The 4 Hour Work Week.
This book was great. I was leant it to read and have decided to buy my own copy so I can refer back to it.
Tim Ferriss writes common sense on how to work less and achieve a whole lot more than you thought you could.
Highly recommended reading.
Last night I went to the Foo Fighters concert in Auckland.
Dave Grohl said he wasn’t at his screaming best, but he was, and the crowd loved it.
So what did I learn from the Foo Fighters? Everyone wants to be entertained.
We love the entertainer.
Good stories, comedy, banter, we all love a laugh and it makes it easier to think to yourself, “This person is like me.”
I wrote this because I want you to think about it next time you meet someone or go home to your kids – DON’T be boring. Use humour, be enthusiastic and it will make a big difference to your life.
I have just finished reading ‘My Lobotomy’ by Howard Dully. An incredible story of a life interupted by an evil step mother, a distant father and a Doctor with a penchant for lobotomies.
Howard writes that everyone is a victim in someway and it is up to you to either use it as an excuse for failure, as he did for many years, or decide to you want something better for your life and go for it.
It is an amazing story and I trust Howard will become the successful man he was destined to be. I find it astonishing that even today children are mistreated by Doctors, who never have to ask for second opinion, and prescribe drugs to kids who are a ‘handful’ at home.
There have been a few of them lately and I will put them all up soon.
The one that made the biggest impact on me so far has been ‘A Piece of Cake’ by Cupcake Brown.
Her amazing story is a must read for everyone. Think you can’t be who or what you want to be? Read this book, nothing is impossible.
