I ran across this photo and it immediately revived my appreciation for Become An Idea Machine by Claudia Azula Altucher and James Altucher.
A few quotes from the book’s foreword by James:
“…idea generation, of the good kind, the kind that helps you AND OTHERS, which is the type you will exercise in this book, is worth ten times that, or more.”
“You can’t trust the old style of thinking anymore…You have to come up with a new way of thinking, a new way of having ideas…we can train it (the mind) to work for us, and to move us in the direction of a life of fulfillment. One day at a time.”
“The way is this: Come up with ten ideas a day. That’s it.”
“Coming up with ten ideas a day is like exercise. And exercise makes the idea muscle grow stronger.”
NOTE: The Kindle version is 99 cents. Yes, 99 cents! For a 251-page ebook with lots of…you guessed it, IDEAS! The link to the book is an affiliate link. If you happen to buy the book through that link, it doesn’t NOT affect the price, but it does give me a small commission, which I’ll be using to buy my small island in the Caribbean…or the yacht I’ll need to get to that island…or my therapist who’s exhausted himself trying to dispel my daily delusions.

It’s interesting…sometimes I dive right into these letters and other times I need the requests’ words and details to seep in. This has been a ‘let seep in’ month.
I do make a point of finishing letters for out-of-country requests first. And over time, I’ve wended my way through the USPS website to figure out the required postage and I have those stamps at the ready.
