I had the pleasure of reading this book last week.  Fascinating. Inspiring. Highly recommended.

The book discusses 7 Principles:

• Curiosita - Am I asking the right questions?
• Dimostrazione - How can I improve my ability to learn from my mistakes and experiences? 
• Sensazione - What is my plan for sharpening my senses as I age?
• Sfumato - How can I strengthen my ability to hold creative tension to embrace the major paradoxes of life?
• Arte/Scienza - Am I balancing Arte and Scienza at home and at work?
• Corporalita - How can I nurture the balance of body and mind?
• Connessione - How do all the above elements fit together? How does everything connect to everything else?

I think I have many of these naturally but it was awesome to read about additional ways to "wake up" my senses and introduce even more creativity into my life.  And the information on the body and diet was also very good.  Amazing what we can learn from our ancestors.  Who have you learned from?

Monday night I drove to Santa Cruz to see author Chris Gullebeau.  I admit, I love author events and rarely pass up an opportunity to meet one.  I even got to visit the BookShop  Santa Cruz which has the Espresso Book Machine  - I will be coming back soon to make good use of that!  

Back to Chris.  I had read the $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future in May, but unfortunately it was buried in my storage unit and I do hate missing the opportunity for an autograph.  Chris was unfazed about the msising book and promptly signed this for me instead:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How awesome is that?  

The only regret I have is that I had a library book with me of his other book: The Art of Non-Conformity: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World   and I should have had him sign that too for an unexpected surprise to the next reader.  

The evening was fantastic.  I met a lot of creative people and even got a new business idea! Details to follow. Read Chris's books - they are fun reads, very motivational and I bet you will end up learning something or changing the way you think about your life.  It's a great experience.
