Leo Tolstoi on a Soviet stamp from 1978.

Daily Thoughts 3/24/2009

Today has been another quiet day to take care of the small details around the building. File some law looseleafs, check the shelves for out of order books, order some law books on tenants rights, put the current events display in order, discard a few old desktop publishing manuals and other miscellaneous tasks. Sometimes, the small things have big results. I asked to have the printer setup changed for the law computer and have training software put in place for microsoft office on two of the computers in the technical service area.

I finished reading The Speed of Trust by Stephen M.R. Covey. The book was extremely idealistic to the point of being fantastic. The numbers which were given did not seem real. The goals seemed to be made up to appeal to peoples wish fulfillment. It was an enjoyable fantasy for business men and women. The kind of thing that is perfect for perking up and motivating your salesforce. You would give this to the same person who loved Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World. Not my kind of book, but perfect for those who need motivation to sell or manage in the competitive world of business. It is not something which I will review in full.

I am going to start reading Eat That Frog tomorrow.
