I got the idea of keeping an ongoing recap of my week from an entrepreneur named Timothy Ferriss. For those who know Timothy Ferriss, you know he is a fearless leader who wrote a book titled, "The Four-Hour Workweek." If you haven't read his book, I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of it today. It will change the way you go about your day-to-day activities.
I'm calling my weekly series, "High Five Friday!" So in the spirit of High Five Friday, here is a weekly snapshot of what I enjoyed this week.
High Five Friday! - Week 1
1. Song I enjoyed listening to the most: “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd. I like the beat. People say it’s about a girl who introduces a guy to coke. The lyrics don't actually say that; it's just how people interpret it. But, who knows for sure? Anyway, I enjoy every beat of this song.
2. Funniest thing I saw: A pretzel shaped like a Treble Clef.
3. Best thing I read (in addition to the Bible):An inspirational book titled, “Steer Your Big Boat Your Own Way: An All-inclusive Master Guide to Boost up your Self Confidence, Build Self Esteem and Enhance Your Self Efficacy Instantly & Retain it Everlastingly.” That’s a long title by Udolph Singh. I had the fortunate opportunity to accept an invitation to write a review for this enlightening book.
4. Most exciting place I visited: I don’t get out much, but considering that I must enter something here, the most exciting place I visited this week was “Habitat for Humanity.” That place is amazing. It is operated by volunteers. Everyone there seem to be extremely happy to be there. Everything in the store is donated and the proceeds go to help volunteers build houses for the community. If you have a chance to visit a Habitat for Humanity in your area, do it. You will enjoy the service and the prices for their home building supplies and tools are extremely marked down as compared to big name brand stores.
5. Most inspirational message: "Your good reputation may open the door, but your talent lets you in." This is actually something I tweeted to make a point that people often give you opportunities just because of your reputation, but you then have an obligation to do an excellent job to show them you were worth it.
That's it for this week's High Five Friday! Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
