Since I'm making folders for everything else...

Recent listens, though I'm pretty much up to date on this one:

- Why Smart People Do Dumb Things (https://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/08/09/podcast-224-why-smart-people-do-dumb-things/) with Malcolm Gladwell
- How Big Tech Companies Are Hijacking Your Mind (https://www.artofmanliness.com/2018/01/18/world-without-mind-franklin-foer-interview/) with Franklin Foer
- The Motivation Myth (https://www.artofmanliness.com/2018/01/02/podcast-367-motivation-myth/) with Jeff Haden

The Leader's Bookshelf (https://www.artofmanliness.com/2018/01/23/leaders-reading-list/) with Admiral James Stavridis.

Lots of quality book recommendations therein, specifically The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara, the most commonly recommended book by leaders interviewed in Admiral Stavridis' book as well as bonus frequent recommendation (also recommended by General Mcchrystal's long time aide-de-camp on Tim Ferriss' podcast) Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield.

It's less than a Gemmell book, the killer angels, so I guess i better give it a read.

Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield.

I am pretty sure I read this years ago, but I have absolutely zero recollection of anything in it...

Boy, I sure hope that I've already read about 900 of those books ... ;-)

Just read a book a week and you'll be done just short of 20 years. Plenty of time!

Old joke: How do you make God laugh? Tell him your plans.

That's a good one, though I heard it bit different ... "make a plan", but same thing. Good to see you, old friend!

Wow, I forgot to post the other one which I think is a must listen (if not a must read, as per the book in question) for Bakker fans:

- Why Visiting Dark Places Is Good for the Soul (https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/podcast-485-why-visiting-dark-places-is-good-for-the-soul/)

It's been too long, Tao!

I like the "make a plan" version. Depends upon one's view of whether or not one can "talk" to God.

That would be an excellent debate topic. Perhaps a "Bakker vs. Peterson" showdown?
