Art of the Deal
I was amped when I came home from this last trip because a couple of books I had ordered had come in and one of them was Trumps, "Art of the Deal" - My buddy Deyl recommended that I read it and I'm loving it! I had to order it b/c nobody sells the hard back version anymore and I hate reading paper back books. Reading a paper back book is like eating a nice filet on a paper plate or drinking wine out of a plastic cup. If I'm gonna invest time and energy into a book I want a real one.
On the first page trump says,
"I try not to schedule too many meetings...you can't be imaginative or entreprenurial if you've got too much structure. I prefer to just come to work each day and see what develops."
This is a lot like I work. I hate planning things and I like to keep my options open. To get me to commit to anything is like pulling teath and my friends will verify that I always give myself an out. Yes - this is also probably why I'm still single....
