Welcome to the 4/7/17 edition of “Evan’s Friday Briefing,” a quick list of what I’ve been enjoying, learning, and trying out.
What I’ve Been Reading
Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” and Ernie Johnson Jr.’s new autobiography “Unscripted.” I actually haven’t read much on this vacation. But it feels great to do absolutely nothing besides sit in the sun most of the day. Plus the Masters are on.
What I’ve Been Listening To
We’ve been playing various types of music over the speakers at the house we rented, though my favorites were the songs of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.
Progress Update On My Socio-Political Project
The website is still coming along. It’s tough when you can’t meet up with your team members in person on a regular basis. We will initiate active campaigns rather soon, even if the website isn’t done. We can always tinker with the website; it’s more important to go public and start making a difference.
My Tip Of The Day
When getting into self-development, it’s easy to want to pack on 25 pounds of muscle, start building a million dollar business, read for an hour a day, and meditate for 30 minutes every morning all at the same time. But it’s just not possible. Focus on no more than two big goals at a time. Succeed at those before moving on to the others.
Great Quote I’ve Been Ruminating On
“A negative mind never attracts happiness or material success, but it will attract their opposites. You may trick yourself into believing that you are only playing devil’s advocate or searching for weaknesses in apparently good ideas, but in the end negative thinking always produces negative results. Just as your mind will work tirelessly to translate your positive thoughts into their physical equivalent, it will work equally hard to create negative results when all of your thoughts are negative.” – Napoleon Hill Foundation’s “Thought for the Day,” 4/3/17
