Learning on my Summer Vacation


I just got back from a tremendous vacation in Huntington Beach, CA (AKA, Surf City USA). While on vacation we enjoyed being in our home state, walking nearly 6 miles a day along the coast, visiting family and, of course, the 80 degree days with lots of sun and surf.

While on vacation I also took the time to read four books that served to stimulate a lot of creativity, relaxation and pure fun. Here they are and I give each one a “five star” recommendation.

“The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich” (Timothy Ferriss)

I re-read this book and continue to learn tips on personal productivity and how to move from idea to action. This time I spent a lot of time in his section about product creation and idea testing and I will try out some of the ideas soon.

“The Caddie Who Knew Ben Hogan” (John Coyne)

This book was a fun. The author did a tremendous job weaving historical information about the golfing legend with golf tips and a surprising story.

The Shack This is a compelling, gripping story of one man’s journey into deep understanding of his faith and life. This is one of those books that once you start, you won’t be able to put down. This story will challenge you and answer many faith questions.

“The Spirit of the Border” (Zane Grey)

Zane Gray was a gifted writer of fiction. In this book he chronicles the lives of Moravian missionaries who tried to settle and serve in the Ohio Valley circa 1790. It’s a compelling story about the nation’s western border and personal sacrifice.

I don’t know about you, but reading great books like these inspire me.
