Passionate Living Volume Three: Reading

Why are we talking about ways to live passionately on a so called “marketing” blog?

I’ll face the facts first…it’s more than just a “marketing” blog.  It’s a lifestyle blog and no matter how many times I get told to carve out more of a “niche” I’m drawn to another topic beyond marketing because of my fascination with EVERYTHING in the world!


If you want to market yourself to the world and advance yourself personally or professionally living passionately is a big part of that.  If you wake up miserable, annoyed, and negative towards the world that marketing of yourself to everyone around you will be seen and heard.

And advancement to whatever your goals are in life will be much harder.

If you missed volumes one or two on cooking and volunteering check out the archives on the sidebar!

Over the coming Thursdays on here we are going to look at ways in which you can try out different things to live passionately.

In hopes to inspire you to tap into more of your passions on a daily basis and market your true best self to this world.

Not just when you are on vacation or finally retire from the man…but each and every day.

Volume Three: Reading!

Now some might point to the fact that an author who has published two books and an online program on Efficiency would of course mention reading.  It’s what this whole site is about!

Reading is the cheapest way to grow professionally and it can get stir you up and get you so emotional about something on a personal level it’s hard to believe many people choose not to read after leaving high school.

I’m not going to list out all of the benefits of reading on here but only say this.

A book can take you on an incredible ride.  A ride that is hard to describe unless you go on yourself!

Ready to go on a ride?!  There’s something for everyone on this list I promise.

1)      Born to Run

2)      I am Malala

3)      Three Cups of Tea and its nemesis Three Cups of Deceit. I’ll let you form your own opinion.

4)      Into the Wild and The Wild Truth

5)      Now It’s Your Turn

6)      The Book of Basketball

7)      The Kite Runner

8)      Art of Non Conformity

9)      To Kill a Mockingbird

10)   The Go Giver

11)   My Losing Season

12)   One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest

13)   The Renegade Sportsman

14)   FORKS

15)   Into Thin Air

16)   Four Hour Body

Hope this list gives you at least one read that provides as much joy to you as it’s done to me. You’ll start to notice the more you read the more you want to live passionately and with zest for everything you do.  The library and a bookstore are beautiful places to visit.

Spend time at one today.

Thanks for being part of the crew; I’m glad you are hanging out here!
