Success Skills Coach- April 2023
AFib Is Not A Joke Last May I had a bout with AFib (atrial fibrillation), which I had never heard of before. I started having shortness of breath, dizziness and felt my heartbeat racing while lying down. After a cardiac ablation in September my heart is back to normal rhythm. But it turns out I’m in good company: Kareem Abdul Jabbar recently went public with his AFib — click here to view video. . .
“When You’re A Jet …” Last month Poland was the first NATO member to step up and offer Ukraine badly needed fighter jets to fend off Russia. I hope other NATO nations (including the US) do likewise so that Putin will eventually realize this is a war he cannot win and retreat. . . . You can buy a Ukraine candle — all proceeds go to a not-for-profit there. Or you can purchase a Ukraine Candle here. All proceeds to to a not-for-profit there.
Our Society Is Not Going to Pot After All A meta-analysis of 36 different scientific research papers published between 2013 to 2021 shows that the societal impact of cannabis legalization has led to some significant positive outcomes, including reduced use by teens and lower opioid overdoses. I don’t advocate heavy pot smoking but this analysis debunks some negative perceptions about marijuana use.
Book Recommendations – My learning goal is to get through at least 50 non-fiction books (including audio books) a year. This is where I find the ideas to help my clients grow their business. Below are the ones I read this past month.
The Rise of the Rest: How Entrepreneurs in Surprising Places are Building the New American Dream Thriving tech communities in Cincy, Indy, Chattanooga, even northwest Arkansas??? AOL co-founder Steve Case makes the case (pun intended) that you don’t need to be in Silicon Valley anymore to start up a successful new business.
Trust and Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others Instead of trying to motivate people, extend trust to them and help them connect to their own sense of purpose. That’s what will lead to self-motivation, the best motivator of all.
Discipline Is Destiny: The Power of Self-Control Don’t fear the “D” word — you will only be free when you embrace discipline, the building block of self-mastery.
Myth America: Historians Take On the Biggest Legends and Lies About Our Past This compilation of articles from bonafide historians (as opposed to opinions by politicians or TV personalities) will challenge your thinking on topics like American Exceptionalism, The New Deal and The Lost Cause. If reading it makes you uneasy, Jack Nicholson’s line from A Few Good Men is apropos: “You can’t handle the truth!”
