Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten (or more) friends, including me, so I’ll see…

1) 1984 (George Orwell, 1949)

2) The Catcher in the Rye (J. D. Salinger., 1951)

3) The Tao of the Wu (RZA, 2009)

4) Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury, 1953)

5) Beachcombing at Miramar: The Quest for an Authentic Life (Richard Bode, 1996) 

6) Einstein’s Dreams (Alan Lightman, 2004)

7) The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Stephen Chbosky, 1999) 

8) You Will Go to the Moon (Mae and Ira Freeman, 1959)

9) The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything (Ken Robinson, 2009)

Asia (inspired by x)

We really didn’t have enough money, enough people, or enough time for our road trip. I almost called it off when I originally started planning it. But there will never be a good time to travel the country for four weeks, just like there will never be a good time to quit your job, read that book, or join a gym. You will probably never have enough money, time, connections, willpower, whatever—to feel ready to make a dream happen. And this is the lesson I learned: eventually you have to stop giving yourself excuses and make the jump.
