The Best Advice I Ever Got By Katie Couric
I borrowed this book from the library and found it to be an inspirational read. At first I thought that I would skim through and read perhaps just the pages by people whom I recognized. I found it to not only be a quick read but one with many hidden golden nuggets of thoughtful advice.
One of my favorites, in it's entirety is Martha Stewarts advice to Gather the Good Things:
So the pie isn't perfect? Cut it into wedges. When faced with a challenge, evaluate or assess the situation, gather the good things in sight, abandon the bad, clear your mind, and move on. Focus on the positive. Stay in control, and never panic.
I did not know anything about Katie Couric before I read this book and although it is not about her- there are snippets of her own life story which is both insightful and sad.
