How I Got 1% Better This Week

Faithful Subscriber,

Every Friday I share with you the 5 things that made me 1% better this week.  Each one falls into one of the following 5 categories:

  • Something that inspired me.

  • Something that I learned

  • The quote I found most impactful

  • The book I’m reading

  • Something that made me laugh

I hope that you will consider each of these things and use them to get 1% better this week. But you don’t have to….

Success Is Voluntary!

The Book I’m Reading


This book is changing the way I deal with people when the stakes are important and emotions are running high.

From the Amazon review page:

The New York Times and Washington Post bestseller that changed the way millions communicate

“[Crucial Conversations] draws our attention to those defining moments that literally shape our lives, our relationships, and our world. . . . This book deserves to take its place as one of the key thought leadership contributions of our time.”
―from the Foreword by Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Finish Strong!


Finish the week strong! Don’t slow down just because the weekend is in sight. (For you non-math majors, Friday is 20% of your week. Don’t squander it.)

I hope you have a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend. I’ll see you right back here Monday with my latest blog post.
