Daily Thoughts 06/30/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I spent some time going over issues surrounding weeding and mending books and other items.

I finished reading Crucial Conversations Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler.  This is a combination of a self help book and a book on communication.  It motivates you to communicate better.  The focus is on dealing with anger, paying attention, and avoiding silence in communication.  The book focuses on some straightforward on how to do this.  I plan on rereading this book to better understand what is being suggested.
