Hello World, and welcome to DraftSix.com. At its core this site is a personal project made to encourage me to read more. With my academic life coming to an end, I feel like now is the perfect time to take my learning into my own hands.
For this reason I plan to use this site to explore the themes and ideas found in the books and articles I discover. Hopefully the breadth of material and the journey of their discovery will help us to grow.
That where you come in dear reader. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the books I read and what you took away from them. Also, book suggestions are always welcome – What books have positively effected your life? I hope this can be a shared journey where together we can discover ideas worth exploring.
Pieces concerning books on DraftSix.com are NOT reviews. I have neither the desire nor the expertise to critique these writers. The articles are simply a discussion of things that struck me, I find particularly interesting or can be applied to our lives.
In my mind there is no more important goal in life than to constantly try and get a little better – where every day is a new draft we can use to alter and refine ourselves in order to progress. What better way to catalyze this process than to explore the thoughts and beliefs of some of the greatest minds who have come before us.
I also have some other ambitions for this little corner of the internet but only time will tell whether these come to fruition. I have always admired the abilities of great writers and story tellers to communicate ideas in a compelling and engaging way, and hope to develop these skill during this journey.
To be honest I’m not 100% sure of what I want this project to become, but I’ve allowed it to simply remain an idea for far too long.
Emboldened by the words of Tolkien I know this will be a fruitful journey, and if not, at least I’ll have tried.
Not all those that wander are lost
