Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.
-- John Wayne
I'm currently enjoying Katie Couric's "The Best Advice I Ever Got." It was serendipitous how the book found me, how I found the book. I think it'll be instrumental in the major life events of the coming days. *wink*
From the cover --
What was the tipping point for Malcolm Gladwell? What unscripted event made Meryl Streep who she is? How did Mario Batali cook up his recipe for success? In this inspiration-packed book, Katie Couric reports from the front lines of the worlds of politics, entertainment, sports, philantropy, the arts and business -- distilling the ingenious hard-won insights of leaders and visionaries, who tell us all how to take chances, follow our passions, cope with criticism, and, perhaps most important, commit to something greater than ourselves.
Delightful, empowering and moving, The Best Advice I Ever Got is the perfect book for anyone who is thinking about the future, contemplating taking a risk, or daring to make a leap into the great unknown. This book is for all of us, young or old, who want to see how today's best and brightest got it right, got it wrong, and came out on top.
