📚 Book Summary:
This week's book is "Discipline is Destiny" by Ryan Holiday.
You should read this book if you are looking for inspiration to achieve your goals, stand taller in the daily battles of life, and maybe, especially if you are going through a rough patch. Ryan Holiday is a favorite of mine. His books have a great flow, and he is very skilled at cutting out all the useless fluff.
One of my favorite take away from the book is this:
"That's what being a pro is about: treating winning or losing as a chance to get right back to it. To come back to your groove and stay in it—because that's where you're happiest, most in control, most connected."
✅ Actionable advice:
When you catch yourself being a bit down at work, remind yourself: "This is what I signed up for. At this moment, I'm ensuring my family has a roof over their head and food on the table. And, by the way, isn't this what I would have loved to do when I had to crappy job back in college?"
