reading list!
“After five decades of magisterial output, Doris Kearns Goodwin leads the league of presidential historians” (USA TODAY). In her “inspiring” (The Christian Science Monitor) Leadership, Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights)—to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope.
Leadership tells the story of how they all collided with dramatic reversals that disrupted their lives and threatened to shatter forever their ambitions. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to confront the contours and dilemmas of their times. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the opportunities and lives of others. Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader?
An Electrolyte Drink – Ultima Replenisher
I recently found myself feeling a bit tired through the day. Knowing the details of my diet and workout plan, my fitness trainer recommended I try this electrolyte powder. The first day I drank it, I could tell a difference!
There are a lot of fitness drinks out there. Most have a lot of sugar or not-so-great sugar substitutes. This particular powder seems to be very clean and compatible with a number of eating plans.
A Helpful Playlist – Spotify Sleep Playlist
This playlist is full of tracks that can help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep. I am trying to break my habit of listening to podcasts when I go to bed.
