Credibility by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner
The authors lay the foundation which provides a thorough understanding of credibility, how it is earned and how easily it is lost.
The Gift of Fear by Gavin DeBecker
If you have a daughter, sister or wife I strongly encourage this book. DeBecker does an outstanding job explaining the various aspects of fear and how to use it to your advantage; most importantly, how to not discredit your gut feelings based upon “reality.”
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
Pausch has a terminal illness and is also the father to young children. His last lecture is a culmination of things he would tell his kids, if they were old enough to comprehend the message. The Last Lecture is his message to his children.
Mitch Album has written several books, most notably Tuesdays with Morrie, I have found all of his books to be excellent and recommend any of them.
Here are a few resolutions that, if all members of the community embraced, would make Boulder City the safest place to live, work and visit.
Lock your doors: Doors to your garage, your car, your house, your storage shed lock them all.
Stop theft: If it is not yours, don’t take it.
Keep your hands to yourself: Domestic battery is an issue the police department deals with daily.
Take a walk, be observant and vigilant: If it looks suspicious, give us a call at (294-9224 option 1).
If you have a citation or an arrest warrant, be proactive: Call the court (293-9278).
Don’t drink and drive: The costs, be it emotional or monetary, are too high.
Lastly, get involved: Seek opportunities to volunteer with any one of the great volunteer organizations that make Boulder City great!
Have a safe and joyful holiday season!
