Coffee Table Chronicles

Coffee tables are the center piece to a living room. Whether you bought your table from Ikea or hand made one yourself, its the place where you store your remotes and keep other goodies that you would like your guest to see. Its also a nice little convo starter when you invite that special someone over to your place. I think books and magazines are the best accessory for any coffee table and having a good rotation is very important. My favorite types of books are art, culture, or business marketing related.

I’ve read a lot of books in the business marketing arena. The most important thing I’ve learned from all of these books is the power of action. All of these books have great stories of someone making millions or ways to influence others into believing in your brand but, at the core of all of these books someone acted on a small emotion. They had an idea and knew they could figure out a way to make it reality.

This is powerful in my eyes because we live in an instant gratification society with the advent of social media. What they tell you is that hard work is the key to all this. I know DJ Khaled is telling you that watering a lion and drinking water is the key to success but we obviously know its more than that.

Your coffee table should be a place where you find something to stimulate your mind. It should be a place where you keep small things that motivate you and remind you of special moments in your life and a past to keep cups from leaving your table wet. You cant be a savage in your own home right.
