Whatever you hope and plan 
to accomplish in 2014, 
it will require you to focus.
We can help!





Yes, 2014 is upon us.  And, as you celebrate this holiday season, you also think about what you plan to accomplish in 2014.  


We have selected two books to help you turn those plans into reality.


Focus:  The Hidden Driver of Excellence is the book I have selected for our January gathering.  Daniel Goleman, the emotional intelligence guru, will help all of us focus more clearly as we plan our efforts for the new year.


Karl Krayer has selected Remote:  Office not Required by the 37signals guys.  I enjoyed their first book, Rework, and look forward to this presentation from Karl.


Come begin your year with us.  These books will help you focus, and plan your work for maximum effectiveness.


{And, January is the perfect time to invite a friend.  Please do so, letting them know about the content-rich, networking-rich experience of the First Friday Book Synopsis}. 


We hope to see you January 3.  Come join us.  Learn with us.  I think you will find it to be a valuable use of an early Friday morning.
