For Christmas I received several books that had been on my wish list. One was The Art Of Non Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. The other is Amazing Things Will Happen by C.C. Chapman. C.C. is a friend from the early days of Podcasting (back when there were only 300 podcasts) and so I wanted to pick up his book to support him. Chris’ book is a book I stumbled across when I saw mention of his SECOND book The $100 Startup.
Both books deal with creating and living the life you want to live, outside of what others THINK you should be doing. You’d think both would sell very well this time of year, what with it being the first of the year, but I had them on my wish list for awhile and received them both at Christmas.
They are pretty perfect for this time of year though because both suggest a similar exercises for this time of year. In CC’s book it’s the 3 Words Exercise. In Chris’ book it’s doing an Annual Review. I love both ideas and so I’m going to give them a shot, albeit a week late. This year I have grown increasingly tired of how the entertainment industry works. Frustrated, both of the above books were a much needed kick in the pants to try and redefine what I’m doing, what I’m trying to accomplish and what I’d like my perfect life to be.
I promise to share both my review and goals for 2013 here with you. I won’t be sharing absolutely EVERYTHING as I believe some stuff should be personal, but I will share a lot of stuff. Stuff I hope you will be my personal cheerleaders for as I try to accomplish them. Plus, I just think you all will look amazingly attractive wearing the short skirts and holding pom poms.
