Reading Log - October 14, 2022 (#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. Iโ€™m going to give it a try as I appreciate some of the ideas.

  • Gratitude: Itโ€™s important to remember all the people & things youโ€™re thankful for. All too ofthen itโ€™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.
