Books I'm Reading

NO SWEAT!

Besides the awesome Orvis 5 wt. fly rod my son got me on my 50th birthday this year, I also received from him a book I am devouring in the mornings called; Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff by Dr. Richard Carlson.

I really love this quote from him out of chapter 5 on developing compassion.

Dr. Carlson says that “Compassion is something you can develop with practice. It involves two things: intention and action. Intention simply means you remember to open your heart to others; you expand what and who matters, from yourself to other people. Action is simply the what you do about it.”

I am really liking this book because even though it is simple it is far from simplistic.
