Hello, I’m Joshua Best

I live in Omaha, Nebraska and have been working on SAP Payroll/Employee Central Payroll for the last 10 years or so. I’m currently a Senior Consultant for AspireHR.

This website is where I’ll keep a few thoughts I have, as they come up and also a few book notes as I read. I’m also trying to publish monthly updates on what I’ve been up to. If you’d like to get these monthly updates delivered by e-mail, consider subscribing to my newsletter.

😀 Updates since last month

Updated: July 1, 2022

📗 Book I’m currently reading

📕 Book I finished reading last month

  • The Case for God by Karen Armstrong
    • This was not what I thought it was going to be.  It was basically a history of Western religion and it was very dry.

🎸 Music I’ve been listening to

  • Europe 2009 (Live), Dave Matthews Band
    • I seem to forget about Dave Matthews Band from time to time and then re-discover them.  I love all the instruments they use.

🎧 Podcast episodes I thought were interesting

  • MFCEO100, Andy Frisella
    • I don’t listen to this podcast regularly anymore – but for awhile it was a good one and this episode was one of the best.  “The bottom line is winners win and losers lose.”

🎥 Videos I thought were worth watching

  • Obama’s speech at 50th Anniversary of the Selma Marches, Barack Obama
    • “We are Lewis and Clark… and Sacagewa; Pioneers who braved the unfamiliar, followed by a stampede of farmers and miners and entrepreneurs and hucksters. That’s our spirt, that’s who we are.”  Obama was a very good speaker.
  • Biblical Series I: Introduction to the Idea of God, Jordan Peterson
    • I was watching this lecture series at the same time I was reading A Case for God as a supplement.  I didn’t make it through all of the lectures, but really enjoyed the videos I made it through.

Quote I’ve been thinking about

Why is there something rather than nothing?

– An old philosophical question
