Another pal had dropped in last night. He’s doing his own business and seems to be doing well. And by that I mean, he’s fit. I think that, for me, it’s a pretty good indicator of where you are in life. He’s in shape so I’m guessing whatever hours he’s working is leaving him with enough time and cash to stay healthy and enough good sense to make that a priority. Anyway, we had dinner and he asked me if I wanted to join him because I apparently showed signs of being good at business (which is something no one had ever told me before.) Anyway, it’s odd the way he sees me and I’m a little wary of doing business with friends, etc. But he told me about this book ‘The Cash-Flow Quadrant’ by Robert Kiyosaki, the same person who wrote ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’. I’m not sure if I’ll ever do business but I do want more time and enough money to get as much time as I’d like. So, let’s see. Maybe I’ll read the book.
Speaking of reading, I just finished reading 'Bird by Bird' by Anne Lamott. It's a short essay on her musings on the writing life and the importance of having a buddy from who feedback can be expected and relied upon. It's quite nice.
