Hello and happy Friday!

I’m currently in the car (literally) typing up this description on my way to Dallas, Texas with my family. We’re on a road trip right now, and in 2 days I’ll be competing at the FBLA National Conference in San Antonio. But! I made sure to carve out some time to edit this video because I really wanted to talk about BOOKS.

I shared in this video that even though I strive for the habit of reading for 15 minutes per day, realistically, that only happens about every other day, at best. But I used to not do ANY reading outside of school, so whatever time I set aside to read a book of my choice is an improvement!

Today I'm doing a quick review of all of the books I've read so far in 2019. The SparkNotes version of this video: I would recommend them all. There you go!

But if it were that simple this wouldn’t be an 11-minute video. I have a few issues with some of the books, which I explain in more depth in the video. Digging into the reviews and criticisms of these books was actually super interesting and I think helped me to understand the books better!

I hope you find my mini reviews helpful, and please let me know if this video leads you to check out any of these books and read them for yourself!

Have you read any of the books I mention? 🤔

[VIDEO] How to STOP Procrastinating | Productivity Tips

So I may have procrastinated on making the video about procrastination... oof.

You see, literally no one is immune to procrastination, so I figured it was about time to make a video on some planning techniques, mindset shifts, and distraction management ideas that will help you to combat this universal problem.

I also shared some food for thought at the end because I think it’s important to remember that procrastination is more than just a nuisance that leads tol all-nighters working on school projects. Another name for it, in the words of Steven Pressfield, is "resistance", or "the universal force that acts against human creativity".

Procrastination, resistance, whatever you want to call it - it keeps us from working towards our dreams or leading fulfilling existences. Life's short. Too short to procrastinate ☺

Much love,
