This week, the front page of the Dallas Morning News had an article about the rising anxiety during this Global Pandemic. No surprise here; people are having trouble. It is a real thing. (Here’s the same article, from the Washington Post).
Thus, it is no wonder that the book Atomic Habits by James Clear is still at number one on the New York Times Best Sellers list of Business Books, for September, 2020. In other words, in a life that feels substantially out of control, we need to build very good habits to keep us productive, healthy, and mentally well. We need better, more effective habits. We need to rid ourselves of ineffective, “bad” habits. This book can help you develop a game plan to do just that.

I have presented my synopsis of this excellent book for folks at our First Friday Book Synopsis, and for multiple groups within companies and organizations.
Of the ten books on this month’s list, we have presented six of them at our First Friday Book Synopsis events, and I have selected a new book on this month’s list to present at our October event. Thus, after Oct. 2, we will have presented synopses of seven of the books on this month’s list of ten books.
I have presented synopses of: Atomic Habits, Dare to Lead, Extreme Ownership, and Outliers, and I will present my synopsis of Doesn’t Hurt to Ask at the October First Friday Book Synopsis. My former colleague Karl Krayer has presented his synopses of Thinking, Fast and Slow, and Grit.
