It’s almost a new year! 2017 is closing out fast. I have racked up my fair share of books, podcasts, and other resources. And I wanted to share a few recommendations for 2018.
Here’s what I am currently reading, listening to, and pondering. I hope you enjoy one of these for yourself.
I am currently listening to The Road Back to You by Cron & Stabile
It is a great primer on the Enneagram. The Enneagram is a personality profile self-assessment tool. If you are unfamiliar with it, then this book is a great place to start. Those who want a deeper approach might try Richard Rohr’s book on the Enneagram.
I’m sort of a podcast junkie. Here’s one I have been listening to more recently. Kevin Kruse’s podcast on leadership offers some great practical advice. Each podcast is short and leaves you with something to apply now.
I’m not a big television or movie buff. However, I do binge Netflix occasionally. My latest? Broadchurch starring David Tennant (Dr Who) and Oliva Colman. Excellent mystery show that pulls you in on the first episode.
My reading has been slow the last few months. I’m in the middle of a few books. My current read is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s a fun book and easy read on creativity. If you need a kick in the pants and a good locker room speech, then read this book!
A quote I’m meditating on: You are not required to save the world with your creativity! (Elizabeth Gilbert)
A scripture I’m preaching on soon:
Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.” – 1 Kings 17:1
Let me know a few of your recommendations in the comments below. I’m always looking for new podcasts, books, and YouTube channels.
Happy New Year!
