News & Opinion: The Good Ol' Summertime

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:00 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

This is just a little reminder for me to tell you to take some time for yourself this summer. Everyone gets caught up in everyday living and we worry about everything all the time. This summer, promise to do something 'cool' for you. One thing, of course, is treating yourself to a good book. Here are some ideas for you to have a 'mental margarita'.

You: The Owner's Manual - An Inside Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger - One of the best books on how to take care of yourself.
The Pixar Touch: The Making of a Company and - The Celebrity Experience: Insider Secrets to Delivering Red Carpet Customer Service - These are great business books that are actually fun to read!
Keeping in tune with The Celebrity Experience (in time for the Tony Awards) you may want to check out Backstage Pass: Broadway Bares or even Always by My Side: A Father's Grace and a Sports Journey Unlike Any Other - just in time for Fathers' Day.
If you nothing above piqued your interest to aid in getting your mind off of day-to-day rituals, here's a spattering of titles I just finished reading:
Inside Steve's Brain
Truck: A Love Story The Sparrow

You can even give your eyes a rest and get something on a Compact Disc !!

Of course these are just some suggestions.... if you want to pick one of these or comment on what you like or want to read, please do so! It will help for ideas to get everyone to take a little break this sunny season!
