You, Too, Can Live Like Royalty and Delete All Your Social Media Accounts

Something to think about…

For centuries, inbred weirdos in castles ruled every aspect of our lives. These days, they mostly just suck up public assistance that might be better spent on, I don’t know, helping sick kids or something.

…and remember, you don’t even have to follow me on social media! You can just sign up for my newsletter!

16 Small Habits That Could Seriously Improve Your Life Within A Year

Not a huge fan of sharing things that come off BuzzFeed, but the list is decent and doesn’t require you to click next for each one.

Here’s the list, but click through below for the detail:

  1. Try reading for a set amount of time each day.
  2. Practice swapping ‘sorry’ for ‘thank you’ when the situation is right.
  3. Don’t just put things down, put them away.
  4. And do your dishes every single day.
  5. If something’s going to take you less than two minutes, just do it then and there.
  6. Try to go to bed and get up at similar times each day.
  7. Actually start flossing your teeth every day.
  8. Put all of your spare change into a jar for an entire year.
  9. Make a plan for the following day before you go to bed at night.
  10. Practice a new kind of handwriting, like cursive or calligraphy.
  11. Learn three words in a new language every day.
  12. Get into the habit of writing in a journal daily.
  13. Run for as long as you can…and then run again the next day, and the next.
  14. Make your bed every morning before you leave the house.
  15. Add new and healthy foods to your diet rather than focusing on removing other food groups.
  16. And try meditating, starting with just five minutes a day.

Work Won’t Remember That Weekend You Didn’t Give It. Friends Will.

Read the full article here but this was my main takeaway…

I worked weekends on many occasions. One weekend a good friend from university was coming to New York on the way to a business trip in Chicago. He was only coming to see me. But IBM had asked me to work that weekend. I struggled to choose between them, trying to work out if I could do both. I couldn’t. So I told my employer I could not work. Dwin and I had a great weekend exploring the city. He is the godfather to my daughter and we see each other regularly. IBM does not remember that I did not work that weekend. Dwin would always have.
