Who will you be in five years?

Last night in Financial Peace University, Dave Ramsey quoted Charlie “Tremendous” Jones as saying, “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” Since he said that a number of years ago, before the advent of twitter, blogs, RSS feeds and TED talks, I would extrapolate the word “books” to include them.

So, that led me today to muse about the kind of person I will be in five years if I continue to read the books, blogs, and tweets I’m reading.

Books on my bedside table that I’m in the middle of reading:

One Year Bible (NLT)
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
Haiti: A Troubled History. From Pearl of the Carribean to Broken Nation by Phillipe Gerard
When Helping Hurts: Alleviating Poverty Without Hurting the Poor or Yourself by Steve Corbett

Who do you intend to be in five years? What books will you intentionally choose to read?
