The secret of getting things done is to act!-Dante Alighieri
The bright side of a long commute is I have time to listen to books or the radio or CD’s. My resent driving time was occupied by “Inferno” by Dan Brown. To readers who plans on reading it, I will not spoil it, but the once that not- I would strongly recommend it.
I found myself parked in the office parking lot, sitting and listening till it was absolutely “late” to get into the office. When I got home, I would sit an extra few minutes so I can just finish the chapter. I love the storylines and Dan Brown creates in his books. While listening or reading, I catch myself on Googling locations, painting, books that were referenced in his story. I am looking up symbols and Latin words and it takes you down that rabbit hole of the world wide web. This particular book takes the reader to Florence, Venice and Istanbul. I was fortunate to visit Italy a few years back, so it was even more fun listening about Robert Langdon running down the streets of these cities. I want to go to the galaries, little churches, famous cathedrals and see the little details that were the keys in solving all the mysteries.
So, here is an idea, I will go to mint.com and set up a goal for travel and call it “Inferno” or “Purgatorio” or “Paradiso”?
