Beating Instant Gratification: Do The Hard Things | Day 21

“Do what is hard now, and life will be easy. Do what is easy now, and life will be hard.” I’ve been hitting the weights hard lately, and it feels great.

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…

5 Books That Will Help You Achieve Your Goals This Year
