Update: Kasey is the February Winner of Three Cups of Tea!
This month I am giving away a recent New York Times Bestseller – Three Cups of Tea.
The book is about a man who was sheltered by a Pakistani village after failing to climb K2, the second tallest mountain in the world. After learning the ways of the village and seeing how they were suffering from poverty, he pledged to return one day and build schools for them. It’s an inspirational true story that will open up everyone’s eyes to reaching out and supporting people in need.

I often sit and wonder how some people get super rich. I’m not stuck on getting rich myself. I’ve learned that being rich doesn’t really mean you’re happy or living out your purpose. Instead, I’m more just curious how, economically, people get rich.

Whenever I want to do something fun with friends we often find ourselves stuck playing the “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” game. Other times we find a great activity, but it costs us a buck too much. Few and far between are the great activities that are a lot of fun, yet less intrusive on the wallet. All of these activities can be found in my Activity C.L.U.B. with a new one being introduced each month.
The Lost Cousin of Golf
The sport of golf is one of the top sports in the world featuring a number of household names. A close cousin, although less famous, is the great sport of disc golf. Disc golf features the same general layout of golf – the goal of getting to a spot on each hole – but has a much lower cost to play and easier learning curve.
I have always loved the idea of public transportation. You get to sit there and not worry about navigating traffic. You have time to read or if you have an iPhone you can even play games and catch up on the news. Recently, I decided trying public transportation for a week would be a great social experiment. Believe it or not I survived, and after looking back, I realize I learned a lot about myself, people, and public transportation in Atlanta. Here are the highlights.

It’s easy to think that a big bonus, a lottery win, or a pot of gold will provide what you need for life, but in reality a person can make millions of dollars in their lifetime and still have little to show for it. While money may not be your most important goal, how you spend your money is important. One’s ability to properly spend on what has lasting value to them and save towards future goals will define his/her wealth much better than how much money they came across along the way.

Being an obsessed analytic, I am always trying new things to help me improve at life. Don’t worry, I do take time to enjoy life, but I want to always be improving. Surprisingly to me, all the books and articles I read that were full of wonderful advice did not have the biggest impact on guiding my direction. Instead, the most impacting activity I did was sitting down with peers and mentors and discussing my life.

One struggle in my life is motivation. Some people seem to have an abundance of energy, but I on the other hand like to ponder and think and when it comes down to just getting stuff done let’s just say I’m not a natural.
