Rick Lott’s summer reading list

Mayor Rick Lott spoke to a group of 119 straight-A students during Tomlin Middle School’s second annual Lock Ceremony. Among the advice he gave students to help them continue their success, he offered two of his favorite books as god motivational summer reading.

“Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World” by William H. Raven, Lott said, is a good example of how the little things, like making your bed, can help lead to positivity by starting every day with an accomplishment.

“Rhinoceros Success” by Scott Alexander, he said, helps teach that developing thick skin, like that of a Rhinoceros, can prevent outside negativity from effecting your own positivity.
