    1. Stop Comparing Yourself To Others. 

    Comparing yourself to others is the thief of your joy. You are enough. You always have been. At times we can lose sight of who we are because the outside world relentlessly attempts each day we are alive to sell and tell us what we should or should not be.

    2. Get 1% Better Every Day.

    Commit to getting 1% better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually every day. Each of us is the architect and designer of our life and career. Never let a day go by in which you have not done one thing to become better today than you were yesterday.

    3. Make Everyone You Encounter Feel Important.

    The most profound knowledge is the realization that you don’t know what good will come from talking to strangers. Avoid treating people like they are menu options or products in a catalog. We all wear an invisible mask that says: Make Me Feel Important. Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody!

    4. Surround Yourself With Wisdom.

    Learning provides you new dots while wisdom connects them. Don’t just feed your body. Feed your mind. Spend much of your life striving to gather timeless knowledge from the thoughts, behaviors, innovations, and experiences of others. A person who does not read and nurture their curiosity is no better off than a person who cannot read. The best never stop learning and getting better.

    5. Don’t Feed Negative Thoughts Nor Entertain Toxic People.

    The mind is everything. What you think you become. When it comes to fostering relationships, spend less time with people who deplete your energy and more time with people who inspire you. Don’t walk away from negative people: Run and Don’t Look Back!

    6. Become Comfortable With Criticism.

    It is a wise person who views criticism as a gift. Your growth depends on your willingness to be uncomfortable. Learning is a process that has no beginning, middle, or end. Self-education is life itself. Each day we must unlearn to relearn while undoing to do. 

    7. Give The World Your Best and Whole Self.

    The better you know yourself, the better capable you are of enhancing your life. Investing in your personal growth and professional development is the best investment you will ever make. Before you can love and lead others, you must consistently love and lead yourself. 

    Life is a self-discovery journey, not merely a destination. When December 31, 2020, approaches, how do you want to remember this year? Relentlessly focus on doing more of what matters and less of what does not. It is never too late to design the life you wish to live. But you must courageously take that first step in trust and grace towards cultivating that change from within!

    Love the thread. I’m an avid reader...I’m always reading something. At the moment I’m reading Harlan Coben Tell No One. 

     I'm glad we have some readers in the community. Do you have any 2020 reading goals?

    I need to get an audio book of the art of war. 

    I have the book. But I want to make sure I cover all bases. I feel like audio books carry the slack for me, once my mind starts to wonder, while I’m reading.  The audio keeps me on track, and focused on the story line. 

     Talk about a book that has stood the test of time! I highlight this piece to show the importance of effective writing. Through writing, we share our experiences from generation to generation.

    197-276 with a net of 98.65.

     197 wins and 276 losses with a net of 98.65? I guess when you win,  you bet big, huh?

    Read Animal Farm, now reading 1984

     1984 has come up a few times in my life this month. I guess that's a hint to pick it up and read it

    Currently reading The Godfather books. After seeing the movies, I can only imagine what the detail in them!

     This is where I tell on myself. I still need to watch the series. I know..... I am way behind

    Currently reading the martian, and I can't get Matt Damon's fkin voice out my head man.  Its pretty solid.  Helps with all the "Oh no way that could really happen" moments from the movie.  Some of the continuity is definitely explained scientifically.  Very high level of writing, that while I can appreciate is sometimes a bit much after long stressful days of requiring high interactive brain activity. 

     The Matt Damon thing cracks me up.... thanks for sharing

    I'm ok at 402-355. It would be a neat feature if MH tracked overall records and even winning streaks. Perhaps even create leagues or allow clans to compete across the forum.

    Reversing the Trend

    Whether from being left untended or from constant use, things will always be inclined to grow old and wear out. Knees will start to ache and catch. Gaskets will leak. Organization will trend toward chaos. The deodorant stick will shrink smaller and smaller. It's the nature of life. Downhill. Showing age.

    It's even the nature of marriage. What starts with candlelight, tuxedo, and a minister's blessing slowly gives way to the late local news, complaints about your snoring, and fixing yourself the last piece of toast for breakfast. Where's a little romance when you need it? Probably not under warranty.

    o whether you like it or not, today will be another battle against muscle loss and tooth decay. But to keep these same sorts of erosion from happening in your home and marriage, the Bible offers you the following prescription: "Encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness" (Hebrews 3:13) or by life's constant tendency to drag you down, if not drag you apart.

    Marriage may never outgrow a few toilet seat disagreements. But yours can withstand—and even counteract—the effects of time and age. A little encouragement from you today can go a long way.

    Pray this prayer: God, help me not to stand by while my marriage loses any more of its luster. Give me the kind of heart that keeps loving, keeps investing. Show me the best way to bless my wife today.

    Started reading Doctor Strange when I have spare time, took my mom to see movie a bit ago and apparently it has a different ending. Would have a recommendation for ya, but I don't read too often. Sorry!

     Dude, no need to apologize. Maybe you see a book someone else recommended and consider reading it. Just a thread to spark interest. Best part of your post was getting to spend time with your mom. That is what it's all about.

    Started reading the Index Card. I have been on a financial literacy kick lately and trying to learn as much as possible about finance/investing

     I'll look this book up. Thanks. Financial literacy isn't something I've been too interested in before. Might not hurt to give it a shot though. What was the catalyst to start reading about it?

     I’m a high school math teacher and I am trying to write a course description for a financial literacy class and hopefully eventually teach one. So, I have been trying to do as much research as possible, and learn things along the way, and I stumbled upon this book through a podcast. 

     That makes perfect sense. Best of luck. I hope you find yourself teaching financial literacy in the near future. Podcasts are great for book recommendations - great for knowledge in general.

    Great topic S4TF!

     

    Im usually reading two books at any given time. A fiction and a non-fiction. At the moment it’s the fourth book of the Lonesome Dove novels and a book about mushrooms. 

    BTW, A Brave New World is a classic. You should check it out. 

     If half the responses are anything like this one, this thread will be worth it. Thanks for sharing. I'm keeping track of good recommendations.
