A LOOK INSIDE THE BADER SCOTT BOOK CLUB DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF READING?
I ’m always a bit sad to see fall slip away each year. Not only do the last leaves hitting the ground signal winter’s chill is approaching, but they also mark the end of peak reading season — which is a real shame in my book. One of my favorite things to do in September, October, and November is camp out on the porch with a good story. The weather is almost always a perfect 60–75 degrees, and if I can get a fire going and the bugs decide to leave me alone, the ambiance is spectacular. I’m a firm believer in the transformational power of reading, and, as December is designated “Read a New Book Month,” I thought this would be a perfect time to shed some light on my favorite hobby. Not only am I a big reader myself, but I’ve done my best to promote the practice at the office by stepping up to run an in-house nonfiction book club for Bader Scott’s employees. It’s been a real success so far, and Seth and I are proud to see our staff learning more about themselves and each other as they read together.
from the various books we’re reading, and those strategies have helped us grow as people, lawyers, and business owners.
Right now, I’m reading “The Me I Want to Be” by John Ortberg, which is a great example of that learning curve. It explains
that if we spend all of our time and energy being who others want us to be, or who we think we’re supposed to be, we lose sight of our true, authentic selves. Reading it has already reaffirmed who I am, made me more comfortable in my skin, and given me some ideas on what to work on for the future! On a broader scale, the power of reading can be summed up by this quote from Wayne Dyer: “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” By immersing yourself in an author’s mindset, you can see the world and everyone in it from a new perspective. I’m always working on stepping into other people’s shoes, and I think reading has helped me with that and really strengthened my relationships with my clients, colleagues, friends, wife, and kids. The things I’ve learned through self-help books have also made me a more calm, collected adult — I shut down that emotional rollercoaster a long time ago, and I’m a better man for it!

We just finished reading “The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life Before 8 a.m.” by Hal Elrod, and I think his tips for how to set yourself up for success each morning have helped us all be a bit more productive. The “Life SAVERS,” he recommends making time for every morning are silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and scribe (writing). Of those, reading tops the list for me personally. I’m a huge fan of self- help books, and over the years, the advice I’ve gleaned reading them has helped me on my journey to better myself. Seth feels the same way, and I think that shared passion for constant self-improvement is a big part of why we work so well together. We’re always swapping tips and advice
