A great explanation of leadership, by Simon Sinek. This is truly on point.

The 7 habits of highly effective people, by Stephen R. Covey.
There is a reason why this book has become such an icon within the field of business and personal development.
I usually say: The better person I become, the better business person I become. This is because the two are closely related.

There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
There are many different songs that I can listen to when I need to get motivated or inspired. Above is one of them and also one of my favorites.

P rocrastination is almost an artform. If you think about it, it is kind of fascinating to see how we go about so diligently, avoiding the things that we “should” do. We will basically do ANYTHING and everything else, and create ANY excuse for not to do that one thing that we really ought to be doing right now.. Yes, it is fascinating, but it is sad too, because deep down we know that we would be much better off if we did not postpone and procrastinate on things and instead just did them. Yes, it would require work, but we would be happy and content instead of fearful with a bad conscience. To not procrastinate, requires a huge amount of willpower. We all have it in us, but it is up to us to use our will instead of giving in to our feelings.

I love to read books and learn new things. I usually download Audiobooks from Audible and play them in my Audible app. If I really like the books, I might end up ordering a paperback copy from Amazon as well. Although I like the occasional fiction book, I usually go for books that can provide me with new insights, tools and information that can somehow contribute to me being the best version of myself. Under the menu tab “resources” and “books” you will find my reviews and recommendations going forward. My first book in this section, is a book that I read a couple of years ago, entitled: “Thinking Fast and Slow“:
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
