What’s Cookies got to do with it?

My grand-kids love to have Papa read them books. Once it starts it doesn’t end until one or all of us are sound asleep. One of their favorite bedtime books is If You Give Mouse a Cookie. The wonderfully illustrated mouse character captures your heart because real human life experience is similar in so many ways. If you give a mouse a cookie he will ask for milk…followed by a chain of delightful and reasonable requests…all of them, delaying bedtime.

One night, after tucking in the littles, I headed off to confront my own bedtime reading. Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. Before long I could write my own book entitled, If You Give Papa a Life Hack. Indeed, he’d ask for a notepad to write down all the cool stuff…then he’d ask for a computer to go online…then he’d need his credit card to make a purchase…. See how this is going?  That’s the way Open The Gift Online Store started. The blog, the one about health, wellness and human performance began in 2003 but the-mouse-like-obsession, searching out amazing people with extraordinary life hacks — that began while reading Tim’s sure-to-keep-you-awake-too-long-into-the-night effort, Tools of Titans.
