Documentary film worth watching (on Amazon / Netflix): Minimalism – It is an interesting look at how “stuff” does not make us happy. It follows two guys on their journey towards spreading the good word about living a less cluttered life. I am not ready to move into a 200 sq. foot house, but I like thinking about how I could focus more on relationships and less on stuff.
Documentary film worth watching (on Amazon): Thundercloud – This is an fascinating movie about one of the best waves in the world called Cloudbreak, Fiji. The movie was recommended to me by Mike Graney a friend and fellow surfer Dad. Amazingly, this is a movie about the biggest swell to ever hit Cloudbreak and the people who surfed it. There is jaw-dropping footage of the swell. However, this movie is not just for surfers, my wife watched it and loved it. There is a lot of personal intrigue regarding the professional tour, big wave surfers, respect, and the pecking order in the surfing world.
Book I am Reading: The Fast Close by Steven M. Bragg – A boring book with enormous value for business owners. A recipe to reduce/eliminate fraud, increase efficiency in your organization, decrease costs, and gain control of your business through accurate and timely accounting. I love the book, and we used many of the principles espoused in the book to build the TGG Way best practices used by hundreds of our clients nationwide.
New recipe I used: The Vegan Buddha Bowl: Ok. If you are not a vegan, this recipe sound like it is going to taste terrible. It doesn’t. I was blown away at how easy it was to make and how good it tasted. Then, the next day, when you have left over avocado vinaigrette, you can eat a steak with said avocado vinaigrette (like I did) and feel better about your overall diet.
Music Show to See: Jeff Bridges and the Abiders. A mix of country, blues, and rock played by the Dude and his band of excellent musicians. Awesome show. Jeff is a great performer. At one point, my wife leaned over and said, “That is a guy who is really enjoying his life.” I aspire to that quote.
