The Tao of Willie by Willie Nelson with Turk Pipkin

I’m actually not much of a country fan, but Willie Nelson is an American icon. To be honest, I only know a few of his songs, but this short book caught my attention while I was browsing through my library’s audiobook titles.

Nelson shares his stories, jokes and lessons he has learned during his life. I enjoyed listening to him talk about his friends, religion, politics. I don’t know that he said anything earth-shaking, but that’s not the point. It’s about him sharing his thoughts and maybe giving you some help finding happiness.

Let the jerks of the world serve as the perfect example of what you don’t want to be. You’ll be a heck of a lot happier, and in the long run, there’s a chance that other person at work will end up asking what your secret is. Why are you the happy one? In other words, don’t let your thoughts think you. Besides, if you’re really gonna get pissed, don’t waste it on your family, friends, or coworkers, save it for something that really matters.
