The Current Book I am Reading
I just started to reading John Maxwell's The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You.
If you’ve never read The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, you’ve been missing out on one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. If you have read the original version, then you’ll love this new expanded and updated one.

  • Every Law of Leadership has been sharpened and updated
  • Seventeen new leadership stories are included
  • Two new Laws of Leadership are introduced
  • New evaluation tool will reveal your leadership strengths―and weaknesses
  • New application exercises in every chapter will help you grow

Great book read with a group exploring the laws. Nice to get other points of view with the group definitely makes me think about how I want to be viewed as a leader in my organization.

My Favorite Kitchen Gadget

WoW, what a cool tool. I have used my Anova Culinary PCB-120US-K1 Bluetooth Precision Cooker, for a few months now. 

This is by far my favorite kitchen gadget. It can make skirt steak as tender as tenderloin. It makes all meats so flavorful and is super easy to use. We never eat a steak without using the sous vide. There are tons of recipes, but we just put whatever meat with whatever seasonings we want and let it go for varying times and it always comes out super juicy and super flavorful. After sous vide, we either throw the meat on a gas grill with no protective plate over the flame or in a hot cast iron grill to caramelize the meat. Our favorite thing to do is buy the HEB beef fajitas and sous vide them for 3-4 hours and then toss them on the grill for about 3 minutes each side....they are fantastic...even more flavor!
