great reads

what do two nerds do when they go on a long road trip? listen to iPod books!

one we are currently listening to:

Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else – Geoff Colvin. This has been fun to listen to and talk about as we drive – it is profoundly inspiring and motivating.

and the one I am (re) reading:

The Goal – Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt

This fantastically interesting book covers Eli Goldratt’s business management philosophy, the Theory of Constraints. There is always at least one constraint standing in the way of achieving goals, and identifying and solving them leads to success. Sometimes there are many constraints, and when one is addressed another will appear. I can relate in a business sense and the book grabs your attention with appealing story line, but the theories translate to any part of life.

I highly recommend both!
