Daily Thoughts 08/18/2013
I finished reading The Bourne Supremacy this morning. I found it hard to read. There was a little bit too much paranoia and conspiratorial thinking for my taste. Robert Ludlum wrote a number of New York Times Bestselling books. I watched the Bourne Supremacy and the Bourne Ultimatum this weekend. In both cases, I found the movie far better than the book. They were much more focused. Matt Damon did an excellent acting job.
I also started reading Rumsfeld's Rules Leadership Lessons In Business, Politics, War, and Life by Donald Rumsfeld. It is interesting. He is quite to the point. I rather liked the picture of the desk which he stands at. So far there is a focus on punctuality, being focused and listening at meetings, and diplomacy in life and work.
The people in the book are not people who I agree with like Dick Cheney and Richard Nixon. It includes some suggestions on how not to get caught up in corruption, lobbying, or shady dealing.
