I remember the first time I visited the office of a really successful businessman. He had created media empire worth billions. In his office, high above the city where we lived, his desk sat next to floor to ceiling glass panels which offered a really amazing view. What I found more interesting than the view was the unique collection of seemingly unrelated items displayed in the bookcases next to his desk. When he entered the office he was surprised to see me looking at the titles of the books in this book cases and not enjoying the view. We talked for a while about the books and various items in those amazing walnut cases. Everything had a story. Everything together told the story of his journey. This was a new way of thinking about book cases and their purpose in your office. 22 years ago I visited that office and since I've been collecting the items that tell my story. Things I love and that have influenced me. Here is a photo of my book cases. Ask me about anything you see here and I will tell you it's story.
