Productivity Favorites from the week
Do you ever wish that you had a way to keep track of all of the amazing places and countries that you’ve visited? Make sure to check out this great for some fun and creative ideas. Oh, and #4 happens to be one of my personal faves.

To give you a sneak peak…here’s what the article has to has about the first habit, studying.
“First and foremost, you should never go a day without learning. Learning can happen in all forms. Personally, I study every day for a minimum of three hours.

I also put my phone in another room as I drink in the knowledge and wisdom of these books. All the books in the world have all the answers in the world.
