I hate to admit it, but I don't do much reading outside of business books and documents. However, I did recently re-read "The Happiness Advantage," by Shawn Achor. I appreciate his perspective on the principles of happiness that transcend our professional and personal lives alike.Q
I worked as a night janitor cleaning an office building with a good friend of mine during high school. We used to sit at the CEO's desk and act like we were running the company. That was one of those jobs where a buddy of mine started and I joined. It was pretty easy. We'd finish sports practice, then work for a few hours and head home.Q

It's a subject I've always found to be fascinating. It really applies to any business. I've worked for large and small organizations. Your biggest asset is your talent, so it's really about understanding how people interact. I've always had a skill for quickly assessing personalities and it was interesting to apply that information into how to build a successful team.Q

I've always been fascinated with the architectural growth of cities in the U.S. and think it would have been interesting to see all the advancements taking place in the early 1900's. Having spent time in major cities, what's amazing to me is that they were able to do so much with limited technology. We now have the means to do these things, but back then they didn't really have the infrastructure. Also, the people who lived back then who took nothing and created these large companies, having an entrepreneurial spirit myself, are fascinating.Q
Definitely a night owl.
