Hanging out with hero’s…

We went to see Avengers Endgame with my brother and brother-in-law and it was great!

No spoilers here though. 🙂

I need to spend more time with Scott on purpose. Maybe I can talk him into a week long hike on the AT? 🙂

Hug your family and make time for them. Life is full of suprises and regrets are tough to live with.

Being deserving…

During my morning quiet time I was pondering where I am in life and what I’ve accomplished.

My thoughts center around the following question…What do I deserve?

I deserve the things I have, the relationships I’ve developed and the business I’m building because of hard work, discipline and a positive attitude toward life. I am where I am in life because of all the decisions I’ve made. Some were mistakes and some the best I could make at the time.

I don’t deserve the things I “want.” Like the level of health I “want” or the income I “want” because I haven’t put in the right amount of consistant effort. I see that clearly and plan to work harder for what I deserve. Want has nothing to do with deserve.

What do you deserve?

Ps. Pretty sure that’s a plane at 30,000 feet and not a UFO. But I want to believe we are not alone so maybe it is a UFO. 🙂

Be an investor…

Invest in your body as it is probably the single most important investment we can make in our life. Without our health life is harder. If we invest 30 minutes a day being more healthy it will pay huge dividends.

Invest in learning new things. This strengthens the brain and opens it up so new ideas can form.

Invest in personal development and understanding who you really are, what you really want from life and how to accomplish it. You have a gift to give the world. Figure out what it is.

Invest in relationships as they can enrich our life deeply. As we go through life we are blessed with a few very close friends. Go deep and not wide.

Invest in finances as there will be a rainy day. You can and should build a financial bubble around your family and then expand it to your close friends. If you are disciplined with money you can make a huge difference in other people’s lives too.

We are all investors and must invest our time. Of all our resources time is the one thing we can’t make more of. Choose wisely who you give your time too.

What will you invest in today? Think about it.

Feedback analysis…

…is a fancy way of saying that, instead of just using our gut feeling, we should instead test ourselves based on actual past successes and failures.

This sounds simple but it will show us that we have weaknesses in an area.

Simple but not easy.

Most will not do this for fear of exposing an area of weakness. For our ego is a strong force to harness.

But this is how we get better.

–>This IS how we get better.<–

-These are my notes from the book Managing Oneself by Peter Drucker

Get the book as it’s one I would call foundational to teaching us how to manage ourselves. Which is the first most important thing we can do.
