    “Planners, 5 things to remove from your life, and Charles Bradley” an interesting and fun Friday Post by my colleague Lauren Allen.

  • People that truly want to grow read books and also have a plan for how they read. The challenge is that there are so many out there and it is hard to know what to read and what is not a good investment of time.So, we are asking what is your favorite book that you read this year? What we will do is take the recommendations and publish a list for you to use.This is a link to BG Allen‘s current list and Lauren Allen‘s current list –

    Mike – I especially like this quote from your post – \”Strive to leave a positive legacy, not for ego’s sake, so you can leave this part of the journey you made a difference for others.\”

    Read our Friday post for some interesting tidbits, to relax, and for a bit of fun.

  • Well – I lost the picture of Dorn on my previous post – so here he is!For a little bit of fun – this is Dorn – our Coffee Troll. Dorn is outfitted for the season and is now drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows instead of his usual Earl Grey tea ( he is a British Coffee Troll after all.). Dorn was made by a friend of ours, Sam Clark. Sam likes to make Happy Dragons and Coffee Trolls and many other things in his studio.

  • Mike – thank you for setting this up and helping so many.

    We used to live in Niles, MI straight across the lake from Chicago. Beautiful country and great people, but I do not miss the winters!! That cold wind and lake effect snow could be tough at times!!

  • BG Allen posted an update 1 month, 1 week ago

    Reading well is important to our growth as individuals and as professionals. For some, it is easy, for others, taking time to read is hard. Regardless if it is easy or hard for you – it is important. This is an article that gives some ideas about how to make it easier.

  • Lauren Allen has an interesting “Friday List” that includes such things as Black Rifle Coffee Company french press, Judge Caprio, BMW concept i8, Hauser – Air on the the G String, Rain Dance, some different thinking on the setting of goals, and a few other things! She also includes some cool pictures.

  • An interesting article shared by Michael Quinn on LinkedIn. Some ideas for people dealing with the stress of being out of work. In my opinion, there are some good ideas here for handling stress in general.

    “THINK FOR YOURSELF: Restoring Common Sense In An Age Of Experts And Artificial Intelligence” (2020) has become one of my favorite books – something that we need to hear in my opinion. Written by Vikram Mansharamani.

    “1 Forgotten Skill That Will Make You a Better Leader Today” |“It’s truly an artform yet few have mastered it.” – a good post by one of my favorites – Marcel Schwantes 

  • “How to Become More Curious” – a good article by Scott H. Young. https://www.scotthyoung.com/blog/2020/11/30/curious/ | I enjoy his writing as he helps me to think about how I think. He is also incredibly helpful in helping me to better learn how to learn.

  • Good morning SPN! Hope it is a great day for everyone! Try to speak words of kindness and encouragement into the lives of the people you talk with today.
