Floating: My secret weapon for goal setting

15 December 2016 | Comments [0] »

I love taking some time at the end of the year to create order and set some goals for the coming year. (I wrote in my newsletter about it today.)

Gretchen Rubin on self-knowledge

30 August 2013 | Comments [2] »

I’ve long been a fan of Gretchen Rubin and her Happiness Project.

She was one of the fantastic speakers at the World Domination Summit I attended in July. Her topic was self-knowledge and how being aware of who you are makes happiness much easier to achieve. It was fascinating and enjoyable.

At the ICD conference last week, I heard many great speakers. One of them was Fred Luskin, who spoke about forgiveness. A Stanford University professor, Dr. Luskin teaches about happiness and forgiveness, among other topics. His book,Forgive for Good, is very interesting.
