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
