Reading Log - October 14 (#1)
It's been a little bit since I've posted one of these. Been busy working on other projects and playing Wrath of the Lich King. Anyway, here's the newest list.
Mike Crittenden: My list of my lists
I found this in one of the newsletters I subscribe to. I'm going to give it a try as I appreciate some of the ideas.
- Gratitude: It's important to remember all the people & things you're thankful for. All too ofthen it's easy to forget in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
- Stress & Suck: No one likes stress, but I think writing down some of the things that stress you out could help alleviate some of them.
- Goals: Keeping track of goals, even long-term can help keep myself accountable.
