Laziness and Aggregation
This week, Three Action Thursday focuses on laziness and news aggregation (not aggravation) for efficiency. After that, some solid quotes to get you thinking about your life.
Video I Watched
The Pandemic Made You Lazy. In life and in business, the pandemic made us lazy. Maybe this sentence is true for you, maybe it is not. However, I bet most people if they are being honest will say they took their foot off of the gas pedal a bit. In this video Patrick Bet-David (PBD) focuses on business, however, it can definitely be applied to your personal life and how things have changed post-pandemic. Let PBD challenge you a bit.

Quotes I am Pondering
A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.
~ Tony Robbins, American life coach, self-help author and motivational speaker
Successful people are simply those with successful habits.
~ Brian Tracy, self-help author and motivational speaker
I don’t journal to ‘be productive.’ I don’t do it to find great ideas or to put down prose I can later publish. The pages aren’t intended for anyone but me. It’s the most cost-effective therapy I’ve ever found.”
~ Tim Ferriss, American entrepreneur, investor, author
