Key To More Willpower | Day 6 #30DayBlogBlitz

There’s an interview with Will Smith that I really like where he talks about priorities, and how they can make life easier. He says, “If you get your priorities straight, it’s really simple. [For example] either your family is first or your job is first. Just decide ahead of time. If you decide that your family is first, and you’re…

Using Your Bodies Natural Rhythms For Productivity

For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of making more money while working less hours (Duh. See all of us with losing Powerball tickets).

How To Have Happy Days

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” ~Annie Dillard Looking over my blog posts, I see titles like “A Bad Day..” and “The Most Miserable Months of My Life.” Not only does this make for the most depressing positivity blog on the internet, it’s not necessarily reflective of my everyday life.

11 Rules of Life

  Rule #1: The “No Complaining” Rule The No Complaining Rule is self-explanatory: You’re not aloud to complain about your situation. No complaining. Period. You’re not allowed to complain to your mom, to your girlfriend, not even to your cat. This puts us in an interesting spot, doesn’t it? We no longer have that outlet to express what’s wrong with…
