Book Tag

My mom wants me to play a game of Book Tag.

1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, go down to the 4th sentence.
3. Post the text of the following 3 sentences on your blog.
4. Name of the book and the author.
5. Tag three people of your own.

Here’s the quote:

You can use five-by-eight inch index cards to make your own blank schedule, or adapt it to whatever schedule format is already in your daily appointment book. Note that I’ve left you twenty-four hours to schedule work and play. This way you account for every hour, including sleep and meals.

That’s from The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play by Neil Fiore, Ph.D. Recommended to me by Merlin Mann of 43Folders.com. I’ve been meaning to read it for a couple of months now. But I’m not procrastinating, really!

  1. On September 1, it was time to get the oil changed, so our account owner took the Freedom Account checkbook to the place she always has her oil changed, wrote out check #101 to Jiffy Lube for $19.95, wrote the entry into the subaccount book when she got home, and did the substraction to come with a new balance of $236.05. Regular monthly deposits occurred again on September 5 and October 5, bringing the new balance to $364.05. Have you ever noticed how car trouble seems to come in waves?

    From “Debt-Proof Living” by Mary Hunt. Great book on budgeting maybe a better way.

  2. “As Socrates revealed the depth of his wisdom by doubting that he knew much, Franklin showed how numble he was by second-guessing his humility. A wry smile must have curled Franklin’s lips as he wrote ‘imitate Jesus and Socrates.’ The apparently simple injunction contained a hidden assumption: that Jesus and Socrates modeled the same life of virtue, or at least two complementary visions of that life.”

    From “Jesus in America: Personal Savior, Cultural Hero, National Obsession” by Richard Wightman Fox, Ph.D. Excellent book on American religious history written from a nonreligious but sympathetic perspective.
