Is it just me, or is TV getting better? And is that a good thing or not?

I wrote a piece about how I went from watching almost NO television, to suddenly having more shows in my Netflix and Amazon Prime queues than I can keep up with.

You might enjoy the post. Here's a link for you to check it out. I'd welcome your comments, too.

I know that I have a lot of habits – some good, some bad – but I'd never considered how much they really dominate my everyday life.

And then I read Charles Duhigg's book on the subject. I've read plenty of books that were interesting or influential, but there are only a handful of them that have cause me to instantly adjust the way I live.

The Power of Habit isn't just an eye-opening look at how our habits create subconscious patterns, it also explains how simple little tweaks can help you to take a bad habit and make it something of value in your world.

And it's not just in your personal life. Businesses are beginning to suggest that managers and employees spend some time with this book. There's an entire section on the habits of successful organizations. If anything, read the segment on how Target was able to use customers' habits to actually predict when a woman became pregnant. It's fascinating.

If you're looking to make some changes in your life (either personal or professional – or both) then it's worth a read.

The Power of Habits is available at all three locations of The Tattered Cover Book Store, and if you mention at checkout that it's part of Dom's Book Club, then you'll get 20% off.

Not only has Panera been feeding us all day for The Dom and Jane Charity Marathon, but they are also giving back to community. They've had the Operation Dough-nation box up at the 31 Denver area locations throughout the year, and they have proudly collected $65k, which translates into 260,000 meals! So amazing! Support the businesses that support our neighbors.
