EP 185: Books That Changed How I Live My Life (from the archives)


How is your summer going? Are you enjoying the Summer of Intentionality? I hope so.

I have heard from some folks that they love having a framework to make the season special even when they have a full time non-academic job. Knowing how you want to spend your time on the longer days gives them a purpose and that feels good.

If you haven’t started yours yet, it isn’t too late! Modify the SOI and make it yours. Maybe make a short book list, a couple of can’t miss food items and a friend Friday list and get those things booked into your schedule.

In this week’s podcast I am re-sharing my list of books that changed how I live my life. I hope you will give it a listen and share with me what you want to read this summer.
