Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind

My day job varies greatly from the freelance work that I do. My day job is very task orientated, with tasks that have well defined beginnings and endings. My freelance work is a lot more creative. It’s a lot of writing, researching, and strategizing. Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind is a productivity book from the folks at 99u. If you do creative work, this would be a great purchase.

Replay

Replay was originally published back in 1986, but I just found out about it last month. It’s about a forty-three year old man named Jeff Winston who dies while at work only to wake up back in college. The only difference is that he remembers everything from his previous life. What if you could live your life over again?

Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo!

The history of Yahoo! is quite an interesting story. From its humble beginnings as “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web” to the company that owns Flickr and Tumblr, it has changed pretty dramatically since it was started by Jerry Yang and David Filo in 1995. It started as a web portal, but it has evolved into much more. Marissa Mayer and the Fight to Save Yahoo! is a new book that looks at how Yahoo! got in the shape it’s in, Marissa Mayer’s controversial rise at Google, and her attempts to revive one of the original internet giants.

Consumed: A Supernatural Thriller

Consumed is a book about a small town in Rhode Island. The main character is an aspiring author who is doing research for a new book. As he’s getting ready to leave town, he has some unexpected car trouble and ends up staying around while it’s repaired. During that time, he stumbles upon a murder that turns out to be the second one within a week.

Last Child in the Woods

Children in 2014 live a very different life than the one I did in the late 80s and early 90s. Instead of iPads or iPods, we had Nintendo and Super Nintendo. And we didn’t spend our days in front of them. We spent them outside playing wiffle ball, hide-n-seek, and putting lighting bugs in a mason jar. Last Child in the Woods is a book about the differences between today’s children and the ones from decades ago.
