Monthly Digest 028
This is a monthly recap of resources that have helped me become the best version of me!
A QUOTE I love --
“Surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher."
A BOOK I finished --
Raise Your Game by Alan Stein Jr. // Alan has worked with some of the best athletes in the world. From Kobe to KD to Steph, and many in between. In this book he lays out the fundamentals that are important for improving your leadership and maximizing your performance. Whether you're an athlete or a business exec, this book is for you.
A PODCAST I listened to --
The Math Doesn't Work // Think back to your high school math class when the teacher wrote a painstakingly long formula on the board. And you thought, "well that doesn't make sense! It should be so much easier. There must be another way!" Well that's how I feel in regards to overseas contracts and agent commissions.
A PLACE I've traveled to --
Where: Rincón, Puerto Rico
--> I ventured out to the west of the island this time!
--> known as "the surfing town" (next time I'll rent a board!)
--> the picture is from "steps beach," self explanatory ;)
An ARTICLE I enjoyed --
Katie Ledecky's Dominance // An old article, but an important message regarding why the best are the best -- "you realize the differentiator is between the ears. And their hearts. Their appetite for competition, their unwillingness to lose, and their embracing the challenge."
A VIDEO you should watch --
The coronavirus pandemic seemed to accelerate the shift towards a more popularly accepted digital currency. I too find it confusing that you can use something which you can't even see to trade for goods or services. This quick skit provides a humorous take on cryptocurrency.
