All About The Mekong

As the Mekong River flows from Tibet through the rice-producing regions of Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia, it hosts a fascinating underwater paradise of exotic fish. Only the Amazon River can compete with the Mekong’s diverse species of marine life. As the third largest freshwater fish in the world, the Mekong giant catfish can weigh over 750 pounds. At full maturity, the giant stingray can weigh up to 1,300 pounds. Known in the region as “Nine Dragons,” “Mother Water,” and “Turbulent River,” the Mekong River has played a fascinating role in wars throughout history. In the Vietnam War, the Mekong River provided a natural battlefront line between Vietnam and Laos. In ancient times, the Thai people escaped across the Mekong from China to establish their independence as the nation of Siam.

How Strategic Reading Can Transform Your Career

This photo is the stack of books next to my desk I need to read. It’s big, but it’s not random. My dad used to read even more than me, but WHAT he read were random books. Books his friends recommended. Others he found on sale. Books he stumbled upon. On the other hand, I read strategically. I believe to maximize your time, and increase your knowledge, you need a strategic plan for reading. Here’s what I mean:

1. Start by focusing on books that deal with issues you’re struggling with right now.  When I’m writing my own books, I collect everything I can find on that subject, and immerse myself in it. When I have a speaking engagement, I isolate the books in my library on that particularly subject. I want to learn information that helps me with challenges I’m dealing with today.

2. Save the leisure reading for the beach.  I’m a huge fan of leisure reading – but I hold those books for times when I actually have “leisure.” When I try to read a new novel in the middle of a big project, or when I’m stressed out, it’s a waste of time. But on a plane, I have all the time in the world. Nearly every summer our family spends time at Donner Lake, near Lake Tahoe. I save a stack of leisure books for that trip, because I can relax and really enjoy them. Last summer I read “Unbroken” by the lake and enjoyed it enormously. FULL POST

13 Ways You Waste Your Money

About once a year I go through a phase—a deliberate phase—in which I evaluate our family finances to see where we’re doing well and where we aren’t doing so well. I especially look for places we are spending money we don’t need to spend—bills that are too high, subscriptions we no longer need, and all of those little money-wasters that eventually add up. And over the years, I’ve collected quite a list of ways that we, and perhaps you, waste money. Here are some of them:

The Daily Latte

I read quite a few books on personal finance and there is a trend I have noticed in recent years: Every book now uses Starbucks as the negative example of financial management. The math really is that simple: $5 per day for that latte, multiplied by 365 days in the year, adds up to an extra mortgage payment or two. And if both of you go every day, the damage is doubled. Consider brewing at home, or at least sticking with the brewed instead of specialty coffees. FULL POST
