Reading on the Road

We took off this morning from Rice Lake to head to South Dakota for our first overnight stay on our way to Albuquerque. I mentioned to Joel that I still needed to read Seth Godin’s Poke the Box. So he asked if I’d read it aloud so he could get the information again. We always have great conversations while driving and especially if we’re reading a book that we can discuss.

Two pages later we’d had a long conversation. Seth always says things that make us stop, think, and rethink. We got a lot of things out of what we read today and I hope we finish reading it tomorrow. Poke the Box reinforces the thought of doing, taking the initiative. We can’t wait around for other people to pick us; we have to choose.
