End of Year Post – What I’m Reading – The Week of December 29th

Thank you for reading along as I have navigated the launch of this weekly newsletter.  The feedback has been amazing – folks from all walks of life – not just business or tech or personal development – who write to tell me the value they are extracting from the resources I’m sharing.

I look forward to continuing to serve you more valuable and unique content.  Also, I plan on getting back to more traditional blogging in the new year so be on the lookout for some fresh perspectives from where I stand.

Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read, watched or listened to this week.

  • My Favorite Year-End Lessons Learned Post


These are the major things I’ve learned this year, in no particular order…

  • On Cultivating and Sustaining Love


Love is losing yourself in the process of caring about and showing undivided attention to someone or something, through ups and downs. It’s as simple and as hard as that.

  • On Planning For The Ups and Downs of Happiness


There are time when all the lies you have told yourself about yourself just fall away.”

  • On Attention Being A Valuable Resource


In many ways, we are what we pay attention to. The things that we work on also work on us. Everything we take in has an effect on the taker-inner, on us. Our attention is perhaps the most precious resource there is. We need to use it as skillfully as we can.”

  • On Fake Versus Real Toughness


The strongest people we know  tend to be caring, considerate, and calm. The people we know who want to be strong and tough — but who are not — tend to be loud, defensive, and overly proud.
