A curated sampling of writing I consumed this week.
I’m A Family Psychologist And These Are The 20 Most Common Parenting Mistakes I See by Mike Leary. A necessary “listicle.” #7 reinforced some of my core beliefs… which is a very good thing.
Steve Case: Let’s invest in Middle America by Steve Case – I couldn’t agree more. And hey… there’s a lot of visionary projects happening right here in the Bluff City.
The Magic of Doing One Thing at a Time by Tony Schwartz – “What we’ve lost, above all, are stopping points, finish lines and boundaries.” This statement could be applied not only to our work and our personal lives… but some of the relationships we have that need to end.
Sizzler and the Search for the American Dream by Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee – “And, of course, there was the salad bar.” I love a good salad bar.
‘America’s Test Kitchen’ Is Better Without Christopher Kimball by Dan Myers – No offense to Kimball… but it really is. It airs at 11 a.m. every Saturday on our local PBS station, WKNO. They’ve also released a new cookbook titled The Complete America’s Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook 2001-2017. 1200 recipes, 1075 pages… $19.95. I’m irrationally excited about receiving my copy.
Christianity Is Not A Political Party by Joya Smith – “It’s also my hope that those of us that claim this faith, work to better show its true essence in our actions, our words, and our policies.” I share this hope… but until fellow Christians take action to condemn the rampant hate spewed forth by the extremists, nothing is going to change. Everybody forgets Jesus wielded a whip of cords.
Why Liberals Are Wrong About Trump by Glenn Rockowitz – This piece is… delicious.
That’s all for now. More to come.
