Monthly Digest 003
This is a monthly recap of resources that have helped me become the best version of me!
A QUOTE I love --
"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase."
A BOOK I finished -- Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi // "Networking" is a buzz word that people throw around all the time. But how do you really "network?" And what is the true value of your network? Keith explains the art of how he built his relationships and gives actionable advice on how to you should develop your own.
A PODCAST I listened to --
Purpose Driven Business, Education and Life featuring Rebekah Neumann // Rebekah is a founding partner of WeWork, along with many other titles. She explains why life is much bigger than anything material or superficial. A key takeaway for me was her definition of success. Her definition included fulfillment, happiness and generosity. WeWork was not started to make a ton of money. She simply followed her intuition of doing what she loved.
A PLACE I RECENTLY TRAVELED to --
Location --> Kutna Hora, Czech Republic
Reason --> Helped David Nurse w/ an Intensive Clinic for the U18 Czech National Team
Fun Fact --> The Chapel of All Saints has a basement full of thousands of human bones!
