This is a place to document a random variety of readings that have influenced my way of thinking.  Books, articles, blogs, podcasts, and more.  Just because something is listed here doesn’t mean I agree with it 100%.  It was just part of the journey shaping my thoughts today.  Side note – I rarely read non-fiction cover to cover.  I read enough to get a good feel… and often get distracted by the next new reading.
