Reading self-improvement books

Since I finished college, I have been on a reading self improvement books kick. LOL. As I've mentioned recently, I've been reading Dale Carnegie's book about stopping worrying and now I'm re-reading How to Win Friends and Influence People.

One thing that has really struck me in that book is the idea that insisting that others are wrong and you are right is NOT a good idea. This is really a problem for me, especially with Tom. I have literally called someone to ask them a question just to prove that I was right. And this wasn't a life or death discussion, it was how to pronounce a popular singer's name. So I am working really hard at stopping that.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

LOL, Di! I would venture to guess that it is a problem that most people have.
