Quiet!

What I’m reading | June-July ’13

… unleashing a  passion can transform a life. Quiet, p. 261

http://www.amazon.ca/Quiet-Power-Introverts-World-Talking/dp/0307352153

Just finished it.

Had this been written in the 1960s, I might have been spared a LOT of angst.

Fast-forward to the present, it is a watershed book that will help me save the rest of my life, but more importantly help me to guide the nascent lives of my precious boys as they carry the burden of being introverts in an extrovert world.

So many salient snippets from this gem.

One such snippet may hit home.

I draw energy from conversing about ideas, debating issues, deconstructing issues and ideas, not from glad-handing and prattling on about the latest gossip, celeb news or vacation plans which drains me.
