Some of My Favorite People and Things

I have an always-a-student mindset, so I’m big into reading, attending seminars, speaking events and most any medium that leads to learning.

I’m persistently looking for ways to deepen and further cultivate the 4 dimensions of my life (emotional-social, physical, mental, spiritual-values) otherwise known as sharpening the saw by Stephen R. Covey in his book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”

And many of the authors, thought-leaders and wisdom givers I come across are because someone recommended them to me. 

To pay that gift forward, I’d like to share with you some of the things I Love.  The list gets longer and longer everyday, so this is merely a sampling.
