I’m pretty excited about life at the moment. I’ve had a fantastically productive week working with those things I enjoy most. Not that the MBA wasn’t at times enjoyable, but it sure is nice to return to a lifestyle where I can practice climbing and practice guitar. I want to take advantage of my minutes and really try and reach the next level of Mike D intensity. Last night was a beautiful start to this push for productivity. I got in some dedicated guitar scales work and a few hours at the climbing gym. At the gym I even used the fingerboard for a bit and pretty much slaughtered my digits.
In addition to the rock, rock climbing, and kung fu (tonight!!), I really want to get in a fair amount of reading. I have a book list that I’ve been working on and would love some reader recommendations. I’d like to have a pleasant mix of fiction and non-fiction.
My current list starts with She’s come undone by Wally Lamb. I still want to get through the Astronomy book that I mentioned to you guys a while back and there are two financial books that I’d like to read (Black Swan by Taleb and A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Malkiel). Do any of you guys have any recommendations?
