Today is the end of National Healthcare Quality Week. I admit that I feel so much better and healthier switching away from processed foods and eating organic vegetables, grass-fed beef and eggs from cage-free chickens. Whether you adopt that type of diet, today might be a good day to think about what you put into your body!
Now check out some terrific articles and books!
Book I read this week: Win Your Case: How to Present, Persuade, and Prevail–Every Place, Every Time by Gerry Spence. I really liked the other book of his that I read – How to Argue & Win Every Time: At Home, At Work, In Court, Everywhere, Everyday. I tried to listen to Win Your Case on audiobook – twice. But for some reason, I just couldn’t get through it. If you pick one to read, pick How to Argue & Win Every Time.
Book I’m reading next week: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I read this book about 10 years ago and loved it. It’s time to pull it back out and revisit its principles.
