Hi everyone! It's a wet and windy day in Dublin.. hope it's nicer wherever you are! Here are 5 things I'd like to share with you today:
What I started reading
This month's book is "Start With Why" by Simon Sinek. You may know Sinek from a number of his viral videos - his TED Talk based on the same concept of this book is the third most-watched TED Talk of all time. The book asks why some people and organisations are more inventive, pioneering and successful than others, and why they are able to repeat their success again and again. According to Sinek, it doesn't matter what you do, it matters WHY you do it. Look forward to getting stuck in!
What video I watched
This clip has been doing the rounds this week, and rightly so. It's the visual embodiment of a phrase I love: "Be positive, patient and persistent.". You go, baby bear!
What I listened to
This week I got to listen to two of my favourite authors/entrepreneurs chatting for an hour and a half, and it was great. In this podcast, Tim Ferriss & Seth Godin discuss how to deal with being overwhelmed, how to say “no” to the unimportant and set boundaries, and how to find your “smallest viable audience” when it comes to marketing your business.

What quote I'm pondering
“One of the greatest discoveries a person makes is to find they can do what they were afraid they couldn't do.” - Henry Ford
