Top 10 Lessons I Learned in April 2017

Every month, I strive to learn and grow.  I do it with intention and with purpose.  My day starts with reading.  Throughout my day I have great conversations with others.  I listen to podcasts while driving and working out.  And from all of this, I keep a running log of the many, many lessons I learn, or am reminded of. 

Here are the Top 10 lessons I learned in April 2017:

  1. There are two ways to be wealthy: to get everything you want…or to want everything you have.  Which is easier, right here, right now?
  2. This is MY journey. Those on a similar journey will be attracted and want to follow.
  3. Be engaged fully with whomever I’m with at the time. But don’t be involved with the outcome.  All I can do is share what I know, but I take no responsibility for others choosing (or not) to apply what I share.
  4. We can never know the full impact of our life.
  5. “We buy things we don’t need to impress people we don’t like.” – Fight Club
  6. Good questions are what open people up, open new doors, and create new opportunities.
  7. We are not as smart and as wise as we’d like to think we are. Becoming wise comes from questioning and humility.
  8. We often place the most value on things that are difficult to obtain.
  9. We are constantly looking at the world around us and putting our own opinion on top of it.
  10. Looking up to the sky, gazing at the stars on a clear night, can remind us just how petty and trivial many of our earthly concerns are.

Keep learning.  Keep growing.  It is what we are designed to do as humans.
