Weekly Roundup Number 1: November 6th

START HERE:

What else was Interesting for your casual reading?

+ The Secret Algorithm Behind Learning:    I am always looking for ways to learn information faster.  This is an excellent Quick Read on a few items I was doing and some that I was not.
+ Their Up is My Down: This great post resonated throughout the FIRE community.  It touched the nerve of being able to find your tribe of like-minded individuals online even if your real world community surrounding you values different things.  It’s probably something that all
bloggers could relate to at some point or another.

+ Is the Gig Economy Cannibalizing or Creating Jobs?  Here’s Some Early Evidence:  Love it or hate it the Gig Economy is here.  For someone looking to earn additional cash to get out of debt, it has been a great addition.  For the rest of us who need full-time jobs with benefits, the trend is not encouraging.
+ Investing a Lump Sum at All-Time Highs:  As the market hangs out within a few percent of all-time highs, what do you do with all that cash you have sitting around?  Cash management particularly important for millennials who have years until retirement and or debts to manage.

Books I am Reading Right Now:

Man’s Search For Meaning – “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing:  the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Until about 18 months ago I had fallen into a terrible trend of not reading any books.   My current life structure didn’t have any time set aside for any reading that was not an online article or a medical journal.

Too busy to sit down and read a book.

Enter Audiobooks and Podcasts.  Now, on the way to work,  when I am exercising, or even doing chores I can be “reading” books.
So head on over and get that book you have been waiting to read at:
Remember,

“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”

-Charlie “Tremendous” Jones

    I definitely need to get back in the habit of reading books. Since I started to write the blog I have spent a lot less time reading books which I miss. Thanks for the great reminder to start reading again!!!

      I will have to say the amount that I have sat down to read is vastly less than the ones I have consumed with audiobooks. Much more convenient for being on the go.
