Good things to read.
E-Squared by Pam Grout. Pam and I got to know each other because Amazon kept telling my readers to buy her book and vice-versa. Pam is an exceptional person and an even better writer. E-Squared can be transformational is you’re open to becoming a more powerful influencer of your life experiences; it’s a lot of fun even if you’re not.
Who’s Afraid of Schrodinger’s Cat by Ian Marshall and Danah Zohar. The reason I love Who’s Afraid of Schrodinger’s Cat to much is twofold. It’s format allows you to easily investigate quantum physics by topic or area of interest. It also emphasizes what I find to be the most important thing about quantum physics – radically different and effective ways we can improve how and why we do almost anything the way we do it.
Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini, Ph.D. Influence is one of my favorite books of all time because it is not only incredibly interesting and entertaining, but it is also research-based. Dr. Cialdini and his graduate students spent six years doing field work and identified six automatic triggers that every human is influenced by. You’ll forever have fun spotting these triggers in every aspect of your life.
Good things to watch.
Arrested Development. I love to laugh; taking myself less seriously is very important to me. Arrested Development is a somewhat overlooked comedic classic. An all-star cast and some of the best network comedy writing make the original FOX network-version a must-watch.
Bridesmaids. Bridesmaids is crude and low-brow in places, so be forewarned if you’re easily offended. Yet I have never laughed harder in a movie theatre. Kristen Wig pulls off a performance we can laugh at and cheer for at the same time. And Melissa McCarthy gives a comedic star turn like John Belushi did in Animal House.
What the Bleep Do We Know. What the Bleep Do We Know has received its share of criticism and some of that may be justified. Yet I love this film as a conversation starter capable of opening important discussions. The global consciousness shift toward personal empowerment of our creative abilities to influence our life experiences is one I proudly push forward. Investigate further on your own, yet this movie is an entertaining way to join the conversation.
Good things to use.
Click to Tweet. Click to Tweet is a really cool tool for anyone with a website. It allows you, in very simple fashion, to designate sentences in our posts or articles for easy tweeting by your visitors. All your site visitor needs do is click the linked sentence you create and she can automatically tweet it. It’s simple, cool, and my readers really enjoy it.
The Keurig Coffee Machine. As an author, I really appreciate coffee. I wasn’t a Keurig convert until my wife received one for her birthday a couple months ago – now I wouldn’t want to be without one. The convenience of brewing one cup of coffee at a time, combined with the ability to brew different types of coffee with each cup, is amazing and fun.
Kindle Direct Publishing. I wrote for my father for over a decade. My dad, Dr. Cliff Kuhn, M.D. (The Laugh Doctor) has self-published since the late 1980’s; selling books used to be very challenging and expensive for authors who weren’t household names. KDP, however, allows any author (providing she has high quality/high value content) a platform from which she can sell books with the “big boys” right out of the gate. If an author is willing to publicize herself, the sky’s the limit; my rise to best-selling author couldn’t have happened without a partner like KDP.
