Reading for the Road

Planning a trip. 

It will be a good time to wrap up some projects in addition to the main purpose: conducting a workshop on Equal Employment Opportunity. What goes into the briefcases is important.

Billing items, an audit checklist, and the draft of a client manual are key but what else should be tucked away? Plato and Marcus Aurelius are coming along. So too is Tony Horwitz's One for the Road about his hitchhiking travels in Australia. I really should finish Give and Take by Adam Grant but that will be left behind.

Now the reality: I'll pack them but will only have time, if lucky, for one.

If you are going to over-pack, let it be books.

Being on the road and reading unfamiliar material sometimes leads to unexpected insights. An interesting book that marries business and travel is the Jim Rogers book Investment Biker: Around the World with Jim Rogers. It also reminds me that I need to know more geography and the economic activity of various world locations.

For something a bit older, Steinbeck's Travels with Charley is a delight. Have a great trip!

Great pick. I'd forgotten that one.
