News & Opinion: Can't Get Away and Zippy Reading

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:06 PM – Filed under: Personal Development & Human Behavior

I was out of town for the past few days. I left the computer at home (a huge feat; ask my wife) and didn't bring any books with me. I thought I would decompress a bit and enjoy the time away.

Looking through a pile of magazines at my brother's house, I came across an article that made good material for a blog post. What do I do? Walk over to his office computer and email the details home.

I can't away even when I am away.

Here is the actual blog post:

The March 2007 issue of Best Life had one of those "empty your bag" profiles of Scott Griffith, CEO of Zipcar. He keeps a number of bound items with him including:

The Art of War by Sun Tzu - "Business leaders tend to forget tht running a company requires tremendous planning. This book by Sun Tzu is full of great insights, and I carry it around as a reminder to plan ahead."

Office Yoga by Darrin Zeer- "This book has alot of good stretches for your neck and shoulders. My favorite is the 'kick back and log on' pose; it relieves shoulder tension from sitting in front of a computer too long."

You will also find Zagat guides, Streetwise Maps, and AutoWeek in his bag.
