Labor Day Challenge – Day 3 – Read Everyday

September 8th, 2011

Welcome back…catch up on my progress by reading Day 2, and see what the Labor Day Challenge is all about by reading this!
On to day 3! So far, I have accomplished everything within my Labor Day Challenge, which includes my charge of reading a minimum 15 minutes everyday. First, let me define what reading means to me concerning the Labor Day Challenge. It does not include magazines, blogs or internet articles. It does not include the comics, the sports section or ESPN.com. These are all fine sources of reading, but it is not much of a challenge for me to read from these types of media. I am hoping to read from leadership books, self-help and literary classics.
There are so many reasons why this is a challenge for me. First and putting into practice many of the time-management skills I learned throughout college. (Most of those I learned the hard way!) I came across this quote from Confucius: “No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” I must find time to read, that is what my Labor Day Challenge is all about.
The second reason this is a challenge is typically I am not motivated to read. If I start a really good book, “Of Mice and rhetoric. Bottom line, sometimes I am too lazy to read. Well, not this next 6 weeks. I will read everyday. I hope to read about a wide variety of books.
Already, I have read one book, “Who Moved my Cheese” by Spencer Johnson.

Currently I am reading the following books:



“The Success Principals” by Jack Cranfield, “The 108 Skills of Natural Born Leaders” by Warren Blank, “Followership” by Barbara Kellerman, “The Prince” by Niccolo Machiavelli and relationship book. So, any suggestions would be appreciated.
I read when I have breaks, such as in the evening before Kristin comes home from work, and read a ton.
Do you read? If so, what are you reading? I need a couple great suggestions for a good book about finances and other medications may affect the way it’s works, causing side effects. Do not use unwanted medicines. Take Levitra to your local drugstore which will dispose of them for you.
