Kindle for Blackberry

Yesterday I downloaded the Kindle App for my Blackberry Storm.  Which I’m really excited about the idea of carrying less books when I travel.

So far, I’ve downloaded two books:

“The Man Who Was Thursday” by G.K. Chesterton (free download)

“Groundswell” by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff

What mobile apps are you using that are helping you manage your life better?

The Thanks I Get

Say Thanks!

Lately, I’ve been scheduling time to talk to people about what they are doing.  It’s important to my growth and development as a leader and though I am embedded in a tech-driven culture, I am still a people-person.

Today someone sent me a simple thank-you in the form of an gift-card.

“Thanks for the time on the phone the other day. I realize you have a packed schedule & respect the fact you took 45 mins to mentor. I appreciated the words of encouragement & the sheer fact of hearing from one who is involved in a career I’m seeking.”

What are you doing to thank and affirm others? What does this say to you?
