1. Read something you might not agree with. I’m currently reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. What a doozy this one is. I actually might (sorta) agree with what Ayn Rand is trying to say if she wasn’t such a bad writer.

Anyway, with the recent growing popularity of the Libertarian movement I became         curious to read what many conservatives consider the source to be their bible. Full disclosure; I’m a wicked liberal when it comes to social issues but likely smack in the middle when it comes to economic issue.

As an MBA I have a strong academic background in economics but I’ve also been around long enough to know that when people get involved economic theory often breaks down. I do believe we have too much government involvement, which is a big part of this book.

This book is much too long so it’s going to take a while to get through. Maybe I’ll finish before the next election.

2.  Go on a hike. Here’s a short list of some “off the beaten path” hikes in Southern NH. I’ll have to give some of these a shot.

3.  Since the Low Five is the King of the Fives, Give your Mom a Low Five!!
