Today, for our Friday Filosophy #2015-25 I am taking a different tack. I am going to give you a summer reading list. Reading is a wonderful activity. You can be transported to different places in the world as well as in your mind. Learning is a tremendously important activity for me. It is one of the key activities in my quest to stay current. Enjoy.
The End of College: Creating the Future of Learning and the University of Everywhere. Author: Kevin Carey. This is an eye-opening read.
“The University of Everywhere is where students of the future will go to college. Parts of it will be familiar to anyone who’s gotten a great college education, because some aspects of human learning are eternal. But in many respects, it will be like nothing that has come before.” ~ Kevin Carey
BOLD: How to go big and create wealth and impact the world. Authors: Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler.
“The day before something is a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea.” ~ Peter H. Diamandis
Executive Toughness: The Mental-Training program to increase your Leadership Performance. Author: Dr. Jason Selk
“Mental toughness is the ability to focus on and execute solutions, especially in the face of adversity.” ~ Dr. Jason Selk
